The Chrisley family has made headlines in recent weeks because of Todd and Julie Chrisley's legal battles. The trial's publicity also drew attention to other family members, including Chloe Chrisley and her mom.
An Atlanta federal jury found reality stars Todd and Julie Chrisley guilty of tax evasion and bank fraud. The verdict marked the end of nearly three weeks of testimony from prosecutors and witnesses.
The "Chrisley Knows Best" stars were federally indicted on 12 counts, including wire fraud, conspiracy to commit bank fraud, and conspiracy to defraud the United States. They were found guilty on all counts on June 7 and could face up to 30 years behind bars.

Todd had previously denied any wrongdoing and maintained they had several hard evidence and witnesses to prove it. The recent verdict is a blow to the family, which has been a source of entertainment for many TV viewers.
WHO IS CHLOE CHRISLEY?
Among the family members who have captured the hearts of reality series fans is Chloe Chrisley, Todd and Julie's granddaughter. The family's youngest member, Chloe, is widely adored for her hilarious antics and for causing trouble for Todd.
Chloe appears to be everyone's favorite on the show, with family members, usually Todd, often spoiling her. One particularly touching scene shows the little girl running into Julie's arms at her preschool graduation.
Chloe also stands out because of her different appearance. While the rest of the Chrisleys are entirely Caucasian, Chloe is biracial. Born in 2012, she is the daughter of Todd's eldest son, Kyle, and Angela Johnson, who is Black.
Kyle and Angela are no strangers to legal issues. In 2016, she was accused of defrauding Medicaid and food stamps by listing Chloe as a dependent, despite Todd having full legal custody of Chloe.
The case has already been resolved, however. Staying under the radar, Angela last updated her Twitter feed, which included many cute images of her and Chloe, in 2016. In her bio, she declared she would do anything for her "beautiful baby girl."
WHAT HAPPENED TO KYLE CHRISLEY?
In May 2019, Kylie was arrested in Oklahoma for possession of methamphetamine but was released after charges against him were dropped. Given Kyle's brushes with the law and struggles with mental illness, Todd and Julie were granted full custody of Chloe in 2014.
Kyle, who battled addiction and spent time in rehab, had a strained relationship with Todd. Their relationship became even tenser after Todd was granted full custody of Kyle's daughter Chloe.
Amid years of drug use, Kyle caused conflicts within the family. Kyle, who has been in and out of rehab around 40 times, previously slammed his dad, claiming that he used his young daughter to boost TV show ratings.
Kyle revealed in 2017 that he had been sober for four years and had moved into a 3,000-square-foot home with his then-wife Alexus. He was estranged from his famous family at the time.
But in 2019, the son and father patched things up. Their reconciliation came amid Todd's tax investigation and after Kyle attempted to take his own life. Todd previously stated that Kyle developed suicidal thoughts as a result of a medicine he was taking.
