Jared Fogle would very much like out of prison please. TMZ reports the former Subway pitchman currently serving a 15-year sentence for child pornography and child prostitution is attempting to free himself via self-written legal documents that are "convoluted for sure." In the documents, Fogle claims the judge who accepted his guilty plea didn't have jurisdiction to hear the case. He also claims he shouldn't have been charged with conspiracy—because it doesn't apply to his crime of distributing child pornography—and shouldn't have been allowed to plead guilty to traveling in interstate commerce to have sex with minors—because he never left the state to do so. Fogle has served just over two years of his sentence. (A recent attempt to represent himself to gain his freedom didn't go so well, with a judge in November calling his claims "frivolous.")
