The Fall of Fogle …from Subway to Prison

His story inspired millions, it made him pitchman for Subway. Jared Fogle was best known for losing 200 pounds on Subway sandwiches. For 15 years Subway made him their pitchman…until now. It’s all over for Jared Fogle. He lost his job, it is reported that his wife is seeking a divorce and looking to deny him the right to see his children and now instead of inspring people to healthy eating he is disgraced as a sexual predator.

Fox59 News reported Fogle will admit to possession of child pornography and federal prosecutors in Indianapolis plan a news conference with details about the stunning case.

Subway terminated its 15-year association with Fogle, 37, last month following the damning 11-hour sweep of his property in a tony Indianapolis suburb.

“We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment,” Subway tweeted Tuesday evening.

That should go with out saying, no one is going to risk doing business with a known sex offender even I they helped make the company money like Jared Fogle did for the past 15 years.

The more this story unfolds the more this makes you sick.

“Today Jared Fogle has been charged and has admitted to participating to a five-year criminal scheme to exploit children,” Josh Minkler, an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of Indiana, said at a press conference.

Federal prosecutors allege in the documents that the married father of two traveled to pay for sex acts, including with minors, from 2007 until as recently as June and that he repeatedly planned business trips to coincide with his sexual pursuits

So it wasn’t as if he did this some time ago and then decided to stop…he was still up until June was still engaging in sexual acts with children…sick.

On Nov. 3, 2012, Fogle allegedly paid a 17-year-old girl who he had found online to engage in sex acts while he was staying at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, according to the papers. Several months later, he again paid her for sex acts while staying at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, according to the documents, which says the girl told Fogle her age when they first met and that he knew she was a minor.

After the first meeting, the documents said, Fogle texted the girl and offered to pay her a fee if she could find him another underage girl to pay for sex acts.

During these discussions, Fogle “stated that he would accept a 16-year-old girl, while stating that the younger the girl, the better,” the documents said.

Between 2011 and 2013, Fogle also repeatedly sent text messages to other escorts, “soliciting them to provide him with access to minors as young as 14 to 15 years,” the documents said, adding that he would only make such requests after engaging in sex acts with the escorts to “insure that they were not undercover police officers.”

The documents also alleged that Fogle on multiple occasions received sexually explicit images and videos produced by Russell Taylor, 43, who ran the charitable Jared Foundation.

Two months before Fogle’s home was raided, authorities arrested Taylor on seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Investigators said they discovered a cache of sexually explicit photos and videos Taylor allegedly produced by secretly filming minor children at his home.

Prosecutors also said that Fogle received from Taylor multiple images and videos, some of which were taken by a video camera hidden in a clock radio that filmed children changing clothes or bathing. Some were taken in buildings were Taylor lived.

The documents said Fogle knew those depicted were minors, some as young as 13 or 14 years old, and in some cases knew the minors involved by name and had met them “during social events in Indiana.”

Jared Fogle knew full well what he was doing and he knew full well what Russell Taylor was doing. This wasn’t something you just fall into, this was calculated and thought out enough to know how to make sure none of the children were undercover police .

As for restitution, The agreement released by prosecutors said Fogle agrees to pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims, who will each receive $100,000. He will also be required to register as a sex offender and undergo treatment for sexual disorders. He will be in prison 5-12 years since he likes to watch others on camera let’s see how he likes being watched and let’s see how he handles inmates who will certainly make it clear how they feel about child predators …

I don’t feel sorry for Jared Fogle or anyone like him who engages in something like this. On many levels, this is something that is hard to wrap my mind around. There are many things that you can do in life and while they may not be nice or right nothing is worse than harming women and children. And if you are a regular reader of this post then you know I have often stated we have to protect our children especially from monsters Fromm Jerry Sandusky (PennState) to Jared Fogle and all the unknown to the public monsters that lurk in the shadows that we don’t see but know they are out there. Finally one more monster is where he belongs, where he won’t be able to harm anymore children or have access to children, but he will be in place where others will have access to him in a way that he will understand what he put those young children through.
