Jared Fogle was sentenced to 15 years and 8 months in prison today, and during the court proceedings, his attorney argued that his Subway sandwich diet was a mitigating factor in his pedophilia. John Bradford, an "expert witness," was called in by Fogle's attorney, Jeremy Margolis, to argue that Jared treating his food addiction via Subway sandwiches led to a sex addiction developing in its place. Bradford is a psychiatry professor at the University of Ottowa, and sounds like someone you really wouldn't want to get your psychiatry training from.

He also characterized Fogle's actions as "mild pedophilia," which prosecutors quickly pointed out is literally not a thing.
