Reports: Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle to Plead Guilty to Child Porn Charges
Indianapolis’s WXIN reports that suspended Subway spokesman Jared Fogle will plead guilty to possession of child pornography charges. FBI agents raided Fogle’s Indiana home last month, apparently as part of a long-term investigation.
FBI sources reportedly told WXIN that the charges are expected to be announced tomorrow afternoon. RTV6 and TMZ also report that Fogle will accept a plea deal.
Russell Taylor, the former executive director of Fogle’s charity, The Jared Foundation, was arrested in April and charged with child exploitation, possession of child pornography, and voyeurism. Police claim they found some 500 photos in his home; computers and DVDs were also reportedly seized from Fogle’s home in July.
When reached for comment by WXIN reporter, Subway said their relationship with Fogle continues as a “mutual suspension.”*
*UPDATE 7:10 p.m.: Following reports that their former spokesperson would plead guilty to child pornography charges, Subway announced Tuesday evening that it “no longer [has] a relationship” with Fogle.
We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment.— SUBWAY® (@SUBWAY) August 18, 2015
