Julie Chrisley could be home much sooner than expected.

A judge ruled the Chrisley Knows Best star's sentence would be vacated after they determined there was no evidence that she'd been involved in the bank fraud conspiracy in 2006. Her involvement reportedly began in 2007, nullifying her sentence that had been incorrectly based on the previous date.

Julie Chrisley is set to be resentenced.

"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 decision 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."

Although an official ruling has yet to be made, her lawyer, Jay Surgent, told RadarOnline.com that Julie's sentence may be "significantly knocked off by 1-2 years" and she could even be home as early as "next spring or summer."

"It's a big, big deal," he said.
