Meet The Woman Who Wore A Wire To Help Catch Jared Fogle

Jared Fogle is the O.J. Simpson of 2015. He was a “beloved” celebrity but quickly became a monster due to his interest in underage girls and is now the most talked about crime case in recent history. But how did his Subway empire crumble so quickly, especially since this had been going on since 2007? Apparently with the help of a woman named Rochelle Herman-Walrond, the FBI had enough cause to investigate Jared, raid his home and find enough evidence to get him to confess to 14 counts of having sex with a minor, not to mention the child porn he apparently produced.

Rochelle Herman-Walrond is a Florida journalist who became an acquaintance of Fogle almost 10 years ago when Fogle nonchalantly admitted to being attracted to middle school girls. These conversations were enough to prompt Walrond to inform the police, which is when she became an informant for them, including wearing a wire at times. But it wasn’t just girls he was interested in apparently.

“He would tell me the ages he was interested in, boy or girl. He indicated the fact that he has done it before and told me in gross detail what transpired.”

Here’s the snippet from her interview with ABC News.

Fogle’s attorney Jeremy Margolis said that Jared “Will fully and completely acknowledge his responsibility for his wrongdoing.” Apparently witnesses also in Georgia and Washington recorded conversations with Jared Fogle about his interest in having sex with minors. It’s almost as if he was proud of the fact, telling anyone that would listen.

Fogle had about a 15 minute hearing yesterday but no official decision by the judge was made about his guilt or innocence, leaving Fogle under house arrest. A hearing at a later date will be held where he’s facing between 5 and 12 1/2 years in prison.
