NEW YORK (AP) — A former executive who was in charge of Subway's advertising says he wasn't aware of Jared Fogle's criminal sexual conduct with minors.

Jeff Moody, who was CEO of the Subway Franchisee Advertising Fund Trust, says in a statement Friday that he was "shocked" to learn of the "deplorable criminal sexual behavior with minors" to which the former Subway pitchman has agreed to plead guilty.

Moody's statement adds that "like any decent human being" he is "repulsed" by it.

Robert Beasley, a lawyer for former Subway franchisee Cindy Mills, has said Mills shared her concerns about Fogle with Moody in 2008. Beasley didn't respond to calls Friday. Earlier in the day, he said Mills didn't want to speak anymore.

Moody's statement says he learned this summer about the allegations against Fogle.
