Despite his 16-year prison sentence, former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle is trying to downplay the severity of his sex crimes against children.
In a letter obtained by In Touch, Fogle wrote to a woman, he knew years ago, “It has been a very hard nine months for me. I made a couple of mistakes but nothing like the media reports have said. They are making me into some sort of monster which is absolutely not true.”
Fogle also placed the blame on Russell Taylor, saying, “I’m currently appealing my prison sentence and am hoping for the best with it. Bottom line, my director of my foundation and friend did some bad stuff and tried to throw me under the bus with him.”
In the letter, Fogle also flirted with the woman and told her she looked "so hot!! (Just like I remember).” He begged, “Your two pictures you sent me have just made me smile so, so, much!! Can you send me some more good ones? I need you in my life big time.”
Fogle closed the letter by asking the woman for her email address so they could continue corresponding that way. “I’ve thought about you over the years but had no way of contacting you. What is your email address? I have email access from here but I have to plug your email and phone number into the computer and then you accept it and we are good from there. [The email] is monitored, but who cares? LOL.”
The 38-year-old plead guilty to child exploitation and child porn charges in August.
