Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is planning to plead guilty to child pornography charges on Wednesday as part of a plea deal with federal prosecutors, multiple media sources are reporting. Fogle’s home was searched by federal and state investigators last month and computers and DVDs were seized in a raid that came on the heels of the arrest of the head of Fogle’s charitable foundation—the Jared Foundation—earlier this year on multiple federal child pornography charges, including seven counts of production of child pornography.

The 37-year-old gained national attention and became Subway’s front man in 2000 after shedding more than 200 pounds on a diet comprised of Subway sandwiches. Following the July raid, Subway terminated its relationship with Fogle. The terms of the plea deal have not yet been disclosed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office; a press conference is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
