Savannah Chrisley vowed to “fight” for her mom, Julie Chrisley, after the latter began her years-long prison sentence on Tuesday.

“Will forever fight for this smile ❤️ I love you mama,” she proclaimed across a picture of a smiling Julie via her Instagram Stories Tuesday.

Savannah’s message comes hours after Julie and Todd Chrisley reported to their respective prisons to begin their combined 19-year sentence for fraud and tax evasion.

Todd, 53, is serving his 12-year sentence in Florida at the Federal Prison Camp Pensacola, while Julie, 50, is doing her seven-year sentence in Kentucky at Federal FMC Lexington.

Upon release, the reality couple will each have to serve 16 months of probation.

Despite their sentencing, the former “Chrisley Knows Best” stars have maintained their innocence and have even filed to appeal their convictions.

Savannah, 25, recently questioned why her parents received a longer prison sentence than “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” alum Jen Shah, who was sentenced to six-and-a-half years on Jan. 6 for her nationwide telemarketing scheme, which primarily targeted the elderly.

“Put the cases side by side, and it makes no sense — it just doesn’t,” she said while comparing the crimes with her mom on Tuesday’s pre-recorded episode of her podcast, “Unlocked.”

“There were hundreds of victims who were elderly, and people that provided statements that lost their homes, threatened to end their lives,” Savannah continued. “There were so many different things, and she got six and a half years. Make that make sense!”

Savannah argued that Shah, who plead guilty to wire fraud last July, had admitted her guilt, while her parents have always proclaimed their innocence.

“You have someone who has not admitted to guilt and who will stand firm in that,” she exclaimed. “We’re standing by our truth that it is not guilty, [and] there are no victims.”

Julie agreed with her daughter’s sentiments, adding that her and Todd’s trial involved “no victim statements.”

“None of it adds up, and to me, there’s more to it,” the matriarch admitted. “I have committed myself to figuring out what that is and for us to get to the other side of this so that we can help other people who are going through things like this.”
