Car Wash Owners Plead No Contest to Labor Code Violations, Will Serve Jail Time

In February, 2009, we posted that the City of Los Angeles had filed a 176-count criminal complaint against two Los Angeles car wash owners, a manager, and their four car wash businesses for repeatedly and willfully violating labor laws and creating a work environment that bordered on indentured servitude.

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times reported that the two car wash owners, brothers Benny and Nissan Pirian, have pleaded no contest to six criminal counts, including conspiracy, grand theft, and labor code violations. Each was sentenced to a year in jail and four years' probation and ordered to pay restitution to their victims in an amount to be decided at a future court future hearing. The Times article is here.
