Jared Fogle Pleads Guilty To Possession Of Child Porn And Sex Crimes

UPDATE: According to local affiliate Fox59 News, Jared Fogle has been sentenced to 15.6 years in prison for “conspiracy to receive child pornography and traveling to have sex with a minor.

Fox59 has a live blog of the sentencing, which you can follow here.

Disgraced sandwich enthusiast Jared Fogle has plead guilty to child pornography and sex crime charges. When asked by U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt if the charges against him — including sex with two underage prostitutes and amassing a comprehensive collection of child porn — were true, he replied, “Yes, it is the truth, Your Honor.”

The prosecutors in the case are seeking a 12-and-a-half year sentence, but Fogle’s defense wants him to serve just five years, which seems insufficient for an adult man who knowingly had sex with teen prostitutes, but hey, what do I know.

If 12.5 years doesn’t seem like enough, the judge could go beyond the prosecution’s recommendation and sentence him to up to 50 years, which frankly seems fine by me.

Fogle’s attorneys claim that he suffers from “hypersexuality and alcohol defense/dependence” and he’s seeking treatment for both. Fogle also paid out $1.4 million to his victims over the summer. [NY Daily News]
