Jared Fogle Will Pay $1.4 Million to 14 Underage Victims, Serve Prison Time and Register as Sex Offender

He plans to plead guilty

Jared Fogle solicited sex from minors and knowingly received and shared child pornography created by his now-imprisoned charitable foundation director, according to documents released today by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Indianapolis.

The Associated Press reports that at a press conference today, prosecutors revealed details of the charges to which Fogle, a longtime Subway spokesman, is expected to plead guilty at a later date.

At today's hearing a not guilty plea was entered on Fogle's behalf; he will be released with an electronic monitoring device. 

Fogle plans to plead guilty to one count of travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography, authorities said. He will register as a sex offender and seek treatment for sexual disorders.

While Fogle's prison sentence is not yet determined, prosecutors say they will not request more than 12.5 years in prison and that Fogle has agreed not to request less than five years. He will pay a total of $1.4 million in restitution, split among 14 victims at $100,000 each, according to the AP. It was unclear this morning how many of those victims were involved in child pornography and how many Fogle is accused of having sex with.

Fogle's attorney did not comment to the press. 

When news of Fogle's pending charges arose Tuesday, Subway announced it was immediately severing all ties with the former spokesman.

The former Subway pitchman's wife, Katie Fogle, released a statement Wednesday morning to the press. She will be seeking a divorce. 

"Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared," she said. "I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage. My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children. Neither I nor my family will have any further comment on the matter. I appreciate respect for my family's privacy during this difficult time."
