Savannah Chrisley is finding the irony in Todd Chrisley teaching finance classes to reduce his prison sentence.

During an episode of the Unlocked with Savannah Chrisley podcast, the 26-year-old eponymous host revealed that her parents Todd and Julie Chrisley — who are currently serving prison sentences for bank and wire fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy charges — have been teaching classes to reduce their time in prison through the First Step Act.

According to the Chrisley Knows Best alum, the First Step Act was established to assist prisoners with their readmission into society after serving their sentences through taking and teaching courses in prison.

"Dad's definitely taught some classes too," Savannah said, while sharing how her parents have taken classes, and also begun teaching them, to earn more credits. "Trauma is one of them. I think another one was a financial class, which how ironic?"

She added, "I know [Julie] definitely taught classes, like she taught a real estate class, she's got all these certificates from teaching and completing classes and all these things. Overachiever Julie is... always been."

In September, PEOPLE confirmed that Todd, 54, and Julie, 50, had already been granted reduced sentences.

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons' online inmate search system, the Chrisley family patriarch will now leave the Federal Prison Camp Pensacola on Jan. 22, 2033, which is nearly two years before his original 12-year sentence was meant to conclude.

Julie’s seven-year sentence, on the other hand, was shortened by 14 months. She will now be released from the Federal Medical Center Lexington on Oct. 19, 2028.

The couple were indicted in August 2019 for 12 counts of bank and wire fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy, all of which they have denied. The couple was cleared of their state tax evasion charge in Georgia in October 2019 but continued to face federal charges for allegedly evading federal taxes.

Shortly after the news of their reduced sentences, the Chrisley's attorney, Jay Surgent, told PEOPLE he was hopeful that the couple's sentencing times would be reduced even more.

"They were able to get some time off for both of them," Surgent said, adding that upcoming legal proceedings on Nov. 1 could trim even more time off. "There's going to be the adoption of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, changes, modifications, recommendations for reduction of sentences for nonviolent offenders. So [I] don't know at this point in time, but they should be getting two points a piece for that. So that'll further reduce their sentences."
