The former Subway spokesperson/admitted child rapist tried to get his conviction for traveling to engage in sex with a minor overturned this week, claiming the court lacked jurisdiction over him because he was a “ sovereign citizen ” not governed by

Disgraced former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle failed to overturn his conviction last Wednesday. His argument: That the government simply didn’t have jurisdiction over him. Yep, it’s the sovereign citizen defense.

He pleaded guilty in 2015 to traveling to engage in sexual conduct with a minor, and to distribution and receipt of child porn. That didn’t stop him from filing in Indiana federal court with the help of a jailhouse lawyer Frank Edwin Pate, who is an inmate at Fogle’s prison.

From Judge Tanya Walton Pratt‘s ruling [citation removed]:

Pate’s filing contends the district court lacks subject matter jurisdiction over Fogle and states: “whether a judicial judgment is lawful depends on whether the sovereign has authority to render it.” … If Fogle is now claiming to be “sovereign”, the Seventh Circuit has rejected theories of individual sovereignty, immunity from prosecution, and their ilk.

The judge, who previously sentenced Fogle to 15 and a half years behind bars, cited rulings that countered this sort of argument. This included the 1990 7th Circuit opinion in United States v. Schneider. Pratt quoted where the court described the sovereign citizen defense as having “no conceivable validity in American law.”

Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton Defend Malia Obama's Right to Privacy .
Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton are condemning coverage that focuses on Malia Obama‘s private life. Trump and Clinton spoke out on Twitter in defense of the 19-year-old’s right to privacy as she navigates life as a freshman at Harvard University. “Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers,” Trump, 36, tweeted on Friday. “She is a young adult and pivate citizen, and should be OFF limits.” Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers. She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits.— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) November 24, 2017 Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) November 24, 2017 On Friday, 37-year-old Clinton tweeted: “Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.” Rapper and actor Common also joined the long list of tweeters condemning the invasive reports, simply writing, “Let Malia live.” Obama, the daughter of 44th commander-in-chief Barack and former First Lady Michelle, moved into her campus residence at Harvard University in August. During a September event, Michelle said her daughters sometimes struggle with handling fame. Michelle said then that it’s particularly difficult for Obama to deal with 20 to 30 people each day coming up to her and saying, “Do I know you?” or “Can I get a picture with you?” She added that her teen daughter needs patience and privacy.
