Jared Fogle, former Subway huckster, turned to an indie Scientologist for failed 'appeal' - 2017-11-15
We've seen numerous stories reporting that Jared Fogle, the disgraced former Subway restaurants pitchman, tried to pull a fast one with a bogus appeal written by a fellow inmate, a jailhouse lawyer, whose attempt to get Fogle's conviction overturned on jurisdictional grounds didn't fly with a U.S. district judge.
Fogle is serving 15.5 years in prison for receiving child pornography from Russell Taylor, a man who worked for Fogle at his foundation, and for traveling across state lines in order to procure sex with a minor. He's been in prison since November 2015.
Most of the news coverage on this new appeal is focusing on a single line from it, which, the news coverage tells us, argues that Fogle's conviction should be overturned because he's a "sovereign citizen."
