Subway slammed its former spokesman Jared Fogle on Wednesday, hours after he was charged with possessing child pornography and engaging in sex acts with minors.

As Gossip Cop reported, Fogle appeared in an Indiana court on Wednesday, more than a month after his home was raided by the FBI. He entered a plea of not guilty as a formality, and will be changing it to a guilty plea at the next hearing. At that point, assuming the judge signs off, he will be sentenced to between five and 12 years in prison as part of a plea deal.

Subway initially announced in July that it was suspending its relationship with Fogle. Then, after allegations emerged earlier this month about Fogle paying for sex with a 16-year-old, the restaurant chain said in a tweeted statement, “The latest allegation about Jared Fogle, if true, is appalling. As previously stated, we have suspended our relationship with Jared.”

And then Tuesday, after news of the plea deal broke, Subway posted on its social media pages, “We no longer have a relationship with Jared and have no further comment.” Now, however, the company has shared another message in the wake of the specific allegations against Fogle becoming public.

“Jared Fogle’s actions are inexcusable and do not represent our brand’s values. We had already ended our relationship with Jared,” says Subway. For his part, Fogle hasn’t commented on the end of the business relationship, nor on the case itself.

As Gossip Cop noted earlier, Fogle’s attorney said outside court that he will be taking full “responsibility” for his “wrongdoing.” His wife Katie McLaughlin, with whom he has two kids, has announced she plans on filing for divorce. We’ll continue to have updates.
