The second part of the sentence after comma says that the judges did not show pity for the inmate and he was after all sent to the prison.In the first part it is said that the inmate asked something to the probation panel with a lot of self abasement that it was humiliating. We need a word like begged which implies that the inmate begged the panel to be set free. The only synonyms that make sense are beseeched and supplicated- meaning ask for something earnestly.
