The state of Utah has intercepted Andy Esquivel’s 2018 tax refund on February 27th and used the cash to pay off the victims of his Xtagged scam. Because of this blog, Andy’s victims have been repaid in full with interest!
Thanks Andy, on behalf of Ryion, Kyle and Chris. This website will remain in perpetuity as a monument to your fraud and to the stupidity of your accomplices.
Andy just posted the details of another one of his silly inventions on his Facebook page. Here are the details, un-edited. Note: this ridiculous idea came to Andy while he was locked away in a state mental institution.
Sean D. Reyes I will replace this picture with video of me opening poor mans patented sealed envelope I sent myself of pill bottle invention @ Utah State Hospital May 30, 2014 but you must hear the story behind the invention first. When corrupt Davis county public defenders & prosecutors held me in jail for 119 days before sending me to corrupt Utah State Hospital director MIke Cox. I knew of another Davis county inmate that was ordered to U.S.H the same day as me but they transported him within a week not 119 days and you know what happens at 120 days, I get the right to ask Judge “what’s up” & I did write Judge Connors a letter @ 114 days I do have copies of all the letters I wrote Judge Connors because I had inmates make human copies that I sent to Judge Connors from within the jail & I kept all the originals and sent them all out with inmates (Vince Rosana Hernandez etc.) that got released & Allen Brady would give them a ride home as a thank you. So when I finally got transported to U.S.H I was screened by Dr. Z, I can’t put full names at this time Dr. Z gave me test and I easily passed so she gave me another, I PASSED! Dr. Z then looked at Mike Cox and said what’s going on why is Mr. Andres Esquivel here, Mike said try ******* test and she did so, I PASSED! Dr. Z then starts to argue with Mike Cox and I was told to go back to my room. I was telling everyone that worked @ U.S.H “I am innocent I have been on the news for my inventions you all can see news videos @ WiserTechnology.com” and they were pulling out smartphones instantly except for Mike Cox of course & to make a long story short Dr. Z proved to me I could trust her & at 60 of the 90 days evaluation Dr. Z was replaced by Dr. Vitco but Dr. Z had given me a treat & told me if they try to give me meds say no and ask to see the USH board, you can get board minutes & I was put in the same room as ******** the man whom I invented pill bottle with May 30, 2014 I found him immediately upon my arrival to USH and I asked him if there were no beds available because that’s what MIke Cox was telling Sindy Manzano, Jobita Berriel, Allen Brady every time they called USH & asked why I was still in jail and ******** laughed and said that was a lie by MIke Cox. Beds were available the whole time but the sad thing is ******* should not have had a bed himself and I will tell you why, ******** would never give me his last name he would say can’t it’s against the USH rules & he was right I asked the desk workers and they said only first names with patients. ******* had job in cafeteria & got an extra hour outside to play with his baton & a lot of extras that don’t need to be mentioned at this time & when I asked him about it he said Mike Cox hooked it up for his dad a speaker at BYU and I knew I needed to find out why. So I decided to prove WiserTechnology.com saying “Desperation breeds creativity” and ******** asked, “What is that DBC?” BINGO! I told ******* it’s the mother of invention, wanna try and he said YES! So I asked him why he went to jail and ended up at USH, ******* then preceded to tell me his case step by step “I took 12 ambien pills & I stabbed my friend with a seven inch knife” I was like wow let’s invent something so that this does not happen to anyone else & the first thing that entered my mind was a PEZ dispenser. I remembered that my grandma Ofelia Esquivel would get mad at us as kids for eating all the PEZ candy within minutes of her giving us PEZ dispenser haha and I told ******** think of a PEZ dispenser that locks with your smartphone app so your kids can only access one when you unlock or say its time to enjoy a candy one at a time or two if you approve but on an adult level and his eyes went BOOM a pill bottle like that would make millions and I told him I will share this invention with you but we must draw up idea, make contract and sign our full names so we can make poor mans patent and self mail from hospital. Please note zip code of USH and the zip code stamped on envelope I will explain what MIke Cox was doing on Facebook live 10.31.2018. After we received letter back from MIke Cox ******** trusted me and told me his dad made arrangement with MIke Cox to keep him in USH as long as possible because he knew ******* was going to be sentenced to seven years in prison & USH time is time served so ******* could avoid going to prison. (More to come, I have phone call)
At a court hearing on September 4th, Andy Esquivel admitted to all allegations enumerated in the order to show cause submitted by the prosecutor at his last hearing. Andy of course gave the court some bullshit sob story about having vertigo, suffering from “panic attacks” and not being able to work full time, but the court wasn’t having it. Judge Connors gave Andy a direct order to produce a financial affidavit and a plan to pay off restitution five (5) months ago. He did not comply. The prosecution asked for 30 days in jail to “get [Andy’s] attention” and to revoke and restart probation. The prosecutor made it plain that Andy “has not made restitution payments a priority in his life”.
The fact is, Andy stole a lot of money – $20,000 from these victims alone! No sob story is going to change the fact that he has taken money illegally and needs to pay it back to stay out of jail.
Judge Connors told Andy point-blank that he will send him to jail for failing to comply with a court order to produce a financial affidavit and a plan alone! A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for September 18th at 9:15am. At that time, Andy needs to produce a plan to pay back restitution in full or he will be going to jail…period!
Courtroom audio attached to this post for your enjoyment. It’s pretty pathetic. How sad must it feel to be a broke, barely employed, convicted felon with no skills, no education, four kids living with you and three more who won’t speak to you, a persistent substance abuse problem, more bills to pay than you can afford, and nothing to look forward to in your life except more heat from the courts. Poor Andy’s life sucks so badly that he is forced to live in a constant state of mental delusion, pretending that the FBI and Attorney General give a damn about his life. …poor dumb schmuck!
Here’s the latest violation report fro Andy Esquivel. Once again, not paying his restitution. Court review coming up real soon. Bad timing.
This site is now sitting on an 8-core 3.8Ghz dedicated server with 16GB of ram, a 500GB primary SSD and a 1-terabyte secondary drive. For comparison, note that PartyUtah.com (when I owned it) was hosted on a dual-core 2.4ghz dedicated server with twin 250GB drives and 8GB of ram. Needless to say, the new server is MUCH more powerful!
Well, it’s official: Judge Connors today signed an order putting Andy on notice that his court probation is being revoked. The order to show cause states flatly that Andy has not complied with the terms of his probation, has not paid required restitution, has not complied with lawful court orders to provide financial disclosures and a plan to pay victims back, has shown nothing but contempt for the court and it’s officers, and now has 90 days to “show cause” why his probation should not be revoked.
If Andy cannot explain to the court why his probation should not be revoked by September 4th, 2018 at 8:30am, then the original sentence will be imposed on Andy and he will be facing up to five (5) years in prison for the two felony counts of securities fraud that he plead guilty to. No “misdemeanors”, no “payment plans”, no deals…period!
The court gave Andy a lot of rope. They put him on probation with AP&P, but he screwed that up by antagonizing probation officer after probation officer until Roman Hentish finally called him out on his crap. The court then agreed to court supervised probation, but Andy couldn’t handle that either. Now, it’s finally over.
Andy and his minions remain in denial. witness this recent post by one of Andy’s Facebook friends…
It is obvious from posts like this one that the delusions continue. Of course none of Andy’s cronies shows up for court onJune 5th, and even if they had, demanding that I be “called to court” would have done nothing to save Andy.
It is very likely that Andy Esquivel will eventually g to jail for his crimes. If he’d simply cooperated form the start, he’d already be released and he could g on with his life…but he didn’t. Andy still insists that he “didn’t sell no securities”, even though his court pleading clearly states that he did. The mental illness couldn’t be more clear.
And so we’re coming to the end of this saga. It’s been fun to write about, but I’m glad it’s almost over.
Yesterday the courts released the latest courtroom audio for the probation review hearings of Andy Esquivel. To put it mildly, the court is starting to lose patience with this pathological lying sociopath. Here’s the latest case update [PDF] and here’s the audio from the April 4th hearing [MP3]
In a nutshell, Andy hasn’t been making his payments. He claims that he stopped making payments because he was forced to pay $1,000 per month in child support, but that’s a lie. He was making $500/mo. child support payments, but that stopped in January.
Andy’s attorney tried to plead for leniency, but that was doomed from the start because unfortunately for Andy, the prosecutor brought a screen shot of a Facebook post Andy made after the last hearing in which Judge Connors cut Andy a little slack and it was damning to say the least.
After the prosecutor read this ridiculous post, in which Andy threatens to open up a can of whup-ass on the prosecution and brags about taking the court for a ride with a made-up story about his daughter needing emergency surgery, the prosecutor asked the judge to order that Andy hand over complete financials, tax records, and a written plan as to how he intends to pay his victims back.
Andy tried to explain his way out of this hole, but it was too late. Judge Connors had finally had enough! The Judge ordered Andy to comply with the request of the prosecution and to do so by June 5th, 2018 or else. At the end of the audio you can hear Andy gulp audibly as he realized his probation was about to be terminated, his plea deal invalidated, and that the full weight of his crimes will soon be on his shoulders to bare alone.
Time is up for Andy. On June 5th, he needs to start getting serious. The court has played games with this con-artist for seven years and they’ve finally decided not to play anymore.
Andy is now in violation of his probation…again. In September, the court gave Andy a two-month reduction in his restitution payments from $500 to $250 per month. He paid in September to avoid going to jail right away and promised to pay $250 in October, then to go back to $500 in November. The court agreed to give Andy a temporary reduction because Andy claimed his daughter had a “orthodontic emergency”.
Bottom line, Andy skipped the reduced October payment and is not late on the November payment as well. That’s a bad thing. According to the violation report, Andy has until October 4th to come current or he will be forced to appear again before Judge Connors and explain why. Note: “explain why” will be an especially difficult task this time because (a) the judge displayed incredible leniency in granting Andy a two month reprieve in the first place and (b) Judge Connors said very clearly in the last hearing that Andy needs to accelerate his payments and/or come up with a way to pay the full restitution in bulk soon or else. Andy walking into court and claiming that he needs even more time and more leniency to pay his obligations isn’t going to go over very well.
I’ll post again after October 4th when the court decide what to do next. It’ll probably start with a warrant for his arrest.
UPDATE: Andy called the court on December 4th (just in the nick of time) and explained that ORS is now garnishing 50% of his wages and so he can’t make payments anymore. Andy was told to contact Judge Connors if he’s seeking a different order to pay (not likely to be approved) and to contact his attorney to prepare for his next court date.
Andy’s attorney explained that Andy will likely now be referred to the Office of State Debt Collection while Judge Connors decides what else to do with him. The likeliest outcome here is that Andy will spend some time in jail (I’m thinking 3-6 months) for violating the conditions of his probation (again) and then OSDC will garnish the remainder of Andy’s meager salary (if he still has a job when he gets out of jail) to satisfy his obligations under case 111701135.
In the meantime, Andy STILL has not contacted the Utah Department of Securities (the “SEC” as Andy calls them) to make arrangements to pay the $16,250 he owes them for his securities fraud. It seems the steaming pile is growing on top of Andy every minute. If both debts go to OSDC before Andy works out a payment arrangement that he can adhere to, it will likely mean even more garnishments and more fees and Andy won’t see half his paychecks again until he’s 50!
UPDATE: Another violation letter was mailed to Andy Esquivel and Judge Connors has been notified of his most recent violation status. Andy is no longer making child support payments, but has not yet resumed his restitution payments. This will all likely come to a head at his next review hearing.
This is an update for those who are still following the case. You’ve already heard the audio file form the last hearing in which Andy lied to the Judge about his daughter having a medical orthodontic emergency and got a two month reduction in his payments to $250 but here’s the official court minutes file:
You’ll also note we’re tracking all of Andy’s account balances in the upper left hand corner now. Andy has been making his court ordered reparations payments regularly and has even started paying back child support. His total balance is about to drop below $45,000.
We expect Andy to be out of trouble with the courts financially by around mid 2020. At that point, only the $16,250 he owes theUtah Department of Securities will remain…unless of course we as blog administrators decide to alert the SEC again so that they can continue their investigation. Because Andy’s fraud crossed state lines, this case technically falls under federal jurisdiction. Also, the $50,000 that Allen Brady helped Andy steal from his mother Georgia Brady makes this a federal crime.
…but we’ll see.
As everyone who’s been following this blog knows, years ago three scam victims of Andy Esquivel banded together and filed a complaint alleging that Andy improperly sold them shares in a scam he was running at the time called “Xtagged”. This blog was instrumental in organizing those victims and served as a central distribution point for all evidence against Andy and his accomplices.
We all know the results: Andy plead guilty to two 3rd degree felony counts of securities fraud, spent some time in jail, a little more time in a mental institution, and was eventually ordered to pay his victims back over $13,000 plus interest. The outcome of case #111701135 has been the central theme of this website for years, but there’s a little known side story that everyone (including this author) completely forgot about.
You see, BEFORE the Davis County Prosecutor’s office formally filed charges against Andy, in fact before any of this was even in the hands of the Davis County Prosecutor, it was first handed over to the Utah Department of Securities. That’s right, for those of you who don’t remember, the ORIGIN of this case, immediately after the Bountiful police department, was a state agency specifically charged with enforcing state securities and exchange law.
The Utah Department of Securities (UDS) reviewed the evidence handed over to them by the Bountiful police department very carefully and made a recommendation for prosecution to the Davis County Prosecutor’s office. Before the first hearing was ever held in case #111701135, Andy was required to appear before the Utah Department of Securities and to try to explain why he shouldn’t face disciplinary action by that agency. Andy met with the UDS and along with Allen Brady, made a complete fool of himself. Video and blog posts about that meeting can be found elsewhere on this website.
The UDS proceedings were ultimately put on “hold” pending the outcome of the criminal case against Andy. Everybody forgot about it, including me! I did make note the Utah Raves thread that was the predecessor of this website explaining that UDS would be holding a hearing immediately after the case was resolved to determine what acton (if any) should be taken against Andy, but that was the last time anybody has said or posted anything about those proceedings…until now.
Hold onto your hats and sit down!
Unfortunately for Andy, the Utah Department of Securities DID NOT FORGET ABOUT HIM!!! Just as they informed Andy back in 2011, UDS did in fact hold a hearing immediately after Andy filed his plea deal in Davis County’s 2nd District Court. That hearing was held on March 25th, 2015 @ 9:00am and Andy failed to attend.
On March 25th, UDS Enforcement officer David Hermansen filed a “recommended order on motion for default”, to which the presiding judge responded in the affirmative. On March 26th, that motion was granted and a default order was filed.
What the order states in brief is that (a) Andy Esquivel did in fact knowingly sell “securities”, (b) that those “securities” were fraudulent, and (c) Andy is responsible for the consequences of his actions. The Utah Department of Securities therefore ordered that Andy pay $16,325 in penalties! $3,250 was due immediately, while the remaining $13,000 could be reduced on a dollar-for-dollar basis by proof Andy Esquivel was instructed to provide within 30 days of reparations payments made to his victims. In other words, by April 25th, 2015 (two years and seven months ago), Andy was required to prove that he had payed something to his victims or he would be liable for the full $16,250. Andy never provided any such evidence, because at that time he had in fact not paid a dime in reparations to his victims. Thus, the full judgment currently stands.
