(INDIANAPOLIS) - A federal judge sentenced former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle to 188 months (more than 15 years) in prison during a hearing Thursday inside a federal courtroom in Indianapolis.

Fogle, who was charged in a child exploitation case, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to receive child pornography and traveling to have sex with minors.

Fogle's attorneys worked out a plea deal with federal prosecutors in August and agreed to plead guilty. Prosecutors had requested a sentence of 12.5 years, while Fogle's attorneys asked for 5 years. Judge Tanya Walton Pratt told Fogle the court had the authority to sentence him to up to 50 years.

Fogle, 38, told the court he understood the terms of his plea agreement and said he was pleading guilty of his own free will. During a tearful statement, Fogle called his own conduct "horrible" and said he went from being a person with good values to one who became deceptive and self-centered.

"I have become dependent on alcohol, pornography and prostitutes," he told the court.

"Not a day will go by where I won't think of (the victims). I hope the restitution will help in their lives," he said.

"It is my intent to learn from these experiences so that I never, ever do these things again," he said. "I take full responsibility for what I've done."

Fogle had no visible reaction when the sentence was announced Thursday afternoon.
