INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle faced a judge Wednesday on charges of obtaining child pornography and traveling out of state for sex with minors.

Court documents released to WISH-TV layout the details behind the charges.

Twitter users began tweeting their shock over the news.

After the court documents were released detailing the allegations against Fogle many said the jail time he would get was not enough. Others said the news of Fogle would seriously affect others.

Others said they never expected Fogle would do something like this.

On Tuesday evening Subway responded to the rumors that its former spokesman would make a plea deal.

The company suspended its relationship with Fogle in July following the raid on his home. The raid came just months after former co-worker Russell Taylor was arrested for child porn.

Taylor, 43, was arrested on three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of child exploitation, and three counts of voyeurism. Taylor was the former head of Fogle’s charitable foundation. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
