Earlier in 2015, Fogle’s friend Russell Taylor was arrested as part of a child porn investigation. As a result, Taylor’s role within Fogle’s foundation was terminated. The Indianapolis Star reports that Taylor, 43, was accused of child exploitation and child pornography. According to the feds, after searching Taylor’s home, agents found over 400 videos of child porn.

Following Taylor’s arrest, Fogle released a statement saying “I was shocked to learn of the disturbing allegations against Mr. Taylor. Effective immediately, the Jared Foundation is severing all ties with Mr. Taylor.” On May 6, Taylor unsuccessfully tried to commit suicide. The main aim of the Jared Foundation is to create awareness of childhood obesity.


2. Fogle Has Not Been Arrested

Fox 59 reports that the feds served warrants at Fogle’s home early on the morning of July 7. The station says that raids began at 6:30 a.m. The FBI were accompanied by the Indiana State Police during the incident. WTHR reports that agents could be seen taking electronics from the home. A mobile forensics van is also on scene. Fogle lives at 4500 block of Woods Edge Drive.

Fogle has not been placed under arrest as a result of the raid. The investigation is being led by Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children task force. That agency is described as “The ICAC Task Force was created to help Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies enhance their investigative responses to offenders who use the Internet, online communication systems, or computer technology to sexually exploit children. The Program is funded by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.”

During his time at Indiana University, Fogle used to rent parts of his extensive porn collection to his fellow students for a dollar a video. When Subway opened a store on the first floor of his dorm, he got hooked on the sandwiches while also running his porn operation.


4. He’s Worth $15 Million

In 2013, Fogle’s wealth was put at $15 million. He has a “black card” and gets free food at Subway restaurants. In a New York Daily News feature on him, it says that his role with Subway is the only job he’s ever known. Fogle added “I never expected any of this. I was a business major in college. I thought maybe I’d work for an ad agency or a PR firm.”


5. He’s On His Second Marriage

Fogle married teacher Katie McLaughlin after becoming engaged in January 2010. Their wedding took place in August 2010. The couple have a three-year-old son, and another infant son together. In 2008, Fogle divorced his first wife, Elizabeth, a nurse, and paid her $230,000 in alimony, reports the National Enquirer. That piece said that Fogle had a steady girlfriend at the time of his divorce.

Liberal Hollywood drowns us in sex, plus a fixation on looks and being skinny…gettin’ ’em as young as you can, and more. Then this happens…and they act surprised!! •blink blink• Whatever made him do that?? Total denial of the cause-and-effect that should be obvious to any objective thinker. And they call Christians hypocrites. What a hoot, they are.

Meghan

This is true. Little girls walk around in shorts with their asses hanging out. They get lip injections wear padded bras yoga pants and dance like sluts. And this happens…. Weird I wonder what gave him these ideas? Teenagers themselves

Kim

Yes, because leg skin and a perky chest is an invitation. You’re sexualising young girls for their clothing choices says more about you than it does about them. You’re disgusting.
