The recordings are from conversations between Fogle and then journalist Rochelle Herman-Walrond. After appearing on her radio show in 2006, Fogle made remarks that troubled Herman-Walrond. She then befriended the pitchman and began secretly recording over a five-year period their phone conversations, which reportedly include Fogle talking about his sexual preference for children and detailing instances of abuse.
After an FBI raid on his home in July, Fogle plead guilty in August to charges related to sex with minors and child pornography.
He was charged for traveling “in interstate commerce in order to engage in unlawful sexual acts with minors, and (attempting) to do so” as well as “distributing and receiving visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, and conspiring with others to do so.”
Fogle will be sentenced by a federal judge on Nov. 19 and faces up to 12.5 years in prison. He recently paid $1 million in restitution to 10 of his underage victims.
