Jared Fogle, Ex-Subway Pitchman, Gets 15 Years in Prison for Child Porn Charges

NC_fogle121119_700x394(NBC News) Former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle was sentenced to over 15 years behind bars Thursday for child porn and sex crime charges — after tearfully telling the judge he wants to become a “good, honest person.”

“I want to redeem my life,” Fogle, his voice cracking with emotion as he wiped his eyes, told an Indianapolis courtroom during his sentencing.

Fogle was sentenced to 188 months each after pleading guilty to one count of traveling to engage in sexual conduct with a minor and one count of receiving child pornography. He will serve his time concurrently, and won’t be eligible for parole before 13 years.

His attorneys had asked for a lighter sentence of five years in prison, arguing that he’s already “lost everything” and will live with the consequences of his behavior for the rest of his life. Prosecutors sought 12-1/2 years.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt ordered Fogle into custody immediately, and recommended he go to federal prison in Colorado with a sex offender treatment program.

She told him his Subway earnings were a “gift” — but he squandered his opportunities. “The level of perversion and lawlessness exhibited by Mr. Fogle is extreme,” Pratt said.
