Who Is Jared Fogle?

Fogle catapulted to fame after he lost 245 pounds by simply eating Subway sandwiches. He also incorporated walking into his daily routine.

"I was reborn in every sense of the word," he said in a 1999 interview with the campus newspaper at Indiana University. "Subway helped save my life and start over. I can't ever repay that."

Federal authorities raided his home and removed electronics. They also arrested Taylor. The authorities found a cache of over 400 sexually explicit photos and videos Taylor produced. Some of those videos, including commercially-made child porn, were downloaded with Fogle.

Fogle, a father of two, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to over 15 years in federal prison for possession of child pornography and travelling across state lines to have sex with a minor. Meanwhile, Taylor was sentenced to 27 years in prison on child pornography charges.

Fogle is currently serving a 15-year sentence at a prison facility in Colorado.
