BOONE COUNTY, Ind. — Court documents provide details into the finalized divorce settlement between Jared Fogle and his ex-wife.

According to FOX59, Kathleen Fogle filed for divorce on August 19, just hours after federal prosecutors announced Jared would plead guilty to conspiracy to received child pornography and traveling to have sex with minors.

The former Subway pitchman became the focus of a child exploitation case after federal agents raided his home in early July.

FBI sources said investigators were serving warrants at his home in connection with a child pornography investigation.

Several computers and DVDs were seized from Fogle’s home.

His ex-wife, who reportedly changed her last name back to her maiden name, stated in divorce documents obtained by FOX59 that she wants to be granted sole legal and physical custody of the two children.

Kathleen states that Jared, an admitted pedophile and consumer of child pornography, poses a risk to the children that is “both obvious and unacceptable.”

Court documents also detail Kathleen’s thoughts on Jared’s parenting skills, stating due to his frequent travel, “he did not play much of a role in the day-to-day lives of the children even prior to becoming the focus of a criminal investigation.”

She told the court the last time Jared saw the children was in August.

According to FOX59, the divorce filings also address Jared’s proposal to have permitted regular in-person parenting time for a short time throughout his incarceration.

Kathleen argues Jared’s motion is “entirely self-serving” and would require her and the children to move back to Indianapolis, where she fears the young kids would be subject to scrutiny and harassment.

Jared was sentenced on Nov. 19 to serve more than 15 years in prison.

Kathleen is being awarded $7 million in the settlement.
