Ex-Subway pitchman to be sentenced for sex crimes
INDIANAPOLIS- Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle is set to learn how much time he'll spend in prison on child porn and sex-crime charges.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt is scheduled to sentence Fogle Thursday after accepting his plea to one count each of travelling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and distribution and receipt of child pornography.
Fogle agreed in August to plead guilty following a July raid of his suburban Indianapolis home. The case destroyed his Subway career.
Prosecutors want a 12 ½-year sentence, while Fogle's attorneys asked for five years.
The 38-year-old Fogle admitted paying for sex with girls as young as 16 and receiving child pornography produced by his charitable foundation's former director.
He agreed to pay his 14 victims $100,000 each in restitution.
