9:40 a.m.

Federal prosecutors say longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle has agreed to plead guilty to engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography.

Documents released Wednesday by the U.S. attorney's office in Indianapolis say the 37-year-old will plead guilty to one count of travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography.

The agreement filed by prosecutors ahead of an expected court appearance by Fogle says he agrees to: pay $1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims, each receiving $100,000, register as a sex offender and undergo treatment for sexual disorders.

It says the government will recommend a sentence of more than 12 1/2 in prison. It says Fogle will not ask for a sentence of less than five years in prison.

Fogle attorney Ron Elberger says he has no comment "at this time."

Federal prosecutors have released documents accusing longtime Subway pitchman Jared Fogle of engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography.

Documents released Wednesday by the U.S. attorney's office in Indianapolis say the 37-year-old Fogle faces one count of travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography.

Fogle became the face of Subway for more than 15 years after shedding more than 200 pounds as a college student, in part by eating the chain's sandwiches. Subway says it has ended its relationship with Fogle.

Among the allegations in the document are that Fogle travelled to New York City to pay for sex acts with minors while he stayed in upscale hotels, and that he knowingly received child pornography secretly produced by the then-director of his charitable foundation.

The document is known as an "information." It's typically used to detail charges when a suspect already has agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors.
