IN--Victims blast Subway pitchman Jared Fogle over appeal
For immediate release: Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2015
Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, SNAP outreach director (314-503-0003 cell, bdorris@SNAPnetwork.org)
We’re saddened but not surprised that ex-Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is appealing his child porn sentence. That’s just what predators do: exploit the legal system like they exploit their victims.
We’re sad though because such legal maneuvers often delay healing and closure for victims.
We hope Fogle changes his mind. If not, we hope he loses his appeal. And for the sake of his victims, we hope he will quietly serve his sentence, get treatment and enable those who he hurt to move on with their lives without his self-serving behavior or interference.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 20,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers.
