Fogle agreed to the plea deal in August after authorities raided his suburban Indianapolis home in July.

Prosecutors sought a 12½-year sentence, while Fogle’s attorneys sought 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.
