On August 18th, it was reported that former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle was ready to plead guilty in the ongoing case of his possession of child pornography.
Feds believe that Fogle not only possessed a collection of child porn, but that he would also travel frequently to have sex with underage girls at upscale hotels such as the Plaza and Ritz-Carlton. There are allegations that Fogle would meet a 17-year-old girl at the Plaza Hotel who would often send him inappropriate photos and exchange sex for money.

According to Fogle’s attorney,
The prosecution accepted Jared’s petition to plea guilty on Wednesday, resulting in a prison sentence of up to 240 months for sharing his collection of child pornography, and another 360 months for statutory rape.
The government has additionally convicted Fogle for possession of photographs that the former head of the Jared Foundation, Russell Taylor, produced in his home. The photographs featured minors as young as 13 or 14 posing inappropriately.
