Creepy Jared wanted to give kids roofies, pal says By Laura Italiano December 10, 2015 | 4:15pm Pedophile ex-Subway spokesman Jared Fogle was even more depraved than previously thought, according to newly detailed court papers that claim he once tried to get date rape drugs so he could knock kids out and molest them. The sex-crazed sandwich pitchman sought out roofies in 2012, allege the new papers, which were filed by his co-defendant, Russell Taylor. Taylor, the former director of Fogle’s charitable foundation, was sentenced to 27 years in prison in Indianapolis on Thursday in the same child porn case that got Fogle a 15-year sentence last month. Taylor’s court filings, obtained by the Indianapolis Star, apparently do not reveal whether he did get drugs for Fogle, his boss for 12 years. Fogle and Taylor, both married fathers of young children, pretended throughout that time to be promoting healthy living and helping young people, but were instead debauched drunkards, Taylor’s court papers say. The two would “drink like fishes” on Fogle’s dime, claimed Taylor, who made $40,000 a year directing Fogle’s Jared Foundation. “He’d pay more for wine in a year than he paid me to work for him,” Taylor said. Taylor and his wife were already “swingers” who participated in orgies when he first met Fogle at an elementary school, which Taylor was visiting as a youth program manager for the American Heart Association, the papers say. That very day — right before addressing the kids on the importance of healthy eating — Fogle told Taylor “an inappropriate knock-knock joke which referenced having sex with children,” the Star reported that Taylor’s court papers say. The two men soon became like “an old married couple,” an expression they both used to describe their relationship. The New York Post cover for Aug. 20, 2015 Through the Jared Foundation, Taylor traveled with Fogle across the country and around the world — all the while sharing drinks, prostitutes and sick confidences. Sometime around 2008, Fogle began pressuring Taylor to take hidden-camera images of his own children and their young friends in the bathroom of his home. Fogle owned Taylor’s house and controlled his livelihood, Taylor said in the court papers. So he and his wife, Angela, complied with Fogle’s disgusting requests. Angela has not been charged. By 2012, Fogle “asked me to get (a date rape drug) to drug kids so he could see them in person,” Taylor said in the papers, in which Taylor tried to lay blame for their depravity on Fogle. “He wanted me to drug kids, to knock them out (so he could) touch them,” Taylor said. Fogle was also “psychologically abusive,” making Taylor call him “daddy.” “He would say, ‘Who is paying for this stuff?’ And I would say, ‘You are, daddy,’” Taylor claimed. Prior to Taylor’s sentencing Thursday, his attorneys said he is deeply remorseful for his actions, has a history of mental illness and was sexually abused as a child.
