Jared Fogle has already been dumped by Subway over child pornography charges, and now his wife is following suit.
Katie Fogle announced on Wednesday that she is “in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage” to the former Subway spokesman, who has accepted a deal with prosecutors to plead guilty to receiving and distributing child pornography, as well as engaging in an unlawful sex act with a minor.
Katie and Jared have two children, who she said are her main concern after Jared admitted to “distributing and receiving visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct” and traveling “in interstate commerce to engage in unlawful commercial sexual acts with minors, and attempted to do so.”
“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 issued to the media through her attorney. “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.”
Federal agents raided Jared’s home in July, where they seized several computers and DVDs.
Subway posted a statement on Twitter on Tuesday distancing itself from Fogle. “We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment,” the sandwich company said.
According to federal court documents obtained by TheWrap, Fogle has agreed to a sentence of no less than five years in prison, while the government will not seek a sentence longer than 12 and a half years. Fogle will also undergo treatment for sexual disorders upon his release and will register as a sex offender.
Fogle also agreed to pay $100,000 to each of his 14 victims, for a total of $1.4 million. That number may increase should more victims be discovered through the course of the investigation.
