In the clip, Perez Hilton asked, "There must have been a point where his lawyer said to him, 'Listen it's looking like you're going to lose,'" to which the 25-year-old bluntly stated, "No."

"If I'm your dad and I know that I'm innocent but my lawyers telling me that I'm going to lose, well fudge, even though I'm innocent I don't want to spend 12 years in prison. That conversation never happened?" the writer told Savannah, to which she explained, "No. It never happened."

"I think the biggest thing that he was facing from prosecutors was life in prison," the beauty queen said. "I will never forget sitting in that courtroom and hearing the prosecutors and the judge say that's what they're asking for. You will never forget those moments."

In the end, the married couple were both dealt jail time, with Todd and Julie spending a combined 19 years behind bars for running a multimillion dollar bank fraud and tax evasion scheme.

"I know the things they have and have not done. I know the witch hunt. When the government wants someone, they want someone," Savannah spilled in a previous interview after their sentencing. "They're going to do whatever it takes to make it look how they need it to look. There's no resentment whatsoever."

"I will never forget when they stood up to read the verdicts and it was like, guilty, guilty, guilty, like over and over and over again," she continued. "And I just saw the looks on my parents' faces and just everything, they were just in tears. We were not expecting that, we were like, 'There's no way.'"
