Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle has released his first message from prison, where he is serving time on child pornography charges.
In a letter from Fogle obtained by New York Post, he admitted, “I was really royally screwed together to end up where I am.”
“I was selfish and justified,” he wrote.

Fogle went on to explain that he does not take “culinary arts” and that the programs in prison are limited due to the pandemic. However, he trains a lot.
He never apologizes to his victims, but calls his actions “stupid mistakes” that he hopes to learn from.
As a conclusion to the letter, Fogle says he was inspired by a part in “The Shawshank Redemption”.
“Something like ‘You can either get busy living or get busy dying’ when you are sent to prison. I have done everything I can to get busy living and get the most out of this unwanted experience, ”he said.

Fogle is serving 15 years and eight months at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Englewood, Colorado. He must serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before the possibility of being released, which falls on March 24, 2029. He must then report as a sex offender.
