Subway's Jared Fogle

The Downfall of Subway’s Jared Fogle

September 2, 2015

Many people have been shocked by the recent news that Jared Fogle, the famous Subway pitchman, has plead guilty to multiple sexual offenses involving children. The charges to which Fogle has plead guilty include distributing and receiving child pornography as well as traveling to engage in paid sex with minors. It is alleged that Fogle traded child pornography with a friend and colleague and repeatedly attempted to find minors to pay for sex. His guilty pleas will lead to prison time, fines and large financial settlements that will be paid to the victims.

Although this case took place in Indiana, Texas laws regarding sexual assault could have led to a similar outcome. All states have tough laws and harsh punishments when it comes to cases of sexual offense involving children. The case of Jared Fogle is a good example of the eventual outcomes of these kinds of cases.
