Case Against Jared Fogle and Russell Taylor

Recently, three people were sentenced to long prison terms for producing, possessing, and distributing child pornography. These people are Jared Fogle, the spokesperson for Subway, and Russell Taylor, an associate of Fogle’s. Fogle and Taylor both pleaded guilty to multiple federal charges of production, possession, and distribution of child p*rnography.

ID (Investigative Discovery) will produce a documentary series about the case against Taylor, who was the executive director of the Jared Foundation, and Fogle. The series will air on March 6, 2023.

This show will tell the story of how different people became involved in a child exploitation investigation, and how their names became tarnished as the scandal unfolded.

Other key facts to know about the case against Jared Fogle and Russell Taylor

1) A local Flordia radio host acted as an FBI informant for years to bring down Jared Fogle

Rochelle Herman met Jared Fogle on a radio show in 2006. She didn’t like how he acted, especially his flirtatious behavior and comments about middle school girls.

Herman became concerned about Fogle’s behavior and decided to talk to him more. She was able to track their phone calls and shared this information with the FBI.

The FBI says that Jared Fogle told a woman that he found minors attractive because they have “nice, pure bodies.” But the recordings were ruled inadmissible because they were allegedly made without the woman’s consent.

The FBI made an effort to get Fogle to travel to Sarasota, Florida, for a fake birthday party in order to show that he was ready to have s*x with a minor.

But the sting operation didn’t work out because Fogle changed his plans last minute, and he wasn’t able to go to the party.

2) Investigation into Russell Taylor started out as a bestiality report

Captain Cohen received a tip that Russell Taylor, the executive director of Fogle’s non-profit organization, The Jared Foundation, had sent pictures of himself engaging in bestiality, so Indiana State Police conducted a search of Taylor’s house.

In April 2015, law enforcement officers searched the home of Taylor and found that he had installed hidden cameras in the bedrooms of his stepdaughters as well as around the house.

The girls and their friends were photographed in compromising situations, including times when they were undressed. They also found around 500 explicit images.

Taylor was investigated for sending a n*de picture of a minor to Jared Fogle. Fogle replied asking when he could have s*x with the child. This led to a larger investigation during which authorities found that Taylor had also given Fogle a thumb drive and a laptop with child p*rnography on it.

3) The raid and arrest was followed by Subway’s termination of relationship with Jared Fogle in 2015

Investigators from the FBI and Indiana State Police searched Jared Fogle’s home in Zionsville, Indiana, on July 7, 2015. They arrested him on charges of distribution and receipt of child p*rnography.

Fogle’s computers and other electronic devices were also seized from his home. After his arrest, Subway severed all ties with him and removed all references to him.

4) Jared Fogle pleaded guilty and was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison

On November 19, 2015, Jared Fogle entered a guilty plea to charges of distributing and receiving child p*rnography and traveling to engage in illicit s*xual conduct with a minor.

The person received a prison sentence of 15 years and 8 months, so he will only be eligible for time off for good behavior after serving 13 years. He will remain under supervision for the rest of his life even after serving his sentence.

5) Russell Taylor was sentenced twice in connection to the child p*rnography case

Taylor, a former executive director of the Jared Foundation, plead guilty to 12 counts of sexual exploitation and another count of receipt and distribution of child p*rnography on December 10, 2015.

The man’s conviction was later overturned after it was found that he had received ineffective legal representation back then.

In November 2021, he pleaded guilty to 30 federal charges. In May 2022, he was sentenced to 27 years in prison.
