INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (Nov. 12, 2015)--Former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle will learn his fate next week. In August, Fogle admitted to paying for sex with minors and viewing child pornography.

Court documents say Fogle flew to New York and engaged in commercial sex acts with minors on at least two occasions.

The child porn was allegedly provided by Russell Taylor, the former head of the Jared Foundation.

Fogle will be sentenced anywhere from 5-12 years, but federal prosecutors will be asking for the maximum sentence of 12.5 years.

Sex addiction experts say it will take a lifetime for Fogle to deal with his sexual disorder.

"He certainly fits the profile for someone who has sexual exploitative disorder," said Carol Juergensen Sheets.

Juergensen Sheets is a certified sex therapist and she has not treated Fogle.

"He can manage it if he does the work. This is the hardest work of any addiction there is," said Juergensen Sheets.

Documents filed Thursday say Fogle learned that Taylor was sexually attracted to children no later than 2011 and Taylor secretly filmed at least 12 minors in his house.  Court paperwork also says  the minors were provided with alcohol and drugs.
Taylor will be sentenced next month and faces a punishment of 15-35 years.

From court documents:

“Fogle decided not to report his knowledge of Taylor’s sexual exploitation of minor victim 1 to law enforcement officials, a decision giving Taylor the opportunity to sexually exploit minor victims 1 through 12 during the four years that followed."

"Jared Fogle looks like a monster and what he did was horribly wrong, but we in this field believe he has an addition, it is a disorder," said Juergensen Sheets.

In addition to prison time, Fogle is also required to be supervised for five additional years and he will have to register as a sex offender. He is already paying his victims restitution.
