Fogle associate gets 27 years in child porn case.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The latest in the child pornography case against the former director of a foundation started by former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle (all times local).Russell Taylor pleaded guilty to 13 federal crimes during his sentencing hearing — 12 counts of child exploitation and one count of distributing child pornography. Fogle was sentenced last month to more than 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to trading in child pornography and paying for sex with underage girls. Taylor was executive director of the Jared Foundation, a nonprofit that Fogle started to raise awareness and money to fight childhood obesity, from 2009 until May, when prosecutors filed child porn charges against Taylor.

Indiana authorities who raided Fogle’s suburban Indianapolis home in July have said their probe began in September 2014 based on a tip to Indiana State Police regarding Taylor’s sexual interest in children. Federal prosecutors said Fogle, a 38-year-old father of two, received photos or videos from Taylor of eight of Taylor’s 12 child victims and encouraged him to produce more child pornography. Taylor’s attorneys said in a court filing that Taylor is deeply remorseful for his actions, that he has a history of mental illness and that he was sexually abused as child.
