U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt sentenced Fogle on Thursday after he pleaded guilty to one count each of travelling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and distribution and receipt of child pornography.
    
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.

Fogle pleaded guilty to one count each of travelling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and distribution and receipt of child pornography.

A psychiatrist who analyzed Jared Fogle says he concluded that the former Subway pitchman suffers from hypersexuality, mild pedophilia, and alcohol abuse and dependency.
    
John Bradford, a professor at the University of Ottawa in Canada, testified by phone Thursday at Fogle's sentencing hearing that Fogle appears to have had a compulsive eating disorder and that he began to develop hypersexuality shortly after losing weight.
    
Bradford says Fogle told him he had sex with minors age 16 and 17 and had "a fairly extensive history" of using prostitutes. He says Fogle told him he masturbated to fantasies about prepubescent girls, but that there's no evidence he acted on them.
