Jared Fogle's Wife, Katie Fogle, Is Divorcing The Disgraced Ex-Subway Spokesperson
Katie Fogle didn't waste any time. An hour after disgraced former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle appeared in court for charges of having sex with a minor and owning and distributing child pornography, his wife announced that she's filing for divorce from him.
"Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared. I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage," Katie Fogle — formerly Katie McLaughlin — said in a statement. "My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children. Neither I nor my family will have any further comment on the matter. I appreciate respect for my family’s privacy during this difficult time."
The couple have two children together. On Wednesday, documents released by the U.S. Attorney's office revealed that Fogle has accepted a plea deal that involves him pleading guilty to charges of traveling to engage in sex with a minor, as well as receiving and distributing child pornography. Subway immediately and explicitly cut ties with Fogle — their 15-year partnership had been suspended since the FBI raided Fogle's house as part of a child pornography investigation in July. Prosecutors are pushing for Fogle to spend at least 12 years in prison. Fogle has said he'll concede to at least five years.
