Jared Fogle Sentenced To Over 15 Years In Jail For Child Porn Scandal
It might be hard for Jared Fogle to keep his dad bod looking sharp in prison.
Fogle was sentenced to 15.6 years in prison after his lawyers attempted to use his extreme weight loss to explain his “mild pedophilia,” TMZ reports.
The former Subway spokesman's attorney called upon expert testimony to prove Fogle was a compulsive overeater, and argued once he was finally able to get his weight down, the compulsion driving his voracious eating shifted focus to hypersexuality.
Unless Fogle's original addiction to overeating led him to devour human minors, the defense's theory was far from airtight, but the legal team forged ahead and presented a plea deal.
Fogle's team requested five to 12.5 years, and Fogle pleaded guilty in court this morning.
Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, not obligated to stand by the proposed plea, held Fogle accountable for the 12 victims of child pornography and two victims of child prostitution whose lives he damaged, and she sentenced the 38-year-old father to 15.6 years in prison.
