2 managers for Phoenix car-wash chain plead guilty

PHOENIX — Two lower-level managers for a metro Phoenix car-wash chain
accused of immigration fraud in its hiring practices have each pleaded guilty to
one count of conspiracy.

The pleas of Guadalupe Carlos Vazquez-Escorcia and Juan Zarate-Carreon on
Wednesday bring the number of Family Car Wash managers who have pleaded guilty
in the case to nine.

The two will be sentenced in March.

A July 10 trial has been set for other managers who pleaded not guilty to the
charges against them.

Some lower-level managers who have pleaded guilty have said in court that 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 1,900-person
workforce had presented insufficient or ineligible records when they were hired.
