Jared Fogle's Ex-Wife Is Suing Subway for Allegedly Hiding His Pedophelia
A lawsuit from Katie McLaughlin, who married Fogle in 2010, accuses Subway of not acting on reports of the pitchman's "depravities."
The ex-wife of disgraced Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is suing the sandwich franchise because she claims the company knew he was a pedophile and failed to act on it, CNN Money reports.
Katie McLaughlin, who married Fogle in 2010, alleges in the suit that Subway executives had received reports of Fogle's "depravities" and attraction to children as early as 2004 but did not make the information public or alert her.
"Subway's ambition for sales and growth came at the expense of Katie [and her children]," the suit reads. It alleges the chain received three separate reports of Fogle's interest in children and still neglected to contact police.
"A responsible corporation would take immediate action when hearing of this behavior, even if it was only allegations," it continues. "Subway failed every test of corporate responsibility in its response to each of these complaints."
Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in prison for child sex charges in 2015.
