The complaint says Fogle paid for sex.The complaint says in text messages with one of the 14 minor victims, Fogle said he would accept a 16-year-old girl while stating that “the younger the girl, the better.” The complaint says he asked some of the victims to send him pictures of themselves.

So this story had been around for a while now but I never wanted to write about it. Something about it just gave me the creeps and usually I like to use humor when writing, this is in no way shape or form anything to joke about.
The fact that this figurehead used his power, his little bit of fame to lure in young women, pay them to have sex with him is absolutely disgusting. Growing up Jared the Subway guy was everywhere on television and kids all around the country knew who he was. He used that to his advantage. He had a a foundation for children and the president of the foundation set up these kids. It is all just a disgusting story.
The fact that this man, no this monster is only going to serve possibly five years in jail isn’t long enough. It is shown that most pedophiles recommit their crime, in fact 89% of them do. We are living in a strange world where people who literally rip young children’s innocence from them get less time in prison than someone who was caught with a joint.
After this announcement went public Jared’s wife also announced that they were divorcing.
Five years for ruining the lives of multiple, innocent young children. What a world we live in.
