It’s official, Subway has permanently ended its relationship with former spokesman Jared Fogle.
We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment.

And for that matter, his wife is also ending their relationship.

The announcement was made shortly after it was announced that Fogle would be entering a plea bargain for charges of distributing and receiving child pornography of 12 minors as well as travelling to engage in illicit sexual contact with 2 minors. It is mentioned in the plea bargain that not all victims have been identified.

The plea agreement calls for $100,000 to be paid to each minor for counseling and 5-12 years in prison. Fogle will seek treatment for sexual disorders and be put on the sex offender registry as well. However, many people do not consider this to be adequate punishment.
5 to 12 yrs is not enough for ANYONE who violates children! Seems they had enough to not do plea. He needs the max of 30yrs! #JaredFogle

You plea bargain with a shoplifter, not a child predator! #JaredFogle

The U.S. attorney’s office says that Fogle was not given preferential treatment.

In any case, it looks like Subway is in the market for a new spokesperson.
