They are both terrified of being incarcerated.” The source also told us that Todd and Julie are “putting their faith in God” and still have not given up hope. “They are praying that their appeal will overturn their convictions and set them free, but having no guarantees is extremely unnerving,” they continued. “This is the worst possible scenario, and it is playing out in front of all their fans. They are putting their faith in God now.”

I am heartbroken and navigating this process the best way I know how.”
