Remember the Subway guy from the early 2000s? He has been convicted of trading and possessing child pornography and paying underage girls for sex and has been sentenced to more than 15 years in prison by a court in Indianapolis.
Jared Fogle rose to fame in 1999 after he became the spokesperson for the sandwich franchise, claiming that he had lost 200 pounds while eating Subway’s healthy sandwiches.
According to his defense, the rapid weight loss resulted in a dramatic change in lifestyle. Namely, he claimed to have become “hyper sexual” and that’s why he had to turn to alcohol abuse, pornography, and prostitutes.
One of the most bizarre parts of his defense was the fact that his lawyers referred to his problem as “mild pedophilia.”
The judge in the case did not see anything mild about his actions and sentenced him to more than the 12 and a half years in prison that the prosecution was asking for.
