Jared Fogle will reportedly plead guilty to possession of child pornography, according to multiple news sites. This comes six weeks after federal authorities raided the former Subway spokesperson’s Zionsville, Ind., home on July 7, and several computers were taken.

Local station Fox59 reports that the U.S. Attorney’s Office will hold a press conference about the plea deal and charges against Fogle on Wednesday afternoon.

The raid on Fogle’s home came after Russell Taylor, the former executive director of Fogle’s Jared Foundation, was arrested and sentenced to jail for possessing and producing child pornography.

Fogle, 37, found fame as the sandwich chain’s spokesperson after losing nearly 250 pounds in 2000 by walking and eating at Subway. Following news of the raid at his home, the company told Us Weekly that it was “shocked,” and parted ways with Fogle that same day.

Subway reiterated its distance from Fogle on Tuesday.

On July 8, the Syfy network cut Fogle’s cameo in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! before the TV movie aired.

Previously, Fogle was linked to an adult video rental service during his days at Indiana University. That incident came to light in 2007.
