Jared Fogle, the former spokesperson for Subway, is expected to plead guilty to possession of child porn in a plea deal it is believed he will accept on Wednesday, August 19.

The U.S. Attorney's Office will hold a press conference on Wednesday to outline both the charges against Jared Fogle and the terms of the plea deal.

Ron Elberger is the attorney representing Jared Fogle. He had no comment on the matter when approached by an Indianapolis Fox News station. He directed the media to Wednesday's press conference, saying they would learn everything about the situation at that time.

Federal agents raided Jared Fogle's Indiana home in early July. During the raid, computers and DVDs were removed from the home.

Jared Fogle gained national attention when he lost a significant amount of weight as a college freshman. He attributed his weight loss to eating Subway sandwiches. Subway ended their relationship with Fogle after the raid on his home in July.

When asked to comment on the most recent developments in the Jared Fogle case, a rep for Subway had little to say.

“We have already ended our relationship with Jared and have no further comment.”

Possession of child pornography is a serious crime, punishable by prison time. It is uncertain how much time Jared Fogle could spend incarcerated as a result of his crimes.

It will be interested to learn via Wednesday's press conference exactly what the deal is with the former Subway spokesperson.
