A federal appeals court has rejected Fogle's appeal of his sentence of more than 15 years in prison, finding his arguments unpersuasive.

(NEWS10) – According to a court filing, former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is blaming one of his sexual abuse victims and her parents for what he describes as her “destructive behaviors.”

Fogle, who is serving a more-than-15-year sentence for sexual abuse and child pornography charges, is also battling a civil suit filed brought by the victim’s parents.

The suit says the girl was a guest at the home of one of Fogle’s business associates. It also said she was secretly videotaped while changing clothes and showering.

The lawsuit seeks a total of $300,000 in damages.

Now Fogle is trying to turn the tables here, saying the parents should be held responsible for what he called an “abusive relationship” with the victim.
