PHOENIX -- A manager for a metropolitan Phoenix car-wash chain that's accused of immigration fraud in its hiring practices has pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy charge.

Jack Edlund is the highest-ranking staff member for Danny's Family Car Wash to have been charged in the case.

Edlund served as a general manager for the business from early 2011 to August 2013.

He pleaded guilty to the charge Friday.

Twelve of 14 Danny's managers who were charged have pleaded guilty.

Some lower-level managers who pleaded guilty have said that at least one higher-up within the company instructed them to rehire workers who had to be fired after a federal audit found nearly half of the company's 1,900-person workforce were people who weren't authorized to work in the United States.
