Ex-Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is expected to plead guilty to possession of child pornography charges, according to reports from multiple Indianapolis news outlets (http://fox59.com/2015/08/18/former-subway-spokesman-jared-fogle-to-plead-guilty-to-child-pornography-charges/).


According to three local TV stations, Fogle will accept a plea
deal Wednesday. The U.S. Attorney's Office will discuss the deal and
charges against Fogle Wednesday afternoon, reports say.

Fogle's attorney, Ron Elberger, had no comment to the stations regarding the plea deal.

In July, authorities descended (http://www.people.com/article/fbi-police-raid-subway-spokesman-jared-fogles-indiana-home)
on the Zionsville, Indiana, home where Fogle lives with his wife and
two children in a raid that lasted 11 hours while they removed
electronics from the house. Fogle's lawyer Ron Elberger told PEOPLE that
the 37-year-old was cooperating with officials.

The investigation came just months after the executive director
of Fogle's Jared Foundation was arrested on federal child porn charges
himself.

Russell Taylor, 43, was taken into police custody in April and charged (http://www.people.com/article/jared-foundation-director-russell-taylor-child-porn-charges)
with seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of
possession of child pornography. He reportedly attempted suicide in May,
but he failed and remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshal's Office.

In a statement released the day of the raid, Subway announced that they were severing ties (http://www.people.com/article/subway-drops-jared-fogle-fbi-raid) with Fogle, who first appeared in a commercial for the fast food chain in 2000.

"Subway and Jared Fogle have mutually agreed to suspend their
relationship due to the current investigation," Subway said in a
statement. "Both Jared and Subway agree that this was the appropriate
step to take."

And in April, CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Child Health)
suspended their relationship with the Jared Foundation following
Taylor's arrest, the organization previously confirmed to PEOPLE in a
statement.

When Taylor was arrested, Fogle said he was "shocked" by the
horrific allegations against him and promptly cut ties with him as well.

Neighbors described (http://www.people.com/article/jared-fogle-neighbors-shocked-by-raid-ex-subway-spokesman) Fogle as a quiet, but friendly guy. "He's always waving and saying hi," Julie Hole told PEOPLE. "I hope he's inncocent."



I've never been much of a porn hound...nevermind child porn...so, I don't get it. You'd especially think that after his buddy got arrested in April, he would've done something...dunno what they have, but interested to hear what they got him on.

I've known a couple military dudes busted for child porn...neither turned out to real real "serious"...one guy just had multiple computers that were downloaded porn pictures 24/7...turned out there was some child porn in the mix...most of the stuff he never even got around to opening...it just became some kind of game to him to collect as much as he could.

The other guy was kind of a porn addict that just became addicted to get more and more hardcore/bizarre/taboo stuff...don't think he was actually into children at all...was just like a porn-chasing thing...the most taboo thing you could get...that was the excitement rather than the actual children...I think that's the case with quite a few of these...but, not sure.

So, not to say that child porn is ever "not serious"...but I think there's a difference between guys like that and someone actually into it because the children excite them or, god forbid, manufacturing it, who are the real super-creepers..

All i can say, if they are proven, then GOOD on them for dropping his butt.

But i wonder.. If the charges get dropped due to insufficient evidence, or Jared gets found innocent if it goes to court, will Subway -reinstate him-?

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle has agreed to plead guilty to allegations that he paid for sex acts with minors and received child pornography that he knew had been secretly produced by the former director of his charitable foundation, federal prosecutors said in court documents released Wednesday.

The agreement filed ahead of an expected court appearance by Fogle said he agrees to pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims, who will each receive $100,000. Fogle will also be required to register as a sex offender and undergo treatment for sexual disorders.
The government has agreed not to seek a sentence of more than 12½ years in prison, and Fogle has agreed not to ask for less than five years, according to the documents, which say Fogle will plead guilty to one count of traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography.
Federal judges have wide discretion in sentencing. The child porn charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. The count involving sex with a minor is punishable by up to 30 years.
The Associated Press left messages seeking comment with Fogle attorney Ron Elberger.
Fogle, 37, became Subway's pitchman after shedding more than 200 pounds as a college student, in part by eating the chain's sandwiches. He was the public face of the company for more than 15 years — a period in which its number of locations tripled, making Subway the world's largest restaurant chain.

