Jared Fogle's Wife Files for Divorce
By: James West, Xiro Xone News August 20, 2015
The wife of former spokesman Subway Jared Fogle said Wednesday that she's seeking a divorce as her husband faces charges alleging that he engaged in sex acts with underage girls and traded in child pornography.
While Jared Fogle was in federal court in Indianapolis to hear the charges against him, his wife, Katie Fogle, released a statement through her attorney expressing disgust at her husband's actions.
Subway's New Challenge Will Be Erasing Jared Fogle From Its Brand. Fogle first appeared in a Subway ad in 2000 after losing 245 pounds on his famous Subway diet in 1998, he created his nonprofit Jared Foundation to raise awareness about childhood obesity in 2004.
"Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared," she said. "I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage. My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children."
Katie Fogle said it would be her only public statement about the matter and she asked for privacy for her family.
Fogle is expected to plead guilty on a later date to one count each of traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and the distribution and receipt of child pornography.
As part of his plea deal, prosecutors said they would not seek a sentence of more than 12½ years in prison and Fogle agreed to push for a sentence of at least five years behind bars. He would also pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 victims — $100,000 each — and register as a sex offender.
