Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle has agreed to plead guilty to allegations that he paid for sex acts with minors and received child pornography, federal prosecutors said in court documents released Wednesday.
Fogle, 37, faces one count of travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography. According to the documents, he agreed to serve at least five years in prison, and will also pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims. He will now be required to register as a sex offender and undergo treatment for sexual disorders.
Fogle is scheduled to appear in front of a judge in Indianapolis Federal Courthouse on Wednesday.
Both the FBI and Indiana State Police raided Fogle's home in July, two months after Russell Taylor -- the executive director of the Jared Foundation, which raises awareness about childhood obesity -- was taken into custody in Indianapolis on federal child pornography charges. According to the plea agreement, Fogle received child pornography from Taylor on "multiple occasions" from 2011 to 2015. The unidentified victims in the images and videos, who were unaware they were being filmed, were as young as approximately 6 years old.
Feds also say that Fogle traveled from Indiana to New York City in November 2012 for sex with a minor -- who was 17 years old at the time -- at the Plaza Hotel, then again paid for sex acts while staying at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in January 2013. According to the victim, he repeatedly asked her and several others to provide him with access to minors as young as 14 years old.
Subway has already cut all ties with Fogle. "We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment," the franchise tweeted on Wednesday.
