Savannah Chrisley is ensuring her parents do not suffer behind bars!

The Chrisleys became a household name following the debut of their reality TV show "Chrisley Knows Best" in 2014. The USA Network TV show followed the opulent lifestyle of real estate tycoon Todd Chrisley and his family.

Less than a decade after achieving fame for being millionaire socialites, the proud clan fell from grace after the patriarch and his wife, Julie Chrisley, were found guilty of tax evasion and fraudulent activities.

After receiving a joint sentence of 19 years for their crimes, their oldest daughter has been holding the fort in their absence. However, the blonde beauty continues to fight for her parents' well-being in what she believes to be an unjust criminal system.

In a recent Instagram Story update, the "Unlocked With Savannah Chrisley" podcast host shared a screenshot of a news article. In the image, the 25-year-old had highlighted several points she wanted her social media followers to notice.

The press release addressed the induction of Colette S. Peters as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons in 2022. Before receiving this position, Ms. Peters served as Director of the Oregon Department of Corrections (ODOC) for ten years and has an accumulated experience of 30 years in public safety.

Given her stellar accomplishments, the first female ODOC director made the perfect candidate to help reform what had been described as a "beleaguered agency." The Biden administration chose Ms. Peters to replace the former director Michael Carvajal, who resigned in January.

Carvajal's resignation came amid significant backlash from Congress after Associated Press investigators uncovered "widespread corruption, misconduct, and sexual abuse of female inmates." Savannah highlighted that Peters's takeover came a week after a Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations hearing about the situation.

The former director was forced to attend the trial by subpoena. However, Carvajal denied any wrongdoings and did not accept responsibility for the "culture of corruption and misconduct" that had plagued the system under his watch.

The second daughter of the Chrisley family was particularly focused on the section discussing Carvajal's irresponsibility as she wrote, "TAKE NOTE…A culture of corruption and misconduct…" This post about the terrible criminal system marked one in many as the podcaster frequently aired her disappointment about prison management.

Per The Blast, the media personality previously shared on her podcast that her grandmother, Nanny Faye, could not visit her son and daughter-in-law in prison. The older woman was prevented from seeing the couple because of documentation issues.

"You have to jump through hoops for visitation," Savannah said about the issue. Regarding life without her parents, the socialite admitted on a different podcast episode that it was not easy living without her loved ones.

Nanny Faye jumped in to discuss how her son and daughter-in-law's absence had affected her emotionally. The 79-year-old opened up about Julie's dedication to her well-being during her battle with bladder cancer.

"There wasn’t one treatment [for my bladder cancer] where my precious daughter-in-law wasn’t with me — not one time," Savannah's grandmother wept. "Through it all, she’s been with me."

Savannah then added that her mother was a natural caregiver, noting that Julie cared for the whole family. Without the "What's Cooking With Julie Chrisley" host, the household no longer had the same spark.

In an Instagram Story update, the blonde bombshell shared a picture of a news headline. The press release featured a story about a murderer convicted of killing a father of two children. The story read:

"A man who confronted, shot, and killed another man who was walking with his two children last year was sentenced Wednesday to 13 years in prison."

Alongside the headline was a mugshot of the convicted killer. In her post, Savannah highlighted the criminal's 13-year sentence. By comparison, Todd serving a 12-year sentence for tax and fraud evasion was only a year short of being the same punishment as a murder charge.

Confused about why her folks received such long sentences without hurting or taking any life, the media personality added the words "Hmmm…make it make sense" to her Instagram Story post.
