The depths of Subway Jared’s creepiness knows no floor.
Fogle is currently serving a 15-year prison sentence for conspiracy to receive child porn and traveling to have sex with a minor, exceeding the maximum 12 and a half years recommended in his plea deal and the 14 in sentencing guidelines. Indiana federal district judge Tanya Walton Pratt sentenced him to extra time citing the extensive lengths he went to to lure victims.
The delusional ex-sandwich spokesman has decided to appeal his sentence. Bad idea. Prosecutors just delivered a knockout punch, revealing to an Indiana court the deplorable text messages he sent while trying to lure his victims.
Prosecutors told the court on Monday,
“Fogle had a pattern: He found adult escorts through the Internet, developed relationships with them, and offered them finder’s fees to provie him with access to minors for commercial sex.”
“I’ll pay you big for a 14- or 15-year-old,” said one text to an adult escort he hired as a middle-man to deliver him young children.
According to the IndyStar, another text said, “Did you find me some young girls or boys?” Fogle wanted the child to be able to prove his or her age, adding, “If they can and you get me 16 or below, I’ll give you 400 at least.”
When asked why he craves young girls, Fogle responded vehemently, “Cause it’s what I crave! I would hook you up nicely if you did,” before offering the broker and the child both $300 if she is good looking enough.
Another text read aloud in court papers Monday: “I’m horny again. Is your Asian friend available?”
While acknowledging Fogle’s “inexcusable acts,” his defense team “Even in the (judge’s) view, Fogle will not likely reoffend after receiving treatment for 120 months. The question is then: Why sentence him to more than five years beyond that?”
Prosecutors shot back:
“Fogle went to great lengths to engage in commercial sex acts with underage minors. He bought and offered plane tickets. He reserved and paid for the hotel rooms, made arrangements for the commercial sex acts.”
I feel dirty.