In addition to the financial penalties against Andy, he is barred forever from selling securities in Utah or having any dealings whatsoever with licensed securities dealers. That means all the fundraising efforts Andy is currently undertaking for Smiley Heroes are illegal and will very likely get him further disciplinary action by UDS.
Before I wrote this post, I was under the impression that including child support, Andy Esquivel owed approximately $29,291.03 in various judgements and fines for his criminal activity. Now I understand that the actual amount is $45,541.03!
Andy, if you are reading this, do yourself a favor and contact the Utah Department of Securities at (801) 530-6628 immediately to make arrangements to satisfy this judgement. Reference case#SD-11-0033.
I will be updating the total owed on the homepage to reflect this new information. I’m sincerely sorry for not following up on the UDS case against Andy. I don’t know why it slipped my mind. At least we know exactly how deep of a hole Andy managed to dig himself into. At the rate he’s going, it will take him nearly eight (8) years to dig himself back out…good luck!
Andy has been reasonably good about making his monthly payments, although he’s been consistently two weeks late. He seems to be making payments with his girlfriend’s bi-weekly paychecks (there is no evidence that Andy ever got a job) so the payments have been arriving on the firs Friday of the month following Andy’s due date. Andy did make a concession to the court on Tuesday by making a partial payment of $250 after his hearing.
As I write this, Andy owes $8,368.02 in restitution and fines from his two felony fraud convictions and $20,923.50 in back child support. Both numbers are coming down steadily, which means that as Andy nears his 50th birthday he’s staring to grow up a little bit.
Keep up the good work, Andy! We’ll keep tracking your progress until you finally pay off everything you owe sometime in the year 2019.
UPDATE: Here’s Andy’s explanation of what happened Tuesday…
“I provided a signed letter from Sindy ManzanoPrez Esquivels mother to my attorney that read “I have asked my husband for $500 for my daughter Prez Esquivel for orthodontist.” Now the PROSECUTOR says and I quote “Your honor braces, that’s cosmetic come on, these guys need to get paid its been since 2011 we want $500.” My attorney got pissed and says “Your honor, Andres Esquivel is not asking to miss a month just at least meet him half way $250 this month and $250 next month.” Judge ruled in my incompetent favor… Now I know Allen Brady is going to add Sean Reyes, FBI and media so let me explain to you why this is a story. I knew it was cosmetic and my request should have got shot down. Here’s the GOD part of this great day, ITS NOT FOR braces its for a retainer for an underbite to help my daughter talk clearer when she does interviews for Smiley Heroes. She WORKS for free she deserves this but I can’t say that because prosecution won’t tell judge Connors that the incompetent man that we sent to a 90 day evaluation has been on Fox13 news again for his inventions that he created while we incarcerated him. And not just that, I really wanted to do this for my daughter’s birthday next month so thank you God for touching Judge Connors heart and keeping me from opening a can of wup ass on that prosecution team because my daughter was going to get her retainer.”
UPDATE: The courtroom audio of Andy Esquivel’s 2/28 and 9/26 court hearings are now available. See the links below:
No real surprises in the courtroom audio:
In February, Andy’s attorney admitted to the court that Andy didn’t have $13,000 to pay the reparations and fines he owes. The court therefore accepted an agreement reached with the prosecutor to allow Andy to make payments of $500 per month and to set a review hearing for September, before his probation period expired in October and Andy was sent to prison.
In September, Andy asked the court for a temporary payment reduction to $250 to pay for “emergency orthodontic surgery” for his daughter, at which the prosecutor scoffed that (duh) braces are not an emergency and the victims have been waiting since 2011 to get their money back. Judge Connors granted the temporary reprieve, but made an ominous statement to Andy in the process. In light of the fact that this case has been dragging on for over six years and that there’s still “…just over $9,000” left to pay in fines and restitution, Judge Connors told Andy in effect that his time is short. He stated flatly that “…this is an old case – we’ve got to wrap it up.” He added “…I encourage you to be out trying to find some way to to take care of this in a lump sum payment soon.”
Clearly (very clearly) the court is running out of patience with Andy Esquivel and with this case. Andy’s $500per month token payments are not going to tolerated for much longer. Andy tempted fate by pissing of this probation officer. He then baited the dragon by announcing to the court that he intended to come up with a wad of cash by last February to get this whole business taken care of once and for all. He’s been on a very short leash, but until now he hasn’t quite comprehended just how short that leash is. I warned Any on this blog that it was unwise to play games with the court…especially ‘chicken’. If Andy had never brought up the possibility of a lump-sum payment, the court might never have thought of it as a possibility. If Andy had followed the simple and reasonable direction of Probation Officer Roman Hentish, he would have had an advocate with the court who could plead his case and argue for leniency. As it stands, Andy is facing eminent prison time if he does not turn up the heat and get his act together rapidly!
It’s a shame really. Andy is finally making a serious effort to atone for his previous mistakes, but it’s too, too late, and after too many second chances for the court to want to hear it. it’s time to pay the fiddler Andy. You made your prison mattress, now you get to sleep on it.
This is getting redundant. Andy missed his March 24th $500 payment to the court. Nothing unusual here – Andy never complies with any arrangement he makes with the court. I’m wondering how long he can keep this up before he’s held in contempt. It’s just a matter of time before they file another warrant for his arrest and drag him before the judge to explain.
It must suck to be broke and unemployed.
UPDATE: Andy made the payment (late) after all. His new balance is $32,779.82 – including child support. We’ll keep tracking both.
Here we go again..
Poor Andy. One of these days he’s going to realize that he can’t string the courts along forever. Sooner or later he’s going to have to get a job and pay what he owes. it’s not that much money. You would think he would just pay the bill and be done with it. Oh well.
Andy is flat broke. He is unemployed. He lives with his mom. He’s collecting a few hundred dollars a month in unemployment (see this unemployment report which Andy filed with the court in November). He’s got judgments against him of over $37,000, including $24,000 in back child support. He’s been convicted of two felonies and has only narrowly avoided jail time. Yet in spite of all this, Andy keeps playing with fire!
In Tuesday’s hearing before Judge Connors, Andy was presented with the facts. He owes over $13,000 in restitution and fines, he was allowed to make payments of $500 per month, he failed to make those payments (because he couldn’t afford it) and now he’s $1,550 behind. The judge is giving Andy a lot of rope. He gave Andy one last chance to make arrangements with the court after Andy blew off his probation. Andy was in a pickle. He needed to explain to the Judge how he was going to catch up in order to keep from going to jail.
Promise Judge Connors that he’ll have the entire $13,203.71 (and counting) paid off within the next 45 days. Here’s a guy who crying to ORS because he can’t afford to pay $460 a month in back child support, has no verifiable employment, doesn’t own a car (and doesn’t even have a valid Utah driver’s license, so he couldn’t drive one if he did), lives off of his girlfriend, and yet he’s promising the court that he can come up with $13k in a little over a month? Not only that, he’s literally betting his freedom on it.
So on February 28th, Andy is going to walk into a 2nd District courtroom and explain to the prosecutor and the Judge why (a) he lied to them about being able to cough up a wad of cash thick enough to choke an elephant, (b) why he hasn’t been making his agreed upon payments for the last four months, and (c) why they shouldn’t violate him to jail immediately and throw the key into the Jordan river.
GOOD LUCK with that, Andy.
Here’s the courtroom audio for those who are curious.
Andy apparently thinks this can go on indefinitely. He seems to have convinced himself that if he throws out enough BS and plays dumb long enough, the court will eventually get bored and let him walk. Unfortunately for Andy, courts are patient and courts are final. He may be getting a lot of rope, but that’s not for him to escape with – it’s for him to hang himself with. At some point (after the very last bit of doubt has been erased) the courts will clamp down and Andy will feel the sting.
In the meantime, Enjoy your freedom, Andy. You have 42 days to prove you’re real (which you’re not). After that, this blog is going to get really entertaining.
UPDATE: Andy showed up with eight hundred bucks ($800). Court audio coming soon.
As everyone who has been reading this blog knows, Andy Esquivel is a deadbeat dad. He has seven (7) illegitimate children by at least three different mothers and he refuses to take financial responsability for any of them. The four he lives with are supported financially by their mother because Andy refuses to get a job. One was taken from him by the state and placed in protective custody (later adopted) and his two oldest kids have been cared for by their mother with absolutely no financial support at all from Andy.
A few years back Andy was arrested and forced to stand trial for failure to pay back child support in Colorado. Rather than pay the required fines and serve court ordered community service (too much like a job for Andy) he fled the state and now lives in Utah. Two separate cases were filed against Andy for back child support here, One in Davis County, where Andy originally settled, and another in Salt Lake County, where he fled to avoid harsh probation terms for the three felonies that are the subject of this blog.
As of this writing, Andy owes $24,184 in back child support (leniently calculated as if Andy had earned minimum wage for the first 18 years of his first two children’s lives). He has been making payments lately (no choice there since he’s collecting unemployment and the state garnishes those payments to satisfy past judgments from state agencies like ORS), but those have barely made a dent in the amount he owes. For more details, see this unemployment report which Andy filed with the court in November which shows that ORS is taking half of Andy’s unemployment.
Here are the case files for the two child support judgments against him:
Andy is somehow convinced that the child support case against him is part of a conspiracy orchestrated by this website. Nothing could be further from the truth. We didn’t have two kids out of wedlock, and we didn’t force Andy to ignore his financial obligations as a father to his two oldest children. This website in fact has nothing whatsoever to do with Andy’s child support woes, we just report them as a matter of fact. That said, here is a video link Andy recently posted of himself trying to talk his way out of his obligations:
In this video you can hear Andy trying to convince ORS that he sent them a check for $5,000. In reality, Andy never sent the check, he merely posted a picture of a check online and argued that he should get credit for the posting. Apparently, Andy doesn’t realize that posting a picture of a check and mailing it to the state agency responsible for collections are two entirely different things.
Andy also reveals in this video that he hasn’t had a valid driver’s license since 2012. No wonder he can’t find a job – it’s hard to convince an employer to hire you when you can’t even drive yourself to work.
It is a shame that Andy finds it so hard to come up with the money to satisfy all the judgements against him ($37,386.95 in total, a small fraction of the amount he’s stolen or neglected to pay), but it’s his own fault. If Andy Esquivel would simply get a job his life would be a heck of a lot easier. Unfortunately, Andy is allergic to work and refuses to obtain gainful employment anywhere. He’s full of excuses and lies, but sadly lacking in common sense.
Andy, here’s a hint for you (since I know you read this blog) – if you get a job, ORS might take a little more money, but it’ll be a much smaller percentage of your paychecks. Just go to work like everybody else. In almost no time at all, you’ll find that your victims are all paid back, the court is satisfied, and ORS might even cut you a break on your payments. Grow up and the world will work with you! Keep being a jerk, and it’ll only get harder to stay out of jail.
Those of you who have been following this blog for the last…I don’t even remember how long ago this started…anyway, Xtagged fans will wonder why I even bothered to post this because it’s so redundant. That said, another warrant has been issued for Andy Esquivel’s arrest. Ho-hum, what else is new?
The warrant was issued yesterday by Judge Connors because Andy neglected to show up for his January 10th case review hearing. Cash bail has been set at $5,000, which means Andy cannot bond out. He has to cough up $5,000 in dead Presidents or they’re going to lock him up until Judge Connors has time to ask him face-to-face why he isn’t complying with his court managed probation.
For those of you who don’t read this page often, let’s review how we got here: Andy plead guilty to two felony counts of securities fraud. He was sentenced to two five-year jail terms, which were suspended on condition that Andy comply with certain conditions of his probation. Those conditions included (a) getting a job and (b) paying fines, restitution, and interest. Andy was assigned a few probation officers, but he screwed that up by giving his PO the finger online. The court was lenient and allowed Andy to continue court-managed probation, but the terms were strict – pay $500 per month OR ELSE!!!
A hearing was set for January 10th to review Andy’s progress. Unfortunately, Andy has made no progress, so it was more than likely that Judge Connors would have greeted Andy with handcuffs and at least six months in jail. Andy could have shown up and plead poverty (after all, he’s currently collecting unemployment), but he chose to skip court altogether and take his chances. He is currently $1,550 behind on his payments to the court, which is a bad thing.
“The Defendant is not present and is $1550 past due on his financial obligations. The Court orders a $5000 cash only bench warrant for his failure to appear.”
Another review hearing has been set for January 17th, at which time Judge Connors will probably order Andy in absentia to serve a bunch of time in jail. He’s collecting unemployment checks right now, so it isn’t as if the state will have any trouble picking him up for his date behind bars.
Personally, I don’t know what Andy is thinking. This isn’t so hard – get a job, pay your child support, pay your fines, and pay your victims back. It’s only $500/mo. so I don’t understand why this is so hard. Andy’s life would be so much easier if he would just bite the bullet and get in line. Unfortunately Andy just isn’t willing to grow up.
As you can see below, Andy has responded to this post, both here and on Facebook. It’s pretty funny actually – on the one hand, Andy claims that he’s too broke to pay his fines and reparations because he doesn’t have a job, is collecting unemployment, and half his unemployment is going to pay back child support. On the other hand Andy claims to have a full time job working “graveyards” as his excuse for not showing up to court on January 10th.
Andy, you can’t have it both ways. Either you have a job or you don’t. For my money, I’m betting you’re unemployed. The fact is, you can’t collect unemployment if you are working “full time”, and you yourself admitted that you’re collecting unemployment, so…
I understand your dilemma. If you’re working, then you can afford to pay the court the money you owe. If you’re not working, you can plead poverty to the court, but you can’t afford to feed your family and you risk going to jail for a very long time. It’s a risky game you’re playing. I for one suggest you (a) get a job and (b) tell the court exactly where you are working (c) provide proof of your gainful employment and (d) start paying your fines. It’s the only way you’re going to stay out of jail.
According to court records, Andy is now in violation of the court order that he continue to pay the courts both restitution and fines (which he agreed to in order to avoid going to jail when he violated his probation for the last time) and is now on a path that will lead him back to jail.
According to the courts, Andy now owes $800 in back payments. He’s missed the last few and his last attempt to pay the court actually resulted in a bounced check! (dude, who bounces a check to the court?)
At any rate, Andy must pay his past due balance immediately or the case will be referred back to the judge (who no doubt by this time is getting tired of continuously reprimanding Andy). A warrant for Andy’s arrest will be issued, he’ll be found in violation of even his last ditch court managed probation, his drivers license will be suspended (assuming he even has a license) and even if Andy makes bail, the judge will likely send him to prison for the next few months to demonstrate to Andy that the court is serious.
