It’s been almost one year since Jared Fogle was sentenced to 15 years in prison on child molestation charges, but new revelations about the former Subway spokesman are still emerging. The latest comes from a lawsuit that Fogle’s ex-wife, Katie McLaughlin, recently filed against the Subway corporation. McLaughlin claims that Subway execs knew about the allegations against Fogle, but instead of investigating, they aided in an effort to conceal his crimes from the public.
“As early as 2004, Subway’s then Senior Vice President of Marketing received a complaint that Jared had approached a young girl at a promotional event for a Las Vegas Subway franchise for a sex act,” reads a portion of the suit, obtained by Radar Online.
“A responsible corporation would take immediate action when hearing of this behavior,” McLaughlin reportedly said in a recent deposition. And if her claims hold up in court, Subway could find itself coping with a PR nightmare that it may never recover from.
