Jared Fogle Will Serve Less Time In Prison For Molesting Children Than Some Do For Marijuana

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!?

    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.

  2. Gabriel DiFelice on

    Because drug dealers get their possessions through drug dealing and his pay is legit. So your comment makes no sense. Not to mention he has a family n wife who is therefore entitled to at least half of his possessions.

  3. 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.

    >>>>Everybody else who makes bad decisions gets the horns.<<<<
    Is this your personal philosophy? Isn't it rather depressing?

  5. If you truly believe that you have to look at Michael Vick and scratch your head or maybe wink your eye….#just curious

  6. All societies abide by laws that maintain their governance. That is by taxation. Killing jews & keeping blacks from white water fountains has nothing to do with avoiding taxes. Since drawing legitimate parallels isn’t your strength, let’s go with the obvious. Laws are written by those we vote in. If you think taking the front seat in a bus when the rule is “sit in the back” is the same as distributing large quantities of a banned substance to get to the goal of societal/law change, have at it. Why is it that 90something% of potheads can’t figure out how simple it is to make laws change. They make shitty arguments & excuses for the blatantly retarded actions of other idealogues. Organize, execute, legalize & be happy. Otherwise keep breaking the law to push an agenda, see how that pans out.

  7. So by your logic, when segregation was legal and a black man drank from a whites only fountain he deserves the full weight of the law?
    Or in Germany when being a Jewish person was illegal they had to deserve the holocaust because they broke the law?
    If you use the government and the laws created by scumbag politicians as your moral compass you will be lost.
    Not to mention that if no one ever challenged unjust laws things would never change.

  8. No it’s about civil forfeiture.
    Jared was fined but none of his possessions were seized by the state. Besides computers.
    But when someone is busted with an amount of marijuana the first thing they do is seize the house, car, bank accounts etc.

  9. Probably because he knows other elite peds he could out. Jerry Sandusky was part of a ring. Jared probably hobknobbed with some high ranking republicans and has a few secrets. I think the other explanation they gave was that his victims were 17 year old prostitutes. People need to read The Franklin Cover-Up by Sen John DeCamp with forward by exCIA Director William Colby written in 1995. Colby, an ex Olympic swimmer, was found drowned months later. It basically implicated Cheney and Bush Sr in a political blackmail pedophile ring in which they too were willing participants. It was ritualistic and occult driven according to Colby and run like a club as an initiation to keep everyone quiet with dirt on them all…even the top leaders. Child advocate, Nick Bryant, wrote a follow up a few years ago called The Franklin Scandal.

  10. Nobody in this discussion said that someone who breaks the law should get a pass. The whole discussion relates to the relative severity of sentencing for minor drug offenses vs. violent or sexual offenses. The only one pulling anything out of their ass here is you. Actually, a lot of your problem seems to lie with comprehension. Has that always been a problem for you?

    I like how you reference maturity while you call someone a nutsack. That’s really adult. ROTFLMAOAY (rolling on the floor laughing my ass off at YOU).

    Why are you reading a weed related blog if you haven’t ever smoked weed and think that those who do belong in jail? You should exercise some of that maturity and use a little self control. Oh, that’s right, you only talk about it, you really don’t have any maturity.

  11. Stealing a candy bar is illegal. Should it have a greater penalty than molesting children?

    You are arguing some point in your head, apparently mostly because it gives you the opportunity to use all your clever insults that you appear to have picked up from time spent trolling either online forums or usenet, but your point has nothing to do with what anyone here has said or expressed. Try reading the original post slowly and out loud and you may get the gist which is simple:
    *People are in jail for life for possession of pot.
    *People (like Jared in this instance) will walk with relatively short sentences for destroying children’s lives.
    *This is not justice.
    Your attempts to distract from that point and reduce this discussion to your insults only makes your true motivation more than a little suspect, it doesn’t add anything to and certainly won’t change anyone’s way of thinking, nor will it change the way anyone is acting.

