INDIANAPOLIS  — Federal prosecutors have copies of audio recordings a Florida woman says she made of former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle talking about sexual encounters he had with children.

U.S. Attorney’s office spokesman Tim Horty said Wednesday federal authorities obtained copies of the recordings that Rochelle Herman-Walrond says she made of her telephone conversations with Fogle.

In the recordings, Herman-Walrond says, “I wanna know what, what may, what turns you on the most? Like the young girls or the young boys?” Fogle answers, “You know, both of them do.”

Then he talks to her about seducing a young victim– a little boy. “Well, if we get ’em segregated out, you know, in this thing where it’s just the three of us, you know. We sort of, you know, we just start talking or whatever and we just start sharing stories and then, you know, and then we get a little closer and a little closer and before you know it, it’s, you know, it just starts to happen.”

Horty says he cannot comment on when and how authorities obtained those recordings or whether they believe they’re authentic.

But he says prosecutors considered those recordings before charging Fogle, who has agreed to plead guilty to child pornography and sex-crime charges.

Herman-Walrond gave copies of the recordings to the Dr. Phil Show, which aired them Thursday and plans to air more on Friday.

Fogle attorney Ron Elberger declined to comment on the recordings and Herman-Walrond’s allegations.
