Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle became a suspect in a federal child-pornography investigation last month when authorities raided his home. It didn’t look good for Fogle as July progressed; news broke that Subway would completely sever ties with him, and it was reported that the FBI had texts where he bragged about paying for sex with a 16-year-old girl.


It seems all of those damning reports were simply foretelling: FOX59 in Indianapolis reports that Fogle will allegedly plead guilty to possession of child pornography. Here are the details:

Sources say Fogle will accept a plea deal Wednesday. The U.S. Attorney’s Office will hold a press conference tomorrow afternoon to discuss the deal and charges against Fogle.

Fogle’s attorney, Ron Elberger, had no comment in regards to the plea deal. He said any information regarding the charges would come from the attorney’s office. Elberger did say Fogle’s suspension with Subway continues.


Considering Subway’s recent struggles, it doesn’t seem that this news will do anything to alter Fogle’s current relationship with the chain.

We’ll update as this story progresses.

UPDATE: Fogel has been found guilty by federal prosecutors of engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography, according to the Associated Press.

Documents released this morning by the U.S. attorney’s office state that “Fogle traveled to New York City to pay for sex acts with minors while he stayed in upscale hotels,” and he “knowingly received child pornography secretly produced by the then-director of his charitable foundation.”

The former Subway spokesman faces between five and 12.5 years in prison. According to the Washington Post, “Fogle will also pay 14 victims $1.4 million in restitution for counseling, support, treatment, or other assistance related to their victimization.”
