In conversations stretching back ten years, Fogle had confided in Herman-Walrond about his sexual fantasies and proclivities, telling her in graphic detail "what he wanted to do, what he was doing". Extremely concerned by what Fogle had told her, Herman-Walrond informed authorities who enlisted her in recording future conversations with Fogle.

Herman-Walrond said that she was at first concerned about the length of time it took to arrest Fogle, saying her "biggest question was why was it taking so long". She was told by the FBI and US Attorney's office that a case of that size would take a long time to put together.

Herman-Walrond was also not surprised she was not the only person Fogle had confided in after it was revealed in court that a number of informants had been helping the FBI build their case. She speculated that "he had something that was compelling him inside that wanted to reveal to what he was doing."
