Former Subway spokesperson, Jared Fogle, is set to plead guilty to child pornography charges, according to reports.

Fogle shot to fame when he claimed that he lost significant weight by sticking to a diet of Subway sandwiches. For many years he featured in the Subway ads and press releases. He had also started the Jared Foundation which is probably now struggling to get by.

Taylor – a sick man!

However, his fortunes underwent a reversal with the arrest of Russell Taylor, the director of Jared Foundation, on charges of child pornography. He was accused of both production and possession of child pornography. Taylor tried to unsuccessfully commit suicide in jail.

In July, Federal officials raided Fogle’s Zionville home and seized may DVDs and computers. Officials have confirmed that they are serving warrants for child pornography in Fogle’s home. Soon after the raid Subway terminated its association with Fogle and erased all references to him in its website and marketing material.

According to the reports Fogle will accept a plea deal on Wednesday related to the child pornography charges. It is expected that the US Attorney’s Office will hold a press conference on the issue.

Fogle’s attorney has declined to comment on the issue and said that it is up to the Attorney’s Office to issue a statement.

No Subway sandwiches in prison!

Other reports say that Jared is expected to be charged with travelling to have sex with a minor. He is also expected to be charged with distributing and receiving child pornography and conspiracy to receive and distribute child pornography. Fogle is said to have repeatedly used Internet social networking to travel for engaging in commercial sexual activity. Of these at least twice he travelled to New York for the purpose of commercial sexual activity with those under the age of 18.

 

He is said to have not only engaged in sex with a 17 year old but to have asked her to help him find another underage girl for sex, the “younger the girl, the better.” OK, the latter is worrisome.

He also received naked and semi naked pictures of minors engaged in sexual activity from Taylor. It is said that Jared was aware that they were minors, some as young as 13.
