Get the deets on his failed appeal!

Looks like Jared Fogle won't be able to eat fresh for a full fifteen years.

On Thursday, it was revealed that the U.S. Court of Appeals denied the scandalized Subway spokesman's request for a shorter sentence for his sex crimes.

Last year, the fast food face was sentenced to 188 months — which is over 15 and a half years — in jail for multiple counts of child porn charges as well as soliciting sex with minors.

Leading Medical Organization Suggests Banning Tanning For Minors

Filed under: HealthSkinCancer

Tanning ban

Bad news for tanners.

The American Academy of Pediatrics announced today that laws should ban minors from going to tanning parlors, reflecting the opinion of other medical organizations including the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Dermatology.

Since 1992, Melanoma has been increasing by 3% each year in women between the ages of 15 and 39, which health experts attribute to the tanning craze that has swept the nation.

Discussing their strong stance against fake baking, the American Academy of Pediatric's Dr. Sophie Balk said:

"We are looking for legislation that prohibits kids from going to tanning salons. It's protecting our youth from something potentially harmful."

It is no surprise that the Indoor Tanning Association disagrees with any kind of tanning legislation. The associations spokesman, John Overstreet, believes it is a parenting issue, not a legal issue, saying:

"We're talking about getting a sun tan. This is a decision best left for parents, not the government. Let parents make the decision."

Frequent tanners who have been impacted by the serious risks, lke Samantha Hessel, may think differently.

After spending 20 minutes in a tanning bed 3 to 4 times a week all throughout high school, she was diagnosed with melanoma by her freshman year of college.

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, which is a risk of tanning all-too-often ignored by teenagers in order to look their best. Hessel explained her continual contamination to UVA rays, which can lead to wrinkles and DNA damage, by saying:

"I wanted to look good and have that darker skin color. I think society makes you feel being tanned is prettier than being pasty white."

So true and so sad.

Besides risking their lives by increasing their chance for developing cancer, teenagers are pre-aging their skin by 10 to 20 years.

Overwhelming data points to a direct correlation between skin cancer and tanning bed use, but unfortunately teenagers have more "important" things to worry about, like prom, then to give serious thought to the consequences of their actions.

We understand kids think they are invincible at a young age and parents should be educating their children on the risks of UVA exposure, however, maybe a little push from the government wouldn't hurt.

Awful. KC And The Sunshine Band Member Molests Multiple Teenage Boys.

ap070209025173_370x278jb.jpg

So effed up.

Richard R. Finch formerly of KC and the Sunshine Band was arrested on Tuesday after a young boy told authorities the 56 year old musician had engaged in sexual acts with the minor!

Upon further question, Finch allegedly admitted that he had molested other boys, ranging from ages 13-17!

He's currently being held in custody on $250,000 bail. An arraignment date has not been set.

So unbelievably horrible. He needs to be locked up!

We hope those poor kids are getting the help they need.

Update: Harry Wayne Casey of KC & The Sunshine Band has just released the following statement:

Richard Finch has not been a part of KC & The Sunshine Band for over 30 years nor is he a co-founder.  Because of the recent allegations, I would like to clarify certain misinformation about Mr. Finch in relation to the band. 
I created KC & The Sunshine Band in 1973.  Mr. Finch subsequently joined the band a year later in 1974.  While his talent contributed to the early success of the KCSB sound, his involvement ended in 1980.  In the 30 years since, Mr. Finch has continuously held onto the illusion and given the impression that his contribution was much more integral than it actually was.  Those stories are categorically untrue.  Hence, that is why the band has always been called “KC” & THE SUNSHINE BAND.
KC & The Sunshine Band continues to successfully flourish, having toured around the world for over 37 years.
The serious allegations confronting Mr. Finch have nothing to do with me nor with KC & The Sunshine Band.  Those legal issues associated with this case will be dealt with via the judicial system of the state of Ohio.  Our hearts go out to the alleged victims and their families.
