Her ex-husband Russell Taylor, who founded Fogle, a non-profit, pleaded guilty last year to 30 counts of child pornography and sexual abuse for his acts against nine children. The Justice Department said Taylor, 50, was sentenced earlier Monday to 27 years in prison.

When the crimes occurred, the ages of the victims ranged from 9 to 16 years.
