Danny's Family Car Wash Owner Danny Hendon Not Named in ICE Indictment

Danny Hendon's name is on the business, but not the federal indictment...

In the scrum of reporters, lawyers and family members waiting to gain entry to federal Magistrate Michelle Burns' courtroom Monday afternoon in downtown Phoenix, one question was bandied about above all others.

Was Danny Hendon's name listed in the indictment?

Hendon is the owner of the Danny's Family Car Wash chain, which was raided Saturday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE took 223 workers and managers into custody, cut loose 179, held 30 on immigration violations, and criminally charged 14, though others may have been charged criminally as well, as you'll see.

But to answer the question of the moment: No, Hendon was not listed on the indictment unsealed Monday afternoon. Nor was he in court.

The indictment charged the various corporate entities that make up the Danny's Family Car Wash chain, and 14 assorted managers, with an assortment of federal charges related to "a conspiracy to employ unauthorized aliens."

A "DFC owner" is mentioned in one paragraph, but not by name.

Read the federal indictment involving Danny's Family Car Wash.

A source close to the investigation indicated that ICE was reviewing the evidence culled from the raid on 16 locations of Danny's and the employment firm HR Betty, and that future charges may be coming.

(Note: HR Betty was not listed as a defendant in the indictment.)

I tried two numbers for Hendon. At one a woman answered, but she refused to take my name and number. At the other, I left a message for Hendon via voice mail. If Hendon returns the call, I'll update this post.

The government alleges that a 2010 federal audit of "current or recently-active employees" revealed that "approximately 50 percent of DFC's work force," that is, 942 out of 1,912 persons, had not provided proper paperwork at the time they were hired.

But he is still a jackass. He treats any employee that doesn't kiss his ass like trash. I simply said "hello" to the fucker when I worked there.... he didn't even look up. I mentioned that the ice machine was leaking rubber foam into the ice.... what did they do...? NOT A DAMN THING. Danny is just a simple-minded republican; if you try talking about anything that doesn't rob the public and make Danny rich, HE AIN'T LISTENING ;)

Federal prosecutors are going after complete forfeiture of all 13 of Danny's Family Car Wash properties and they have charged high level managers with crimes that, if proven, result in prison sentences of up to 5 years.  Does anyone believe that Danny's managers are not going to roll on Danny?  Will Danny try to roll on Arpaio?  Was Arpaio complicit in a conspiracy to protect Danny's in a quid pro quo for donations and fundraising services from Danny's? I hope this ends Arpaio's career.  I can't wait to see the campaign adds with Arpaio holding up a $40,000.00 check and tanking Danny's for the fundraising support! Arpaio is either corrupt or incompetent.

Exploiting illegals" is good when the money goes into your own Filthy Hands right Arpaio?!!

Nice "Protection Racket " with your Executive Posse Member/Pal, and how nice of you to Raid Danny's Competition for YEARS!

I'm calling for an immediate boycott of Danny's and their business license revoked. I will be talking to the appropriate Maricopa County department later who can do that.  Their license to operate must be revoked due to their illegal business and hiring practices.

It's despicable and outrageous that this kind of ID theft is being ignored and encouraged. Please see the following article:

http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/region_phoenix_metro/central_phoenix/Former-Dannys-Family-Car-Wash-employees-say-managers-doing-what-they-were-told

I feels sorry for that poor woman who was denied benefits because her ID had been stolen and was being used by a Danny's employee.  If I had been her, I would have confronted the thief and beat the crap out of her.  She wouldn't have been hard to find.

I have decided it all boils down to the fact that if illegal aliens aren't being held accountable for their actions, why should you or I or anybody else? Isn't that the way you want it to be?

I could use some extra money so how about if if I go out and steal people's identitities and apply for credit cards in their name to use to get money.  Would this be acceptable or would I land myself in jail? 

I'm sure there will be another raid there - this time by Arpaio's office. The sonner the better.

How does a business owner not know that more than half his employees were fired for fake ID's and then re-hired? He signs the paychecks doesn't he?

Danny will be indicted. It's just a matter of time.

