If this part of the tawdry Jared story turns out to be true, paying $100 for sex with a 16 year old from Craigslist, it will make things quite bad.
I never ceased to be amazed at the poor judgement shown by some guys. He was worth $13-$15 million according to some reports, but used Craigslist, and apparently texted people affiliated with Subway about it.
I would of course hope that none of us are ever with anyone under 18. But if one of use were with someone off of Backpage or Annonce who said she was underaged afterward, the logical reaction would be to delete every text and record of the calls, drive away from the incall location at the posted speed limit, destroy the phone and get a brand new phone number, and never mention it to anyone. Of course jared seemed to be seeking underaged girls, so perhaps his whole thinking mechanism is warped.
The dangers of a case like this to the ordinary John is if Subway management did in fact know about his interest in minors in 2008, did nothing, and now gets nailed from a bad publicity and legal liability standpoint (there might be quite the line of young ladies lining up claiming to have been that 16 year-old). The reaction of corporate America will be to overreact like they did in the sexual harassment arena after Anita Hill, and to destroy any male employee caught or suspected of purchasing sex even when the transaction is consensual and involves adults.
I realize some may not know what the hell Subway is, given Montreal's great cuisine. It is an overpriced sandwich shop that claims to have more nutritious food than other fast food competitors. Jared and his weight loss from constantly eating at Subway was their primary marketing technique.
