"Locals Were Troubled by Roy Moore’s Interactions with Teen Girls at the Gadsden Mall"

This past weekend, I spoke or messaged with more than a dozen people—including a major political figure in the state—who told me that they had heard, over the years, that Moore had been banned from the mall because he repeatedly badgered teen-age girls. Some say that they heard this at the time, others in the years since. These people include five members of the local legal community, two cops who worked in the town, several people who hung out at the mall in the early eighties, and a number of former mall employees.

A federal judge on Wednesday rejected an effort by Jared Fogle, the former face of Subway sandwiches, to overturn his conviction for traveling to engage in sex with a minor, filed on his behalf by a jailhouse lawyer.

Fellow inmate Frank Pate filed a motion for Fogle, claiming the court lacked jurisdiction over Fogle because of his status as a so-called “sovereign citizen.”