Hey Andy, I know you read this so I’m going to give you a little hint – stop jacking off with your stupid smiley hero cartoons, GET A JOB, pay your fines and restitution, take Judge Connors seriously, and stop scamming people! If you do that then maybe you’ll be able to live a normal life with your five illegitimate kids and that little illegal immigrant you refuse to marry.
At any rate, it’s clear by now that Andy Esquivel will never learn. The guy is a glutton for punishment who keeps kicking the beehive thinking this time he won’t get stung. Good luck with that buddy.
Below you will find a complete list of Andy Esquivel’s hilarious scam videos…all 94 of them! I tried to sort them from most to least ridiculous, but frankly my head started spinning so I gave up. The best ones are at the top, but there are some gems towards the bottom as well. We’ll try to post full reviews of as many as we can as soon as possible.
Check the latest case log [link] for details of Andy’s status. In a nutshell, Andy’s fate is now fully in the hands of the court, since AP&P dropped him like a hot potato. His two 5-year suspended sentences are now on file and hanging over his head the minute he fails to follow the strict instructions of the court, which are to pay the $12,715 he owes in restitution and fees (plus interest) at a rate of $500 per month until the balance is zero. That’s it, pure and simple, cut and dry.
Andy seems to be making payments (for now) in spite of the fact that he has no job. He’s still making noise about this “Smiley Heroes” thing, but that doesn’t make much difference to the court. Personally I’m just glad Andy finally settled on a scam that’s so goofy and ridiculous that no sane person would give him the time of day. Some of the other scams Andy’s been pitching almost had a glimmer of plausibility (if you’re drunk) and so might have allowed Andy to steal more money from unsuspecting victims. Little cartoon characters saving the web is so stupid that all you can do is laugh, no matter how intoxicated you are.
Bottom line, Andy’s starting to pay for his mistakes. He has no choice if he wants to stay out of jail, but at least he’s starting to take responsibility for his criminal activity.
Andy paid $450 in victim restitution and then gave up. That’s not even one single full monthly payment that he agreed to, which is pretty pathetic!
Court records indicate that Andy is at least trying to make reparations payments to his victims, but only God knows where he’s getting the money. A recent employment check has revealed that Andy does not in fact work for Yakup Guntor at MBYG Home Builders as he repeatedly claims. In fact, a social security number search by ORS indicated that Andy isn’t employed ANYWHERE! Andy still owed tens of thousands of dollars in back child support and the state is eager to collect. no doubt Andy will continue to dodge the system until he receives another court order to perform community service and skips town like he did back in Colorado.
So, as usual, Andy is broke and unemployed (probably because with his record he is unemployable). Wherever Andy is getting the money to pay his victims back, it can’t be strictly legal. No matter, he has to keep paying if he wants to stay out of jail.
Good luck with that Andy.
People have been writing in asking what happened on July 12th. Sorry it took em so long to post this, but I’ve been busy with graduate school and haven’t been checking in on Andy’s case very regularly.
Most of you have noticed that Andy’s hearings have been delayed again and again. This was to give Andy time to get a few payments under his belt so that he could argue that he’s changed his behavior and doesn’t deserve to be sent to prison.
It’s worked so far. Andy made several payments in early 2016 and although he didn’t make a payment in June, he did make a $100 payment on the 12th and agreed to pay $500 per month until hes paid all his victims back in full. A review hearing has been scheduled for January 10th to make sure that Andy has in fact been making his payments and is in full compliance with the conditions of his probation.
We will see if Andy can keep this up, or if his ego derails the effort. To read the full text of his agreement, click this link to the evidentiary hearing minutes [PDF]. I’ll post a recording in a few weeks.
Andy is apparently not smart enough to realize that he’s been convicted of two felony counts of securities fraud and that he was sentenced to up to five years in state prison per count. The court was incredibly lenient on Andy and in lieu of prison, allowed him to enter a program administered by Utah Adult Probation and Parole (AP&P). The conditions of his probation were simple; pay your victims back, pay some fines, stay off drugs, get a job, and basically become a functioning member of society. All that was apparently too much for Andres ‘Andy’ Esquivel to handle, and he’s on his way back to jail.
Andy refused to keep his AP&P appointments, he failed drug tests, he blew off mandatory psychiatric and substance abuse counseling sessions, he lied about his living arrangements (which he was required to report as a condition of probation), he failed to get a job, he missed promised reparations payments and of course he antagonized his probation officer via email and online…a really dumb move!
As a consequence, on June 6th Andy’s probation officer filed a scathing violations report with the court explaining (in detail) Andy Esquivel’s pattern of non-compliant behavior. The full violations report can be found here [PDF]. The violations report was followed by a cause report in which Andy’s probation officer frankly recommended that Andy’s probation be revoked and that he be ordered to serve time in prison. That recommendation was detailed in this cause report submitted by Roman Hentish immediately after the violations report [PDF].
Judge Connors concurred with the AP&P cause report and on the same day, signed this cause order requiring Andy and/or his public defender to appear before the court and explain why his probation should not be revoked and Andy should not be sent to prison to serve his two five-year sentences [PDF].
As a condition of his probation, Andy Esquivel agreed to re-pay his fraud victims. The amount he was ordered (and agreed) to pay was $13,000. To date, Andy has repaid $1,590…which is far below the amount he owes. Unfortunately for Andy, he was dumb enough to verbalize to AP&P (and this account is transcribed in AP&P’s report to the court) that he no longer agrees with the court’s decision regarding reparations and intends to drag out repayment as long as possible so that he can potentially get out of it. I know, right? What kind of idiot actually says that to an appointed officer of the court? So the bottom line is Judge Connors has now seen and signed documents which quote Andy Esquivel expressing utter contempt for the court and for his own promise to re-pay his victims.
So where does Andy go from here? Jail, most likely. I don’t think Andy will ever wise up and realize his life would be so much easier if he would (a) keep his mouth shut (b) pay his victims back (c) get a job and (d) stop scamming people. Why does Andy find this so difficult? Because he’s STUPID!!!
Update: Sentencing hearing delayed until July 12th @ 10:30am.
We all know Allen Brady – he’s the mentally challenged side-kick of Andy Esquivel who helped Andy con his mother Georgia Brady out of $50,000 and then instead of helping his mother press charges, worked diligently to help Andy avoid responsibility.
Allen, as we all know, spent most of his career driving buses for his parent’s company Serv-a-Bus. Well, we’ve just learned (sorry we’re a bit late on this) that Serve-a-Bus and Allen’s parents were forced out of business by the US Department of Transportation in 2013 because they were deemed a threat to public safety.
“Safety is our top priority and we will not tolerate this kind of callous disregard for public safety by any transportation provider,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “These violations are especially egregious considering the company was transporting students despite being ordered to stop all operations.”
“There is no place on our highways and roads for bus and truck companies and commercial drivers that ignore safety and put the public at needless risk,” said FMCSA Administrator Anne S. Ferro. “FMCSA personnel across the country will continue to demand that drivers, vehicles, and companies comply with vital safety regulations that protect the motoring public.”
This is a sad story and I hate to be the one piling on, but frankly it’s instructive since the lack of attention to detail that sank this company is the same characteristic that continues to inspire Allen Brady to defend a known criminal who defrauded his own mother.
The latest from Andy is that he’s being set up my his probation officer who he claims lied about something – not entirely sure what. Anyway, while Andy was in jail, he launched handful of new technology ventures, one of which is called JudgeCon.com. The way this (fake) app works is judges load orders onto the website and then the cons (of which Andy is one) post their compliance via bluetooth or SMS text or something…or maybe they have their psychiatrists upload the reports, I don’t know.
Anyway, Andy then launched a follow-up app over the payphone in jail called “Cons Can Change (dot) com” which is probably a website devoted to the notion that convicted felons like Andy can straighten themselves out, stop lying, reform their sociopathic ways, get jobs, pay their child support, and move on. Of course Andy is the living refutation of that premise, but I’m sure it sounded good to his friends in the Davis County lockup.
Here’s the full text of Andy’s latest rant:
Daryl Acumen & my Probation officer Hentish of 4 months of my 1 year & 4 months of being on probation, made up lies to have my probation violated, so I had to spend 14 days in Davis county, my attorney told Judge Connors “We deny all Hentish states Andres Esquivel’s employer Yakup Gungor of www.DrHouseUtah.com is not only here today he came last week also Sir, (FYI- secretary (lee) made an error so I had to wait an extra week) and Andy’s previous Forman from Royal Builders Jason Ted Hunt is here also to speak up for Andres along with his friends and Family Marcella Esquivel Sir” as I looked back they all were waving at me:)
Yakup had all my receipts from my monthly payments & Hentish said I never went to evaluation but I uploaded eval at www.WiserTechnology.com along with videos of PO Hentish & Daryl emailing each other. Judge Connors released me immediately and made new court date for March 08, 2016 you all think Daryl Acumen will be there, LOL. So I met many men in jail that wanted to change they said probation officers screw with people like that all the time, so I told them lets invent together in these two weeks & OH did we, www.JudgeCon.com will be an app where on one side you download Judges orders & the other side the Cons compliances, example you need to go to a class, well when its completed your instructor sends message to you (completed) via text or bluetooth, you see your probation officer can’t lie anymore, thank you God & then we founded www.ConsCanChange.org from Davis county jail payphone the correction officers as witnesses, they all knew about www.WiserTechnology.com & were very inspiring themselves, thank you all & it did not end there Patrick asked if I could buy the domain www.AddictsCanChange.org for his cause, of course I did and we invented more apps “The tree of Life”, “Drug myself” & “Pure”! So am I mad that Daryl & Hentish lied, would you not run into a burning building to grab all the technology data that would save millions of lives before the devil burnt them out of existence, I DID & thank you God in the name of your son Jesus Christ, who ate with the sinners & tax collectors for they were in need of your light, Amen”
Always the same old Andy – oh well…

Andy Esquivel has been arrested (again) and is now in state custody. He was taken into custody just before noon on Monday, February 1st – booking number 201600817. His bail is set at $25,000 cash. He cannot bond out, he must pay the full amount to be released.
For those of us watching this drama unfold, this comes as no surprise. This is not the last time Andy will be arrested for probation violation, but because this is the first time it will be his shortest time in jail (30 days). Next time it’ll be 90 days, then 6 months according to AP&P guidelines.
I’ll post updates on Andy’s status and audio of the court hearings as they become available. My hunch, given how damning the report by Andy’s probation officer was, this won’t end well. Here’s the custody information website link.
UPDATE: Andy’s hearing before Judge Connors is scheduled for Tuesday, February 16th @ 9:15am.
UPDATE: Andy was released from jail on his own recognizance and a sentencing hearing has been set for March 8th @ 9:15am. At this hearing, based on what he is posting online, we expect Andy to claim that he has a job, that his parole officer is somehow ‘corrupt’, and that he needs a 6th PO who will be more sympathetic to his latest scam, SmileyHeroes.com.
UPDATE: The February 16th hearing was a short one, so we’re not going to bother posting the audio online.
UPDATE: Andy’s sentencing hearing has been postponed five times since his release, usually at the request of his public defender. The new hearing has been scheduled for June 14th @ 9:00am.
A $25,000 “CASH BAIL” warrant has been issued for Andy Esquivel’s arrest. The warrant was issued due to probation violations by Andy. “Cash Bail” means that Andy cannot get a bail bond for his release. He must come up with $25,000 in cash in order to stay out of jail.
This is a very serious situation. It means that Andy is subject to incarceration on sight by any officer in the state of Utah and he will remain in custody until he agrees to repay his victims. Even if he agrees to pay his victims back, he will remain in jail for at least 30 days plus the amount of time it takes for a judge to get around to hearing his case.
The progress report is most telling. In it Andy’s probation officer details not only Andy’s basic violations, but also his utter lack of respect for the law.
“A person’s behavior reflects their thinking, values and beliefs about themselves, others, and the world around them. Mr. Esquivel demonstrates a disregard for the feelings of others and a reduced ability to experience guilty shame. He is superficially charming and has shown a disregard for rules. He victimizes others to satisfy his own needs and expresses rationalizations for law violations.” – Roman Hentish, Supervising Officer
That is now in the official record and will accompany the recommendation by AP&P that Andy be returned to jail.
Sorry about the website down-time last week, but it was time to upgrade my server. This site is now sitting on a quad-core 3.3Ghz dedicated server with 16GB of ram, a 500GB primary drive and a 120GB solid-state (SSD) secondary drive. We also now have a shared hosting satellite account for backups and offsite up-time monitoring. You should see a significant bump in performance now as compared to the old server because the core OS is running on the SSD, which is about 10x faster than a standard hard disk. For comparison, note that PartyUtah.com (when I owned it) was hosted on a dual-core 2.4ghz dedicated server with twin 250GB drives and 8GB of ram, so Xtagged.co now literally has more horsepower than UtahRaves.com had at it’s peak! Fun times.
A judgement has been entered by the State of Utah onto Andy Esquivel’s record requiring him to pay $14,300 in fines and restitution for his Xtagged scam. Andy must submit to DNA, drug, and alcohol testing as a contrition of his probation for the next 36 months. He also needs to get a job. It’s been a long road, but Andy Esquivel was finally brought to justice – in no small part BECAUSE OF THIS WEBSITE!!! The conviction of Andy Esquivel is bitter-sweet in that only three of his numerous victims came forward to press charges (representing a little over 10% of the total money consumed by his various scams), but the results are very nearly the same. Andy’s mental infirmities and propensity for criminal behavior have been documented permanently for the record and future victims will avoid losses because of our efforts. Furthermore Andy’s existing victims have been publicly vindicated as Andy has admitted for the record that he is a pathological lying sociopath with absolutely no business sense whatsoever. After all the noise and smoke Andy made about a conspiracy against him, it’s a bit disappointing that in the end he admitted wrongdoing and avoided a humiliating public trial, but there’s always Castle and The Blacklist for entertainment so I guess I don’t mind. In the end Andy was arrested for assault, harassment, fraud, and sued for 18+ years of back child support…that pretty much sums up Andy Esquivel and his friends for the world (minus of course the drug use and alcoholism). You can read the final documents of Andy’s case here:
Steve Klemark, Allen Brady, Lasharielle Jenkins, and Ronald Dean Kelsay must all feel really stupid right now.
The full details of Andy Esquivel’s securities fraud plea agreement are now available for review. Due to a glitch in the court records database, we weren’t able to access this document until just recently (the court attached the wrong plea agreement to Andy’s case file).
The full agreement can be found here.
The agreement details the conditions of Andy Esquivel’s release on Probation, including the requirement that he pay full restitution to his victims, get a job, and submit to random drug and alcohol testing for three years. Once (IF) Andy completes his probation, the prosecutor cites no objection to reducing the two 3rd degree felonies Andy was convicted of to Class A misdemeanors – still serious crimes, but reduced one level in weight. Probation is to last three (3) years.
