Jared Is Definitely Not Coming Back to Subway
Ex-Subway pitchman Jared Fogle will plead guilty to receiving child pornography and engaging in sexual acts with minors, according to a report by the Associated Press.
Documents released by federal prosecutors on Wednesday show that Fogle -- who until recently was the face of the massive sandwich chain -- faces one count each of "travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor" and "distribution and receipt of child pornography." Under the plea deal, prosecutors will recommend a sentence of no more than 12 and a half years in prison while Fogle has agreed to ask for a sentence of no less than 5 years in prison, according to the report.
Additionally, the 37-year-old will pay out a total of $1.4 million in restitution to 14 victims who were minors ($100,000 each), register as a sex offender, and get treatment for sexual disorders, according to the report.
Ahead of the announcement, Subway tweeted Tuesday night that Fogle is not coming back:
We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment.— SUBWAY® (@SUBWAY) August 18, 2015
The deal comes little over a month after authorities raided Fogle's home during a child pornography investigation, upon which he was detained but not arrested. At that time, Subway said it had temporarily suspended its relationship with Fogle.
