Former Subway Sandwich Spokesperson, Jared Fogle, Says Judge Who Sentenced Him In Pedophilia Case Was Biased Against Him

The man who made millions as a Subway restaurant spokesperson found his life crumble after he was charged with pedophilia and child pornography. He made a plea deal, and the prosecutor recommended a sentence of 12 years, but the judge decided to sentence him to 15 years and 8 months behind bars.

The admitted pedophile claims the judge is biased against child molesters because she's the mother of two teen girls.   

Jared Fogle spent years pitching the 'Subway diet' on commercials after he lost over 200 pounds eating nothing, but Subway sandwiches every day. The fast food franchise hired him after they got wind of his unusual diet plan and designed a campaign around it, boasting that their sandwiches were healthier than greasy burgers and fries.

Fogle became a celebrity who filmed more than 300 commercials, made numerous appearances on television and film, and toured the country as a Subway spokesperson. In 2015, he was worth an estimated $15 million until it all came crashing down around him.

Fogle established a non-profit organization in 2004 to raise awareness about childhood obesity. The director of his foundation, Russell Taylor, was arrested on child pornography charges in 2015, and Fogle broke off all contacts with him.

USA Today did some investigating later that year and found that the Jared Foundation had not actually issued any grants or funds for the cause it was allegedly meant to promote. By digging into the foundation's tax records, a quarter of the funds were unaccounted for. An investigation into the sandwich hawker found that not only was his foundation a sham, but that he was in possession of child pornography and had paid to have sex with one 17-year-old girl.

Prosecutors also had engaged in a text message conversation with a madam seeking children for sex, telling her that he 'craved' Asian girls and would 'pay big' for children (male or female) around 14 years old.
  


Fogle’s life fell apart instantly. His wife, who knew nothing of her husband’s secret life, took his children and left him, immediately filing for divorce. Subway denounced him and quickly removed any sign of him from their restaurants and advertisements.

Initially, Fogle faced up to 50 years for the charges he faced, but ultimately agreed to a plea bargain. He pleaded guilty to two charges, and prosecutors agreed to recommend a lower sentence.

In an Indiana federal court, prosecutors recommended 12.5 years for Fogle, but Judge Tanya Walton Pratt said she wasn't bound by the agreement and sentenced him to 15 years and 8 months.

He was also ordered to pay a combined sum of $1.4 million to his 14 victims.

"The level of perversion and lawlessness exhibited by Mr. Fogle is extreme," said Judge Pratt at the time of sentencing.

Despite the fact that he was saved from 50 years behind bars, the defendant was outraged by the sentence being longer than intended. Fogle has been trying to get his sentenced shortened. He recently filed an appeal, claiming the judge was biased against child molesters because she had two teenage daughters.

The judge has denied Fogle’s requests for a shorter sentence in the past and has called his arguments frivolous'.
