Ap­peal re­jected for ex-Sub­way pitch­man

The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS — A fed­eral judge in In­di­anapo­lis has re­jected an ap­peal that for­mer Sub­way pitch­man Jared Fogle filed him­self in an at­tempt to over­turn his child pornog­ra­phy and sex abuse con­vic­tions.

An or­der from Dis­trict Court Judge Tanya Wal­ton Pratt calls Fogle’s claim that the court didn’t have ju­ris­dic­tion to con­vict him “friv­o­lous” with “no con­ceiv­able va­lid­ity in Amer­i­can law.”

The In­di­anapo­lis Star re­ports Fogle’s mo­tion filed Nov. 6 was done with­out the high-pro­file at­tor­neys who rep­re­sented him when he pleaded guilty in Novem­ber 2015 to trad­ing in child pornog­ra­phy and pay­ing for sex with un­der­age girls. He’s serv­ing a 15year sen­tence at a fed­eral prison in Lit­tle­ton, Colo.

The 40-year-old In­di­ana man be­came a star of Sub­way’s ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paigns af­ter los­ing 200 pounds, partly by eat­ing Sub­way sand­wiches.
