SHOCKING: Jared Fogle busted for child porn

Jared Fogle became the face of Subway after the sandwich chain released a commercial in 2000 chronicling his impressive weight loss journey -- one that saw him drop close to 250 pounds thanks to his exercise routine and a simple diet that included Subway sandwiches.

Fast forward to 2015 and the bespectacled pitchman finds his life in shambles. He intends to plead guilty to child pornography charges and to traveling across state lines to pay for sex with minors. The plea deal would see Fogle serve between 5 and 12 1/2 years of jail time.

Not surprisingly, Subway cut all ties with Fogle as soon as his home was raided by authorities. Fogle's wife plans to file for divorce, and the pitchman must adhere to a pornography ban and seek treatment for sexual disorders.

The story is shocking to say the least. Who would have thought this man -- who seemed to project a squeaky clean image -- had so many skeletons in the closet?

Subway did the right thing in wasting no time repudiating Fogle's despicable acts. It's things like this that can quickly devolve into a PR nightmare for a company. I doubt this will have a material impact on Subway's sales.

It goes to show you that we never really know what people around us -- whether our friends, co-workers, or relatives -- do behind closed doors.

What are your thoughts on Fogle's reprehensible actions?
