Not sticking around. Katie Fogle, the wife of former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle, is filing for divorce amid her husband’s ongoing child pornography scandal

"Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared. I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage," Katie said in a statement. "My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children. Neither I nor my family will have any further comment on the matter. I appreciate respect for my family's privacy during this difficult time." 

The couple share two children. 

On Wednesday, Aug. 19, documents were released by the U.S. attorney’s office in Indianapolis, Ind., and reported by the AP, that accuse Jared of “engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography.” 

He faces one count of traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography. As previously reported, he has agreed to plead guilty to the charges. 

The AP reports that the government will not recommend more than 12.5 years in prison, while Jared will not ask for less than five years.