  12. Noneya Biznass on

    What I see is an issue with education! I love how you proudly typed “Looser,” and used a mark of exclamation and shit, too! Lol. Dumb ass…

  13. Edmond Poirier on

    Buying out his victims. …….. it was a regular joe blow he would have the book thrown at him…… but since he is a celebrity he can get off on next to nothing……. i hope he gets what he deserves when he gets inside….just sayen……. just because you have money….. you disgust me……..

  14. Keep smoking pot. They really could give a shit less if you consume it. But, be the one investing in the infrastructure or distribution and you are doing just that, messing with the bull. The same bull you just looked at and taunted with the joint in your face a second ago. When it horns the shit out of you, I laugh. It’s like watching the running of the bulls. It’s not the legalization that investors are really seeking. It’s the “pioneer” status. Being a pioneer in any other field has its dangers, most unknown to the participants. But investing in weed-based business at this point takes a special kind of retard. It is based in the mindset of the need for bucking a system. Everybody else who makes bad decisions gets the horns.

  15. you are just plain ignorant if you believe non-violent marijuana offenses deserve the amount of time they get sometimes, and you are just a plain dick if you believe this man deserves that little bit of time compared to a marijuana smokers time in jail. How can you deny hundreds of studies on marijuana’s positive health benefits, and then call somebody a loser for smoking marijuana. you are pathetic.

  16. Pot heads dont have any money to pay for good legal representation..

    And you cant see a problem with pot??
    Smoke it up and sit in jail! Looser!

  17. Joey Tribbiani on

    He probably got access to them through “The Jared Foundation”, which i’m quite positive is just a metaphor/nickname for his unit.
    and how much more inappropriate is the “Jared’s pants dance game” now that we know he is in fact a ‘Kiddy-diddler’ ?

  18. A very important question….
    They love to respond with, “weed sellers destroy lives, thats why they get a more harsh punishment than pedophiles, rapers, etc….”
    So back to that important question, How come LEGAL weed doesn’t destroy lives, but ILLEGAL weed does??

  19. You do realize they put child sex offenders in PC/Ad-Seg, right? He won’t be put in Gen Pop.

  20. I say they take every f****** dollar he has and then lock him in a room where every father of every child he’s touched gets 1 hour to do whatever they please with him as long as they keep him alive. Then keep him alive in a prison in some thirdworld country

  21. The reason why is so simple to figure out.. MONEY.. Those with money don’t do the time for the crime..Somebody in jail for pot offenses didnt have the money to PAY an expensive lawyer.. Time and time and more time for peoples liight bulb to turn on and go I just figured it out.. Its about money.. Everything in society is about MONEY. Time and time again.. The state that jared lived in didnt go after him for his crimes.. He paid to much money to rhe State in taxes for the state government to look into his crimes.. TOTALLY ignored by the police state prosecuters social services.. HELLO people please figure this out once and for all. The FBI . Federal govrrnment stepped in to bust him because they dont get federal funds off his income like his STATE does.. Read the news to figure this out.. The state doesnt care about peophiles.. The make money off employed pedophiles.. Pedophiles that have jobs and pay the state their taxes are EXEMPT from the state wanting to investigate whether they molest children when the come home from work in their private lives.. This is the HONEST GODS truth.. Start electing officals in your State government who PROSECUTE PEDOPHILES instead of low income pot dealers…

  22. Because most Americans are pussies and have NO backbone. Get off the FN keyboards, and active in the streets. Then you WILL have positive results.

  23. Jamal Matteson on

    I don’t smoke weed. Never have, so no, I’ve never bought weed.

    And I never said I’ve never broken a law either. What a shock you’re pulling more presumptuous shit out of your ass.

    I said that when someone breaks a law and acts like they should get a pass because of subjective reasoning it’s bullshit and an attempt to dodge responsibility.

    I take responsibility for mistakes, especially when I do something I know is wrong.

    It’s called being an adult. Try it sometime, nutsack.

  24. So you are telling me, you have never ever bought weed?? Or done ANYTHING ilegal in your whole life?? You are a hipocrite

  25. Think about this for a moment. You’re commenting on an article about a child molester who destroyed over a dozen innocent lives…and you’re choosing to turn this into a petty weed debate-turned dick measuring contest? What’s the matter with you?

