Ex Subway pitchman’s request to be released early denied

Jared Fogle’s request for an early release from prison was denied by an Indiana federal judge on Friday

Jared Fogle’s request for an early release from prison was denied by an Indiana federal judge on Friday.

The disgraced ex-Subway pitchman, 40, filed the motion for his early release in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis on January 11.

Federal Judge Tanya Walton Pratt denied Fogle’s, who is serving more than 15 years in prison for conspiring to receive child pornography, motion days later.

She said ‘Fogle again challenges the Court’s subject matter jurisdiction over him and requests immediate release from detention. The Motion, Notices and Objection are all DENIED.’

Court documents stated that the ‘7th Circuit Court, failed Fogle in protecting his rights to being illegally charged with “conspiracy” to receive and distribute child pornography.’

In February 2016 he asked Pratt for a shorter prison stay.

The investigation against Fogle began in July 2015 after federal law enforcement officials raided his Indianapolis home and confiscated several computers and DVDs.

In September of last year the convicted child molester was ordered to pay a $50,000 penalty as part of his high-profile case.   

He pleaded guilty to trading in child pornography and paying for sex with underage girls and was sentenced in November 2015 to 15 years in a federal prison. 

As part of the plea deal, Fogle agreed to pay 14 of his victims $100,000 each, for a total of $1.4million.

Fogle also pledged to hand over another $50,000 to federal authorities so they would not seize vehicles in which he traveled to meet his underage victims. 

In a lawsuit filed by his ex-wife Kathleen McLaughlin she alleged that Subway knew of the former pitchman’s sexual interest in children but continued promoting him as its representative regardless. 

McLaughlin filed for divorce from Fogle immediately after his arrest. The divorce was finalized just days before his sentencing, ending a six-year marriage where they shared two children. 

The ex-wife received a $7million settlement package and won sole custody of their two children in the agreement. 

Fogle became the company’s spokesman in 2000 after losing 200lbs, down from a whopping 425lbs which he weighed in college, partly by eating Subway sandwiches

In 2015, the married-father-of two admitted that he paid for sex at New York City hotels with girls who were 16 or 17 years old and that he had received some child pornography produced by Russell Taylor, the former director of the foundation Fogle started to fight childhood obesity, The Indianapolis Star reported last year.

Fogle was hospitalized earlier this year after a prison yard attack.
