Jared Fogle hates his life in prison.

Fogle appeared in advertisements for Subway. He was able to start his career when he became a household figure.

He was found guilty of one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography as well as one count of traveling to engage in unlawful sexual activity with a minor. Fogle was sentenced to 15 years and eight months for his crimes.




In 2007, Fogle told a reporter that he was attracted to middle school girls. 400 child-porn movies were found after investigations.

In August 2015, Fogle pled guilty to child pornography and paying for sex with a minor. Fourteen of his victims were granted more than one million dollars.

Since he was sentenced to more than a decade and a half in prison, Fogle’s ideas have not come to fruition. He says that he hates his life behind bars.

While in prison, Fogle wrote a letter in which he expressed his displeasure with the way in which he was treated by both prison staff and other inmates.

“We don’t have a lot of control over our daily lives in prison, but working out is one of the things I can control.”

It states that being locked up in a cell has been difficult for him. He says that his life in prison is very difficult because he is in better health now than he was before.

Fogle and the other inmates would watch football. He uses his free time to keep his health and body in shape through physical activities such as sports and exercise.

“I feel really good physically and mentally.”

Lawyers for Fogle sent a letter to the court. Fogle asked for forgiveness. He says sorry in the letter, even though he doesn’t seem to be able to fully take responsibility for his actions.

He wrote:

“I realize I royally screwed up to wind up where I am. I was selfish and entitled. I think about all the people I’ve let down every single day, especially my family. All I can do is learn from my stupid mistakes to be a better man when I get released in a few years.”

There are things outside the prison that he misses. He said, “Prison takes away so much, but I really miss the small things like walking barefoot on the carpet, sleeping on a nice comfy mattress, eating with real silverware, and having access to a microwave.”

Fogle will be eligible for parole for the first time in 2029 when he will have served 85% of his sentence. It’s not clear if the court will want Fogle to serve more time behind bars than the law allows.
What do you think about the case against Fogle? Is it a good idea to give him more time behind bars?
