Perverted sandwich huckster Jared Fogle will be experiencing a new type of $5 foot-long in the U.S. prison system. TMZ and ABC News are reporting that Subway’s body beautiful will cop a plea deal today in Indianapolis which will include jail time. It turns out Jared IS Pedo Bear’s nerdy cousin. Federal prosecutors have stated that he’s going to be charged with paying for sex acts with minors and “receiving child pornography that he knew had been secretly produced by the former director of his charitable foundation.” The FBI raided Jared’s Zionsville, ID home last month with warrants looking for kiddie porn, leaving with computers and DVDs. I guess they found some. Gross.
ABC sez that the Feds have agreed not to seek a prison sentence of more than 12 1/2 years. He’s agreed not to seek less than five in the chokey. He’s also going to have to pay 1.4 million in restitution, register as a sex offender, and undergo treatment for sexual disorders.
This is another one of those lengthy posts full of the worst humanity has to offer. Apologies in advance.
The Feds reportedly have evidence that Mr. Subway had been actively pursuing sex with minors right up until June of this year.
Federal prosecutors allege in the documents that the married father of two traveled to pay for sex acts, including with minors, from 2007 until as recently as June and that he repeatedly planned business trips to coincide with his sexual pursuits.
The Plaza Hotel in NYC better call in a priest to bless whichever rooms he was staying in.
On Nov. 3, 2012, Fogle allegedly paid a 17-year-old girl who he had found online to engage in sex acts while he was staying at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, according to the papers. Several months later, he again paid her for sex acts while staying at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, according to the document, which says the girl told Fogle her age when they first met and that he knew she was a minor.
He went on to try and use these girls to procure even younger girls for him, stating “the younger the girl, the better.” Oh, and it gets worse.
Between 2011 and 2013, Fogle also repeatedly sent text messages to other escorts, “soliciting them to provide him with access to minors as young as 14 to 15 years,” the document said, adding that he would only make such requests after engaging in sex acts with the escorts to “insure that they were not undercover police officers.”

If you’ll recall, Fogle, 37, is all kinds of yuck. Earlier this month, evidence of really creepy texts Jared exchanged with a former Subway franchise owner were turned over by her attorney. Fogle, who was reportedly in a sexual relationship with the woman, texted about paying a 16-year-old for sex on Craigslist and pushed for a threesome with the women’s then underage cousin.
This all started to come to light when the former head of Jared’s charitable foundation, Russell Taylor, was busted for the same sort of evil shit earlier this year. FOX 59 reports that the cops found over 500 images and videos of dark-sided awful on computers at Taylor’s home. He unsuccessfully attempted suicide in jail soon after, and ended up on life support. Federal prosecutors claim that Jared received pornographic images and videos of kids from Taylor that the Jared Foundation head had created himself. Fogle released a statement after Taylor’s arrest that he was “shocked” and had cut all ties with him. Wow, a fellow child molester AND a shitty friend.
After the raid, Subway had suspended their relationship with Jared pending the outcome of the investigation. They Tweeted this today.
We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment.

I’m assuming he won’t be receiving a severance package. Fogle came to Subway’s attention in 1999 when, as a student at Indiana University, he claimed to have lost a significant amount of weight by only eating their sandwiches. He went on to become their main spokesguy.
Wikipedia (I know, I know, I’m a lazy researcher) sez that Subway’s profits tripled from 1998 to 2011 due to their Fogle ad campaigns, and Fogle is reportedly worth 15 million. Gee, no wonder why Subway didn’t exactly hurtle to investigate when the franchise owner lady reportedly went to them with stories of Fogle’s predilections.
Jared is effed. Pedos normally don’t fare well in prison. I hope his cellmate the Hamburglar beats the shit out of him.
UPDATE: Jared Fogle’s wife has filed for divorce. TMZ says that she released a statement, noting that she was “shocked and disappointed” by her husband’s crimes. (“Disappointed” sounds like sort of a mild reaction in this case, huh? But what do I know? (A: “Very little.”) Maybe she’s got good Xanax.
Katie 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.”