Below please find a transcript of the guilty plea submitted by Andy Esquivel via his public defender:
“During the period of time from March 2008 through April 2009, [I] operated a business known as Xtagged. [I] represented Xtagged was an Internet based business in which the user created an online profile for meeting & dating. During that period of time [I] met with 3 individuals. At various meetings, [I] represented that Xtagged was a registered LLC, that Xtagged was patented & the Dept. of Motor Vehicles had authorized Xtagged to communicate and access their databases. That MySpace, Michael Jackson & Google were interested in purchasing Xtagged & that in near future Xtagged would become a public corporation.
Based upon [my] representations, these individuals purchased ‘stock’ in Xtagged. They did not receive any return on their investment as promised and [I] failed to return their investment when asked. A records search showed Xtagged was never registered in the state of Utah and no patents held in it’s name. The DMV was contacted and they never gave permission for Xtagged to access their database. No evidence that any offer to purchase Xtagged was made or that it ever went public.” – Andres Esquivel (8/19/2014)

Here’s a brief outline of Andy’s various lies:
This is a remote post from the airport so will be brief:
Andy was sentenced today. 90 days in jail with credit for the 200+ days served so far. Andy was ordered to pay $500 in legal fees, $800 fine, and was ordered to pay $13,000 in restitution to his victims!
Andy was sentenced to 36 months probation, during which time he cannot use alcohol or drugs, must submit to random drug and alcohol testing, cannot enter establishments where alcohol is sold (clubs and bars), and must get and keep a job! He must also refrain from all criminal activity.
Andy immediately posted this video claiming that he only took the plea deal to keep Ryion, Kyle and Chris from making billions of dollars by suing Bump.cpm – whatever. Here’s a guy who couldn’t even afford a private defense attorney…how the hell is he supposed to be able to pay someone to help him sue a well funded startup?
Andy Esquivel has plead Guilty to two felony counts of securities fraud! No matter what he says from here out about the “conspiracy” against him, the fact is he’s a criminal, a serial felon, and a crook.
The plea followed over six months in custody including a stint at the Utah State Mental Hospital where after treatment Andy was found competent to stand trial for his crimes. As part of Andy’s plea deal, a single 2nd degree felony count of securities fraud was dropped. Andy remains free on $10,000 bond pending his sentencing on October 7th.
Andy celebrated his release from jail by posting on Diigo and bashing those who have helped see him charged with his crimes. He’s tried to hitch his wagon to Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow by implying that somehow the conspiracy against him is related to their recent indictment. The reality of course is that Andy’s case is in no way related to anything but his own criminal activity and that there is no ‘conspiracy’ against him, only a desire to see him pay for his crimes.
The maximum penalty for each of the two 2nd degree felonies Andy has now confessed to is 5 years in prison. Given Andy’s behavior prior to and during his trial, the victims and the authors of this blog obviously hope that Andy is sentenced to the maximum. He’s certainly proven that he has absolutely no remorse for his actions and will continue his criminal activity as soon as he is free.
I will post the audio from Andy’s competency hearing as soon as it arrives. In the meantime, stay tuned for more psychotic rants from this pathological lying sociopath and the brainless minions who worship him.
Before Andy Esquivel was institutionalized, he sent a Facebook message to his cousin Edward who’s mother Andy ‘spoofed’ on LinkedIn to make himself look more legitimate. We recently received a copy of the rant and I thought it was appropriate at this time to post it. The reason this post is interesting is that it discredits Andy’s claims that he’s an innocent victim of racism. The thing about sociopaths is that they always accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of (notice Andy’s prominent use of the “N” word towards the end of this rant).
Note: caps and punctuation mistakes are Andy’s, not mine.
Edward this is Andy I came back at 5:00am not because I am tweaking as you say on YOUR Facebook PAGE…. I am working on WEBSITES not Facebook bro you see most people are asleep NOT YOU bro, so we work on the WEBSITES at graveyard look at my email to my attorney I will post :0x Sindy sent that for a reason just wait for it…… I’ll post email next! (But what I want to say most Mista GANG BANGA EDWARD GONZALES – Mom family, Jesse in Denver you watching this shit, Edward even IF I was guilty, I am NOT but let’s just say I was for your sake “YO WTF YR MIDDLE NAME SNITCH!” Edward made deal for himself with Daryl) Aunt Chue when Edward was 5 he used to walk around asking all of us to play cards, it was cool until you beat Edward you all remember he would freak and say we are cheating all because Edward lost! See a doctor bro (OH don’t worry I will bring you up Edward) look at my next post u will get it. Edward you lost state only has 3 wits racist Ryion, Kyle and Chris they used their NIGGER DARYL to try and help my ex father in law North Salt Lake City Chief of police Hanson bring down Xtagged: https://www.diigo.com/item/…/7ra2 FYI Daryl never knew any of this that’s how he got caught up in this and dragged you guys in, Daryl & Edward stated I scammed hundreds of people and I never filed for patent: https://www.diigo.com/item/…/9hrw You’re a fool Edward this money BILLIONS is a dynasty for our family you already seen the patent paper work stop acting dumb. Your mom owns 6% & you nothing that’s why you’re mad, just shut-up until trial yr digging deeper hole.
FYI- Nobody blog for me anymore period not even film people Sindy was the only one.
You’ll also notice Andy proudly proclaiming that his fake businesses (which includes a goofy little ripped-off cartoon website called ‘Smiley Heroes’) are worth “BILLIONS”. Honestly, if I wasn’t documenting this guy’s psychosis, nobody would believe any of it.
Today Andy Esquivel is appearing before Judge Connors for a review of his mental evaluation at the State Mental Hospital. The results of the evaluation (which are confidential) were transmitted to the court yesterday. There are two possible outcomes: either Andy will be found “crazy” and sentenced to more time in a state mental institution or he will be found ‘competent to stand trial’ and the felony securities fraud trial will commence.
Andy’s girlfriend posted on Wiser Technology recently that the evaluation cleared Andy for trial, so that’s most likely the case. The real question is whether or not Andy will be released after spending most of this year in either prison or a padded cell. Above is an illustration drawn by one of Andy’s fellow inmates depicting Andy ranting to other inmates while guards look on. We can assume that this image is an accurate depiction as it comes from the inside and was drawn by a skilled caricature artist (who just happens to be in custody). The sketch also matches images of the prison which can be found online.
I’ll post as soon as we know the outcome of today’s hearing for sure and after that I’ll be sure to also post audio of the hearing for everybody to enjoy. In the meantime, stay tuned.
UPDATE: Andy is still in the custody of the Utah State Mental Hospital. He was not transferred to court today, although the court did receive his competency evaluation. In that evaluation (the details of which are confidential) Andy was found competent to stand trial. The hearing was continued until August 19th (next week) at which time the judge will determine whether to release Andy or to hold him in Davis County Jail pending trial. Andy will remain in the custody of the State Mental Hospital until that hearing.
Just in case there was any remaining doubt about whether Andy Esquivel is crazy and his various businesses were all thinly disguised scams, here’s the latest post on WiserTechnology.com. I haven’t checked that website in ages, but did today just for kicks. This image is all that is left of Xtagged, Wiser technology, and all the hard work of lunatics like Allan Brady, Shar Jenkins, Steve Klemark, and the rest. This is what’s come of what was supposed to be a milti-billion dollar venture started by a man now confined to a padded cell in a state mental hospital. THIS IS IT!!!
The word ‘Anti-climax’ just doesn’t do this image justice…
Andy Esquivel has been keeping himself busy writing letters from jail. He’s now been moved to a mental hospital, but it’s still interesting to see how Andy kept himself busy. Below is a link to several of these letters – including one from his “spouse” (girlfriend actually) and one complaining about his newest public defender. The letters are hard to read, but still fun.
Incidentally, I’m curious what Andy’s personal biographer Ron Kelsay is thinking right now. I’d give $50 bucks to see the look on his face when he reads these letters from jail and realizes that his documentary is never going to sell any tickets. I wonder what Allen Brady is thinking now that his dream of moving into a $2 Million dollar house with the proceeds from some lawsuit over Xtagged evaporate. I wonder what Steve Klemark is thinking now that he realizes he drove his wife to the brink by chasing a drug addicted con-man around for years. I wonder what Shar Jenkins is thinking right now, realizing that his dream of opening a night-club in Park City have vanished. Guys, you’re welcome to post your thoughts – we’re all dying to hear form you!
Update: I spent a lot of time trying to understand these letters and after way too much time immersed in Andy’s gibberish I realized that int he second (or third) letter, Andy is actually trying to convince the judge to recuse himself from this case and grant Andy a change of venue with a new judge. If that’s not a sign of pure desperation, then I don’t know what is.
Andy Esquivel has been moved from Davis County Jail to a mental hospital. He will be treated for his delusions and psychosis, then re-evaluated for sanity in August. If at that time he still thinks he’s a genius inventor who’s the target of a conspiracy to cost him millions of dollars and take his company away, then he’ll continue the psychiatric treatments until he’s cured.
In the meantime, someone should commit Allen Brady, Shar Jenkions and Steve Klemark, since they obviously suffer form the same delusions.
Our friend Andy Esquivel is currently wasting away in Davis County jail waiting to be sent to a padded cell at the Utah State Mental Hospital. He’s apparently not enjoying his stay very much because he’s lobbying through his girlfriend to be moved sooner rather than later. It sounds as if Andy thinks he’ll get better treatment in the mental hospital than he is currently receiving in jail. Here are the court notes on the most recent exchange:
04-16-14 Note: Clerk received a call from DEF’s spouse and family member
asking why DEF was not transported to the Utah State
Hospital yet. Clerk informed them that the prosecutor’s
office was advised by the jail that DEF is on the waiting
list, but he is #20 on the list. Therefore, has not been transported to the State
Poor Andy. It apparently still isn’t sinking in that he’s criminally insane and that society has no further use for him. Maybe he thinks he can con a psychiatrist into letting him go home early. Whatever is going on inside that warped brain of his, I’m glad it’s happening in jail instead of out on the street.
Andy keeps writing letters from jail. Here are the latest two. They’re pretty sad and pathetic, but also kind-of funny. In these latest letters Andy pulls out all the stops to convince the judge to let him out. “Mental institution, misdemeanors, anything but jail you honor!”
He even tells the judge that he’s got him on YouTube and and that the North Salt Lake Chief of Police is his father-in-law (which is a lie because Anyd’s never been married). Pretty sad the lengths to which a con-man will go to get out of a bad situation.
You guys will think this is funny: here’s a copy of a letter which Andy Esquivel wrote while in jail in Davis County. In this letter, Andy complains about both the prosecutor and his newest public defender. He also compares himself to Martin Luther King and brags that he marched around the jail yard all day on Martin Luther King’s birthday.
Here’s a copy of the letter [PDF].
It’s pretty sad and pathetic. I’d write more about it, but I’m really busy this week.
We just got the official commitment order [PDF] for Andy Esquivel. It’s pretty hilarious – basically says everything we’ve been saying on this website for years: Andy is delusional, doesn’t understand the charges against him, can’t comprehend the consequences if he is convicted, can’t assist the prosecution or make an intelligent decision about his defense, suffers from serious mental illness, etc.
If you read between the lines you also realize that what it’s saying is that Allen Brady hasn’t done Andy any favors by trying to act as his surrogate legal counsel. If Allen had a brain himself (and was trying to help Andy) he would have encouraged Andy to plead guilty years ago, to get a job, pay child support, and to pay his victims back the money he stole.

Just when you guys thought Andy would never post on YouTube again (because he’s in JAIL), Andy defies the odds and manages to get a video posted anyway. Boy, this guy REALLY doesn’t know when to shut up!
In this latest video, Andy convinces his girlfriend (he’s now using me as the excuse why he never married her in spite of the fact they have three kids together) to put him on speaker so she can record him from jail and post online. It sounds like he’s calling from the common yard at the Davis County jail because there’s lots of commotion around him.
Andy explains that he’s in jail of his own free will. That he asked to be sent to Jail on January 7th because ‘the prosecution has postponed his trial six times’…which makes perfect sense, right? Andy tries to put his own spin on his February 11th hearing claiming that he’s being committed to a state mental hospital because the Judge wants to prove he is sane, not for restoration of sanity because he is insane as is actually the case. He rambles on and on about the conspiracy against him, his million dollar lawsuits, all his inventions – basically all the delusions that are the reason he’s being held for restoration right now in the first place. He demonstrates in the space of five minutes that indeed the psychiatrists are absolutely correct – he is not mentally competent to stand trial and he is badly in need of psychiatric help.
Half-way through the video, Andy is interrupted by an inmate named “Boss” who tries to explain that in fact the fight he was just part of was not his fault and was nothing for his wife to worry about. The guy Andy got into a fight with should never have been let out of isolation because, like Andy, the inmate he fought with was is mentally disturbed. Andy also brags that he’s lost a lot of weight in jail (I guess he’s sensitive about his weight) and that jail isn’t so bad after all.
I never thought I’d live to see the day when Andy Esquivel is posting psychotic rants from behind bars, but here it is. He has no idea why he’s there, no idea what he needs to do to be released, and shows no signs that his delusions have abated. Between us, I think Andy is going to be incarcerated for a very long time, because he’s never going to admit that he’s a delusional mess and needs help. The more he resists treatment, the longer he’s going to remain in state custody and I personally believe that’s a good thing.
I wonder what Allen Brady, Steve Klemark, Shar Jenkins, and Ron Kelsay are thinking right now? “…Boy, were we stupid!”
At long last we’ve received the audio transcript [AUDIO]of the February 11th hearing in which Andy Esquivel was ordered “held for restoration” (of sanity) at the Utah State Mental Hospital. At this hearing Alan Brady also received a stern warning against continuing to pretend to be Andy Esquivel’s attorney.
It was an eventful hearing to say the least!
First of all, Andy’s public defender was not present at the hearing. He’s still very much in charge of the case, but it’s curious that he was not able to attend. Has Andy pissed off another public defender? Telling is the fact that before the end of this audio transcript we hear Andy meekly declare to the judge “…he lied last time, I don’t trust him” as the Judge continued to explain that all motions need to be filed through his attorney and could not be submitted willy-nilly to the court.
Which brings us to Alan Brady: As you all know, Alan Brady has been acting as Andy’s pseudo-attorney for years now, helping him draft legal-looking court documents and such to perpetuate Andy’s various schemes. Alan’s latest foray into make-believe legal work has been to draft a motion for dismissal on Andy’s behalf and to file it with the court. Alan apparently told the attorney assisting Andy in court on the 11th about thee motions he’d been drafting and filing and got spanked! We don’t obviously have a recording of the conversation, but the attorney mentioned several times in the audio transcript before the Judge that she told Alan in no uncertain terms that drafting legal documents and pretending to be an attorney (as he’s been doing for years now) is illegal. She states that she told Alan flatly (and reminded him indirectly several times in court) that Andy can draft motions if he wants to, but if Alan continued to do so, he could be charged.
It was actually telling how much time the court spent on this subject and I think everybody in that room knew Alan Brady was walking on very thin ice.
