Jared Fogle’s Attorney Arguing 15 Year Sentence Is Too Harsh

An attorney for former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle says his client’s more than 15-year prison sentence isn’t justified. He’s arguing that the judge mistakenly believed he was involved in producing child pornography. Fogle’s defense attorney made the argument Friday while asking for a reduced sentence during a hearing before the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The attorney told the court that Fogle didn’t SEE all the child pornography produced by the former director of his anti-obesity foundation. Fogle pleaded guilty last year to possessing child pornography and paying for sex with underage girls. Federal prosecutors maintain that the judge acted within her discretion despite giving Fogle a longer sentence than the 12½ years they recommended as part of the plea.
