A Subway franchise owner claims the company did nothing in 2008 when she went to them with information that former pitchman Jared Fogle admitted to paying minors for sex.

Franchisee Cindy Mills said Fogle told her that he paid minors for sex while on a trip to Thailand, and he also admitted to meeting a 16-year-old on Craigslist and having sex with her, Mills' lawyer Robert Beasley said, according to the New York Daily News.

According to Beasley, Mills alerted a regional Subway contact in Florida — where her stores were based — after Fogle confided in her details about his relationships with under-aged girls.

She also reportedly told Jeff Moody, head of the Subway Franchisee Advertising Fund Trust. He responded by telling Mills he had heard similar comments and assured her Fogle "had met a woman who would get him on the right track," Beasley told the Daily News.

"To me, it was confirmation that they knew about it," Beasley said.

Fogle, 37, reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors in Indiana last week, according to the Indianapolis Star. While the final decision will be up to a federal judge, prosecutors said they will not ask for more than 12 and a half years in prison.

The father of two children, Fogle was charged with distribution and receipt of child pornography and traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor, crimes that will land him a minimum of five years in prison.

Beasley told the Daily News that Mills decided to come forward after Fogle agreed to plead guilty in court.

In April, local police in Indiana arrested Russell C. Taylor, the former head of The Jared Foundation, on preliminary child pornography charges, spurring a larger investigation that eventually implicated Fogle, according to the Star.

The reaction to Mills' claims struck a chord on social media.