The state submitted a motion to have Andy held for restoration (of sanity) which the court accepted. Andy through his stand-in attorney saying that he’s been in jail for a long time and that he wanted his ‘bail’ reduced so that he could attend to some medical issues. The court (and his representation) explained that bail wasn’t an issue since he was being held for restoration and is basically going to be incarcerated until his various delusions are cured (you know, the ones where he’s a genius inventor who’s being persecuted by a shadowy conspiracy to cost the world millions and billions of dollars). In other words, either Andy admits that he’s a con-artist, that all his ‘inventions’ are fake, that Wiser Technology and Xtagged were basically scams and that he’s been lying all this time in order to screw people out of money, or he stays in the state mental hospital until the state gets bored and decides to drop the charges against him.
Once it started to sink in for Andy that he was likely to remain in state custody for a very long time, he he suddenly had a change of heart about those “misdemeanors and no jail time” that he’s been complaining that his attorneys tried to trick him into taking ages ago. “I’ll take the misdemeanors and no jail time then,” he said desperately to the end of the transcript, but as the court explained – it’s too late.
One thing Andy tried to do made at least some sense – he tried to file a motion (or rather Alan Brady tried to file a motion on Andy’s behalf) to strike the jury trial and switch to a bench trial where the Judge has more latitude to act. Unfortunately, Alan isn’t an attorney and the court made it clear to Andy that no such motion would be considered unless it came directly from his public defender. Ironically, Alan (and Andy) got the idea to strike the jury trial form this website. Your welcome for the free legal advice fellas. 😉
Andy Esquivel has been sentenced to a state mental institution until he is determined to be mentally competent to stand trial for three felony counts of securities fraud. He remains in custody at Davis County Jail and a competency evaluation has been set for August at which time Judge Connors will determine when the trial can proceed.
We’ve known for some time that Andy Esquivel was crazy and we’ve been saying as much here on this blog and on it’s predecessor websites for years. Only a lunatic could seriously claim to have invented such outlandish creations as an alcoholic energy drink that’s supposedly endorsed by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or an inflatable car cover that deflates your tires to spare your paint, or radioactive fingernail polish actuated tabled that uses blue-tooth to broadcast your complete medical history to everyone around you in a bar.
Once Andy has received the medication (and detoxification) he requires, the hope is that he will be able to accept responsibility for what he has done and the trial can move forward. If Andy is lucky his public defender will then be able to convince him top plead guilty to the charges against him so that he can serve his time and move on with his life.
Eventually Andy might even be able to become a fully functioning, gainfully employed member of society – one who pays taxes, child support, and lives by the fruits of his own labor instead of the ill-gotten gains from his various scams. One can only hope.
In the meantime at least, Andy Esquivel remains off the streets and more importantly off the Internet. He is no longer a danger to himself or to others. If we are lucky, then his equally delusional followers will learn a lesson from this long drama – in the end you can’t con your way into wealth. You have to add as much value to this world as you expect to take out of it.
Hear that Alan Brady, Shar Jenkins, Steve Klemark and John Steer? Get lives, get jobs, and stop chasing the quick buck. Oh yea, and leave those drugs alone!
As Andy has been found mentally incompetent to stand trial due to his obvious insanity, a hearing has been scheduled for August 12th to determine whether by that time he will be sane enough for the trial to continue.
More details to come – we’re waiting for the audio transcript of the February 11th pre-trial to understand the full details. Andy remains incarcerated in Davis County jail until further notice.
Case update available here: [PDF]
On January 7th a visibly agitated Andy Esquivel walked into court and faced Judge Connors after the first of two psychiatrists found him mentally incompetent to stand trial. According to the audio transcript which we acquired from the court, the first psychiatrist found that Andy suffers from delusions and is bi-polar. Andy’s defense attorney stated that a second mental evaluation will more than likely find the same, so the trial needs to be postponed until Andy can receive the medication (and possibly hospitalization) he needs.
The prosecutor protested the fact that Andy can’t seem to get himself together enough to meet with the second psychiatrist pointing out that Andy’s obstructive behavior has caused this case to drag on for a seeming eternity. He pointed out that the first pre-trial was more than two years ago and that Andy’s behavior has been going on for more than five years now. The prosecutor requested that the court incarcerate Andy to keep him from continuing to be a hindrance to the case.
Judge Connors agreed with the prosecutor, but before sending Andy off to jail allowed Andy one more chance to explain himself. Andy took the opportunity to launch into a lunatic rant in which he claimed he was not insane, that eh would not take misdemeanors, that he’s been called a liar in front of the whole world (as if anybody other than his victims and Alan Brady are actually paying attention to this trial), that he has some assorted motions that he swears he filed, blah, blah, blah… none of this impressed the judge at all, and when Andy said “I’ll go to jail right now to prove (something)”, Judge Connors only replied “Well, I’ll give you that opportunity in a minute.” While being hauled off to jail, ANdy continued ranting “I want protective custody! I’ve been threatened in this jail! Blah, blah, blah…” I was half expecting him to spout out that he was Napoleon or something.
Today was Andy’s pre-trial to discuss the results of the second mental evaluation in jail. Andy remains in custody, so I doubt the results were helpful to Andy’s case. As always, I’ll keep you all posted on what happens.
An audio transcript of the January 7th hearing can be found here: [AUDIO]
Before he was incarcerated Andy Esquivel posted this Youtube video which supposedly captures his mental evaluation for his supporters. The video is a hidden link and not available without a direct link. We have sources who were able to find the link so that we can share it here with you now.
This is about as silly as it gets. The person in the video who’s pretending to be Andy’s psychiatrist asks if Andy thinks this is all the result of a conspiracy. Andy repeats his lunatic refrain that it is in fact a conspiracy carried out by a bunch of bloggers (Kyle, Chris, Ryan, his ex girlfriend, etc., most of whom don’t blog) and “former employee” Daryl Acumen (who never worked for Andy). The voice essentially says “ok, I’m good” and then wraps up the interview.
If the video were in fact a recording of Andy’s actual evaluation (which is is not), then it would explain why Andy was subsequently thrown in jail so that the court could get a second, more thorough evaluation. of course, the video is staged and the second evaluation was required only to make sure both psychiatrists were impartial.
Today Andy Esquivel underwent a second psychiatric evaluation to determine whether he is sane enough to stand trial. The details of the evaluation were not made public by the court, but knowing Andy the results could not have been good. In all likelihood, Andy will remain in jail until the court is satisfied that he’s fulfilled the requirements to move forward with trial. He’s been incarcerated for three weeks now without bail, which is why none of his minions are posting on any of his blogs (Andy actually posts in the names of most of his supporters. Nobody who actually supports Andy has posted anything online in over a year.
I have it on good authority that Allen Brady, that brainless minion who still follows Andy Esquivel around like a lost puppy hoping for a billion dollar buyout of Xtagged by Google, recently tried to con his way into a $2 Million dollar house.
Reliable sources report that Allen Brady and his wife contacted a real estate agent in norther n Utah and asked for a walk-through of a house listed for $2 Million dollars. The listing agent, being used to scam artists and wackos trying to get a peek inside her multimillion dollar listings by posing as legitimate qualified buyers, became suspicious. She immediately asked Allen’s agent to verify that Allen did in fact have the means to purchase the house if she allowed him to walk visit the property. When pressed, Allen Brady reportedly told his agent that he and his wife were about to receive a milti-million dollar settlement in a lawsuit (expected to be completed by the end of this month) and that they would be purchasing the home in cash with those funds. He mentioned my name as being the defendant in the lawsuit.
Funny thing about the Internet today – Allen’s broker decided to check out the story. not only did he find out that there is no multi-million dollar lawsuit with me as a defendant or Allen Brady as a plaintiff, but he also found this website which gave explicit details about the scam to which Allen was referring and the fact that it’s founder is in jail right now awaiting a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether or not he is sane enough to stand trial for three felony counts of securities fraud.
Needless to say, Allen and his wife were not allowed to tour the house and other brokers were warned to be on the lookout for an over-wright drug addict pretending to be the recipient of a large legal settlement wanting to look at multi-million dollar homes.
I will say this for Allen Brady – he’s sure got a pair. It takes serious guts to try to scam your way into somebody else’s house by pretending that a guy who’s now been thrown under the bus by three of his defense attorneys is somehow going to be acquitted at the last minute and will close a lightening settlement for millions of dollars because his long line of fake products turned out to be real after all. Obviously somebody spent too much time at the recreational pot stores the last time he was in Colorado.
This website has learned that part of the reason the court decided to throw Andy Esquivel in jail until further notice was because he failed to report for his mandatory psychiatric evaluation as ordered. This letter [PDF] from psychiatrist assigned to evaluate Andy states that in spite of repeated attempts to make contact, Andy did not return phone calls or attempt to otherwise make contact.
We are still waiting for an audio transcript of the January 7th hearing and will provide more details as they become available. As of right now, Andy is behind bars and will remain there for the foreseeable future.
On January 7th Judge Connors of Davis County ordered Andy Esquivel held in Davis County Jail without bail until further notice. We’re still waiting for the audio transcripts of the hearing, but it must not have gone well.
On January 7th the court was scheduled to review the results of Andy’s mandatory psychiatric evaluations to determine whether he was competent to stand trial. Immediately after that hearing Andy’s mug-shot appeared on the Davis County jail website with a booking time of 10:49am.
The contents of Andy’s psychiatric evaluation are sealed so we don’t know what the psychiatrists found, but my hunch is that they determined Andy to be dangerous, mentally unstable, completely delusional, and incapable of telling the difference between fantasy and reality. It only remains to be seen whether the court will determine that Andy’s mental illness is serious enough to impede his ability to receive a fair trial.
Convicted felon and serial con artist Andres “Andy” Esquivel is in jail tonight after a hearing to review the results of his court-ordered mental evaluation. We’re still waiting for the clerks to update the notes on today’s hearing, but the net result is that Andy is in Jail, which is a good start.
As yu can see in this photo, Andy is getting fatter and still hasn’t found a solution for his acne problem. That said, it must really suck to be the father of six illegitimate kids (one in diapers) who’s broke, unemployed and stuck behind bars. We can’t share the results of Andy’s mental evaluation with you because they’ve been sealed by the court, but we can tell you that whatever was in those reports, it didn’t help Andy stay free today. He was booked at 10:39am, immediately after his court hearing this morning.
I’ve lost count of the number of times Andy’s been to jail since we started exposing his scams to the world and encouraging victims to file charges. My hope is that by the time Andy gets out he will have learned a lesson and will decide to become a contributing member of society rather than a leach.
Pathological lying sociopath and soon to be certified “nut” Andres “Andy” Esquivel has been ordered by the court to undergo mandatory mental evaluations by two court appointed psychiatrists in order to ascertain whether or not he is competent to stand trial. We’ve known for some time that his accomplice Allen Brady suffers from mild mental retardation and that his mental condition has been made worse by habitual drug use, but now the court has come to the conclusion that Andy Esquivel may be insane as well.
The examinations are intended to determine whether the extend of Andy’s mental retardation (or psychosis) is extreme enough to make him incapable of understanding the charges against him or the penalties he now faces. We’ve stated for some time on this blog that Andy is obviously crazy and clearly doesn’t understand that he’s on trial for three felony counts of securities fraud (serious charges) that could carry up to a maximum of 25 years in prison if he is convicted. Anyone who reads this blog will clearly see the extend of Andy’s delusions and will come to the conclusion that he is not mentally stable enough to tie his own shoes, much less function in society. Now we will have the benefit of professional opinion to determine for the record whether Andy’s psychosis is real or just an act.
Here is a copy of the court order requiring Andy to undergo psychiatric evaluation prior to the January 7th pretrial hearing which will decide his fate: Court Order requiring Andy to see a psychiatrist
Andy has been pretty quiet since the court openly asked the question whether or not he is insane. No longer is he blabbing wildly about conspiracies against him or claiming that some hearing that’s right around the corner will exonerate him and implicate the prosecutor and witnesses against him in some criminal wrongdoing. His blogs are silent, his YouTube channel vacant, his supporters now reduced to his live-in girlfriend (mother of three of his six (6) illegitimate children) and convicted felon mother. it’s a sad state of affairs for a guy who once bragged about having armies of attorneys, having invented technologies that could save thousands of lives, and of being on the verge of a “billion dollar” buyout from Google.
Good luck in January Andy. We hope the court offers to help you get the treatment you need. Maybe with the right medication and a top flight mental institution, you’ll finally be able to contribute to society and provide for your family. Nobody wants to spend their life being described (accurately) as ‘dead weight’.

At the pre-trial hearing on October 22nd, Andy Esquivel’s defense counsel asked for a continuance of the proceeding until January 7th to give the court time to ascertain whether Andy is clinically INSANE!!! If Andy is found to be CRAZY and therefore unfit to stand trial, he could be sentenced to time in a Utah mental institution.
At the request of defense counsel, this matter is continued to
1/7/2014 to allow the defendant to have a mental health evaluation
completed to determine if defendant is competent to stand trial.
The State will prepare the order.
The trial date will remain in place.
Irony: this is EXACTLY what we’ve been trying to say for years! Yes, Andy Esquivel is mentally insane and so is his chief accomplice Allen Brady. Both need to be institutionalized for their own safety and for the safety of others.
I’ll post audio of the pre-trial haring soon, but for now the trial date last set stands pending the mental health review.
I think that pretty much closes the case on Andy. When your own defense attorney states in court for the record that you’re nuts, it’s time to pack up shop and go home.
After begging Judge Connors to let him have a public defender again, Andy Esquivel got his wish and was assigned C. Markley Arrington. His temporary defense attorney was Albright while the court found someone who was actually willing to take the case. Andy claims he’s ok with a public defender (and no longer thinks there’s a conspiracy within the PD office to conspire with this blog and put him in jail) as long as they stop trying to talk him into taking a plea deal.
The bottom line is that Andy has a public defender again (he’s too broke to afford a private lawyer in spite of his repeated proclamations over the years that he has dozens of corporate attorneys between Denver and LA) and that attorney is under strict instructions from Andy not to entertain any pleas of ‘Guilty’ no mater how damning the evidence stacked against him.
Arrington, who represented Andy briefly while the court sought out Albright for his defense, asked the court on September 3rd to postpone the final PTC until September 17th, presumably to give him more time to formulate a defense or negotiate a guilty plea with Lyon. My guess is that next week Arrington will petition the court for another trial extension to give him more time to convince Andy to plead ‘Guilty’ and to give Andy more time to raise the money he’d be required to pay back to his victims as a certain condition of such a plea.
I’m not sure Judge Connors would go along with such a plan as he’s beginning to lose patience with Andy’s courtroom antics and stall tactics, but it’s the safest bet. Otherwise we’ll all be in court on October 16th for the quickest and most entertaining trial in recent memory. Unfortunately Andy won’t be able to call all the ‘witnesses’ he promised and almost certainly won’t be allowed to testify himself. It’s a shame Andy did such a piss-poor job representing himself – we were all looking forward to watching Andy make a complete idiot of himself at trial.
