When last we left disgraced former Subway sandwich pitchman and convicted sex criminal Jared Fogle he had just received a prison yard thumping from a guy who hated pederasts. The man who was once among the most recognizable faces in America has had a tough time adapting to his new life behind bars but he was the recipient of some rare good news this week.

According to the New York Post “Jared Fogle just had his best day in a long time”:

Disgraced Subway pitchman Jared Fogle can get his dough back from his partner in crime, a judge has ruled.

Fogle sued Russell Taylor — currently serving a 27-year sentence for child porn and child exploitation — for back payments from the $191,000 loan he gave him in 2014 to purchase a home in Wayne Township, Ind., according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

Taylor stopped making the $850 monthly payments on the house, which is the same residence where he secretly recorded young children changing and showering, when he was arrested last April, officials said.

A court ruled that the 43-year-old felon, who ran the Jared Foundation prior to his arrest, would have to cough up the $184,000 he still owed.

Fogle, who is in the slammer for 16 years for having sex with minors and possession of child porn, is now allowed to put the house on the market.

But the dark cloud covering up the silver lining is that Fogle will be in the slam for another twelve years barring suicide or future run-ins with fellow inmates who hate sex offenders. He may have been awarded the money but it’s questionable that he’ll ever be able to spend it.
