Disgraced Subway pitchman Jared Fogle was sentenced to over 15 years in prison for charges related to sex with minors and child pornography.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, describing Fogle’s level of “perversion and lawlessness” as “extreme,” ordered Fogle on Thursday to serve 188 months in prison — 20 more than the advisory guidelines. Fogle pleaded guilty to one count of traveling to engage in sexual conduct with a minor and one count of receiving child pornography. He must participate in a sex offender treatment program while in prison.

Prosecutors had asked for a 12.5-year jail sentence, while Fogle’s attorneys had sought a five-year term.

Under a plea deal, Fogle must register as a sex offender after his release (he’ll be eligible for parole after 13 years), have his digital devices monitored and pay a $175,000 fine.

“Not a day will go by where I don’t think about them and what I did to impact their lives,” Fogle said in court about his victims, holding back tears. “It is my intent to learn from these experiences so that I never, ever do these things again.”

“At the time, I really didn’t think through what I was doing,” Fogle insisted.

Although Pratt said Fogle appeared “painfully aware of the harm he’s caused his victims,” she said the fact that he used his fame to lure victims was inexcusable. He even asked prostitutes to procure children for him in various states.

“Mr. Fogle used his wealth and fame to entice these victims,” she said “Mr. Fogle was living a double life and for many years was engaged in a life of deception and depravity.”

After an FBI raid on his home in July, Fogle plead guilty in August to charges related to sex with minors and child pornography. He recently paid $1 million in restitution to 10 of his underage victims.

    The various perversions in this world are sickening. I hope the Hollywood pedos are taking note, including a certain director known for his “pool parties” that the justice system does not care about fame and will put your ass away for a lo-o-o-o-ng time.

    I do not think this is Justice at all. Sorry or not. I dont think he is still being completely truthful. He said he was not thinking things through yet he traveled to have sex with minors. He thought about what he was doing. He may have been in tears but was he in tears for what he had done or for getting caught? Most do that because they got caught.

    Being a victim of child molestation and being a death penalty proponent I believe he got off easy. Those children lost their innocence and have the scars to deal with the rest of their life’s Jared still get off easy (No Pun Intended). I think that he (and all like him, including rapists) have no other option then the Death Penalty. That is what I think he should have received.

    Sorry for his crimes or not. Asking forgiveness or not, he is a monster. He will always have those tendencies. It is proven that you cannot reform a child molester and that his probability of re offending is 75 to 80 percent.

    The death penalty for him is the only thing that there is.

    “sex with minors”… NO. Call it what is was: rape. Children cannot consent to sex. They were raped. Let’s not make this nice for the criminal.

  4. Donn Johnson says:

    people have NO IDEA how many people THEY think that walk the ‘straight & narrow’, who preach the “gospel”& & ‘act’ as though they would NEVER do what Jared DID have DONE IT & CONTINUE to do it until THEY THEMSELVES are caught…they change their tactics WHENEVER someone ELSE gets caught, BUT they NEVER CHANGE!!! take it from someone that was molested for YEARS & NO ONE BELIEVED ME! cause they were pillars of the ‘community’, etc.

    And I’m only saying this because you seem to comment on every article on this site that has to do with child sex abuse, always in defense of the abuser, and it is disturbing as f*…

    There are six people on the National Sex Offender database named Jonathan Hughes. Which one of them is you?

    No, Spike. You mean LET him bend over to get the soap when he’s showering, don’t you?

  7. Matthew says:

    The topic is child rape.

  8. Lisa says:

    Only?! He deserves life in prison, if only to keep him out of society and away from children.

  9. Dick Delson says:

    He’s a creep.
