“I feel really good physically and mentally,” he continues, revealing that he spends time watching college and NFL football “that makes the weekends go by,” reading the New York Times daily and all. kinds of books, especially historical fiction. .
“I always like to laugh and smile,” he said, finally getting out of the subject of his weight. “I realize I made a royal mistake to end up where I am. I was selfish and I was entitled.”
“I think of all the people I have let go of every day, especially my family. All I can do is learn from my stupid mistakes to become a better man when I am released in a few years.”
“I can’t wait to start my life over and enjoy every moment with my family who have supported and supported me. I’m so lucky to have them.”

“I really don’t know what I’ll do in the future,” he recalls. “It’s kind of an open book I guess.”

As part of a plea deal, Fogle was convicted in 2015 of pleading guilty to one count of distributing and receiving child pornography, and one count of traveling for engaging in illicit sexual behavior with a minor.
Once estimated at $ 15 million through its sponsorship deal with Subway, it also had to pay $ 1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims – $ 100,000 each.
Suspicion around Fogle began in 2007, when journalist and radio host Rochelle Herman-Walrond told the FBI that Fogle revealed to her on a speaking tour that he was attracted to middle-aged girls.
Under the direction of federal investigators, Herman-Walrond said she had befriended and started recording sickening conversations about minors over the past four years. She believes the prosecution has taken so long due to the lack of substantial evidence and that Fogle was ultimately not the primary target of the investigation.
