Jared Fogle, former spokesman for Subway, was sentenced to 188 months, more than 15 years, in federal prison on charges of distribution and receipt of child pornography and two counts of having sex with a minor. Fogle must also pay a $175,000 fine.
A doctor who examined Fogle before his plea arrangement determined he was experiencing hyper sexuality, mild pedophilia, alcohol abuse and dependency.
“I so regret that I let so many of you down,” Fogle said after his sentencing. “I want to redeem my life. I want to become a good, decent person. I want to rebuild my life.”
Social media responses included disgust toward Fogle’s actions and sandwich-themed puns.
I'ma take a shot in the dark & guess #JaredFogle won't be enjoying his nightly foot-long in prison as he once did. https://t.co/tVDuVY4DBF

Jared Fogle blaming Subway weight loss as reason he raped kids is the most modern American thing ever.
