The latest news in the Jared Fogle is absolutely sickening. A former journalist allegedly recorded conversations she had with the former face of Subway, in which he reportedly describes his attraction to and sexual encounters with young boys and girls, and the audio will be played during the journalist’s interview with Dr. Phil on Oct. 28. Get a first listen here.
“I had a little boy *********,” Jared allegedly says on the tape. “It just felt so good. I mean, it felt — it felt so good.” The journalist, Rochelle Herman-Walrond, met Jared in 2006 when he did an interview on her radio show, and when he reportedly made a comment about middle school girls she found strange, the Florida native worked on investigating further by befriending him and secretly recording their conversations.
Rochelle plays these alleged recordings for Dr. Phil during their interview Thursday, and explains, “I felt like I was so dirty. My soul was dirty.” The preview also includes part of another alleged interview with Jared, in which Rochelle asks, “What turns you on most…the young girls or the young boys?” His alleged response: “Both of them do. Both of them.”
The journalist turned her tapes over to the FBI over the summer, and in July, investigators conducted a thorough search of Jared’s home. Fogle reached a deal with federal prosecutors in Aug., agreeing to plead guilty to child pornography charges just one day before it was reported he’d also solicited minors for sex. Jared has paid $1 million in restitution to 10 of his 14 victims, and is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 19. As an agreement from his plea deal, Jared faces a minimum five years in prison, and prosecutors have agreed not to seek more than 12 and a half years, although this term is not binding for a judge.
Rochelle’s full interview airs on Dr. Phil’s talk show Oct. 28 and 29. Scary world that we live in.
