Subway's pitchman Jared Fogle is a suspect in a Federal child pornography
investigation. FBI agents and Indiana State Police raided Fogle's
house in Zionsville, Ind., and have removed electronics from the property.
FBI special agent Wendy Osborne said the FBI was conducting an investigation.
Investigators from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service are also on the
scene and assisting with the investigation. Subway said it believes this
"is related to a prior investigation" of a former employee of
the Jared Foundation, an organization founded by Fogle to raise awareness
about childhood obesity. Russell Taylor was arrested in May on child pornography
charges. A complaint filed in Taylor's case lists seven counts related
to the production of child pornography, as well as another charge for
possession of child pornography.
If charged and convicted of possession and distribution of
child pornography, under the Federal law Fogle could be facing 30 years to life in prison
depending on the nature of the charges.
