LITTLETON, Colo. — Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle will be transferred to Colorado to serve his prison sentence in the Federal Correctional Institution Englewood.

The court strongly recommended the Federal Bureau of Prisons send Fogle to the prison in Littleton because of its special sex offender program.

The 38-year-old pleaded guilty last month on charges of child pornography and crossing state lines to pay for sex with minors and was sentenced to 15 years, 8 months in prison.

Federal prosecutors had asked federal Judge Tanya Walton Pratt that Fogle be sentenced to 12 1/2 years, while Fogle’s attorneys asked for a five-year sentence. He faced a maximum possible sentence of 50 years.

“I take full responsibility for what I have done,” Fogle said in court. “Not a day will go by where I won’t think of (the victims.) I hope the restitution will help in their lives.”

FCI Englewood is a low-security prison located at 9595 West Quincy Avenue in Littleton, near the intersection of Quincy and South Kipling Street.

Fogle isn’t the only “celebrity” to be held at FCI Englewood; former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is serving his sentence there as well for corruption charges, including attempting to sell then-President-elect Barack Obama’s vacated Senate seat.
