Disgraced former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is "profoundly sorry" and will ask for leniency when he is sentenced next week on child pornography and sex crime charges, his attorneys said in a filing Friday, NBC News reported.
Attorneys for Fogle want the federal judge in Indianapolis to give him a five-year prison term — less than the 12 years and seven months that federal prosecutors are seeking. In addition, the government wants the 38-year-old father of two to get a lifetime of supervision following his release.
Fogle agreed in August to plead guilty to possession of child pornography and traveling to pay for sex with minors — a stunning admission that brought disgrace to the sandwich pitchman.
Subway severed its relationship with Fogle after the allegations surfaced.
