Federal prosecutors say longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle has agreed to plead guilty to engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography.

Documents released Wednesday by the U.S. attorney’s office in Indianapolis say the 37-year-old will plead guilty to one count of travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography.

COURT DOCUMENT: The allegations against Jared Fogle 

The agreement filed by prosecutors ahead of an expected court appearance by Fogle says he agrees to: pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims, each receiving $100,000, register as a sex offender and undergo treatment for sexual disorders.

It says the government will not recommend a sentence of more than 12½ years in prison, while Fogle will not ask for a sentence of less than five years in prison.

Fogle attorney Ron Elberger says he has no comment “at this time.” A spokesman says attorneys for ex-Subway pitchman Jared Fogle will give a statement outside the federal courthouse after Fogle appears in court on charges of engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography.

COURT DOCUMENT: The petition to plea

Dennis Culloton, a spokesman for Fogle attorney Jeremy Margolis, said Fogle will appear with his attorneys but will not speak during that appearance. Culloton also says the Fogle family will release a statement after the hearing.

Fogle became the face of Subway for more than 15 years after shedding more than 200 pounds as a college student, in part by eating the chain’s sandwiches. Subway says it has ended its relationship with Fogle.

Among the allegations in the document are that Fogle traveled to New York City to pay for sex acts with minors while he stayed in upscale hotels, and that he knowingly received child pornography secretly produced by the then-director of his charitable foundation.

The document is known as an “information.” It’s typically used to detail charges when a suspect already has agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors.
