On Thursday, the Daily Mail reported former Subway dieter and spokesperson, Jared Fogle, filed a lawsuit from behind bars against one of his victim’s parents.
Fogle, who is already serving a 15+ year sentence in Colorado, was found guilty of having illicit sexual conduct with a minor and receiving child pornography. He was also ordered to pay $1 million each to his 14 victims.
Prosecutors say Fogle traveled to New York to have sex with two underaged women and received child pornography of 12 children, who did not know they were being recorded.
His suit claims, the victim, identified as Jane Doe’s, parents, identified as B.T. and J.T.,
“… maintained a hateful and abusive relationship toward each other, which included, but was not limited to, engaging in frequent fighting and arguing between themselves; abusing alcohol and getting drunk; and engaging in frequent fighting, physical abuse, and arguing with Jane Doe.”
Fogle believes their behavior makes them the responsible parties Jane Doe having been secretly recorded at his former business partner, Russel Taylor’s home. The papers suggest Jane Doe became a victims of child pornography due to the stress and trauma caused by her parents’ divorce and custody battle.
“B.T. and J.T., by their actions, caused Jane Doe to suffer from emotional distress and depression which then resulted in Jane Doe engaging in destructive behaviors, including, but not limited to alcohol abuse, substance abuse, self-mutilation, and suicidal ideation with regard to which B.T. and J.T. are liable.”
Her parents have yet to respond to the lawsuit.
