Former Subway spokesperson, Jared Fogle, just tried to get himself out of some seriously bad charges.
washingtonpost.com reports: Former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle has tried to argue that he’s a “sovereign citizen,” claiming a federal court that convicted him on child pornography and sexual conduct involving minors did not have the authority to do it.
Fogle filed a motion on his own earlier this month in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Indiana, saying he wanted to correct an “error” regarding subject matter jurisdiction in the case.
That he is a sovereign citizen — a group the FBI calls “a domestic terrorist movement,” believing “federal, state, and local governments operate illegally.” In his motion, Fogle pointed to a “friend of the court” brief that was previously filed by a fellow inmate in the same federal prison, stating, “whether a judicial judgment is lawful depends on whether the sovereign has authority to render it.”
Fogle’s argument was thrown out.
