INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Federal investigators said Wednesday it took time to build a case against former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle, who’s accused of paying for sex with minors and both possessing and distributing child pornography.
Some of the numbers associated with the case help explain the in-depth nature of the case.
- 159,634 text messages analyzed by federal authorities.
- 27,140 emails analyzed by federal authorities.
- 47,623 images analyzed by federal authorities.
- 3,394 video analyzed by federal authorities.
- Search warrants were issued for: 16 smartphones, 5 basic phones, 5 mp3 players, 6 harddrives, 5 cameras, 10 flash drives, 22 DVDs, and more.
The number of victims is perhaps the most important. Federal authorities have identified 14 victims. Of those, 12 were inside of Indiana and 2 were outside of Indiana. As of 2014, 4 of those victims were adults and 10 were still minors.
These numbers also represent the investigation into Russell Taylor, the executive director of Fogle’s charitable foundation. Federal authorities say the two worked together on some of the crimes they’re accused of committing.
