Former Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle Has New Ironic Prison Duty

Former Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle Has New Ironic Prison Duty

Some things never change.

Published March 25th

Subway pitchman turned social pariah Jared Fogle is serving time on child pornography charges in federal prison, but that hasn't stopped him from his day job of shilling sandwiches. Accodring to TMZ, Fogle has been assigned cafeteria duty at Federal Correction Institution Englewood, Colorado.

Fogle, who is at the beginning of his 15-year sentence, was moved to the cafeteria following a beatdown in January, when fellow inmate Steven Nigg attacked Fogle after finding out he hired "paid protection" in the clink. The heinous nature of Fogle's alleged crime was also a factor. Nigg's brother explained, “This isn’t the first time [Steven has] hit a child molester. It’s just the first time he got caught.”

Somehow, this duty change may make Fogle an even bigger target. He will not be working at the prisoner's cafeteria, but at a separate lunch room for the correctional officers, where he'll have access to better food than any of his fellow prisoners. So, no mystery meat. According to sources inside the prison, officers are quietly laughing about Fogle's reintroduction to the food service industry.
