Reports have indicated that Jared Fogle, ex Subway spokesman, is pleading guilty to charges of child pornography and having sex with a minor. The details of all his pornographic and sexual exploits are detailed in a court document from the United States District Court Southern District Of Indiana Indianapolis Division released by Radar Online. Moreover, Assistant United States Steven DeBrota has stated that all allegations are true.

Russell Taylor was Fogle’s source for child porn

The document begins by detailing the activities of Russell Taylor who used to work for Fogle’s charitable foundation and has now been named the former spokesman’s co-conspirator.

Taylor had gone with Fogle on several business trips throughout the United States as well as other countries. They were said to be very close friends and had also communicated regularly through text messages and emails.

Between March 2011 and January 30, 2015, Taylor had engaged in “sexually explicit conduct” with as much as 12 minors, the youngest of which was around 13 to 14 years old. Taylor had taken photos and videos and boys and girls while they were in the shower or changing their clothes. Afterwards, he shared these images and videos to other people, including Fogle.

Moreover, Taylor had also obtained child pornography featuring children as young as 6 years old online. He, then, supplied them to Fogle. At the same time, Taylor had also sent Fogle these photos and videos via text messages and even stored them on a thumb drive. Meanwhile, Fogle also distributed the said materials.

Fogle traveled for sex with minors

At the same time, Fogle engaged in sexual activities with minors. Between 2010 and February 2013, he traveled frequently from Indiana to New York City in order to do so.

Around November 3, 2012, a girl known as Minor Victim 13 said that she had gone to meet with Fogle at the Plaza Hotel to have sex for money. She was 17 years old at the time.

The following day, Fogle had sent the girl a number of text messages, asking for her assistance in finding other underage girls he can have sex with. Fogle offered to pay her a fee for finding other minors and even stated that younger would be better.

The said girl sent nude photos of minors to Fogle around December 2012 and even attached one of her own. Fogle acknowledged and even, expressed his approval of the images. The following year, Fogle and the girl met again for sex at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Minor Victim 13 turned 18 in 2013.

Fogle readily solicited for sex from escorts and other adult women

From June 2011 to around 2013, Fogle also approached several escorts to solicit for minors he can do “commercial sex acts with.” Moreover, Fogle also made sure that his business trips coincided with sexual plans. And to make sure that he was not going to get caught up in an undercover operation by the police, Fogle also had sexual relationships with the escorts.

Between 2007 and 2013, Fogle had also approached a number of adult women who were not escorts and told them he was looking for minors to have sex with. He had also admitted to some of these women that he had already done so previously.

In the wake of this controversy, Fogle’s wife, Katie had told NBC Chicago that she is seeking for divorce from her husband. She said, ” 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. My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children.”

Meanwhile, Fogle’s family had said that they are “shocked and disappointed” by Jared’s behavior, but they are also grateful that his is taking responsibility. The family has also reportedly express concern for the well-being of all of his victims.