Sorry for the delay in posting, but we wanted to wait to post until the audio transcript from the August 7th hearing was available. That audio transcript is now available here (FLV), and it’s hilarious! Nothing is more satisfyign than listening to a respectable Judge and a professional attorney trying to deal with Andy Esquivel and losing their patience with his ineptitude.
In this hearing, Andy begins by saying he’s finally ready to “take the lawyer”, meaning a public defender. Unfortunately for Andy (and the prosecutor points this out) he was already offered a second public defender but, like an idiot, he told the court flatly that he refused to accept the help of the public defender’s office because he thought they were involved in a conspiracy against him.
Andy continuously claims to have filed a motion for discovery with the court, in spite of the fact that the clerks office has no record of such a filing. Judge Connors at one point becomes exasperated and just breaks it down for Andy: (11:45) “Mr. Brady put your arm down…Mr. Esquivel, I don’t know how many times we need to have this discussion. You cannot just continue to represent yourself and ignore all of the court’s rules!”
Andy blabs on and on about how he’s now willing to take an attorney, but the prosecutor pointed out that we’re now months down the road from the date when Andy lost his first public defender and refused another and he doesn’t believe that another attorney will be ready by trial. “His conduct in the state’s opinion is destructive and it’s delaying tactics.”
At the end of the day, the Judge told Andy to file a proper discovery motion by COB Friday (which he never did). Andy then told the Judge “if you give me the discovery then I’ll hire my own attorney,” after which Andy filed a financial affidavit [PDF] claiming that he’s broke and can’t afford an attorney. Andy admits in the affidavit that he hasn’t worked since June 2009, that the highest he ever earned was a measly $12/hr., that his girlfriend (who he falsely claims is his “wife) doesn’t work, that he has no assets (not even a car) and that he pays no rent. Oh, here’s Andy’s contact information in case anybody wants to sue Andy in civil court:5789 Middlewood Ave. Kearns, Utah 84118 (801) 819-5126
The Judge told Andy that at this point he has no intention of postponing trial anymore. The current trial date is October 16th, 2013. My hunch is that the prosecutor is going to object to Andy’s request for counsel because (a) there’s no time for the new public defender to review the case before trial and (b) because Andy’s affidavit is completely false…Andy didn’t even list how much money he spends on rent in the document, even though in his latest video he’s bragging about his new house.
You guys need to just listen to the hearing. I’m tired, and it was too funny to adequately convey in a blog post. In the end, Andy looked completely inept…which of course he is. Andy’s motion to dismiss makes him look even more inept. The fact that he’s now begging for an attorney makes him look pathetic on top of inept. Oh boy, at least we’re nearing the end of this trial and Andy will soon either plead guilty or be convicted of fraud.
The motion hearing scheduled for yesterday was postponed until August 7th. We would have posted this sooner, but we wanted to see what Andy would post after he showed up for court and found out there was no hearing. Usually Andy goes ballistic and writes a 50 page email ranting about conspiracies and the like whenever there’s a postponement like this one. In this case, Andy’s annoyance at wasting his gas to drive to court first thing in the morning hit with a ‘squish’ and no mass email was sent out to “the media” blaming the delay on corrupt prosecutors or shadowy government agencies looking to stop him from saving the world. As always, the latest court updates (including this postponement with details regarding the reason for the delay) can be found here [PDF].
In the meantime Andy figured out how to file a discovery motion and did so on Monday. He even went to the court with Allen to file the document himself, which is impressive. Too bad he gave the court a fake phone number or he’d have known that there was no court on Tuesday. The postponement was filed on Monday while Andy was int he building, but when the clerk tried to call Andy there was no answer. Andy seems very eager to get his hands on the prosecutor’s witness list, and is now referring to all his fraud victims as “TRAITORS” on a regular basis.
Nothing else new to report. Andy’s been rather quiet since getting sentenced in Colorado to serve 64 hours of community service for failing to pay back child support. Andy is so intent on not working that he even claims to have moved back to Utah to avoid the sentence. Don’t worry Andy, it’ll be waiting for you when you get out of prison and return to Colorado.
Well, it’s official – Andy Esquivel won’t be allowed to call any witnesses at his jury trial in October. In fact, Andy won’t be able to present any evidence of consequence at his trial in October, so he’s essentially screwed.
On June 10th Judge Connors signed a motion to compel [PDF] filed by Prosecutor Nathan Lyon which gave Andy until May 21st to provide the prosecution with full details of all his witnesses and all evidence Andy intended to present at trial. Andy failed to comply. The list Andy did provide was incomplete and the witnesses all found to be irrelevant to the case. Andy’s evidence was likewise found to be completely irrelevant to the charges against him.
The motion to compel signed by Judge Connors EXPLICITLY states that any evidence not provided to the prosecution by May 21st will not be permitted at trial! May 21st was over a month ago, so Andy has missed his deadline to present any evidence which could support his defense. Since nothing that Andy has provided up until now will help him at trial in October, Andy basically won’t have a defense in October.
(No lawyer) + (No defense) + (No evidence) + (Refuses to admit he did anything wrong or to pay his victims their money back) = Andy Esquivel is definitely on his way to prison in October. Good luck with that, Andy!
Those of you who enjoy Andy Esquivel’s threatening blogs and emails as much as I do will recall that in recent weeks Andy has made a lot of noise about a “conspiracy” between his ex girlfriend and this blog to block him from the ‘millions and billions’ of dollars in potential profits he could have made if his various scams had been able to materialize. Lately he’s been claiming that last Saturday was D-Day for the conspiracy to finally be exposed and that everybody involved was going to jail, including his ex. Last week he posted this nonsensical threat:
Hey dumb-ass they want me to have public defender so when I win they don’t look as bad Dee-Dee-Dee I am going to take this all the way your going to prison Daryl & this Friday Denise has to answer to the Judge here in Colorado about you and her… so keep manipulating and still prosecutor LYON has not released his witness list with hundreds more like 3 of witnesses Daryl God Don’t Like Ugly OH SMILEYHEROEScom :)X
Well last Friday was in fact a court hearing for Andy – one in which he needed to explain to the courts why he still hasn’t paid a dime in child-support in spite of the fact that he’s
Now, we all know Andy as a lazy, good for nothing, scamster with a habit of telling untruths to survive and of stealing money to feed his drug addiction. Knowing this much about Andy, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that as son as Andy was sentenced he immediately went about crafting a story to get him out of the ruling. “But your honor, I’m moving to Utah on July first, so I can’t do no community service,” Andy reportedly told the judge in the case. In a show of mercy that Andy has become accustomed to and now expects from state courts, the judge gave Andy 30 days to prove he’s left the state of Colorado for good before he must begin serving his sentence. If Andy fails to provide proof that he’s moved, then he will be recalled to the court for a stiffer sentence.stolen a small fortune from investors from California to Colorado. Andy showed up on Friday prepared to impress the judge with his sob-stories explaining that it’s impossible for him to get a job because of this website, but she apparently wasn’t having any of it. Instead of buying into Andy’s claims that he can’t work, the judge did the unthinkable – she gave Andy Esquivel a job…
Sixty four (64) hours of community service to be exact!
My hunch is that Andy isn’t moving anywhere and that his please to the court are just a stalling tactic to get out of doing any real work. Andy can’t picture himself picking up trash by the roadside in a bright orange vest and hard hat any more than we can picture him as CEO of a multi-million dollar tech start-up. The mere thought of doing manual labor terrifies Andy – probably more than jail does. We’ll have to see how this plays out, but my hunch is we’ll have another child support case update for you here in a month and that it will read something like this – “Colorado judge loses patience with Andy Esquivel and sentences him to 30 days in jail for failing to comply with an order to begin community service immediately.
Then again, Andy might actually be dumb enough to leave Colorado in the hopes of avoiding these child support charges altogether. What he doesn’t realize is that Utah has even stricter child support laws that Colorado does and he already owes over $20,000 in back support in this state before he arrives (more will be added for every month eh lives here). I think Idaho would be a better choice for Andy because he doesn’t have a record there. Here in Utah the police are all to familiar with Mr. Esquivel and they’re not likely to give him a pass while he unpacks his moving van.
Hey Alan, since your boss (pathological lying sociopath, serial criminal and convicted felon Andres “Andy” Esquivel of Lakewood Colorado) hasn’t received his copy of this motion by Davis County Prosecutor Nathan Lyon, I’ll help you guys out and share my copy.
PS – you can still call Logan Laws if you want, but note that Logan isn’t going to help your case because he knows Andy is a criminal just like the rest of us and he isn’t afraid to tell that to a judge and jury.
To say the least, it’s been an interesting couple of weeks since Andy’s last pre-trial hearing. We’ve got a lot to cover, but I’ll try to get through it all as quickly as I can.
First of all, a new date has been set for Andy’s securities fraud trial. The fireworks begin on October 16th and will continue for three days. As always you can find the latest trial updates by clicking on any case update link [PDF] you find on this website. The trial is stilled set up as a ‘jury trial” rather than a “bench trial” because Andy isn’t smart enough to know that the only chance he has of getting this case thrown out by the judge is if he reverses the decision by his previous “super lawyer” to take the case out of a judges hands and to wait for nine jurors (who aren’t likely to fall for his crap any more than we do) to pronounce him guilty.
As reported last month on this site, Andy Esquivel recently sent out a mass email (to his supporters supposedly) in which he listed all the people he claims to want to call as witnesses at his trial. The list was prepared in response to a court order earlier in the month in which Judge Connors demanded that Andy comply with a reciprocal discovery motion by the prosecutor [PDF]and list all the people he intended to call as witnesses. We obtained the full list because one of the journalists who Andy insists on spamming is secretly preparing an expose on what a complete fraud Andy is and they were generous enough to share Andy’s email with us. We correctly reported last month that (a) Andy failed to include contact information for the witnesses he claimed he was calling and (b) almost nobody on Andy’s list had even the slightest relevance to the case.
Almost as if to confirm the astute insight of this blog, Prosecutor Nathan Lyon on Thursday filed this motion [PDF] with the court asking Judge Connors to throw out Andy’s entire witness list as irrelevant to the case against him and lacking even the most basic contact information on the people listed. The prosecutor reviews each name on the witness list (in much the same way we did on our blog post) and explains why each one is not only irrelevant to the case, but calls out the fact that Andy’s videos and links are “rambling and nonsensical.” The only “witness” that the prosecutor approved of was Logan Laws, who is frankly on deck to testify for the prosecution so it makes little sense for Andy to call him for the defense.
In short, Andy Esquivel just got emasculated by the prosecutor and told to go home and start over from scratch…and he is still posting ridiculous videos and sending out senseless emails. Here’s an example:
Mr Lyon I never published this witness list why did you let Plaintiff Ryion Butcher put this on his slander site:
I have attached a copy. Allen we never published, this is why Steve Klemark’s wife tried to commit suicide all the harassment from the plaintiffs & co-conspirators trying to scare me to take plea… Lyon stated oh well when I told him of Steve’s wife last year and the attorney brotherhood that Allen and I recorded Holje say to us looks like it does exist.
Your plaintiffs say J.King from I-safe is going to testify against me remember I told King about the slander/smear campaign since 2009 we recorded it so as soon as you finally release the list that Holje nor six month Albright ever got… I will address all 4 on the list one by one I sent motion by mail we are still waiting to see who’s on list all these lies will hit a wall very soon.
Ryion Butcher stated to Xtagged witnesses which is also witness tampering, that we have reported to Mr. Lyon Davis prosecutor more than once Allen Brady went to Mr. Lyons office LAST YEAR I have web cam of Mr. Lyon and I speaking about this and Ron the documentary film maker has video from last year on Mr. Lyon and Mr. Holje call Ron 720.233.4104 Ron Kelsay! I have attached a screenshot that Ryion posted of his blog attacking my family and Ryion tells people that the prosecutor is the one telling him to attack!!! Ryion tells Xtagged owners “Just say you are a security not an owner and we can take Andy down! I am now writing a letter to the judge informing him about all the PERJURY & WITNESS TAMPERING ALLEN BRADY can verify (1.801.819.5126) the plaintiffs have committed through out this trial and are still committing with the help of Mr. Lyon says Ryion Butcher, ITS ALL LIES I have a video uploaded at karmacause proving all, Ron has video that dates earlier. My family and the media don’t believe that you guys know what plaintiffs are doing to all of us and they say court is not in order! I told Mr. Lyon about Steve Klemark’s wife and much more! Now that Mr. Lyon knows Xtagged, Inc. paperwork is 100% real not to mention all the non non-disclosures plaintiffs signed and the multiple counts of perjury that the plaintiffs have committed, the damages that www.Xtagged.co causes will be at fault of the state.
Now what exactly does the above email tell us, other than the fact that Steve Klemark’s wife tried to kill herself because she finally realized that her husband was up to his chin helping a convicted felon execute numerous scams at the potential price of his own job with the Devner PD and she couldn’t live with the idea that he might go to jail too. Isn’t it interesting that a guy who threatened to release sex tapes of potential witnesses in his securities fraud trial to the media is accusing others of ‘witness tampering?’ Andy why is Andy so convinced that ‘his family and the media’ are on his side here? First of all, only one reporter in the media even cares that Andy is about to go to jail and most of Andy’s family have disowned him and his convicted felon of a mother as pariahs. Most are now reaching out to me (unsolicited) and expressing support for this website and sympathy for the victims of Andy’s criminal activity. When is Andy going to finally realize that the only people who think he’s innocent of these crimes are drug addicts like Alan Brady and fellow criminals like Ron Kelsay and that the only person facing jail time for his crimes is himself?
The bottom line is that this trial is almost over. With Andy Esquivel continuing to send impotent letters to the judge in this case (unaware that they’re doing absolutely no good) and being endlessly distracted by his own YouTube channel, Andy is sure to be convicted and sentenced before Christmas. The only question is how many years in prison is Andy going to get. I for one say the longer the better!
Pathological lying sociopath and convicted felon Andy Esquivel, who is representing himself in his own securities fraud trial, has published his witness list for trial.

Leonard was the first of Andy’s string of lawyers to abandon Andy as a client in disgust.]
Just in case there was any doubt left in the world that pathological lying sociopath and convicted felon Andy Esquivel is completely insane, here’s a post from one of Andy’s blogs to dispel all doubt.
Andy pitched how important a car plates network was for future “Driverless Cars” at CES show 2007. Allen Brady “How would you call a Driverless Taxi, on your smartphone “Just take a pic of the Taxi’s plate number & it will meet you at a safe pick-up area like The Long Rangers Horse” Xtagged system is worth Billions…
Now there are several obvious problems with Andy’s delusion. First of all, Andy never spoke at CES in 2007. In fact, I doubt he could even afford to go. If he did manage to scrape up enough money to go to Vegas that year and tried to talk to someone about “driverless cars”, he’d have been laughed out of the building. Second, there is no “Xtagged system”. Third, the idea of hailing a taxi by scanning it’s license plate before it arrives is ludicrous and not very well conceived. It’s the kind of thing only a drug addict like Andy Esquivel could dream up. Finally, “Lone Ranger” is spelled with an “E” not a “G” as in Andy’s post. The ranger was alone, not long like a pipe.
