INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is asking for the minimum sentence after he was convicted of child pornography and paying to have sex with minors earlier this year.
Fogle’s attorneys are asking the court to take his medical condition into account. According to court documents, shortly after police raided Fogle’s Zionsville home in July, he sought help and met with forensic psychiatrist John Bradford.
Bradford examined Fogle and court documents say he determined Fogle suffers from hyper sexuality and alcohol abuse. Fogle has been attending counseling and group meetings to try and address the issues.
Court documents say Fogle doesn’t think his medical issues excuse his behavior, but he hopes the court will take them into consideration when he’s sentenced Thursday.
Fogle is asking for the minimum sentence of five years, but federal prosecutors are requesting the maximum sentence of 12.5 years.
