Josh Waites is breaking his silence as Todd and Julie Chrisley collectively serve 19 years in their respective federal prison. Who is he? Why does his name sound familiar? What does he have to say about the Chrisley family? Keep reading for the details.
Wait, Who Is He?
Todd and Julie Chrisley were first indicted in August of 2019 for tax evasion and bank fraud. A few months later, in October of the same year, Todd and his wife filed a lawsuit against Joshua Waites. As Daily Mail reminds us, Josh Waites was the director of the Georgia Department of Revenue’s office of special investigations at the time. Todd and his wife Julie claimed that Josh was abusing his power and position with the Georgia Department of Revenue for the purpose of “bogus tax evasion claims.”
With Todd and Julie Chrisley not only found guilty but doing pretty extensive time behind bars, Joshua is breaking his silence. Telling his side of the story. His truth.
Josh Waites Breaks Silence: Todd Chrisley Is “Where He Belongs”
Taking to Facebook (and tagging his wife), Josh explained that a lot of people had reached out to him the week that Todd and Julie Chrisley officially reported to their respective federal prisons. He described the moment as “exciting.” Josh proceeded to clarify this was the first time he had ever broken his silence and spoken out about the details of what Todd Chrisley did to Josh and his family.
For the next 5.5 years Todd and Julie along with a team of lawyers have sued me, attempted to have me arrested, made podcasts, instagram and Facebook posts about me, my family, and my co-workers even going so far as to post a picture of me and my daughter claiming I stole millions of dollars of tax payer money.
Josh noted that all of this happened while Todd and Julie were facing as much as 30 years () behind bars for bank fraud and tax evasion. He continued: “This is what he has done for years, being involved in dozens of lawsuits over the years, his plan is always to attack and lie in an attempt to intimidate.”
Joshua Waites firmly believes Todd Chrisley was under the impression that attacking Josh would serve as a smokescreen that only helped his own federal case. Ultimately, however, he was wrong.
Toward the end of his lengthy statement, Josh noted that he did not think Todd Chrisley was a very good man. Moreover, he believed he was right where he served to be: In a federal prison.
For those of you that know me, knew this was not true. While they cost me a lot they have not taken away my friends, my family or the people I care about. In the last few years everything he has said has been proven false, and he is right where he belongs, In prison for 12 years and Julie for 7, ending decades of fraud by a morally bankrupt couple.