Andy is still clinging to the delusion that his imaginary company is somehow worth “Billions”, which is a fantasy he will likely still be clinging to when he’s shipped off to prison for securities fraud later this summer. The only question is whether Andy will try to impress the jury with his long list of imaginary inventions or whether he’ll go to jail quietly without so much as a whimper.
Recently Andy Esquivel posted the following image on one of his blogs and bragged that he finally paid his ex child support as ordered by the court. Here’s what Andy wrote:
Amount edited to save Denise Bartlett the shame:'( I couldn’t pay child support in Denver to force Judge to hear my case of Slander, Extortion, Conspiracy etc. & Daryl 04-03-2013 the Co. Judge noted it all:)x BUSTED;)x I am on my way to see twins this week after 5 years, Denise Bartlett kept me from the twins for the amount on this money order, NOT:)x Denise did it to conspire with Daryl’s Xtagged Smear/Slander campaign:'(
That was last week, and the Utah Office of Recovery Services finally got the money and we just got the details about the amount sent….it was FIFTY BUCKS!!! ($50). Now, some of you will recall that the Judge in Andy’s child support case ordered Andy to pay $320 per month in support, plus $50 per month in back payments to make up for the $320 per month he was supposed to be paying since November 2011, all of which is ON TOP of the $20,000 (plus interest) he still owes Utah ORS. That means at MINIMUM Andy’s first child support payment should have been for $370. If we simplify Andy’s support obligations to $10 per month, that means Andy just paid five days worth of support for two kids that he hasn’t paid a dime in child support for in the last TEN YEARS!!!
Andy keeps saying that the Judge in his child support case “noted” slander and extortion, but the truth is she did nothing of the sort. What she did do was tell Andy “You can’t afford the luxury of being a stay at home father” and told him to get off his lazy butt and get a job. She also noted the fact that Sindy Monzano, Andy’s live-in girlfriend and mother of three of his six illegitimate children, doesn’t have a job either. Her EXCUSE was that this blog is keeping her out of work, but last time I checked McDonalds doesn’t check social media when making hiring decisions.
The bottom line is that Andy Esquivel is a complete loser and his girlfriend is not much better. Both are living on public assistance with no intention of even looking for productive work while they continue to have babies as if they were millionaires. Normal people have jobs and don’t have kids until they can afford them. Andy clearly is not only not normal, he’s just plain lazy…as if being a convicted felon and a con-artist wasn’t bad enough.
Today Andy Esquivel posted the clearest evidence to date that he is either strung out on drugs or that he needs to be committed to a mental institution immediately. This 5 minute video posted on Youtube clearly illustrates the state of Andy’s mind and will immediately convince anybody watching that Andy is not only a fraud, but probably shouldn’t be on the outside of a padded cell.
The premise of this video is that Wiser Technology, Andy’s fake company with no employees, no office, no revenue, no capital, and no customers is somehow the world’s center of innovation and were it not for the interference of Andy’s fraud victims and the Utah justice system, Andy’s imaginary inventions could have saved lives at the Boston Marathon.
What inventions you ask? Well in this video alone, Andy claims to have invented an app that reminds you at regular intervals that today might end badly (this is not a joke – watch the video). In another portion of the video, Andy claims to be the source of the idiotic idea of training homeless animals (he specifically mentions ‘cats’) to be bomb-sniffing homeless animals.
It is clear from the content and tone of this video that Andy Esquivel has completely lost his mind. The timing couldn’t be worse for this onset of sudden and complete psychosis, as Andy’s final pre-trial hearing is scheduled for May 7th. Andy needs to detox before then so he can cope with the state’s motion to compel discovery.
In other news, Andy recently posted a cashiers check on his Diigo blog that he claims is a child support payment (the amount is obscured to avoid a more thorough inspection). Unfortunately for Andy, neither the Utah Office of Recovery Services nor the Colorado Department of Child Support Enforcement received any such payment, so Andy is still not in compliance with a recent court order that he begin paying $370 per month immediately.
Just when you thought Andy Esquivel’s schemes couldn’t get any more childish and insane, he comes up with something that’s so incredibly stupid it makes you wonder how he managed to get out of kindergarten.
This is “Super X-Man”, Andy’s latest super-hero. Andy claims to have created this cyber-crime fighting character for i-Safe and for John King’s kids. Both assertions are completely untrue of course, but that won’t stop Andy from pretending that this character had something to do with his Xtagged scam back in 2009.
The cartoon character is actually a Zaazu smiley lifted from this website (fourth row, first smiley) and modified in Photoshop to sport an “X” instead of an “S”. Andy is notorious for finding cute characters online and pretending he came up with the graphic himself or licensed it’s use for one of his scams (Crazy Frog being the most notorious example). Here’s how Andy describes the new super hero and once again claims that the little character would have saved the world had it not been for the exploits of evil mastermind Daryl Acumen:
D.O.B: 2009 meet Super X online delete man his promise is to fight online crime & delete people like Daryl Acumen & his Xtagged co-conspirators, trust us Superman don’t eXist but online Super X-man does his true name will be revealed soon;) …Andy created this internet superhero for ex-F.B.I. agent Mr. King’s kids of www.I-Safe.Org in 2009:)x Here’s Daryl Acumen’s face after Super X busted Daryl:'( cry baby… Team WiserThe World Wide Web’s first Superhero that actually fights Cyber Crime using Digital Internet Dna System
So there you have it – this stolen Zaazu smiley is going to save the internet with fictitious Digital Internet DNA technology that Steve Klemark isn’t smart enough to spell, much less invent, and he would have done it already if it hadn’t been for those pesky fraud victims who keep pressing charges against Andy for stealing their money.
In related news, the final pre-trial hearing in Andy’s securities fraud trial has been moved up one week – probably to deal with the fact that Andy still refuses to fully comply with a mutual discovery order issued by Judge Connors over a month ago. The court will likely rule on prosecutor Nathan Lyon’s ‘motion to compel and will force Andy to hand over all witness information, potential testimony, and all remaining documents on pain of a contempt finding. Full case update available here [PDF].
The new pre-trial hearing has been set for May 7th in the same court-room. Hopefully Andy will be able to fly out for the hearing, since it probably won’t end well in his absence.
Well not really, but in the following email [PDF] from Andy Esquivel to his e-cigarette supplier in China, Andy CLAIMS to have sold Wiser technology to some people with “lots of money” and tries to convince his supplier to reduce the size of his order because the $4,000 he managed to steal and Western Union to China was all he would be able to send. Andy’s supplier responds with a follow-up email [PDF] stating that they will not send any more e-cigarettes until Andy wires the balance owed.
William I sold Wiser technology I am under contract and I cannot talk about it, until my attorney says it’s ok. And the new owners have lots of money you don’t want to lose this account its big just send the difference in e-cigs send half of both batteries any color, NO mint! if you want they don’t care they want to carry both anyway William and they will order from you they are just spooked about giving more cash money. I will make you a deal you send 230 and I personally will western union the rest of money just as I did before with $4.000 I told you in email that they told me not to western union the money and I did anyway of my own personal money.
All of this is an obvious scam. If Andy had really sold Wiser technology (which didn’t legally exist at the time) to a group of people with lots of money’ then why was he having such a hard time coming up with the rest of the cash for the e-cigarettes he ordered…which were the company’s only product? What did Andy do with the money from the supposed sale? If he sold his company, then why didn’t he have enough money to pay his ex for back child support (I’ve already sent a copy of this email to ORS)? Why couldn’t he pay the scammed Utah investors back?
The bottom line is, Andy Esquivel is a very talented liar. It takes a lot of guts to spout nonsense that is so utterly unbelievable and to be able to keep a straight face so that people actually wonder if there’s a shred of truth in what you are saying.
One of the goofier imaginary products which Andy has pretended to have invented is the “Xraza Phone.” This is a sister product to the equally imaginary “Chinera Phone” which Andy pretended to have invented some time earlier.
The concept for the Xraza Phone is as racist as it is ridiculous. Andy pretended to have purchased an iPhone knock-off from China for $27 and claimed he was going to develop a series of apps for it that would appeal to immigrants. He claims the apps would include Google Translate so that immigrants could understand English, and makes reference to features designed to appeal to ‘Chinese people’. Here’s the text of an email [PDF]Andy sent to Leonard Martinez pitching the idea:
Subject: Leonard please call me App for Airport is from 2 party company
and they have a third party company that want to trade technology and

would be to your attorney office just call me please
Thank You Much! Andres Esquivel
Sent with Chimera WiserPhone…
Obviously the “Xraza phone” doesn’t exist, but the majority of Andy’s emails contain a signature line claiming that they were sent from one. Obviously Andy enjoys pretending to be a mobile app developer. If he actually developed one, he might be able to earn enough money to pay his monthly child support bill.
Andy Esquivel LOVES to brag that he’s being followed by hoards of press. Here’s an email [PDF]from his former attorney Leonard Martinez warning him not to talk to any members of the press, particularly Heidi Hemmatt of KDVR Fox 31 in Denver.
We worked with Heidi to set up the interview with Andy because we were sure he was dumb enough to go through with it. We had her call Allen Brady to organize the meeting and Allen (having the IQ of a tape-worm) agreed. Heidi specializes in exposing con-artists and criminals like Andy Esquivel.
Subject: Re: Interview with Heidi
From: Leonard Martinez <email@example.com>
Date: Thu, October 21, 2010 11:30 am
If you are talking about Heidi Hemmat from Fox news, then absolutely NO. He is under
investigation and he is not to talk to anyone especially media!!
As you can see, Leonard was adamant that Andy not talk to the press because at the time he was “under investigation.” Now that Andy has been indicted, that advice goes double, which is probably why Andy fired him. Andy is a sociopath with a huge ego, so he’ll never stop claiming that the press is following him around, but at least we know he once received sound legal advice to avoid them like the plague.
In the following email [PDF] which Andy Esquivel sent on June 29th, 2010, Andy announces to his followers that they are all “Billionaires!!!!!!”. The a doctored image of a mysterious device is then proudly attached to the email in order to convince Andy’s followers that soem new Xtagged invention has been released that will ensure them instant fame and fortune!
Unfortunately for Andy, the device was neither an Xtagged product at all, but a prototype LG spart-phone concept from LG (actual photo to the right).
Notice how Andy whites out the product details so nobody with an IQ below 20 will realize that he’s stolen the image off the web? Notice also the amateur “Xtagged” logo added to the device with Microsoft Paint because Andy can’t afford Photoshop?
This is one of the last times Andy will affix the Xtagged logo to his falke inventions, because soon afterwards he would start labeling everything as Wiser Technology. it’s amazing hos transparent Andy’s scams were back then!
Here are the details about the actual product:
Concept phones always look interesting, though very often the design isn’t practical for day-to-day use if it were made into a real product. The Flutter was an entrant for LG’s recently concluded Design the Future contest that encouraged users to come up with concept designs. This design didn’t win the competition, though it did manage to grab the Prop Master’s Choice Award. When closed, the Flutter looks quite sleek with only its numeric keypad showing, though we’re not too sure how the user is expected to see what’s going on. The phone can be split open to reveal a display that fans out, sporting a user interface that looks like an exact clone of Apple’s iPhone. Don’t expect to see this phone appearing in shops anytime soon.
As we get closer to trial, it helps to understand the scale of the scams Andy Esquivel has been perpetrating for the last three years. In order to help the readers of this blog understand the extent of Andy’s crimes, I’d like to share the following email [PDF] which Andy sent in April of 2011. In this email, Andy Esquivel actually brags about having stolen $175,000 from “investors” in Xtagged. Note, Andy does not call them “owners”, but INVESTORS! That is an important thing to observe because up until now the main argument in Andy’s purported legal defense has been the notion that he “never took no investors” and “never sold no securities” and that in fact all of the people who gave him money for shares in Xtagged were “owners”…which is effectively another way of saying the exact same thing.
Here’s an excerpt from the email:
The day I took you to Leonard Shar
remember… and Leonard didn’t want to talk to
you and you just went back and met him. Why
would he not want to hear your testimony bro
look what happened to you Shar when your
colleagues found the blogs about the S.E.C and
Andy the scammer. I only had $175,000 in
investors big deal that was my budget for
three years www.bump.com has put 1.1 million
in to bump in one year bro!!! Shar that day you
went to Leonard’s office he had told me that
the S.E.C did not even start a investigation…
Seven moths later!!!!!
If you ask me, it looks like Andy needs to get his story straight before he tells it to the judge. Were these people ‘investors’ or were they ‘owners’ or does it really make a difference? If Andy has any hope of getting this case thrown out before May 14th, then he probably needs to review his email and make sure he hasn’t spammed anything to the world that is going to contradict his witness testimony on June 12th.
Andy Esquivel gets tough on the court! On April 10th, Andy posted the following on his Diigo blog:
04/08/2013 Ladd Q. (6924 read) – firstname.lastname@example.org – WHY are the plaintiffs paperwork called securities but not Ladd’s, Allen’s, Jeff’s, etc. all true Xtagged owners want this fake securities case dropped A.S.A.P!
As you can see, Andy is mad! He wants to know why Allen Brady, Jeff whats-his-face, and Ladd Quayle’s Xtagged paperwork aren’t referred to as a “securities” while Ryion, Chris and Kyle’s paperwork is. That is a very good question, and it’s probably something Andy can ask the court on May 14th at his pre-trial hearing. If Andy is forceful enough about this apparent discrepancy, he might actually be able to convince the judge to throw the case out prior to the June 12th trial date. Andy might consider presenting the judge with paperwork for all current and past owners of Xtagged and Wiser Technology to bolster his case. If the court is so convinced that Ryion, Kyle and Chris’ paperwork all constitute ‘securities’, then you would think that the courts would have said something about the paperwork of those other owners as well. I’m sure there’s a valid reason why only the paperwork for these three defendants was considered when bringing securities fraud charges against Andy, but he has a right to know what those reasons were.
Good luck Andy! Maybe you should consider writing a letter to the court via the clerk’s office to expedite the process. You’ll have to include all the subject paperwork as to add weight to your case for a dismissal, but at least you won’t have to wait until May 14th for a decision.
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.
New evidence revealed recently shows that Leonard Martinez dumped Andy Esquivel as a client on March 28th, 2011! The email, which is terse but professional, shows that Leonard finally gave up on Andy nearly two years ago and reveals that all of Andy’s bragging about the legal work that Leonard has been doing since was simply a figment of his over-active imagination.
The full text of the email is attached below or you can click here to read the full email with Andy’s response. This makes the third lawyer Andy has scared away in two years. Obviously these legal professionals know something that Allen Brady and Shar Jenkins don’t.

