Former Subway Guy Jared Fogle Pays $1 Million in Restitution to His Victims

Disgraced former pitchman will be sentenced for sex crimes and child pornography charges in November

Jared Fogle, the disgraced former Subway spokesman who agreed to plead guilty to child pornography and sex-crime charges in August, isn’t scheduled to be sentenced until Nov. 19, but he’s already paying for his crimes financially.

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.

In exchange for the checks, the victims signed a form stating that they had received the payments, and that the money is intended to benefit each particular victim. The restitution is earmarked for counseling, medical care and other needs of the victims.

Fogle, who became a pitchman for the sandwich chain after losing more than 200 pounds partly by consuming Subway fare, was charged with having sex with two minor girls, as well as failing to tell authorities that Russell Taylor, the former executive director of the Jared Foundation, had allegedly secretly filmed 12 other minors.

While Fogle’s sentence remains to be seen, Fogle has agreed to a sentence of no less than five years in prison, while the government will not seek a sentence longer than 12 and a half years.
