NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — "Finding out that your husband and the father of your children is a child predator, and knowing that his job involved him in visiting schools on a regular basis, is devastating."

For the first time ever, Jared Fogle's ex-wife  Katie McLaughlin  is speaking out, and now she's serving Subway a special delivery of her own in the form of a lawsuit!

"Finding out that Subway did not act upon at least one complaint while continuing to utilize Jared as their spokesperson, and facilitated his visits to those hundreds of schools,  is beyond comprehension," McLaughlin said.

The heart of McLaughlin's suit begs the question, 'What exactly did Subway executives know, and when did they know it?'

Fogle is currently serving a 15-year sentence in federal prison for possession and distribution of child porn and for sex with a minor.

The lawsuit claims Subway execs were tipped off to Jared's pervy behavior multiple times over the years, but the 'Suits' never did anything about it!

"Subway even took the step of marketing him as a family man and used my children's and my likenesses in that campaign," McLaughlin said. "I did not give them the consent to do this."

So why did Subway execs hold back?

The suit claims Jared took the company's revenues from $3.1 billion to a whopping $11.5 billion in just 15 years, so Jared was too valuable to mess with.

"Bringing this lawsuit was not an easy decision to make.  I am by nature and practice a very private person," McLaughlin shared. "I have kept my children out of the public arena despite their father's career, arrest, and conviction."

So, will Subway settle or go to court?

The jury is still out on that.
