If you watch the news on television, follow the news online or on social media, or generally don’t live under a rock, chances are you are familiar with the case of Jared Fogle, the disgraced former face of Subway restaurants. Recently Jared Fogle became the focus of a federal child pornography investigation. During the course of the investigation it was determined that not only did Jared Fogle possess and distribute child pornography, but that he had actually molested at least 14 children. Per the Associated Press:

A prosecutor says the $1.4 million in restitution that former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle will pay as part of his plea deal is “groundbreaking” because it will help each of his victims.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven DeBrota told reporters after Fogle appeared in court on child sex and child porn charges Wednesday that each of the 14 victims will receive $100,000. He says among them are four who are “now adults in desperate straits.”

DeBrota says the money will help victims recover from what they have been through by paying for medical treatment, counseling and education.

Fogle is expected to plead guilty on a later date to charges of having had sex with minors and having traded in child porn. He was jeered as he left court.

The article went on to say that the plea bargain would involve prosecutors calling for a prison sentence of between 5-12.5 years. That’s right, this disgusting chimo could be out on the streets again as quickly as five years. I’m glad that he is going to prison, and hopefully he never gets out if prison justice does what the criminal justice system couldn’t/wouldn’t do. I’m all for second chances for most people in society, but someone who molests 14 innocent children shouldn’t get a second chance as far as I’m concerned.

As I read reports about the proposed sentence for Jared Fogle, I couldn’t help but think about how there are people currently sitting in prison serving life sentences for marijuana, yet this child predator could be free in just half a decade. Jeff Mizanskey has served over two decades in state prison in Missouri for marijuana-only offenses. Robert Platshorn served almost three decades in federal prison for marijuana. How is it that someone who molests 14 children and deals in child pornography can be potentially freed in five years, but someone who commits non-violent marijuana-only offenses can get a life sentence? Two of my business partners for this blog were busted for marijuana and both of them were looking at more prison time than Jared Fogle. What the hell is wrong with America!?

    Money is all it’s about. When jaw flapping doobieists figure it out…….

    Some forum dude mentioned two of his buddies being imprisoned for blah blah, way longer terms than Fogel. It’s about money. Even his celebrity isn’t worth more than two minutes of air time, because it doesn’t generate money. Popping dumbfuqs that are trying to skirt income taxes with some 2-bit weed distribution gig….now that’s profitable. Again, the point must be transparent when viewing from dialated/glazed eyes.

    Join a lobbying group & pay some sorry people to act like they care about your cause (while the entire medical/pharma industry is lobbying against your broke-ass group). There are way bigger matters to address….and they all pay those who address them way more than weed legalization. Propose a ricockulous tax system they can swim in and you’ll get it passed. Until then, you’ll just be arguing in little threads & crying when you get fined for doing stuff you know is against the law. Show them massive revenue with a simple plan to institute and your weed will be legal, so you can move on to some other way to tease the bull.

    Good luck with it, though.

    Have a problem with it? Move to Colorado or a legal state like the rest of us.

    If you pay close attention to the girls/young women he had sex with, they were all age 16 or older. In most states, as it is in Michigan, the age of consent is 16. Therefore, Jared really didn’t molest anyone, all of the women probably had sex willingly with him for money. As for the child pornography, now that is another issue. The court system refers to anyone under the age of 18 a child and that can be misleading. There are plenty of men that have to register as sex offenders because they had sex with a 16 year old and many times these same girls./women, willingly had sex with these men. The details are cloudy and we only get to hear what the media wants us to hear. I am sure there is more to this story than we have been told through the media. I am sure i will get a lot of backlash about my comments, but if you have ever served on a jury, you would understand, we as media listeners, only get a small fraction of the facts, just like juries do in the court room.
