Instead, the lawsuit says, the international sandwich franchise ignored the complaints, promoted Fogle as a family man and sent him to speak with children as part of the company's educational initiatives.
In 2008, the suit alleges, Cindy Mills, a franchisee in Florida, told former Subway CEO Jeff Moody that she had a disturbing conversation with Fogle in which he told her he had sex with minors and liked them young.
A federal judge in November sentenced him to 15 years and eight months in prison after he pleaded guilty to possession or distribution of child pornography and traveling across state lines to have commercial sex with a minor.
