PHOENIX -- Ten of the 14 people facing criminal charges after weekend raids of a metro Phoenix car-wash chain and its staffing-service provider have pleaded not guilty.

The 10 entered their pleas at their arraignments in federal court Monday afternoon.

Authorities say one other person will be arraigned later this week and three people haven't been arrested yet.

The raids Saturday at locations associated with Danny's Family Car Wash and staffing-service provider HR Betty resulted in another 30 people being taken into custody for immigration processing because they had past criminal convictions prior orders to leave the country.

Another 179 workers who had no criminal histories and no egregious immigration violations were released from custody within hours of being interviewed by federal authorities.
