Jared Fogle will reportedly plead guilty to possession of child pornography.
According to multiple Indiana-based sources, the former Subway mogul will accept a plea deal Wednesday (Aug. 19, 2015). The U.S. Attorney’s Office will hold a press conference to discuss the deal and charges against him.
Back in July, the FBI and state police raided his the Indiana home to search for child pornography. The sandwich chain, Subway, later revealed in a statement that they would be parting ways with Fogle.
Subway and Jared Fogle have mutually agreed to suspend their relationship due to the current investigation. Jared continues to cooperate with authorities, and he expects no actions to be forthcoming. Both Jared and Subway agree that this was the appropriate step to take.
The 37-year-old first rose to fame in 1999 after his Subway-inspired weight loss. He became the face of the chain, often seen on TV commercials holding out his former pants waistline to highlight his weight change.
