Subway Pitchman Jared Fogle's Text Messages Subpoenaed by FBI (Report)
In texts sent to a former female Subway franchisee, Fogle reportedly wrote that he had sex with a 16-year-old girl and it was "amazing!!!!"
An affidavit containing texts between Subway pitchman Jared Fogle and a former female Subway franchisee has been subpoenaed by the FBI, according to Business Insider.
In the alleged text messages, Fogle asked the former franchisee, whom he was reportedly in a sexual relationship with in 2008, to advertise herself on Craigslist to have sex with other men and inquired if he could pay her up to $500 per act to watch.
A lawyer for the woman reportedly said that the FBI recently subpoenaed his office for the text message conversations. The former franchisee's attorney said the messages were recorded in 2008 by a court reporter and spanned from January 2008 to June 2008.
In May 2008, Business Insider reports that the affidavit reads that Fogle asked the woman to set up a meeting with her cousin, who was underage at the time, according to the former franchisee's attorney.
The age of consent in Indiana is 16.
"When can we find a time for me to talk to your cousin?" Fogle asked May 1, 2008. "Any more news with your cousin?" he inquired a day later. "Tell me what u think about when u think of the three of us all together???"
The latest allegation about Jared Fogle, if true, is appalling. As previously stated, we have suspended our relationship with Jared.— SUBWAY® (@SUBWAY) August 1, 2015
