Former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is going to plead guilty to engaging in illicit sexual conduct with minors and receiving child pornography, The Associated Press (AP) reports.
Documents filed in federal court Wednesday show that as early as March 2011, Fogle regularly received child porn from Russell Taylor, the former head of the Fogle's foundation. Taylor used hidden cameras placed in clock radios to film 12 separate minor victims, the documents say. And as recently as April 29, 2015, Fogle, 37, also received footage of minors engaging in sex acts; some of the victims were as young as 13-14 years old.
Fogle also received porn from abroad featuring minors as young as six.
Prosecutors also accuse Fogle of soliciting and traveling to have sex with minors as early as 2007. In November 2012, Fogle paid a minor to have sex with him at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Afterward, he asked if the victim could connect him with other girls, "the younger the girl, the better."
He had sex with the same victim a couple months later, this time at the Ritz in downtown New York:
His travels apparently coincided with business trips, the prosecutors allege.
Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of more than 12 years in prison, the AP says, along with $1.4 million in restitution to 14 victims. Fogle would also have to register as a sex offender "and undergo treatment for sexual disorders."
Fogle's wife Katie, with whom he has two children, released a statement Wednesday morning:
Fogle attorney Ron Elberger told the AP he had no comment "at this time."
Fogle's home was raided on July 7 on suspicion of child pornography charges. Previously, Taylor was arrested and charged with child exploitation, possession of child pornography, and voyeurism.
