    US: Jared Fogle "Subway guy" traveled for sex with teens, distributed child porn

    [​IMG]
    INDIANAPOLIS — Former Subway restaurant pitchman Jared Fogle will admit to traveling across state lines to have sex with minors, as well as distributing and receiving child pornography, prosecutors said Wednesday.


    According to court documents released Wednesday by the U.S. Attorney of the Southern District of Indiana, Fogle traveled to New York for sex with at least two minors between about 2010 and 2013 at the Plaza Hotel and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The victims were 16 and 17 years old.
    The pornography included images of children as young as 6

    As a part of a plea agreement that was announced Wednesday, Fogle will pay 14 victims $100,000 each for a total of $1.4 million.In a court appearance Wednesday in Indianapolis, that lasted less than 15 minutes, Fogle, who is expected to plead guilty at a later date, heard the charges against him, was advised of his rights and placed on home detention.

    Police had searched Taylor's home on the day he was arrested. Officers found digital media cards and thumb drives that included "multiple video files of nude or partially nude minor children," according to court documents. There were more than 400 such videos.

    A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.Fogle, 37, sat with his head down and hands clasped. He nodded affirmatively and spoke softly in response to questions from the judge asking whether he understood the charges and the proceedings.Fogle exited the courthouse accompanied by police and his attorneys.

    Prosecutors have agreed to seek a sentence no greater than 12½ years. Fogle agreed not to seek a sentence of less than five years. In federal cases, prisoners must serve at least 85% of sentences.
    According to the court documents, Fogle repeatedly asked one of the minor victims and "several others" to "provide him with access to minors as young as 14 years" for sex. He told one of the victims, "The younger the girl, the better." Fogle said he would "really make it worth her while if she could find one."

    He also offered "numerous prostitutes" — apparently adults — with whom he had sex a finder's fee for access to minors he could pay for sex.Fogle repeatedly made travel plans to have business trips "coincide with his pursuit of commercial sex acts."

    The plea agreement says that on "multiple occasions" between about 2011 and 2015 Fogle received child pornography from Russell C. Taylor, the former executive director of his charity, The Jared Foundation. The unidentified victims in the photos and videos were as young as "approximately six years of age."


    Twelve identified victims were in photos and videos taken secretly at Taylor's home. All live in the Southern District of Indiana, which is central Indiana and south. In some cases, Fogle knew the victims' names and where they lived.In a statement released Wednesday by attorney James Reed of Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP on behalf of Fogle's wife, Katie, she said, "Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared. I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage."

    According to the documents,
    Fogle, faces one count of travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography.

    Local sources say the former Subway spokesman is expected to accept a plea deal. He's accused of possessing child pornography. Fogle's attorney, Jeremy Margolis, said Fogle will acknowledge responsibility for wrongdoing.

    "He knows that restitution can't undo the damage that he's done, but he will do what he can," Margolis said. "Jared Fogle expects to go to prison. He will do his time. He expects to get well. He will try to make amends to the people he affected." In a news conference after the court hearing, Doug Carter, superintendent of theIndiana State Police Department, said "I cannot think of anything more repugnant than sexually victimizing a child."

    Carter issued a warning to others: "Somebody knows what you're doing. ... Someone will tell us eventually." FBI, Indiana State Police and other agencies served a search warrant July 7 at Fogle's home in Zionsville, Ind. Federal officials have declined to comment on any aspect of the case, including the hours-long search that started before sunrise.

    Fogle's attorney at the time said his client had been cooperating with law enforcement and that he had not been "detained, arrested or charged with any crime or offense."The search followed the arrest April 29 of Taylor on preliminary child pornography charges. A statement from Subway at the time said the company believed the search at Fogle's home was related to the case against Taylor.

    Fogle fired Taylor soon after his arrest, saying he was "shocked" and that the foundation was "severing all ties" with the colleague who often accompanied him to the charitable events.Taylor attempted suicide a week after his arrest while in custody at the Marion County (Ind.) Jail. He remains in federal custody.A tip from a woman who contacted the Indiana State Police prompted the investigation into Taylor, court records said. The woman said Taylor, among other things, offered to send her images and video of young girls by text messaging.Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle leaves a police vehicle outside his home as a Federal authority holds the door, Tuesday, July 7, 2015, in Zionsville. FBI agents and Indiana State Police have removed electronics from the property.

