“A female judge sentenced former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle to more than 15 years in prison on Thursday for trading in child pornography and having sex with underage prostitutes.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt disregarded prosecutors’ recommendation that Fogle get 12 1/2 years behind bars, opting for a stiffer sentence of 15 years and eight months and ordering him to pay a $175,000 fine. She could have sentenced him to up to 50 years in prison.
In explaining her sentence, Pratt noted how fortunate Fogle was to land his lucrative deal to be Subway’s spokesman after losing a lot of weight in college.”
I would not describe the predispositions of Jared Fogle as “mild pedophilia” based upon the investigation of Florida TV reporter Rochelle Herman-Walrond, who secretly recorded her conversations with Jared Fogle for the FBI over nearly a decade. She went to the FBI in 2007 after Fogle made an offhand comment to her in 2007while her cameraman was present, stating that he thought middle school girls ‘were hot.’
The details of her investigation into the magnitude of Jared Fogle’s monstrosity can be read here. WARNING: the content is disturbing and rather explicit.
