An Indiana television station is reporting that Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is expected to plead guilty to child-pornography charges.

The report on Fox 59 comes six weeks after authorities seized electronics and other items from Fogle's home in Zionsville, an affluent Indianapolis suburb.

The 37-year-old Fogle became a Subway pitchman more than 15 years ago after shedding more than 200 pounds as a college student, in part by eating the chain's sandwiches.

Subway suspended its relationship with Fogle after the raid.
