FBI informant Rochelle Herman sat down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Thursday to discuss exactly what made her contact the authorities regarding Jared Fogle’s preference for underaged girls. The previously unidentified woman first made contact with the authorities after meeting Fogle at a school in the Sarasota, Florida area in 2007 where Fogle was making an appearance in conjunction with The American Heart Association. Herman was working as a local news reporter and covering the charity event when Fogle made some unsettling remarks to her.

He told me that he thought middle school girls were so hot,” said Herman. “I was in shock, I actually was questioning, ‘Did I really just hear what I think I heard?’ I looked over at my cameraman and he was just astounded.”

The fact that Fogle trusted this new acquaintance enough to say this, and on school grounds no less, is one thing. But saying it in front of a cameraman is just ludicrous.

This was enough to drive Herman to contact the authorities, who had her wear a wire and keep contact with Fogle over the years. At one point, Fogle felt comfortable enough talking to Herman that he decided to fill her in on his designs on her own children.

“I had two young children at the time,” said Herman. “And he talked to me about installing hidden cameras in their rooms and asked me if I would choose which child I would like him to watch.”

Obviously, she had to mask her disgust in order to play along and gather evidence, but that was understandably tough. However, it did eventually lead to an FBI raid on Fogle’s house after Russell Taylor, the director of his Jared Foundation charity went down for producing and distributing child porn.

Fogle is expected to take a plea deal that will come with a prison sentence anywhere from between five to 12 years.