    Federal prosecutors have twice delayed the filing of formal charges against Taylor. The judge who approved the court orders granting the extensions — the latest is until Sept. 3 — noted that "the ends of justice will be served" by the delays, indicating the possibility that Taylor was cooperating with investigators.

    Fogle became a sandwich pitchman after a 1999 article in Indiana University's student newspaper. It detailed how, in one year, while eating two Subway sandwiches per day, Fogle went from 425 pounds with a 60-inch waist to 180 pounds and a 34-inch waist.

    The following year, Fogle's first Subway commercial was televised, and he became a star, starting a career that drove sales for the company.

    His net worth was estimated at $15 million by celebritynetworth.com.

    Just checked Google News as usual again and it's still the top news.

    Below are some updates since this High Profile American Pedo is going to have a tough life and his schools threw him out from Alumni pics.

    Jared Fogle Out of the Picture After School Yanks Alumni Photo

    Subway has turned its back on former pitchman Jared Fogle, who is headed to jail for sex with an underage girl — and now his high school has, too.

    North Central High School in Indianapolis used to have the sandwich pitchman's photo on its alumni Hall of Fame. But on Thursday, there was a big hole in the display.A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan School District of Washington Township confirmed that Fogle's photo was removed after the announcement that he plans to plead guilty to federal charges and had agreed to serve at least five years behind bars.

    "It was just taken down," the spokeswoman said when asked if there had been a demand to remove Fogle's image.

    Oh more news about this American Pedo as his wife files for divorce.

    Jared Fogle's Wife Katie Fogle Files for Divorce, Requests Court Determine Child Custody Details


    [​IMG]

    Jared Fogle’s wife, Katie, filed for divorce from the former Subway spokesperson on Wednesday, Aug. 19, the same day the U.S. attorney’s office released documents alleging the 37-year-old had solicited underage sex and had received child pornography. According to divorce documents obtained by Us Weekly, the mother of two also listed their date of separation as that same day.

    In the divorce filing, Katie claims their split is due to “an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage” and “requests that the court determine all child related issues, including custody, parenting time, child support, and education expenses as part of the final order,” and “requests a custody order that serves the best interests of the parties’ children.”

    The couple, who married in July 2010, share a son named Brady, born in 2011, and a daughter named Quinn, born in 2013.

    Katie, who is Jared’s second wife, is also requesting that the court “enter appropriate orders to divide and distribute the parties’ marital estate.”

    "Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared. I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage," Katie said in a statement on Wednesday. "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.”

    As previously reported, Jared was charged with one count of travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography. Court documents allege that he traveled between Indiana and New York City to engage in sexual acts with minors as young as 16 between 2010 and 2013, and in a text message conversation stated that “the younger the girl, the better.” Under a plea deal entered on Wednesday, he agreed to serve at least five years in prison and pay a restitution of $1.4 million and register as a sex offender.

    PHOTOS: Star scandals

    Russell C. Taylor, the head of The Jared Foundation, is also allegedly involved in the case. He is accused of sending Jared photos and videos obtained from a hidden camera in his home featuring children as young as 6.

    In July, the FBI raided Jared’s Indianapolis home regarding allegations of child pornography. Following the scandal, Subway also cut ties with the former weight loss champ.

    Subway officially cuts ties with Jared Fogle ahead of expected plea deal

    After previously suspending its relationship with Jared Fogle, Subway has now completely severed ties with its former spokesman just as he is expected to plead guilty to child pornography charges, according to Indiana television station Fox 59.

    We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment.
    — SUBWAY® (@SUBWAY) August 18, 2015

    Jared Fogle’s actions are inexcusable and do not represent our brand’s values. We had already ended our relationship with Jared.
    — SUBWAY® (@SUBWAY) August 19, 2015

    Whether they like it or not, their brand is associated with a pedophile and rapist," said Aaron Allen, a restaurant industry consultant. "Their latest tweet — 'This does not reflect our brand values' — Well, yeah I'd certainly hope not. But what does?"
