PHOENIX (AP) - A 31-year-old man accused of faking emission test results while working as manager of a Glendale auto shop has been sentenced to nine months in jail and fined $10,000 after pleading guilty.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office said 31-year-old Bani Montemayor acknowledged using electronic devices to generate fraudulent passing test results for vehicles that should not have passed.

The office said undercover investigators posting as consumers had taken the vehicles to the shop.

Under an agreement with prosecutors, Montemayor pleaded guilty Feb. 18 to illegally conducting an enterprise. A Maricopa County Superior Court judge sentenced him March 19.
