If someone tells you to lose weight by eating sandwiches, he’s probably a Jew.
If this sandwich peddler is a Jew, he is probably also a kiddie-fiddler.
Simple. Common. Sense.
Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is expected to plead guilty to one count of child pornography and one of traveling to engage in illicit sexual contact with minors, according to court documents filed Wednesday morning.
Under the terms of the expected plea agreement, prosecutors will ask federal magistrate judge Mark Dinsmore for a prison sentence of no more than 151 months, rather than the 50 years the two charges would normally carry if Fogle was to be convicted by a jury. His lawyers will ask the judge for a five year sentence.
On top of the prison sentence, Fogle will pay a total of $1.4 million to the 14 victims, register as a sex offender and seek treatment for a sexual disorder, the plea agreement documents said.
State and federal investigators raided Fogle’s Zionsville, Indiana home in early July in connection with a child pornography investigation into Russell Taylor, the former director of the Jared Foundation, a nonprofit organization that Fogle founded in 2004, focused on raising awareness about childhood obesity.
Taylor was arrested on April 29 and charged with three counts each of child exploitation, possession of child pornography and voyeurism. Investigators said they uncovered hidden cameras and 400 videos of child pornography on computers in his Indianapolis home after executing a search warrant there. He unsuccessfully tried to kill himself in May while imprisoned, WXIN reported.
Please, if you are surprised, raise your hand.
