Jared Fogle, the former Subway spokesman, will plead guilty to possession of child pornogrpahy charges, according to reports. Fogle will accept a plea deal on Wednesday, and the US Attorney’s office will hold a press conference tomorrow as well in order to discuss the charges against him.
Via Fox 59:
The charges come after federal agents raided Fogle’s Zionsville home in early July. FBI sources confirmed to FOX59 state and federal investigators were serving warrants at his home in connection with a child pornography investigation. Several computers and DVDs were seized from Fogle’s home.
Earlier this year, Russell Taylor, the former director of the Jared Foundation started by Fogle, was arrested in a child pornography case. He was accused of possessing and producing child pornography. Investigators said a search of Taylor’s home turned up more than 500 videos with images of child pornography. In May, Taylor unsuccessfully tried to kill himself while in jail.
Fogle was initially suspended as a spokesman from Subway pending an investigation, but Subway has confirmed that its relationship with him has officially ended after over 15 years of partnership.
Wow. To say that we were rooting for Fogle is the understatement of the century.
