Under federal law, getting out super early for good behavior isn’t really an option for Julie Chrisley. As Tv Shows Ace previously reported, federal law requires inmates to serve 85 percent of their sentence. After serving 85 percent of her sentence, Julie would be eligible to get out early for good behavior. This, however, was assuming she was considered to be a “model inmate” during her time behind bars.
As fans know, Julie Chrisley is currently serving a seven-year sentence behind bars at FMC Lexington, Kentucky. The facility she ended up at left fans scratching their heads as the website describes it as “an administrative security federal medical center with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp.”
The family, however, insists there was no medical reason why Julie was assigned to this prison. Even their lawyer has said they don’t know why she was assigned to this particular facility as it wasn’t their decision nor did they give any input on it.
Some Chrisley Knows Best fans are wondering when 85 percent of Julie Chrisley’s sentence will be up. When will she be eligible to be considered for an early release? Fortunately, public records of her inmate details to confirm an early release date for Julie has been determined.
Earliest release date for Julie Chrisley revealed
Per public records, the earliest release date for Julie Chrisley is January 2nd, 2029. Doing the math, that is a little less than six years from now. So, if Julie is determined to be a perfect inmate, she could shave roughly a year off of her sentence for good behavior.
As fans know the Chrisley family is hoping to shave a lot more than a year off of her sentence as they continue to pursue an appeal.
To date, Todd and Julie Chrisley have maintained that they are innocent of the crimes they’ve been accused of. Per the federal judge, not owning up to their crimes and apologizing is part of the reason they landed 12 and 7 years behind bars. Admitting guilt, however, was a double-edged sword for the family as they intended to appeal their situation with the hopes of a retrial. If Todd and Julie had admitted guilt, they would have destroyed any chance at a retrial. So, they didn’t really have a choice but to let the judge throw the book at them.
