INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle is expected to plead guilty to possession of child pornography charges.

According to Fox 59, Fogle will accept a plea deal.

Several hours later, the U.S. Attorney’s Office will host a news conference detailing the deal and charges.

Federal investigators raided Fogle’s home early on July 7 in connection with a child pornography investigation.

Earlier this year, Russell Taylor, the former director of the Jared Foundation started by Fogle, was arrested in a child pornography case.

He was accused of possessing and producing child pornography.

Investigators said a search of Taylor’s home turned up more than 500 videos with images of child pornography.

In May, Taylor unsuccessfully tried to kill himself while in jail.

Fogle said the foundation severed all ties with Taylor following the arrest.

His lawyer, Rob Elberger, said he didn’t know the warrant had been issued prior to the raid.

He released the following statement:

“Jared has been cooperating with law enforcement and its investigation of certain unspecified activities and looks forward to its conclusion. Jared has not been arrested, detained or charged with anything.”

Fogle gained national fame after attributing massive weight loss to eating Subway sandwiches.

He was a freshman at Indiana University at the time.

He later became a visible presence in Subway ad campaigns, pitching the restaurant’s sandwiches and touting their health benefits.