  27. Thanks for all that great input. Fortunately, I live in a state that allows me to drive a few minutes, go into a clean, well-lit store that is clearly open to the public, give them money and take away some delicious weed. I am not even slightly worried about any legal authorities, local, state or federal disturbing my little errand, in spite of the fact that I spent time in prison, decades ago, for simple possession of a few grams. Don’t lecture me, you bored and boring fool.

  28. Jamal Matteson on

    Illegal is illegal. Even if you disapprove of that.

    If you do something illegal and get busted, it’s your own fault. That’s common sense. Acting like you or someone else should get a pass because the crime was “less” of a crime shows an aversion (just for you, toots) to responsibility. What Steve pointed out was actually very logical. Simply put: no pity kiddo. You mess with the bull you get the horns.

    Acting like a presumptuous, condescending prick isn’t helping your case at all here…

  29. Jamal Matteson on

    In the meantime it’s still illegal. Wether you and I approve of it or not. Doing something that you know is illegal will get you in a bind when you get caught, so you can’t really play the victim card or “grey area” game with it. Illegal is illegal. Which is what Steve was pointing out…and that point is logical. It’s also common sense that knowingly breaking a law doesn’t reduce illegality. And acting like it should because it’s “less” of a crime shows you are trying to avoid responsibility.

    Sorry if that’s confusing, kiddo. Maybe try looking the words up for further info?

    Like I said, I think it should be legal. But being a cunt about it in the meantime isn’t going to help the cause.

  30. So, you must be here to educate us blowhard potheads about the extreme illegality of cannabis, which you actually like and want to see legalized, but in the meantime, anyone who uses it has no common sense, logic or responsibility. Have I got that right?

  31. Jamal Matteson on

    FWIW, I’m all about week being nationally legalized. Doesn’t mean blowhard potheads who rely on info they pull from their asses to make a point aren’t hilarious to me. You’re a joke, chooch.

  32. Jamal Matteson on

    When did I have an “aversion to cannibis”, you presumptuous fuck?

    And who mentioned beer?

    Do you always rely on making shit up, or do you sometimes stick to the facts?

  33. Obviously this is the WEED BLOG, not the morals police and fake indignation discussion group. If I had the same aversion to cannabis you obviously do, why would I be hanging around here? And you? Trying to convert us into law-abiding beer-swillers? Good luck with that.

  34. Jamal Matteson on

    Obviously you disapprove of common sense, logic, and responsibility. Talk about typical…

  35. Why does it matter? When something is known to be illegal and people still distribute it (I couldn’t care less what excuse they give) they deserve to be stomped on by the boot of the law….period. Not one of them didn’t know it was illegal. They all decided to play that game of roulette. No remorse for them coming from me. I think they should legalize Marijuana, but it is illegal now. Break that obvious law, suck or take dicks in prison. Pretty cut ‘n’ dry. I believe the sentence for child pornography should be steeper than anything that’s based around non-taxable income. But regardless of who/what Jared is porking, that doesn’t make your two business partners any less retarded. I’d pay for them to get out of jail if they irreversibly snip their junk, so I don’t have to pay for their dumb – ass kids later, when they repeat pop’s stupid mistakes.

  36. You are do Right the only thing that is comforting is that in prison he will get what he really deserves ..,..

  37. William R. Jones on

    Unfortunately, if he gets 5 yrs he will serve a lot less than that. Sex offenders are model prisoners and get out very early. He will be out in 18 months. :-(

    I'm beginning to *see* the same thing. The courtroom is more like a meeting to figure out how to send the most violent message to salvage Nixon's war on drugs. He also thought it was a way to shut down the Vietnam War protests.
    Yesterday, I was listening to a podcast. Must go find it….where the speaker said until 900,000 people stop getting arrested/year, its time to get vocal. It's time for me to get active. I'd want someone 'yelling' for me and for my rights if I were inside.
    Shudder* I don't look good in orange.

