Quote# 121523

Former Subway sandwich pitchman Jared Fogle, in jail for his conviction on child pornography and sex with minors charges, blamed the parents of one of his female victims for her “destructive behaviors.”

Fogle, 38, who became famous after shedding weight on a diet that included sandwiches from the fast-food chain, pleaded guilty in November 2015 to charges of child pornography and traveling for illicit paid sex with minors.

Fogle, in a response filed on Thursday to a civil lawsuit brought on behalf of the girl, argued her parents should be third-party defendants alongside him. The parents may be liable for all or part of the victim’s claims against him, according to the court documents.

The victim, who was surreptitiously videotaped by an associate of Fogle for pornography, which became a part of the case against Fogle, filed her lawsuit in March. Her case seeks monetary damages for personal injuries and mental anguish.

The allegations are separate from the charges for which Fogle is serving a 15-1/2-year prison sentence, which was upheld by a U.S. appeals court in Chicago in June.

An attorney for Fogle declined to comment. Attorneys for the victim did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Fogle’s motion says the parents’ “hateful and abusive” relationship toward each other, alcohol abuse and a lack of parental supervision caused emotional distress and depression suffered by their daughter, and paved the way for several “destructive behaviors” in which she engaged.

The parents are liable for her “harmful activities” like alcohol abuse, substance abuse, self-mutilation, and sexual activity with multiple partners, Fogle’s complaint says.

"If I'm going down, I'm taking you assholes with me!" part 104,482,103.

Jared, even if her parents ARE hateful and abusive, you're the one who was complicit in her sexual abuse via being videotaped. This does not help your case whatsoever.

Yes, I agree. How DARE they not greet you with a loaded shotgun. The nerve of them!

Just, just go fuck off and die.

Blaming the victim's parents, well that's a twist on an old classic.

So, basically, either her parents are human shit just like you and you took advantage of it, or you just want a side order of libel to go with your charges of raping children. Neither option speaks in your favor, short eyes.

I hope this goes nowhere and he stays in his little cell will Bubba. What a monster!

@SpukiKitty: Even if this went anywhere, Fogle's not. I don't know why he's doing this unless he's trying to drag the victim's parents down with him out of spite. He obviously doesn't give a rat's ass about the girl's well-being.

Jared, the fuckwit who made me hate my previously favourite sandwich chain... I had to learn how to make these footlongers myself, including my beloved ranch dressing, you degenerate fuck!

Then again this in turn helped me with my job at the deli where I worked for some time, so there`s a silver linig. for me, not for him.

Jared, if my idea of justice was how things were, you would be hanging right now from a tree.

Be thankful for the small mercies, like the fact you are alive and never going to see the light of freedom again, rather than dead.

@ Skidie: If it means anything, Subway dropped Fogle like a skunk with leprosy when his little hobby was revealed, so unless/until details of wider malfeasance are revealed I'm giving them a pass.

Good to know, I was under the impression they stuck with the bastard. Well, maybe now I`ll give them my patronage next time I visit our local mall.

Can a copy of the suit be forwarded to his cellmates and the nearest death squad?

Can I have an old Sub please, that's gone rock-hard? Because I've just thought of a good place to shove it.

Well, it's official, Fogle's a 'family values' Republican.

Paedo blames victim. Sad, but unfortunately not uncommon (enough) on this site.

What I want to know is this: Didn't Fogey get fat again?

It doesn't matter how the parents raised her, Jared - you still made the conscious decision to illegally perv on her. Stick to eating sandwiches, because basic law is clearly over your head.

No, Fogle, you're still a pedophile.

If anything, Fogle's excuse makes him look worse, because if what he's saying is true, he not only creeped on a little girl, but he also took advantage of an abused child for porn.

He sounds like a regular Christian to me, blaming the victim and all.

First Josh Buggar, now Jarhead Fiddler.

Thank you for your contribution to the destruction of the right-wing: by themselves, no less.

Keep proving that we left-wingers are more than infinitely superior to you: in every way imaginable.

Actually, Fogle is Jewish. Just goes to show, people like this are reprehensible no matter their faith or colour.

You say that like it's relevant.

Never my fault, eh? Spiteful and perverse, you are exactly where you need to be, Fogle. Now stay there.

This is the kind of person that is paid to be the face of a business. You have got to be shitting me. Although all things considered with what I know about Subway I guess I should have seen this coming.

Ok, let's asume that a first degree murder accuses a person of robbery. So what?
