INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The wife of former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle released a statement to the media the same day Fogle was expected to plead guilty to child porn charges.

Katie Fogle’s statement said she plans to seek a divorce:

“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. 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.”

Wednesday afternoon, the Fogle family released the following statement to WISH TV:

Our family is shocked and profoundly disappointed in Jared’s abhorrent criminal behavior and we are very concerned for the well being of those affected by his conduct. At the same time, we are gratified that Jared is accepting responsibility for what he has done by agreeing to plea guilty to the charges filed today and by volunteering to make restitution to the victims. We are also gratified that he is seeking medical treatment. We hope that he will become healthy again and are confident that after he serves his sentence, he will continue to make amends. We look forward to the day that he rejoins our family and society.

We will not be granting any media interviews. Our plan is to comfort each other and heal and we ask that the media respect our family’s privacy during this very difficult time.
