While it's great news for Julie, Todd wasn't as lucky. The judges upheld his conviction.

"After careful consideration, and with the benefit of oral argument, we affirm the district court on all issues except for the loss amount attributed to Julie,” the legal documents obtained by read. “The district court did not identify the evidence it relied on to hold Julie accountable for losses incurred before 2007, and we cannot independently find it in the record.”

"So we vacate Julie’s sentence and remand solely for the district court to make the factual findings and calculations necessary to determine loss, restitution, and forfeiture as to Julie and to resentence her accordingly,” the judges continued.

The Chrisley's appeal attorney, Alex Little, released a statement shortly after the ruling.

"We're pleased that the Court agreed that Julie's sentence was improper, but we’re obviously disappointed that it rejected Todd’s appeal," Little told PEOPLE.

"With this step behind us, we can now challenge the couple's convictions based on the illegal search that started the case," he added. "The family appreciates the continued support they've received throughout this process. And they're hopeful for more good news in the future."
