Ex-Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is suing his victim's parents

Jared Fogle is suing the parents of one of his sex-offense victims.

In court documents filed on Thursday, the former Subway pitchman deflected blame for the girl's emotional distress and personal injuries in the aftermath of his crimes, and argued that the girl's parents and not him are the source of her distress.

The victim, known in court papers as Jane Doe, sued Fogle earlier this year for $150,000 in damages related to his crimes.

She was one of several minors who were secretly video-taped undressing and bathing in the home of Russell Taylor, Fogle's business partner at the time.

Fogle pleaded guilty last year to viewing the tapes that were recorded in Taylor's home. He was later convicted and sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison for having sex with minors and receiving and distributing child pornography. He's serving out his sentence at a federal penitentiary in Colorado.

As part of his plea deal, Fogle paid $100,000 to each of his 14 victims, including Jane Doe.

In his latest court filing, however, Fogle claims that Jane Doe was suffering from depression and that she abused alcohol and drugs, as well as engaged in sex with "multiple partners" long before she knew about Fogle's crimes.

In the filing, he claims that her parents, named in the documents as "J.T. and B.T.," failed to properly supervise her.

He also accused them of inflicting emotional distress because of a messy divorce and "abusive relationship."

"The outrageous and reckless conduct of J.T. and B.T. committed over a period of several years inflicted personal injuries, emotional distress and psychological injury on Jane Doe from which she will continue to suffer," the document states. "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."

In the filing, Fogle requests that Jane Doe's parents be held liable for her emotional distress and "all other relief the court deems proper."

This is America, you can sue anyone.

He shouldn't be a free man to begin with. He should be behind bars. He's a danger to children and he's received no punishment for his crimes, the slap on the wrist was pathetic.

Whether you will win or win is another story.

Yep.

This Yahoo article doesn't really explain what is going on here adequately. The child is suing Fogle, and Fogle is asking the court to pull in the parents as third-party defendants. This isn't a standalone lawsuit against the parents, so he's not really suing them.

The fact that he isn't behind bars is insult to injury.

Huh?? He is still serving his sentence in jail.
