Grayson’s accident occurred a little over a week before Todd and Julie are set to appear in a courtroom for a sentencing hearing. The couple was convicted of financial crimes in June.
Prosecutors in the case are asking the judge to sentence Todd to between 17 and 22 years in prison and Julie to 10 to 13 years in prison, according to court documents obtained by FOX5.
Todd was convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

Julie was convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States. She was also hit with wire fraud and obstruction of justice charges.
The charges the two were convicted of typically carry a sentence anywhere between 10 and 30 years. Prosecutors also want the Chrisleys to pay $20 million, according to the court documents.
The “Chrisley Knows Best” stars acknowledged the conviction during a podcast episode. Despite being “not allowed” to discuss the case in-depth, the couple wanted the audience to know “that it’s a very sad, heartbreaking time for our family right now.”
“But we still hold steadfast in our faith, and we trust that God will do what he does best because God’s a miracle worker,” Todd said.
“We’re alive and kicking, and we appreciate all the support we have received from everyone.”

Todd and Julie’s daughter, Savannah, recently showed support for her parents during an appearance on “Entertainment Tonight.”
“They’re pushing through. We’re at a place where we put our faith in God. We definitely don’t put our faith in the system,” Savannah told the outlet.
She added: “I’ve never seen two people, my parents, be so steadfast in their faith and in prayer… just literally on their knees every morning praying. It’s just so admirable, and that’s kinda just my focus. Just watching them and still learning… growing from them in times like this, and just kinda staying strong through it all… knowing that, in the end, the truth will prevail. And it may get harder before it gets easier, but we have faith.”
