INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is expected to enter a plea deal with the U.S. Attorney's Office in connection to an ongoing child pornography investigation.

The terms of the deal have not been released, and the U.S. Attorney's Office does not comment on ongoing investigations. 
 
Information about specific criminal charges has not been released, but a guilty plea could include 8 years behind bars.
 
Fogle could make an appearance in federal court as early as Wednesday morning.

Federal, state and local investigators -- including the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force -- descended on Fogle's Zionsville home in July.

The raid was part of a continuing probe of the indictment and arrest of former Jared Foundation president Russell Taylor.
 
Taylor lost his job after he was arrested in May. Investigators said they found hidden cameras and 400 videos of child pornography on computers in his home.

Shortly after the raid, Subway suspended its relationship with Fogle.

Earlier this month, the FBI subpoenaed text messages from Fogle's phone.
