Former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison Thursdaymonths after the FBI raided his home as part of a child porn probe that also ensnared the director of his childrens charity.

Fogle depicted no feeling as federal Judge Tanya Walton Pratt sentenced him to 15 years and 8 months behind bars. In a deal with prosecutors, the weight-loss star pleaded guilty to possession and distribution of child pornography and traveling across state lines for commercial sexuality with a minor.

In one record, Fogle discussed how he could entice small children away from a pond party .

This defendant was obsessed with child porn, Pratt fumed during the proceedings in Indianapolis federal tribunal, adding that Fogle was living a double life, and for many of those years was living in a web of lies and depravity.

Federal magistrates do not sentence based on feeling or public sentiment. The level of perversion and lawlessness exhibited by Mr. Fogle is extreme, she added of the former spokesman, who is charged with watching homemade kiddie porn from Russell Taylor, the former head of the Jared Foundation.

The hearing recurred the shocking allegations that sealed Fogles demise: He had more than 600 images of child pornwhich included minors as young as 6; he had sexuality with 16 – and 17 -year-old girls who were victims of trafficking; and spent a minimum of $12,000 a year on prostitutes.

Fogle, 38, used his wealth to travel to New York City and pay for sexuality with the teenage daughters, whom he met at the Ritz-Carlton and Plaza hotels.

He went as far as offering an 18 -year-old Las Vegas prostitute a $400 finders fee to find an even younger victim. Did you find me some young girls or sons? he asked the woman in a text message, according to a detectives testimony.

Last month, a former Florida journalist appeared on the Dr. Phil depict to reveal secretly taped audio of Fogle discussing sexuality with children. In one record, Fogle discussed how he could lure a child away from a pond party.

The prison-bound sandwich celebrity choked up as he made his first public remarks about the instance in tribunal Thursday.

Where do I even try to begin, your honor? For the majority of members of my adult life, Ive been in the spotlight, trying to be a positive role model for others, Fogle said.

The former spokesman claimed he was raised with good values, but something changed that led to his lust for adolescents. I have become dependent on alcohol, pornography, and prostitutes, Fogle claimed.

At the time I truly did not think through what I was doing. Nor did I think about the consequences of my actions, he said.

Fogle sobbed as he told the judge, Not a day will go by when I dont think about what I did to[ the victims ], according to the Indianapolis Star .

Members of my family are also victims of my acts, he continued, adding that his wife is now a single mother. Judge Pratt interrupted, You gave your wife$ 7 million, so shell be OK.

After the four-hour proceeding, Fogle blew kiss and waved goodbyes to his family members seated in the front row. A U.S. Marshal then resulted him away in handcuffs.

The sentence surpassed the 12 years called for under prosecutors and the five years his defense team requested. Pratt said a lower sentence did not sufficiently account for the scope of the defendants criminal conduct.

Earlier in the hearing, Fogles lawyers indicated his rise to fameas an obese Indiana University student who shed 245 pounds on a diet of Subwaycontributed to his preoccupation with minors. One of his attorneys, Jeremy Margolis, said Fogle traded a horrible food addiction for a horrible sexuality addiction.

Margolis said Fogle witnessed the crashing and burning of their own lives but has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to get well, the Star reported.

When Judge Pratt snapped, Why didnt he do that years ago? the lawyer replied he didnt know, but a psychiatrist hired by Fogles legal team said if he had received help and had been put on the antidepressant Zoloft, this wouldnt have happened.

University of Ottawa forensic psychiatrist John Bradford testified in tribunal via phone that he diagnosed Fogle with mild pedophilia. He said Fogles sex drive may have been affected by his eating disorder.

Once he lost weight, it seemed as though in a short time he had hyper-sexuality, Bradford said. There are brain disorders that can be associated with sexual drive.

Bradford claimed Fogle denied ever touching infants, and said that he only had fictions about 12 – and 13 -year-olds and instead had eyes for older teens. He was mostly attracted to females who were adolescents, who were 14 to 17 years of age. His attraction was at the high objective of that scope, the psychiatrist said.

Still, Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven DeBrota pushed for a tougher sentence because Fogle enthusiastically participated in Taylors child-porn scheme and did nothing to stop it. Indeed, the sandwich shill indicated he recognized one girl in a photo by her nude torso.

Jared Fogle utterly knew these victims, DeBrota said. He knew they were going to be with Mr. Taylor. He knew what was going to happen.

DeBrota called Taylor a monster that Fogle helped cause.

He cant control his demons, DeBrota told Judge Pratt of Fogle. I hope some day he can. We merely know what he can do once hes caught.

In August, Fogle agreed to plead guilty and pay $100,000 each to 14 victimssome of whom hed met at social events in Indiana and who later depicted up in the explicit footage created by Taylor.

Taylor, who helmed the Jared Foundation from 2008 until his arrest in April 2015, is accused of placing conceal cameras around his home to secretly record minors as young as 9 years old, according to tribunal documents.

He told policemen he placed clock radios with concealed cameras in the bathroom and other rooms throughout his home. One camera was stashed in his stepdaughters room to determine if she was stealing from his wife or having sexuality with her boyfriend.

Fogles plea deal came one month after the feds descended on his suburban Indianapolis home and sparked their own nationals sight. His life and career were shattered, with the Subway chain instantly dumping him and his wife, Katie, filing for divorce.

In July, sources told The Daily Beast that Fogle and Taylor were best friend and that Fogle handpicked his buddy for the charity role. Taylor also reached a plea bargain and awaits sentencing next month.
