Jared Fogle is being sued by one of his child porn victims. The minor, currently identified simply as “Jane Doe,” filed a complaint for damages against Fogle and his accomplice, Russell Taylor.

According to local Indianapolis news station WISH-TV, Doe repeatedly paid visits to the home of Taylor and his wife, Angela (who is also noted in the complaint). The suit alleges that Taylor — the former head of Fogle’s foundation and the man who shared child pornography with the ex–Subway spokesman — installed hidden cameras to secretly film minors changing their clothes and bathing.

The documents claim that Taylor distributed “some of these sexually explicit images and videos of Jane Doe and other minor children to Jared Fogle.”

According to the court document, former Subway spokesman Fogle, 38, received nude images and video of Doe and various minors several times between March 2011 and January 2015. She is suing Fogle and Taylor for $150,000 each.

Court papers state that Doe has and will continue to “suffer severe emotional distress and personal injuries.”

“It is accurate that on Tuesday, March 15, 2016, we filed a Complaint for Damages against Jared Fogle, Russell Taylor, and Angela Taylor in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, for the significant emotional trauma our client has suffered,” the victim’s lawyer said in a statement. “We are confident in Indiana’s legal system and fully intend to allow the legal process to play out in this case. Because of the sensitive nature of the subject matter, we are concerned that our client is not further traumatized; therefore, in an effort to respect our client’s privacy, we will not be making any further comments or statements on this matter at this time.”

Fogle is currently serving a 15-year sentence in prison on child pornography and sex crime charges. In August 2015, the U.S. Attorney's Office released documents accusing Fogle of "engaging in sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography." He was convicted and sentenced in November.

"For most of my adult life, I've been in the spotlight, trying to be a role model," he said in a statement at the time. "I became dependent on alcohol, pornography and prostitutes … Not a day will go by when I don't think about what I did to [the victims]."

Amid the court case, Subway permanently stopped working with Fogle, and his wife, Katie, filed for divorce, citing an "irretrievable breakdown of the marriage." The couple married in 2010 and share two young children.
