INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Prosecutors have replied to former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle’s appeal of his more than 15-year sentence with a court filing that includes text messages illustrating his efforts to find teenagers for sex.
Monday’s filing with a federal appeals court includes one text in which Fogle asks an adult escort, “Did you find me some young girls or boys?”
The texts were part of Fogle’s November’s sentencing hearing. He pleaded guilty to distributing and receiving child pornography and traveling out of state to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.
Fogle’s attorneys argued in February’s appeal of his sentence that a federal judge abused her authority by giving him a sentence three years longer than the maximum prosecutors had sought.
The prosecutors’ filing calls the judge’s sentencing decision “procedurally proper.”