Doesnt sound like danny is the employer but the owner, last i heard, large businesses usually dont have the owner hiring employees. I cant believe the audacity of these illegals to scream and cry theyre not criminals, even when the blatant evidence is rubbed right in their face. A woman even told an illegal bitch to stop using her identity! Did she stop? Fuck no, because shes mexican and is an exception to the rules. Ridiculous!

just finished reading a article on ABC15 about an ex-employee of Danny's family who's ID was re-used by Danny's family for illegals. if you want a good laugh, check out the comments. so far nobody has watched the news clip where the person explains that the company reused her ID for the illegals that were employed by them. they are all commenting about how the illegals stole her ID.  nobody has checked the news clip where she explains that it was the employers that stole the ID and gave it to the illegals. F***ing twits

Danny wasn't named for one reason.  The feds know that as they go higher up the management chain, people will be VERY willing to provide info to the feds for lesser charges.  In a few weeks, there will be so much dirt on Danny that a mega high pressure wash wouldn't get him clean in 30 years!


I wonder if Danny has called Joke yet, starting with "you know that MCSO memorial fund?....."

It seems that certainly Hendon has learned a lot from the MOST CORRUPT SHURF IN AMERICA, also probably he "doesn't recall" anything about his own business, since probably he "DELEGATED EVERYTHING TO HIS SOBORDINATES"  and is not aware of all"THE NUTS & BOLTS"  in that machinery.. WHAT A FUCKNG JOKE.

Of course they are not going to go after the "owner" of a small business, they are the back bone of the country and "Merica counts on them creating jobs; especially those that pay slave wages and employ people willing to work for less than minimum wage as an "independent contractor." If you want to stop illegal immigration tomorrow, do this; $1 million fine, per employee, per occurrence for employers who hire illegal immigrants. No jobs, no illegal immigrants. The ironic part is that the folks who are screaming the loudest about illegal immigration are the ones who want them here the most (or those who are too stupid to realize what the issue really is), because they benefit from the depressed wages.

@robert_graham Bro this how fucking stupid you are.  You know that Danny was a big donor to your hero Sheriff Joe, and knowing he had illegals working all this time even working side by side with MCSO at a car wash benefit.  Sheriff Joe didn't do shit about it cause he's getting the dough from Danny!  Give it up bro, your fucking sheriff fighting against illegal immigration is bullshit and is only doing this shit for publicity.

Didn't you get that Dannys is basically the M.C.S.O. Official Car Wash, Owned by an M.C.S.O. Executive Possee Member that Donates Heavily to the M.C.S.O., and Arpaio's Re-election Fund?!

Arpaio's Deputies even work side by side at Dannys washing cars with un-documented Workers, but only if all of the proceeds go to the M.C.S.O.

Arpaio in turn Raids Dannys Smaller  Competitor Car Washes while "Protecting " Danny's!

ilegals are O.K. when they work for Arpaio's Benifit.

Call who ever you want dumb arse.

You write: "It's despicable and outrageous that this kind of ID theft is being ignored and encouraged."

YEAH, ignored by your hero, JOE ARPAIO! Encouraged by virtue of MCSO protection in the form of forbearance when the crimes were so clearly evident.

JoeArpaioFan, when are you going to call for Arpaio to be arrested for corruption?  Complicity?  Conspiracy to commit ID Fraud?  

After all, Arpaio is the beneficiary of Danny's largess and Arpaio has been protecting Danny's, accepting campaign contributions from Danny and partnering with Danny on fundraisers.  Arpaio just handed out a $40,000 check, thanks to Danny!

C'mon, you fucking hypocrite, when are you going to come out against your hero?

@robert_graham@MaskedMagician1967  

Oh, and while you're at it, lock up Sheriff Joe Arpaio for corruption and complicity in the conspiracy to commit ID Fraud! 

After all, Joe benefited from a quid pro quo with Danny's.  Our corrupt Sherrif received cash donations and ongoing fundraising services from Danny in exchange for looking the other way when it was obvious Danny's profited from an undocumented workforce.  Arpaio even raided Danny's competition, further supporting Danny's criminal enterprise.

It is time for JoeArpaioFan to denounce his hero, Joe Arpaio, and to call for Arpaio's resignation, call for Arpaio's imprisonment, and call for a beat-down of that old corrupt SOB before he's carted off to prison.

So what do say you, JoeArpaioFan?  Are you the fucking hypocrite everyone here knows you are, or will you now denounce Arpaio publicly, here on Phoenix New Times, as well as on one of your cheesy websites?

@danzigsdaddy @WhoKnows It's like any crime family (aka Mafia).  They get the lieutenants to rat on the boss!  Now if that would only happen within MCSO....


The ties to the the MCSO Memorial fund and Danny's are STRONG.  If you go to the fund website, it's "Danny's" on every page, and it seems that much of that fund was due to an employer KNOWINGLY hiring illegals!  Seems the feds could not only go after Danny's itself, but also go after the fund.
