New details have been revealed in the case against ex-Subway spokesman Jared Fogle. According to the Associated Press, documents released by the U.S. attorney's office in Indianapolis, Ind., on Wednesday, Aug. 19, accuse Fogle of "engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography."

The documents reportedly allege that the 37-year-old traveled to New York City with the purpose of paying for said sex acts, and that he knowingly received child pornography from Russell C. Taylor, the former head of his charity, The Jared Foundation.

As a result, the AP reports, 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. As previously noted, he has agreed to plead guilty to the charges.

Fogle is due to appear in court late Wednesday morning. Per the AP, prosecutors have already filed an agreement stating that Fogle agrees to pay $1.4 million in restitution, which will be split among 14 victims. He will also "register as a sex offender and undergo treatment for sexual disorders."

The AP further reports that the government will not recommend more than 12.5 years in prison, while Fogle will not ask for less than five years. His attorney had no comment to the AP.

The news comes a little over a month after the FBI raided Fogle's home in Zionsville, Ind. Following the raid, Subway announced that it had cut ties with its former pitchman.
