Jared Fogle Sentenced to 15 Years in Prison for Child Pornography

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.
