Subway Guy Jared Fogle Pays $1 Million to Victims

Jared Fogle, the former Subway spokesman, has paid $1 million in restitution to his victims.

Fogle, known as “The Subway Guy,” pleaded guilty in August to charges of distributing and receiving pornography, and having sex with minors.

Also as part of his plea deal, Fogle, who is Jewish, will serve between five and 12-and-a-half years in federal prison.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven DeBrota announced on Thursday in Indianapolis that Fogle had paid restitution of $100, 000 each to 10 of his victims. Payments to four other victims are expected before a sentencing hearing scheduled for Nov. 19.

Fogle traveled to New York and had sex with at least two minors, ages 16 and 17, between 2010 and 2013, according to the Indianapolis Star. He also solicited acquaintances — from child victims to adult prostitutes — to put him in contact with other minors so he could have sex with them.

Fogle became Subway’s spokesperson in 2000, after dropping nearly 250 pounds on a regimen of eating two Subway sandwiches a day. He founded a nonprofit organization in 2004, the Jared Foundation, to combat childhood obesity.

Subway cut ties with Fogle in July after police investigators raided his Indiana home.
