Jared Fogle, from Subway, has been officially charged with "travel to engage in elicit sexual conduct with minors."
Jared was the target of a federal investigation which included a raid on his home last month, in which several computers were seized ... allegedly containing child porn. The FBI reportedly also found texts bragging of sex with a 16 year old.
According to a complaint, between 2010 and 2013, Fogle traveled between Indiana and NYC to engage in sexual acts with minors. The complaint says Fogle paid for sex.
The complaint says in text messages with one of the 14 minor victims, Fogle said he would accept a 16-year-old girl while stating that "the younger the girl, the better."
The complaint says he asked some of the victims to send him pictures of themselves.
The complaint says the child porn authorities found photos and videos of boys and girls. It's unclear the gender of those with whom he had sex.
Part of the case involves images Fogle received from Russell Taylor, the head of Fogle's foundation. According to the complaint, Taylor sent Fogle photos and videos from hidden cameras in Taylor's house, featuring children as young as approximately 6.
Sources say Jared has plead guilty and has reached a deal where he will spend no more than 12 years behind bars and no less than 5 years. He must also pay restitution of $1.4 million -- $100,000 per victim. And he must register as a sex offender.
Part of Fogle's punishment ... he can't possess obscene materials, he must participate in a sexual disorders program, can't have unsupervised meetings with minors, and his computers will be subject to random checks.
Shortly after the news broke, Jared's wife, Katie Fogle, released a press release that she is shocked and filing for divorce.
"I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage. My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children. Neither I nor my family will have any further comment on the matter."
Subway also tweeted,
"We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment." Previously, Subway had only said Fogle was "suspended."
