Jared Fogle, the longtime Subway spokesperson turned convicted pedophile, is having a rough go of it in prison as it was expected he would.
Aside from gaining back slews of weight, his presence in the prison has not been welcomed among the inmates who do not take kindly to child predators. One of these inmates is 60 year old Steven Nigg who is reported to have a “serious issue” with men like Fogle.
According to a report from TMZ, Nigg ran into Fogle in the rec yard of the Englewood prison in Colorado back in late January when he unleashed a barrage of attacks on Fogle, leaving him with a bloody nose, swollen face and scratches on his neck.
Despite his age “disadvantage” over the 38 year old Fogle, Nigg was getting fed up with the amount of pedophiles in the low-security prison. Nigg had only a small cut on his hand after the altercation.
Here is a picture of Nigg that may give insight into why he hates pedophiles:
Make no mistake, these mistakes will not stop against Fogle if the experiences of past child predators are any indicator.
Here is some background on the case according to the Washington Post:
Jared Fogle, who for years served as the spokesman for the sandwich chain Subway, is facing federal charges that he repeatedly paid to engage in sexually explicit acts with children and that he received and distributed child pornography, according to court documents.
Fogle, 37, will plead guilty to the charges, his attorney said Wednesday. He will also pay $1.4 million to 14 victims in restitution for counseling, support, treatment, or other assistance related to their victimization.
According to court documents released Wednesday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Indianapolis, Fogle used Web sites to solicit commercial sex and traveled to engage in sexual acts with minors from 2007 until June 2015.
The documents also allege that Fogle received images and videos of nude children from Russell Taylor, who served as executive director of Fogle’s childhood obesity charity. Taylor also distributed pornographic images of children who were as young as six to Fogle, the documents allege.
“Today, Jared Fogle has been charged and has admitted to participating in a five-year criminal scheme to exploit children,” U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler said at a news conference. “This is about using wealth, status, and secrecy to illegally exploit children.”
But following a July raid at Fogle’s Indiana home, Subway announced that it had “mutually agreed” to suspend its relationship with him. Tuesday, as Indianapolis TV stations began to report that Fogle would face federal charges, Subway said in a statement that it already ended its relationship with Fogle and had “no further comment.”
