Chrisley Knows Best: All About Todd And Julie’s First Day In Prison
The Chrisley Knows Best stars Todd and Julie have left their lives full of comforts and surrendered to the federal prison officials. The patriarch will be serving his time in Pensacola, Florida. His wife had to report to Tallahassee, Florida. It was a low-security federal correctional institution. But due to some last-minute changes, she had to go to Marianna. Not only this, but it seems that their procedures started as soon as they entered their new homes for almost two decades.
While entering the prison, Todd covered his face with a pillow while he surrendered in Florida. Meanwhile, Julie was accompanied by her father and was dropped at the spot by an unknown driver. Their first day started with a complete body check, including X-Rays, fingerprints, and a complete body scan. After that, the Chrisley Knows Best stars that used to spend $300,000 per year on clothes were now given their new prison attire. It is a white/brown shirt with bus pants and a pair of socks. They will wear this until they get a set of institutional clothing from the laundry department.
Then Todd and Julie will have to complete the procedures to get their ID cards. For that, they need to finish photographing and fingerprinting processes. Not only this, but these cards will even have their eye color, weight, and height mentioned on them. All prisoners must carry this all the time until they serve in prison. Then comes their medical and psychological evaluation phase. The Health Services Unit and the Psychology staff will conduct a few interviews and tests to know their mental and physical conditions. After completing all these formalities, they will have a counselor who will make them aware of the prison amenities and services.
