Former ‘Subway’ Spokesperson Jared Fogle Sentenced to Fifteen Years in Prison
Jared Fogle won’t be eating Subway anytime soon thanks to the prison sentence that was just handed down. As you may recall, Fogle was investigated for child pornography and then it came out via recordings that he had solicited minors for sex. He solicited both males and females and bragged about how much he loved it. His technical sentence is fifteen years and eight months but for some reason, I have a feeling that he will not serve that long but I am also stunned at how short this sentence seems. US District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt was the one who delivered the sentence to Fogle, who infamously lost over two hundred pounds via a Subway diet, had some choice words for him: “The level of perversion and lawlessness exhibited by Mr. Fogle is extreme. What a gift to have such a professional windfall in your lap.” Reuters is saying that Fogle’s defense team enlisted forensic psychiatrist, Dr. John Bradford, who testified that Fogle had an eating disorder that turned into hyper sexuality based on the amount of weight he had lost. “He traded a horrible food addiction for a horrible sex addiction,” Defense attorney Jeremy Margolis said, again, according to Reuters. That is putting what he did extremely mildly, just my opinion.
It is more than a horrible sex addiction, it is an abomination. The sentence was to be between five years (Defense) and twelve and a half years (Prosecution) but Judge Pratt felt that this was not long enough for what Jared had done so she handed down the longer sentence. The psychiatrist did say that the evidence he found of pedophilia was very “weak” and that he was “very treatable.” They have not said when Fogle is to enter into custody, what he will get out of his prison term, whether it be psychiatric help or help for what they have said is a “alcohol abuse/dependency” according to a filing. As long as he never does this to anyone ever again and at some point, really does feel remorse, maybe he can move on from this but that will be very hard. What do you think of the sentencing? Too short? Too long? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @haveuheard1.
