Attorneys for Ex-Subway Pitchman Jared Fogle Ask For 5-Year Prison Term

ared Fogle, the disgraced Subway spokesman, is being sentenced for possession of child pornography and sexual conduct with a minor on November 19.

Court documents show prosecutors asked the judge to sentence him to 12 and a half years in prison, and a lifetime of supervised probation.


The 38-year-old received the lion’s share of the child porn from his former foundation head Russell Taylor, who produced a few of the videos personally and acquired others from Eastern Europe, court docs stated, noting that Fogle also had sex with prostitutes on “hundreds of occasions” – including twice with underage girls. Do you think Fogle deserved a minimum term of five years?

Prosecutors and defense attorneys in Jared Fogle’s case met to submit their requests for sentencing on Thursday, November 13th, 2015. Fogle could have stopped Taylor from victimizing a few of minors, prosecutors have said, but they say he instead encouraged Taylor to produce additional child pornography.

However, federal judges have wide discretion, and Judge Tanya Walton Pratt could go beyond the prosecution’s recommendation at the November 19 sentencing.

Taylor has separately agreed to plead guilty to child exploitation and child pornography charges.
