Ex-manager of Phoenix car wash chain pleads guilty

PHOENIX -- A former lower-level manager for a metro Phoenix car-wash chain accused of immigration fraud in its hiring practices has pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy charge.

Juan Ruiz-Gonzalez's guilty plea Friday marked the 11th manager from Danny's Family Car Wash to plead guilty.

Some lower-level managers who have pleaded guilty have said at least one higher-up within Danny's instructed them to rehire workers who had to be fired after a federal audit found nearly half of the company's workforce had presented insufficient or ineligible records when they were hired.

Ruiz-Gonzalez worked as a manager for the chain, but eventually was fired as a result of the audit.

He said in court records that he was later rehired and was involved in the rehiring of the fired workers.
