Jared Fogle got off easy after a judge sentenced him to just over 15 years for trading in child pornography and having sex with underage children!
U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt seems to have been won over by the 38-year-old Fogle’s defense—which The ENQUIRER revealed had a psychiatrist insisting that Fogle’s perverted fantasies of sex with children only amounted to “mild pedophilia!”
Fogle had been found in possession of child pornography, and he also pleaded guilty to paying for sex with girls as young as 16. Authorities also discovered—as reported by The ENQUIRER—that Fogle had used his “child obesity” charity to employ Russell Taylor, who supplied the sick weight-loss icon with even more images of kiddie porn!
Some of Taylor’s victims were children that Fogle even knew! Fogle’s plea deal had terms that said his lawyers agreed not to seek a sentence of less than five years in prison, while prosecutors agreed to recommend a sentence of no more than 12½ years behind bars.
Judge Pratt said: “Federal judges do not sentence based on emotion or public sentiment.”
Meanwhile, the written statements that three of Fogle’s victims made to the judge remain under seal.
