16-Year-Old Victim Of Jared Fogle Explains How She Was Sexually Abused
A teenager involved in the sex crimes of Jared Fogle spoke out about her abuse by the former Subway spokesman and his associate.
According to Daily Mail, the 16-year-old known only as Analissa revealed to Dr. Phil she, then age 14, was filmed by Russell Taylor, who ran Fogle's childhood obesity charity before being arrested and jailed on child pornography charges.
Taylor groomed her to have sex with him in the years to come.
Of Taylor, Analissa told Dr. Phil,
[He] had me convinced that when I turned 16 I was going to have sex with him.
The full interview with Analissa, who said she felt "brainwashed and manipulated" by Taylor, will air Thursday.
Analissa reportedly decided to come forward on behalf of Fogle's victims after watching Dr. Phil's interview with Rochelle Herman-Walrond last week.
Herman-Walrond met Fogle, 38, when he was a guest on her radio show in 2006.
She initiated a false friendship with the father of two after hearing him casually reveal he was attracted to middle school-aged girls, according to New York Daily News.
She spent the next several years secretly recording telephone conversations between her and Fogle, who spoke of sexual encounters with young girls and boys.
Fogle pleaded guilty in August to having sex with minors and distributing and receiving child pornography.
He will go to jail for between five and 12 years when he is sentenced November 19.
