Tweets Show Fogle Promoted Subway After Investigation Began

Fogle has agreed to plead guilty to allegations that he paid for sex acts with minors and received child pornography that he knew had been secretly produced by the former director of his charitable foundation, federal prosecutors said in court documents released Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2015.

Pictures posted to Jared Fogle’s official Twitter account show him promoting Subway restaurants a day after federal investigators say he paid for sex with a 17-year-old girl.

Yesterday Fogle pleaded guilty to  charges of child pornography and having sex with minors. He faces up to 12 years in prison.

A series of three photos, all dated January 12, 2013, show Fogle posing in Times Square and appearing on a CBS sports program in front of a large table of Subway sandwiches.

The caption of one of the photos reads: “Always a nervous wreck… hope I did ok! Anybody see it??”

The day before those photos were posted, federal prosecutors allege Fogle had paid for sex with a 17-year-old girl at the New York City Ritz Carlton Hotel.

The day after that encounter, federal prosecutors say Fogle texted the 17-year-old girl, offering to pay her a fee if she could find him a “young minor to engage in commercial sex acts with him.”

Evidence linking Fogle to these alleged encounters were uncovered by investigators during a July raid on his Zionsville home, prosecutors said.

On Wednesday, Subway released this statement:

Jared Fogle’s actions are inexcusable and do not represent our brand’s values. We had already ended our relationship with Jared.”
