Jared Fogle's attorneys face deadline in appeal of sentence

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Attorneys for former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle are facing a deadline in his appeal of the more than 15-year prison sentence he received for possessing child pornography and paying for sex with underage girls.

They must file court documents detailing the grounds for his appeal by Friday.

The sentence handed down by a federal judge was longer than the maximum term prosecutors agreed to pursue as part of his plea deal.

Fogle pleaded guilty to one count each of distributing and receiving child porn and traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a child.
