Reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley are now being held by federal prison officials, according to their attorney Alex Little.

The couple, who were sentenced last month to jail for fraud and tax offenses, notified their assigned prisons in Florida and Kentucky ahead of Tuesday’s deadline, which is noon local time, Little told CNN.

Todd Chrisley has been serving 12 years at FPC Pensacola, a minimum security facility in Pensacola, Florida.

Julie Chrisley is serving her seven-year sentence at FMC Lexington, Kentucky, which is described as a “federal security medical center with minimal satellite security camps” on the prison’s website.

The Chrisleys, known for their reality show Chrisley Knows Best, were convicted in June in a Georgia court of conspiracy to defraud banks with fraudulent loans worth more than $30 million.

The couple and their accountant were also convicted of several tax offenses, including attempting to defraud the IRS and evading collection of back taxes, according to the Justice Department.

The Chrisleys maintain their innocence and appeal their cases.

“Chrisley Knows Best” debuted in 2014 on USA Network. The abbreviated tenth season is scheduled to air sometime this year.
