INDIANAPOLIS -- Former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle, who is behind bars in federal prison in Colorado, is now the focus of his first federal lawsuit from one of his victims.

Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in December.

The victim, known as “Jane Doe,”  is seeking money for suffering personal injuries, emotional distress, invasion of privacy, negligent supervision and negligence. The lawsuit filed on Tuesday in federal court in Indianapolis also targets Russell Taylor and Angela Taylor. 

She is seeking $150,000 each from Russell Taylor and Fogle. 

Russell Taylor was sentenced to 27 years in December and is currently in custody in a federal prison in Northern Florida.

“Jane Doe” from Connersville says she was a guest at the home of Russell and Angela Taylor between March 2011 and January 2015 and was secretly videotaped changing clothes, showering and bathing.

She blames the Taylors for “negligent supervision” in allowing the recordings of her and other minor children and for sharing the video of nude images with Fogle. Watch our video in the player above to find out more about that part of the case.

The lawyer for "Jane Doe" released the following statement:

"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.  We are confident in Indiana’s legal system and fully intend to allow the legal process to play out in this case."

This lawsuit from the victim from Fayette County is one of many expected as Fogle is also seeking an appeal of his sentence in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The court is reviewing whether the judge that sentenced him imposed an excessive jail time. The government had ironed out a plea deal involving about 12 years, but the trial judge decided to sentence him for about 15 years.
