“Once he lost weight, it seemed as though in a short time he had hyper-sexuality,” forensic psychiatrist John Bradford testified for the defense at Fogle’s sentencing Thursday morning in Indianapolis. “There are brain disorders that can be associated with sexual drive.”
Bradford, of the University of Ottawa, testified shortly after Fogle pleaded guilty to child-porn charges.
Fogle — who famously dropped 245 pounds on a diet of turkey and veggie subs — will be sentenced later Thursday.
The psychiatrist said Fogle had “mild or infrequent fantasies about pre-pubertal children,” but the psychiatrist said his diagnosis is “mild pedophilia,” the Indianapolis Star reported.
“There’s no evidence I know that he molested a child,” Bradford said by phone.
Thank goodness for that last part, but as someone who sat on the jury in a child porn case, I can tell you that the mere existence of this stuff means that somewhere a child was molested.
Fogle was sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison.
