Disgraced Ex-Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle appeared in federal court in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Wednesday and agreed to plead guilty to distribution and receipt of child pornography and unlawful sex acts with minors. Hollywood jail consultant Larry Levine said Fogle’s guilty plea will make him a “marked” man behind bars.
Fogle’s home was raided in early July on the suspicion of possession of child pornography, just two months after the executive director of his foundation, Russell Taylor, was arrested in Indianapolis on charges of the same offense.
Since then, more disturbing details have emerged about his paid sex acts with minors, some that were 16 years of age. Moreover, since the allegations, his wife Katie Fogle has filed from divorce, and Subway has suspended all ties with the former spokesperson, who shot to fame when he claimed that he lost 325 pounds just by eating Subway and exercising.
Here’s 9 of the most shocking allegations against Fogle.:
1. “I had two young children at the time, and he talked to me about installing hidden cameras in their rooms and asked me if I would choose which child I would like him to watch,” Rochelle Herman said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.” Herman is the informant who worked with the FBI for years to take down Fogle, including wearing a wire for four years.
2. “He told me that he thought middle school girls were so hot,” Herman also told CNN. “I was in shock … I actually was questioning, ‘Did I really just hear what I think I heard?’ I looked over at my cameraman … and he was just astounded.”
3. “He would tell me the ages he was interested in, boy or girl,” she continued. “He indicated the fact that he has done it before and told me in gross detail what transpired.”
4. Documents detailing the allegations and charges against Fogle say that from 2007, Fogle “repeatedly made travel plans in order to have his business trips coincide with the pursuit of sexual acts.”
5. The court documents state that Fogle received multiple images of minors engaged in sex acts from Taylor and knew that those depicted were under 18. Taylor filmed the minors without their knowledge using a series of hidden cameras in his home. Some of those depicted were reportedly as young as six years old.
6. The court documents also said that after the first meeting with a 16-year-old girl at the New York Plaza hotel, with whom he had sexual relations multiple times after, he texted the girl and offered to pay her a fee if she could find him another underage girl. During these text messages, Fogle “stated that he would accept a 16-year-old girl, while stating that the younger the girl, the better,” the document said.
7. According to the Daily Beast, police have said that they also found messages on Fogle’s cellphones showing he offered prostitutes in various states, such as Richmond, Virginia, Kansas City, Missouri and Las Vegas a finder’s fee to set up him with minors.
8. However, he would need to have sex with these prostitutes first, to make sure that they weren’t government officials or police officers, ABC News reported.
9. Fogle allegedly told a female franchisee to advertise herself on Craigslist for sex with men — if he could watch, he would pay her $500.
The woman franchisee wrote, “Is this the same website you found that 16 year old you that you f—-d? I still can’t believe you only paid $100 for her.”
“It was amazing!!!!” Fogle responded.
“What part of her ad made you think she was selling sex?” the woman asked.
“U will have to read them to see,” Fogle said.
