INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The family of former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle released a statement Wednesday afternoon.
Federal court documents allege that Fogle obtained child pornography from a colleague and traveled out of state to pay for sex with minors under the age of 18.
Here is the full statement from the family:
Our family is shocked and profoundly disappointed in Jared’s abhorrent criminal behavior and we are very concerned for the well being of those affected by his conduct. At the same time, we are gratified that Jared is accepting responsibility for what he has done by agreeing to plea guilty to the charges filed today and by volunteering to make restitution to the victims. We are also gratified that he is seeking medical treatment. We hope that he will become healthy again and are confident that after he serves his sentence, he will continue to make amends. We look forward to the day that he rejoins our family and society.
We will not be granting any media interviews. Our plan is to comfort each other and heal and we ask that the media respect our family’s privacy during this very difficult time.
