Jared Fogle, famous as the once-upon-a-time mascot of Subway whose weight loss was used by the company to sell their food as part of a healthy diet, has filed a new case against the US federal government. In his case he alleges that the government has conspired against him. The new filing comes just after his latest attempt in March to have the judge presiding over his case recused.

The once-mascot is currently in prison and is facing more charges related to his possession of child pornography, and sexual contact with a minor. Previously the FBI had served him a search warrant and raided his property, obtaining evidence against him in the process, but now Fogle alleges that there is no evidence of the search warrant for his property being filed. His case names the judge currently on the case, three other judges and two attorneys who Fogle claims gave him bad advice and told him to plead guilty during his earlier trials.
He is, essentially, claiming that he is a victim of racketeering and that attorneys, FBI agents, and judges have all conspired to have him arrested and charged with paedophilia. He is seeking three payments of $19 million for a total of $57 million as he is a “person injured in his businesses or personal property” and should be compensated as such.
Fogle was once famous for his role as the mascot of Subway, the sandwich chain. In his appearances he would talk about how he had lost an enormous amount of weight and changed his life by eating at Subway. This changed when it emerged he had been arrested and charged with numerous crimes against children, including sexual contact and possession of child pornography. At first Jared pled guilty to the crimes and agreed to pay $1.4 million in restitution to his victims, but he is now claiming he was coerced into doing so by this elaborate conspiracy against.

Personally, we’re inclined to think Jared has gone a little mad. He offers no real explanation for why any of the people involved would have created an elaborate and over-the-top conspiracy to wrongfully incriminate the man responsible for selling us sandwiches from a fast-food restaurant. It’s not exactly like he’s a Russian spy, is it? We think it sounds much more believable that a man committed despicable crimes and is willing to do and say anything possible to not be held accountable for said crimes.
