INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – An Indiana television station is reporting that Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is expected to plead guilty to child-pornography charges.

The report on Fox 59 comes six weeks after authorities seized electronics and other items from Fogle’s home in Zionsville, an affluent Indianapolis suburb.

Citing sources it did not identify, the station said Fogle would enter a plea Wednesday. It also said the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Indianapolis planned to hold a news conference Wednesday

The 37-year-old Fogle became a Subway pitchman more than 15 years ago after shedding more than 200 pounds as a college student, in part by eating the chain’s sandwiches.

Subway suspended its relationship with Fogle after the raid.
