On April 2nd (a week ago) we posted here on this blog an email in which Andy Esquivel basically thumbed his nose at the Davis County Court and openly refused to comply fully with a motion for reciprocal discovery which the prosecution filed last year. The motion was reiterated last month in a hearing in which the court went so far as to give Andy a deadline for compliance with the motion. In non-legal terms, Andy was required to hand over all evidence to the prosecutor, including witness names, addresses, phone numbers, expected testimony, any exhibits he intends to present at trial, etc. In response, Andy sent an idiotic email to the prosecutor claiming that he wasn’t going to fully comply with the order because 11 supposed “owners” of Xtagged who are supposedly going to testify at trial “don’t trust you guys!”
In response to Andy’s failure to fully comply with the prosecutions motion and to Andy’s ridiculous (but typical) email, the State of Utah filed a Motion to Compel [PDF]with the court, demanding that Andy immediately hand over a full witness list, each witnesses relationship to the defendant (ie: Jobita Berriel – Andy’s Mother, Sindy Monzano – Live-in Girlfriend, John Steer – Cousin, etc…) so that the court can determine their objectivity and potential prejudice, contact information for each witness so that Davis County Prosecutor Nathan Lyon can get depositions from them if required, AND ALL DOCUMENTATION OR EXHIBITS Andy is pretending to be holding out on until trial. If Andy fails to comply with the pending court order, he could be barred from presenting any such evidence in court on June 12th.
The Prosecutor attached a copy of the court order explaining what Andy needs to provide in exhibit A of the motion and also included a copy of Andy’s stupid email as exhibit B. This is the second time one of Andy’s rambling emails has been admitted as state’s evidence and made a matter of public record to show what a brainless moron Andy is for future reference in court.
How dumb can a criminal get? Hasn’t Andy learned yet that he can’t play games with the court and get away with it? Don’t be stupid Andy, hand over all evidence to the court immediately – unless of course you don’t actually HAVE any evidence and this is all just you pretending that you’re Perry Mason.
