Jared Fogle allegedly paid a 16-year-old girl $100 to have sex with him according to an affidavit. According to USA Today, the information was presented in some text messages allegedly sent from Jared Fogle to a former Subway franchisee. While Fogle is being investigated on possible pornography charges, the FBI has not confirmed whether or not the aforementioned incident is currently an open case.
“The FBI has no new information to release regarding this matter. The only thing we confirmed several weeks ago was that the FBI was conducting investigative activity in the Zionsville, Indiana, area,” said special agent and spokeswoman for the Indianapolis office for the FBI, Wendy Osborne.
Last month, Jared Fogle was detained outside of his home in Indiana while police raided his house and searched his belongings. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, various electronics were taken out of Fogle home, which he shares with his wife and their kids.
According to Pop Dust, Fogle seemed to think he was out of the woods after he wasn’t arrested following the probe, but this new subpoena could be seriously bad news.
“In the [text] messages, Fogle repeatedly asks the woman to advertise herself on Craigslist for sex with other men and asks if he can watch the sexual acts. He tells her she can make about $500 for each sexual encounter. The incriminating messages span from January 2008 to June 2008, and the attorney says they were recorded from the woman’s phone by a court reporter in 2008 and witnessed and verified by a notary-public official.”
It is important to not that the age of consent in the state of Indiana is 16; prostitution, of course, is illegal.
On Aug. 1, Subway announced their decision to suspend Fogle in light of the accusations against him.
“About the most recent news story on Jared Fogle, this allegation, if true, is appalling and is contrary to the values of our brand. As previously stated, we have suspended our relationship with Jared,” read a message on Subway’s Facebook page.
Jared Fogle is walking a tightrope at this point. As many people might remember, Russell Taylor, the former executive director of Fogle Foundation, was arrested just two months ago on child pornography charges. The FBI raided his home back in April and found over 400 videos of child pornography. It is unknown if the FBI saw some kind of connection between Fogle and Taylor or if the two men had been sharing any of this stuff together.