    if you eat subway then you obviously don’t have a jreck subs fogle or not subway blows especially their half cold breakfast foods

  40. When cannabis is outlawed, only outlaws will have cannabis.

    Face it, recreational & medical users are themselves a cash crop to the authorities. We need fundamental reform. And racism still plays a huge role in the suppression of this ancient folk remedy. Cops and robbers, “cowboys and indians”, basic war/conflict mindset. They’re seen as bodies to fill beds to keep their occupancy rates up & the money flowing from nearly bankrupt states. Vicious circle. To a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Meanwhile, the suppression also used as leverage in the patchwork medical system. Tragic, absolutely avoidable & a mark of deep, willful ignorance at this point.

    I’m sorry for Jared’s victims. Also glad for the unintended side effect of getting him out of public view & off the air waves.

  41. It’s all about the money what you get sent to prison for, not the nature of the crime. Sure a lot of people get life for murder, but many get released too. There are many who aren’t getting released, or stay a lot longer, for drugs. One of them being marijuana.

  42. Lyn Bruner- McKinney on

    Subway didn’t know. Why blame them?? I will shun the pedo but will eat my Subway sandwiches.

  43. I’ve never liked Subway sandwiches. I was almost always hungry again one half hour later. Waste of money IMO.

  44. When a law is a lie, it must be enforced with the most extreme brutality to ensure that no-one sensible is in a position to argue.
    Bullies rule.

  45. Insulting restitution, a million each would be more in line with totally freaking up somebody’s life.

  46. or s*** sandwiches. probably knuckle sandwiches a whole bunch of them… hold the mayo!

  47. Why not fence off TexAss…? Take everyone & their kids out who don’t vote Republican, offer the wives & kids of Repub & TeaParty pols 1 minute for every year they’ve been married to decide on seeking asylum in another state, then turn all those pedophiles loose after Ted Cruz & his cohorts have started building the perimeter fences (& hold them responsible for preventing escapes)…yeah, that should do

  48. Oh lose the race card. That fuck isn’t famous. He was fat and lost weight eating shitting sandwiches. The fact that he is white and male also plays no part. He will be going to prison and eat cock meat sandwiches there.

  49. I know many people that served 10 years or more for non violent weed charges. Now it’s being decriminalized and has proven medical benefits!! My opinion child predators should be castrated, and have there fingers chopped down to the first knuckle. Then gate off one state and let them live amongst themselves. Since torturing and killing them would be inhumane!!
    I did a story for school in the 8th grade on whether, child predators can be “healed”. There was a program in a California prison that claimed they were reforming pedophiles , with intensive therapy. The inmate and multiple time offender of children they interviewed, claimed he was reformed he would never touch a child again, but his mind still fantasized about very gruesome acts with little boys 6 or younger. He couldn’t wait to get out!! Reformed!!!!!? My ass!!!!!
    We need to band together and get weed federally legal!!! This is bullshit!!!!
    And idc if Subway is off I’ll I ate with him anymore or not, their spokesperson is a child predator, myself and my children will not eat at Subway!!!

  50. Pretty Dreadhead on

    He should have to serve 12.5 years for each child he molested!!! This is a screwed up world we live in when people spend life sentences over possessing a little pot while child molesters can be free to go in a couple years and most of the time go right back in for the same shit. Who knows how many he truly molested on top of the 14. He needs to be given the same fear and pain he caused those children and the end result death.

  51. Mufasas_Ghost on

    Judges can and do ignore plea deals, and in this case I would hope that Fogle will get the maximum for each and every child. He should never see the light of day.

  52. Jordan Shorette on

    the fact that the punishments for marijuana are so severe is beyond sadistic, but whats even worse is how the sentencing for rapists is so low with no attempt made at increasing, I would rather be sitting on a public bus next to a rehabilitated killer that has served their time then some child rapists that served less time then a long piss. there is at least the possibility extenuating circumstances for someone killing someone else(raped or hurt a loved one, self defense etc) but when it comes to rape let alone child rape its ALWAYS pre meditated, rapists are the only type of person in our society I actually condone locking away (serial murderers too obviously)
