Thursday, Subways former spokesman Jared Fogle was sentenced in a federal court to over 15 years in prison on child pornography charges as well as other charges on sexual crimes.
The sentencing came as Fogle plead guilty on various charges following an July investigation into a criminal compliant pertaining to the receipt and distribution of child pornography. As authorities investigated the compliant, they were able to locate illicit materials at Fogles home produced by Russell Taylor the former executive director of The Jared Foundation.
Before entering his guilty plea during Thursdays hearing, U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt asked Fogle whether he understood the punishment he could face and he answered, Yes, your honor. I do.
Fogle has admitted paying for sex with girls as young as 16 and receiving child pornography produced by Russell Taylor… Authorities said Taylor secretly filmed 12 minors as they were nude, changing clothes, or engaged in other activities using hidden cameras in his Indianapolis-area residences to produce child pornography. Taylor has agreed to plead guilty to child exploitation and child pornography charges.
Prosecutors said in a sentencing memorandum filed last week that Fogle received photos or videos from Taylor of eight of those 12 youths, and that some of those images were of girls as young as 12. Fogle could have stopped Taylor from victimizing some of minors, prosecutors have said, but he instead encouraged Taylor to produce additional child pornography.
Fogle agreed to pay a total of $1.4 million to his 14 victims, with each getting $100,000.
Enjoy your time in prison Jared… Inmates have a reputation for being extremely tolerant toward pedophiles.
