According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, the stars have asked the judge for an extension to file the paperwork required to ask for a new trial.

They said the new legal team members need time to go over all the legal filings in their criminal case.

In their new motion, Todd & Chrisley also claimed to be having issues obtaining trial transcripts from the court reports. They said they need the transcripts to put together their arguments.

“The Court Reporter has estimated that it will take “at least 3 months” to prepare the complete transcript of trial,” their attorney claimed.

Prosecutors accused the couple of filing false tax returns with the help of their accountant Peter Tarantino. The reality stars allegedly defrauded banks by submitting false information.

The couple's attorney Bruce Morris told Radar he was "disappointed with the verdict" and said they expected to appeal.
