Jared Fogle Would Like Less Jail Time, Please And Thank You
Former Subway spokesperson and convicted child sex enthusiast Jared Fogle was sentenced to 15 1/2 years in prison this November after pleading guilty to several child pornography and sex charges.
While prosecutors in the case had only asked for 12 1/2 years, and Fogle’s attorney’s were asking for five, U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt imposed the higher sentence herself. And really–who the hell can blame her? This is a guy who literally bragged about raping children like that was a normal thing to do.
According to court documents, Fogle filed an appeal requesting less prison time with the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday.
Fogle’s attorney’s claimed during the hearing that he had replaced his food addiction issues with an addiction to sex. If this is true–and I do not think it is, because you don’t just magically wake up and decide to be a pedophile one day because you can’t eat Cheez Doodles anymore–then his “addiction” makes him a danger to society. To boot, this is a person who claims that when faced with a choice between overeating and not trying to have sex with children, he chose the latter. That would be like me giving up smoking and replacing that with cannibalism and asking a judge to understand.
If you ask me–Fogle is a danger to society, and should at least have the decency to stay the hell away from it for a good long while.
