The disgraced former spokesman for Subway who was jailed for trading child abuse images and sex abuse is suing the parents of one of his victims.
Jared Fogle was sentenced to more than 15 years in a Colorado prison for his crimes in November.
Fogle is now accusing the parents of one of his victims of being to blame for what he calls her “destructive behaviours”, according to a filing in the US District Court in Indianapolis obtained by the Associated Press.
The parents and the victim are not named in the document, which also alleges they argued and drank in front of her. His suit claims they were the cause of her distress and contends the parents may be liable for some or all of her claims against him.
The girl, who filed a lawsuit against Fogle for monetary damages in March, was secretly filmed getting undressed and bathing in the home of his business partner.
Fogle’s suit claims: “Custody and parenting time (agreements),” it says, “required Jane Doe to constantly rotate her living arrangements caused unnecessary stress, anxiety, and trauma for Jane Doe.”
Her parents have not responded to the suit.
