Reports: Subway Pitchman to Admit to Child-Porn Charges

Former Subway sandwich chain pitchman Jared Fogle is expected to plead guilty to charges of possessing child pornography, Indianapolis TV station Fox59 reported on Tuesday.

Fogle will accept a plea deal, the station reported, citing unidentified sources. The U.S. Attorney’s Office will hold a news conference on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the deal and charges against Fogle, the station said.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Indianapolis declined to comment and Fogle’s attorney could not immediately be reached. A spokeswoman for the FBI in Indianapolis also declined to comment.

Later on Tuesday, privately held Subway said on Twitter: “We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment.”
