It’s horrible news and they were not expecting to be found guilty. Their whole life changed in that moment.”

After a lengthy trial, the jury found the couple guilty of all charges. The USA personalities were indicted for 12 counts of tax evasion bank and wire fraud as well as conspiracy in 2019. Todd denied the claims in a lengthy statement at the time, alleging that the pair’s former employee Mark Braddock was attempting to get “revenge” on them.
