“Cheer” star Jerry Harris and Julie Chrisley are 2 names you’d never expect to see in the same sentence, but they’re now sharing the same address … in a federal lockup.
Here’s the deal … Harris, an ex-cheerleader from the Netflix hit series, was incarcerated at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky, last August — and the “Chrisley Knows Best” star checked in there Tuesday.
It’s a minimum security satellite camp — it won’t be confused with a SuperMax — but that doesn’t mean Julie and Jerry get to socialize in the yard. For obvious reasons, we’re told the feds keep male and female inmates in separate sections of the facility.
As we reported, Julie was convicted last June for bank fraud, wire fraud and tax evasion, and got a seven-year sentence — and despite the prison’s name, she is not in need of any medical treatment.
Same goes for Jerry … the BOP confirmed inmates are housed at FMC Lexington for both medical and non-medical reasons.
Jerry’s attorney, Todd Pugh tells us his client is “doing well for someone who is in prison.” He adds, Jerry has “acclimated himself to custodial life and is participating in every type of self-betterment program available.”
Sounds like sound advice for FMC’s latest inmate — in Julie’s new world, seems like Jerry might know best.