Subway suspended the partnership in July after agents raided his home in the affluent Indianapolis suburb of Zionsville, and the chain said this week that it had ended its relationship with Fogle.
Federal prosecutors allege in the documents that the married father of two traveled to pay for sex acts, including with minors, from 2007 until as recently as June and that he repeatedly planned business trips to coincide with his sexual pursuits.
On Nov. 3, 2012, Fogle allegedly paid a 17-year-old girl who he had found online to engage in sex acts while he was staying at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, according to the papers. Several months later, he again paid her for sex acts while staying at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, according to the document, which says the girl told Fogle her age when they first met and that he knew she was a minor.
After the first meeting, the document said, Fogle texted the girl and offered to pay her a fee if she could find him another underage girl to pay for sex acts.
During these discussions, Fogle "stated that he would accept a 16-year-old girl, while stating that the younger the girl, the better," the document said.

Between 2011 and 2013, Fogle also repeatedly sent text messages to other escorts, "soliciting them to provide him with access to minors as young as 14 to 15 years," the document said, adding that he would only make such requests after engaging in sex acts with the escorts to "insure that they were not undercover police officers."
The document also alleged that Fogle on multiple occasions received sexually explicit images and videos produced by Russell Taylor, 43, who ran the charitable Jared Foundation. The foundation sought to raise awareness about childhood obesity and arranged for Fogle to visit schools and urge children to adopt healthy eating and exercise habits.
Two months before Fogle's home was raided, authorities arrested Taylor on seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Investigators said they discovered a cache of sexually explicit photos and videos Taylor allegedly produced by secretly filming minor children at his home.
After those charges were filed, Fogle issued a statement saying he was shocked by the allegations and was severing all ties with Taylor.
Prosecutors also allege that Fogle received from Taylor multiple images and videos, some of which were taken by a video camera hidden in a clock radio that filmed children changing clothes or bathing. Some were taken in buildings were Taylor lived.

The document says Fogle knew those depicted were minors, some as young as 13 or 14 years old, and in some cases knew the minors involved by name and had met them "during social events in Indiana."

Every time that I saw him on TV, he was wearing long sleeved shirts.

Was that to hide needle tracks on his arms?

Or was it because he has folds of skin on his arms from weight loss, with no attempt at building up his musculature, to fill out the overly stretched skin, which was previously underlaid with a lot of fat?

I spend a lot of nights, laying awake, tortured by these questions.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The wife of former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle filed for divorce on Wednesday, saying she was shocked by the allegations that he engaged in sex acts with underage girls and traded in child pornography.
While her well-known husband was in federal court in Indianapolis to hear the charges against him, Katie Fogle released a statement through her attorney expressing disgust at his actions.
"Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared," she said. "I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage. My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children."

Katie Fogle said it would be her only public statement about the matter and she asked for privacy for her family.
In a separate statement issued through a public relations firm, Fogle's family said they were "shocked and profoundly disappointed" by his behavior but grateful that he is accepting responsibility. They also expressed concern for the well-being of those affected by his actions.
The statement was released on behalf of "the Fogle family" and didn't specify whether Katie Fogle also endorsed it.
Fogle has agreed to plead guilty on a later date to one count each of traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and the distribution and receipt of child pornography.

Good for her...

Because it is being hidden from them?

I was shocked at how much money he made for those commercials, he's worth 15 million.

Between alimony, child support (x2 kids) and the 'maintenance of her standard of living' ... I would guess more than half.

Might be too soon but I saw a meme that was funny as hell. It's a picture of Jared holding up his huge pants from when he was fat. It says, "Jared both began and ended his career trying to get into a small pair of pants"
