On Friday (June 24), the 53-year-old reality star spoke out about after he and wife Julie Chrisley were found guilty of tax evasion and bank fraud earlier this month.

“I want you all to know that the messages that we’re receiving, the mail that we’re receiving, the gifts that people are leaving at our doors — you know, the flower arrangements. All this stuff is just overwhelming,” Todd said on his podcast, Chrisley Confessions, according to TMZ.

While Todd says that the gifts are “very much appreciated,” he wants fans to hold off on sending his family physical items.

“We don’t want you sending us flowers,” Todd said. “We don’t want you wasting your money on things like that. You know, the gifts and things like that, you know — we don’t need anything.”

He then went on to ask fans to pray for them instead.

“Really, the best gift that you can give us is prayer,” Todd said. “Our family, we’re all doing as well as can be as expected during this and this storm that we’re going through.”

He also added that they’ll “continue to hold our head up and move forward. That’s kind of where we are with things right now.”

Todd and Julie were accused of creating false documents to secure $30 million in bank loans in order to foot the bill for their expensive lifestyles. They then filed for bankruptcy to avoid paying the more than $20 million they owed.

Prosecutors said the couple intentionally “swindled” smaller banks to rack up the $30 million bill between 2007 and 2012, which was just a couple of years before their reality show debuted on USA.

Todd and Julie face up to 30 years behind bars. Their sentencing date hasn’t been scheduled yet.
