INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle was sentenced to 188 months (more than 15 years) in prison Thursday.
Fogle, who rose to national prominence as a spokesman for Subway thanks to massive weight loss while attending Indiana University, faces federal charges related to child pornography and having sex with minors. The charges followed the arrest of the former director of his Jared Foundation, Russell Taylor, and a July raid at Fogle’s Zionsville home tied to the case.
In August, Fogle’s attorneys and federal prosecutors worked out a plea deal. Under the terms of the agreement, Fogle would spend between 5 and 12.5 years in federal prison and would have to register as a sex offender. Federal prosecutors asked for 12.5 years while Fogle’s attorneys requested the minimum of 5 years.
