Todd and Julie Chrisley are not going down without a fight, and they’re hopeful they’ll emerge victorious.

One day after the two were sentenced to a combined total of 19 years behind bars for financial crimes, they vowed to appeal the decision and explained why they were “optimistic about the road ahead.”

“Yesterday was a difficult day for the Chrisley family. But Todd and Julie are people of faith, and that faith gives them strength as they appeal their convictions,” the duo’s attorney, Alex Little, told People Tuesday.

“Their trial was marred by serious and repeated errors, including the government lying to jurors about what taxes the couple paid,” Little claimed.

“Based on these issues, we are optimistic about the road ahead.”

Todd, 53, was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for bank fraud and tax evasion. Julie, 49, was sentenced to seven years for her participation in the crimes. Both of their sentences will be followed by a 16-month probation period.
