Saying he's "disappointed with the verdict," Morris teased RadarOnline.com by stating they "expect to appeal."

Assistant US Attorney Annalise Peters claimed Todd and Julie exaggerated their earnings to banks to borrow more than $30 million. The government accused the couple of using the money to fund their lavish lifestyles before becoming reality show icons.

"They made up documents and they lie through their teeth to get whatever they want, whenever they want it," Peters stated in court, alleging that Todd and Julie hid the earnings they made on the show from the IRS.

The jury found Todd and Julie guilty on all counts.

The famous TV personalities maintained their innocence and argued that someone else had complete control of their finances.

The accusations against Todd and Julie run deep.
