Ex-Subway pitchman Jared Fogle pleading guilty to child porn, sex with young girls

Federal prosecutors said on Wednesday that Jared Fogle, the longtime public face of Subway, has agreed to plead guilty to charges that he paid for sex with minors and received child pornography. Fogle is facing as much as 12-and-a-half years in prison. In documents released on Wednesday, federal authorities said the child pornography Fogle viewed was produced by the former director of his charity, Russell Taylor, and that Fogle, 37, has agreed to pay $1.4 million in restitution — $100,000 apiece to 14 victims. The charges revealed in the court documents are shocking. Fogle, a married father of two who became Subway’s pitchman 15 years ago after dropping about 200 pounds on a diet consisting largely of meals bought from the fast food giant, on numerous occasions set up paid-for sexual liaisons with girls under the age of 18, according to the documents. Officials said Fogle had an affinity for girls who were very young. In text messages with escort services, Fogle allegedly asked “them to provide him with access to minors as young as 14 to 15 years” of age. Fogle’s home was raided by federal authorities in early July.
