(CNN)Jared Fogle, famed pitchman for the Subway restaurant chain, has some problems. On Tuesday, law enforcement investigators confiscated electronics from Fogle’s property in Zionsville, Indiana, while helicopters hovered overhead.
The seizure was very likely part of an investigation into the case of Russell Taylor, who had been charged two months ago with breaking federal child pornography laws. At the time of his May 6 arrest, Taylor served as the executive director of The Jared Foundation, Fogle’s outreach program.
Fogel is not charged with anything, and federal authorities say he is not under investigation. But if any of the seized devices contain child pornography, and if he had access to it, Fogle may soon face charges as well.
Whatever the meaning of the confiscations from Fogle’s property, the incident offers a good teachable moment on child pornography crime.
