retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Variety reports that Jared Fogle, the longtime Subway spokesman who got the gig when he lost 200 pounds in part by eating the company's products, is expected to accept a plea deal on charges of being in possession of child pornography. The announcement of the deal is expected to come today.

Subway suspended its relationship with Fogle when last month the FBI raided his home and seized several computers; that followed by two months the arrest of the director of Fogle's nonprofit organization of child porn charges. Now, Subway as officially terminated the relationship, saying in a Tweet that "we have already ended our relationship with Jared and have no further comment."
