INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Federal prosecutors have released documents accusing longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle of engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography.
Documents released Wednesday by the U.S. attorney's office in Indianapolis say the 37-year-old 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.
Fogle became the face of Subway for more than 15 years after shedding more than 200 pounds as a college student, in part by eating the chain's sandwiches. Subway says it has ended its relationship with Fogle.
Among the allegations in the document are that Fogle traveled to New York City to pay for sex acts with minors while he stayed in upscale hotels, and that he knowingly received child pornography secretly produced by the then-director of his charitable foundation.
The document is known as an "information." It's typically used to detail charges when a suspect already has agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors.
