Former Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle Pays $1 Million to Victims

Jared Fogle, the disgraced former Subway spokesperson who has agreed to plead guilty to child pornography and sex crime charges, has paid out a total of $1 million in restitution to ten of his victims, according to the Associated Press.

Three adults and seven minors (or their parents) have received checks of $100,000 by Thursday, says Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven DeBrota. Four more victims may also receive payment before Fogle is sentenced next month.

The money is intended to be used for medical care, mental health counseling and other needs of the victims.

Fogle agreed to plead guilty to the crimes on Aug. 19. He will be charged for traveling “in interstate commerce in order to engage in unlawful sexual acts with minors, and (attempting) to do so,” and also “distributing and receiving visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, and conspiring with others to do so.”

Acts mentioned in Fogle’s plea agreement include traveling to New York City and paying a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old for sex at the Plaza Hotel and the Ritz Carlton Hotel between 2010 and 2013. Fogle also apparently texted escorts for sex with minors as young as 14 and 15 years old.

Subway cut ties with its former spokesman in August when reports emerged that he would plead guilty, issuing a statement that it “no longer has a relationship” with Fogle.

Fogle will be sentenced on Nov. 19. He faces at least five years and no more than 12.5 years in prison.
