Subway’s Jared Fogle to Plead Guilty to Sex With Minors, Child Porn

Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is expected to plead guilty on Wednesday morning to charges related to sex with minors and child pornography, according to a plea agreement released by the U.S. Attorney of the Southern District of Indiana.

Fogle faces at least five years and no more more than 12.5 years in prison. He will pay 14 underage victims $1.4 million — $100,000 each — in restitution, according to the Associated Press.

Fogle will be 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 is expected to accept a plea deal, avoiding a trial. He agreed to undergo treatment for sexual disorders and register as a sex offender, the AP reports. He has been placed on home detention and will be monitored by GPS.

According to the plea agreement, some of Fogle’s acts include traveling to New York City and paying at least two minors, a 16-year-old and 17-year-old, for sex at the Plaza Hotel and Ritz Carlton Hotel between 2010 and 2013.

Fogle texted escorts “to provide him with access to minors as young as 14 to 15 years for purposes of commercial sex acts with him.” “The younger the girl, the better,” he told one of the victims.

He also admitted to receiving child pornography produced by Russell Taylor, the former executive director of his charitable foundation, between 2011 and 2015. Taylor was arrested in April on federal charges of production and possession of child pornography. The victims were as young as 6.

Fogle’s wife, Katie, released a statement on Wednesday announcing plans of a divorce.

“Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared. I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage,” Katie said in a statement released Wednesday by attorney James Reed.

Subway said on Tuesday that it “no longer has a relationship” with Fogle. The company suspended its contract with Fogle, who worked for the food chain for more than 15 years by appearing in commercials promoting his 200-pound weight-loss on a sandwich diet, in July after charges first emerged.

The FBI raided Fogle’s home in Zionsville, Ind. five weeks ago as part of a federal investigation, seizing several computers in the process.
