The case against former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle just took a horrific turn. According to a new report, Jared has now been charged with soliciting up to 14 different young boys and girls for sex.
Jared Fogle, 37, is definitely not the man we thought he was as he spent years charming potential customers with his massive weight loss in Subway sandwich commercials. Just one day after the former spokesman reportedly decided to plead guilty to child pornography charges, a new report has revealed that Jared allegedly liked to travel from New York City to Indiana to solicit minors for sex. The report claims that Jared was involved with at least 14 different minors, varying between boys and girls. So sick.
The new allegations made against Jared Fogle will make you sick to your stomach, HollywoodLifers. Not only will the former Subway spokesman reportedly be pleading guilty for child pornography charges, but now a report has revealed that he may have been sexually involved with multiple minors. Disgusting.
Jared allegedly traveled back and forth from his home in NYC to Indiana over the span of three years, 2010 to 2013, reports TMZ. During those trips, Jared allegedly paid 14 different minors — both boys and girls — for sexual relations. There are also text messages allegedly between Jared and a 16-year-old victim on file, in which he reportedly told her, “the younger the girl, the better.”
This news comes less than 24 hours after it was reported that Jared would plead guilty and accept a deal in the child pornography case against him. If these new allegations are true, it makes sense that he took the plea deal — in which he will only see up to 5 years in prison — because he could have faced a far more serious sentencing.
Unfortunately, serving up to 5 years in prison and paying a $1.4 million restitution just doesn’t seem harsh enough for these despicable actions. Our thoughts are with the underage victims of Jared’s alleged sexual solicitations.
