Ex-head of Jared Fogle’s charity seeks sentence review

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): A man who once headed former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle’s anti-obesity charity wants his sentence vacated or modified.

Russell Taylor was sentenced to 27 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to child exploitation and distributing child pornography.

The Indianapolis Star reports Taylor’s Thursday court filing seeking a sentence review includes the claim that his ex-attorneys failed to challenge a search warrant that led to the discovery of child pornography on his computers and other electronic devices.

A U.S. Attorney’s office spokesman says the office has no comment.

Fogle is serving a more than 15-year sentence after pleading guilty to distributing and receiving child pornography and traveling out of state to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.

The Indiana man acknowledged receiving some child pornography from Taylor.
