Never before heard audio recordings of former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle allegedly confessing to participating in sex acts with minors have been released.
“It just felt so good. I mean, it felt–it felt so good,” Fogle allegedly says on the tapes provided by former Florida journalist Rochelle Herman-Walrond to the “Dr. Phil” show.
“What turns you on the most, the young girls or the young boys?” Herman-Walrond asks Fogle in one recorded conversation. “Both of them do. Both of them,” he allegedly responds.
The conversations also touched on traveling to other countries to meet children.
“I would fly us clear across the world if we need to. To Thailand or wherever we want to go. If we’re gonna try to get some young kids with us it would be a lot easier,” Fogle allegedly said.
Herman-Walrond first met Fogle at an event she was covering and became alarmed when he told her he thought middle school girls were “so hot.”
She said that the topic would become a
“He talked about sex with underage children,” she previously said in an interview with Anderson Cooper. “It was just something that he really, really enjoyed.”
“I had two young children at the time, and he talked to me about installing hidden cameras in their rooms,” she continued.
She would eventually turn the recordings over to the FBI as they built a case against the former sandwich pitchman.
Fogle pleaded guilty in August to receiving and distributing child pornography, as well as engaging in unlawful sex act with a minor.
As a condition of the plea deal, Fogle agreed to a sentence of no less than five years in prison, and the government will not seek a sentence longer than 12 and a half years. However, a judge could give him a longer sentence. He will also undergo treatment for sexual disorders upon his release and will register as a sex offender.
Fogle has paid out $1 million in restitution to his victims so far, in the form of $100,000 checks to 10 of his victims over the past several weeks, the Associated Press reports. He still has to pay out a total of $400,000 to his remaining four victims.
Fogle will be sentenced on Nov. 19 by U.S. District Court judge Tanya Walton Pratt.
The two-part “Dr. Phil” interview will air on Thursday and Friday.
