On Thursday, disgraced Subway spokesman Jared Fogle finally learned his fate after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.
According to Daily Mail, a federal judge in Indianapolis sentenced Fogle to over 15 years in prison on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography as well as traveling across state lines for sex with a minor. Fogle’s attorney’s were hoping for a five year sentence, while the prosecution was fighting for 12½-years.
Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, however, chose the harsher sentence of 15 years and 8 months in prison followed by a lifetime of supervision.
Before receiving his sentenced, Fogle broke his silence about the charges for the first time about his sex crimes with minors, and he quickly started sobbing.
“Although I realize that I can never change my deplorable past choices, I so regret that I let so many of you down,” he told the court. “Not a day will go by when I don’t think about what I did to [the victims].”
Fogle claimed that he became hypersexual after his massive weight loss, which he pulled off by eating Subway every day, twice a day. Though the diet made him famous, things quickly went downhill for him.
“I became dependent on alcohol, pornography and prostitutes,” he admitted.
When he is released from prison, the father of two told the court that he hopes to help other sex offenders and inmates.
“I want to become a good, decent person,” Fogle said.