According to an email sent to his supporters on January 7th, 2011, Andy Esquivel managed to extort $250,000 from investors in Colorado AFTER the nearly $250,ooo we’ve shown that he managed to steal from previous investors in Utah. This is an important development because it proves either that Andy Esquivel had enough cash on hand to pay child support in 2011 (although he told the court on April 3rd that he did not) or that Andy Esquivel is a very good (and brave) liar!
Here’s the full text of the email for you all to inspect. Note: When Andy says “SEO” he means “SEC,” which in his illiterate mind means the Utah Department of Securities. The investigation he’s referring to is the one which resulted in the felony fraud charges he is now facing trial for.

Here’s the latest episode of XAndyHero, the video blog by one of our favorite Andy Esquivel fans!
Andy Esquivel had a bad day yesterday at his child support hearing. This hearing was for current child support owed through Colorado and doesn’t even address the nearly $20,000 in back child support Andy already owes.
Yesterday a judge in Colorado spanked down Andy’s repeated assertions that the $5,000 check he extorted illegally from Ryion Butcher and gave to his ex should count towards his child support balance. She pointed out to Andy that the current hearing was only to deal with the money he’s owed since November of 2011.
Andy has been ordered to pay $320 per month plus $50 per month in back support for the balance accrued since 2011. He is still awaiting a court hearing for the $20,000 he owes prior to November 2011.
Andy argued that he’s broke and doesn’t have a job. he said he’d bene tryign to find work but that potential employers continue to find this website, which has destroyed his good name (Andy has a criminal record going back 20 years that includes statutory rape, burglary, weapons and drug charges as well as domestic abuse…all of which is a matter of public record). The judge wasn’t buying it and told Andy to get a job anyway. She stated flatly that Andy has five children and thus doesn’t ‘have the luxury of sitting at home’ on his ass watching TV all day. When Andy repeatedly tried to bring up Xtagged and Wiser Technology, the judge stopped him mid-sentence and asked “are any of these projects generating money?” – to which Andy was forced to answer “No.”
Andy was ordered to begin paying both the current payments and back child support immediately. If he fails to pay child support as ordered by the court, then he will be forced to re-appear in June and explain why. He could then face stiff penalties as Colorado’s deadbeat-dad laws are no joke.
It must suck to be a complete loser.
On Back in 2011, Donna Martinez of Millennium Marketing warned Andy to stop sending crazy, ranting, psychotic emails to the entire world. Unfortunately Andy wasn’t smart enough to understand her, much less to listen. Posting this to illustrate that when an idiot gets good advice, he’s usually not goint to listen.
On May 18, 2011, at 10:28 AM, “Donna Martinez” <[redacted]@earthlink.net> wrote:
Andy, I have no idea who Stephenie is and why you are allowing these ranting emails to be sent out again. Did you not listen to anything I said when I met with you and Shar in March about doing business with you and these badly constructed emails with poor grammar, spelling and ranting needing to STOP. These emails have nothing to do with how you expand and market your business & products. It will only harm you and keep you from growth and revenue.
Please remove my email address from your list. You’ll find it in my e-signature below.
You have no idea the opportunities you have wasted. This is a very sad state of affairs you’ve involved yourself again. I do not do business in this manner or do I associate with people who do.
Pathalogical lying sociopath and convicted felon Andy Esquivel gave us all another reason to peg him as the dumbest human being alive today by sending out a hilarious email in which he basically thumbed his nose at the Utah court system and openly refused to comply with an order to fully comply with the prosecution’s mutual discovery motion. In the email, Andy basically claims that although the “11 owners” of the Xtagged scam have evidence which will be presenting at trial, he won’t hand it over to Davis County Prosecutor Nathan Lyons because “they don’t trust you guys.”
Earth to Andy – This is a criminal trial and you’ve been ordered by the court to hand over all evidence to the prosecutor. Holding out a few slips of paper because you claim your supporters “don’t trust” the court is basically contempt. Not only could you be cited and fined for withholding evidence, but you could actually find yourself in jail prematurely simply for refusing to comply with Judge Connors’ order. Furthermore, any evidence which you fail to hand over to the prosecution will not be admissible at trial, but you probably already knew that right?
Andy goes on to accuse Davis County of “racism” (big surprise) and claims he’s going to ask the judge to move the trial to another venue because everyone in Utah is so mean to him. Here’s a copy of the full email:

Please keep in mind Mr. Lyon that the evidence bundle I gave you does not have evidence from all 11 other Xtagged owners until trial they don’t trust you guys because of Holje & Albrights lies but they will be at trial with videos.
Steve Klemark bought Xtagged.com in 2009 and Holje nor Albright ever contacted Steve, Rebecca Dunn Xtagged CEO 2009-2011 she has never been contacted.
I am going to request new pretrial date asap now that you have seen 2008 Xtagged, Inc paperwork all legit and proof of perjury & witness tampering on behalf of the plaintiffs & Daryl Acumen. I believe if this case is not dropped asap I can asked the judge to move this trial to another court based on my evidence of extreme prejudice.

Andres Esquivel KarmaCause CEO:
Sent with my Xraza-phone
There are so many ways we can make fun of Andy after he sends out emails like this one: Whyis it that none of these “Key media” personalities who are always “bcc” on all of Andy’s emails ever show up for any of his
hearings? Why is it that nobody’s ever seen this mythical “Xraza-phone” that Andy claims to use to send these emails and if there is a such thing as an “Xraza-phone”, then why did he lie to Judge Connors and tell the court he “don’t carry no phone”? Why haven’t we hard from Steve Klemark in ages except through fake Linked-In profiles and secondary references from Andy? Is the Denver Police Department really ok with Andy showing off scanned copies of Steve’s security badge to promote his own criminal activity?
In other news, Andy has a hearing tomorrow at 3pm with the Jefferson County Court in which he needs to explain why he has failed to comply with a lawful order to pay child support. As I write this, Andy owes over $20,000 in back child support for the first two of his six children and hasn’t made an effort to find a job so that he can pay the amounts which he continues to owe monthly. Andy asked for tomorrow’s hearing to buy himself more time since he has no intention of seeking work, but he has no grounds on which to argue for a reduced payment or a reduction in the amount he already owes. IN fact, Andy’s child support liability was based on minimum wage employment specifically because the court was unable to verify ANY kind of legitimate employment for Andy in the last ten years. Andy’s continuous threats of legal action and “jail” made repeatedly to members of the Colorado Child Support Enforcement office which is handling this case have not deterred the state’s attorneys or impressed the judge. For an overview of the child support case proceeding against Andy, click here [PDF].
Andy Esquivel is scheduled to appear in court for a child support hearing on Wednesday. The court will try to determine how a guy who claims to have invented everything from inflatable car covers, blue-tooth enabled electronic cigarettes, numerous pornographic mobile phone apps, alcoholic energy drinks, Internet DNA, and tools to prevent mass shootings in shopping malls can’e afford to pay child support for his first two kids. Andy, who will be representing himself because eh can’t afford an attorney, will attempt to persuade the court that he should be let off the hook because he gave the $5,000 he conned out of Ryion Butcher to his ex once in an effort to convince her he was now a wealthy man. That argument would probably carry a little weight, except for the fact that the Colorado Department of Child Support Enforcement has been following the fraud trial here in Utah closely and is fully aware that Andy is a criminal.
Andy has been preparing for this hearing by calling the Colorado department of Child Support Enforcement on a daily basis threatening to sue the department and send everybody who works there to prison (sound familiar)? The calls got so disruptive that the department actually went to the trouble of having Andy’s calls routed to a special answering service so that nobody would have to talk to him unless there was some sort of “medical emergency”.
Currently Andy owes around $20,000 in back child support – and counting. It’s kind-of pathetic that a guy who claims to be such a brilliant inventor can’t even come up with a few hundred dollars a month to support his own children, but I guess you can’t expect a sociopath to get a job and pay his bills.
Of all of Andy Esquivel’s fake inventions, this one has to be the most pathetic! It’s a bicycle helmet that Andy bought from Walmart, photographed, added a sticker to with a cheap photo editor, and then tried to pass off as a serious invention that he claims to be donating to a dead child in Colorado…sick! Here’s the product description in Andy’s own words.
There are two Buttons on the helmet: (1) MY & (2) SUNSHINE. As the child pushes the buttons together, the lock mechanism that holds the helmet to the bike seat releases. Both buttons must be pushed at the same time. When pushed correctly, a tune to ‘You are my sunshine’ plays as the child is putting on the helmet . A built in sensor then recognizes that the helmet is in place on the head of the child and turns the music off! This was developed for and will be donated to Karma Cause Erica Forney Foundation!
Using the death of a child to pump up your own scams is disgusting. Doing so in this cheap a fashion is just plain wrong. Andy Esquivel should go to jail for this disgrace alone, but the jury likely won’t hear the story because Andy will be too ashamed to share.
Andy Esquivel’s fake “Wiser No Phone Zone” app to debut at trial on June 12th! Andy has stated in recent blog posts that:
“The men connected to 2008-2013 conspiracy will be charged with drivers deaths for the last three years Wiser N.P.Z app would have saved lives.”
It’ll be exciting to hear Andy’s testimony about this fake app, which Andy claims that he donated to a deceased child in Colorado, in court on June 12th. I’m sure the jury will be impressed. If Andy can convince the jurors that all these marvelous, life changing inventions could have come to market and saved lives were it not for the “evil Xtagged conspiracy” and the “false charges” against him, then he might have a chance at securing a not guilty verdict. At the very least it will make for a hugely entertaining trial!
I’ve attached a screen shot of Andy’s fake app to this blog post. If you look closely you can tell the image is doctored with a cheap photo editor and isn’t really an image taken form a phone. If you search the app store, you’ll further discover that no such app exists either on Android or iOS. in fact, “Wiser Technology’ doesn’t even have a developer license for either platform.
Personally i think it’s sick for a con-artist to leverage the deaths of innocent people to pump up his own scams, but that’s just me. What do you think?
An image of the MySpaceTagged website as it looked on late 2007 when I met Andy Esquivel for the first time. Notice the Skybar banner ripped from PartyUtah.com and the advertisement for the fake MySpaceTagged reality TV show.
The trouble with pathological liars is that they can never keep their lies straight. Case -in-point is Andy Esquivel’s ridiculous claim that I once worked for him at Xtagged. Andy has repeated this story over and over again ad-nauseam and I’ve repeatedly refuted the story by pointing out that I was working for Omniture at the time and the chances of me leaving a lucrative career at a company on the verge of a successful IPO to join a con-artist at a fictitious company that owned a website that generated only a tiny fraction of the traffic I was driving on my own entertainment website were exactly zero! Andy claims that my supposedly being fired from his scam explains why I’m so determined to see him brought to justice for his crimes.
The latest installment in this gag is the following post on Andy’s Diigo blog. I’ve atatched a screen capture to this blog because I’m sure Andy will delete the post once he realizes how stupid it sounds.
Daryl Acumen was fired from Xtagged 2006 and tried to come back but Allen Brady told him NO in 2007 at Xtagged club PlayGround. Daryl then started Xtagged smear/slander campaign which excelled big time in 2009 because of Bump.
Andrew Phipps filed patent May of 2010 after he was convinced Xtagged conspiracy was sending Andy to prison falsely! Andy has phone call recorded with Andrew Couch 2008-2009 Andrew says “Andy if you are not going to join with us give me your address so I can send you cease & desist order because we already filed patent before you” Liar Liar Liar…
Even though every word of this post by Andy is a lie, my favorite part is the first sentence: “Daryl Acumen was fired from Xtagged 2006 and tried to come back but Allen Brady told him NO in 2007…” Now, never-mind the fact that “Xtagged.com” wasn’t even registered as a domain name until October 26th of 2007, the fact is even if I was dumb enough to accept a ‘job’ from a convicted felon like Andy Esquivel in 2006 it would have been impossible because I didn’t even MEET Andy Esquivel until the Winter of 2007!
In mid 2007 Andy Esquivel stole a banner from my website to promote a nightclub in an effort to get free drinks from the owner. The owner asked me to talk to Andy to find out if he was legitimate later that year. I finally met Andy in November 2007 and by late January 2008 I was beginning to realize he was actually a scam. I have photographic proof to substantiate my timelines, including a photo of my license plate taken January 27th, 2008 at Andy’s request, but I’ll save them to embarrass Andy with in the event I’m called to testify at his fraud trial in June. The entire scope of my interactions with Andy Esquivel and his Xtagged Scam, prior to his offer to buy PartyUtah.com from me for $150,000 in 2009, was the three months from late November 2007 until February 2008. It took me a little over two months to figure out that Andy Esquivel was a con-artist and his Xtagged website was a scam, but it wasn’t until 2010 that I would learn the full extent of his criminal activity and be inspired to help bring him to justice. It’s a shame the real owners of the now defunct “Club Playground” aren’t around to testify to Andy’s attempts to defraud them, but I suppose three felony counts of securities fraud will have to suffice for now.
Under the new YouTube profile “UtahVenger” (which must be some kind of super-hero alter-ego or something), Andy has released a “psychedelic” new music video. The video starts off with Andy going over the evidence he’s compiled to comply with the March 26th discovery deadline in his securities fraud case. He talks about Rebecca Dunn’s stack of evidence, and then mentions a man named Brian Davis, who Andy admits he tried to scam out of $100,000! Next Andy cuts over to a scene where he’s driving to Farmington Utah to deliver a stack of papers to his former attorney and then the music starts.
The camera is shaky, the music is funky, it’s altogether like something out of the 1960s. Andy spends the rest of the music video showing screen shots of his various Diigo posts, which collectively point to a vast conspiracy to endanger children by stifling Wiser Technology in it’s good and noble work to save humanity. Andy posts the following in support of this claim:
Amazing the end music is genius “Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks [LYRICS]” Media this highlights my email to you & the authority’s that the stall tactics Albright & Hurst were engaging in kept Wiser technology ideas from saving children’s lives, I emailed some of you media the idea to prove, it was a donation to CHS! The song is warning for kids to run for now because WT has its hands cuffed or tied by Utah Davis court. This is truly Karma Cause “Desperation Breeds Creativity”
I’m actually kind of curious as to whether this “Wiser Technology can save kid’s lives” thing is part of Andy’s defense? The irony is that if Andy can convince a jury that Wiser Technology could have saved the lives of many children were it not for the Xtagged conspiracy, he might actually win enough sympathy to force a not-guilty verdict. Hopefully Andy doesn’t catch on to that fact and sticks to his “Bump.com wanted to steal Xtagged” story.
In spite of the fact that Andy Esquivel has now lost two attorneys because of his propensity for mouthing off online, our little friend from Colorado still hasn’t learned his lesson. Andy is now posting on YouTube and claiming that I’m somehow going to “prison” in connection with HIS securities fraud case. Just for fun I went ahead and called Andy out by pointing out that in fact he was the one facing fraud charges and the potential of jail time not me, to which Andy responded:
“Yeah Andy is in prison right ‘Bountiful BOY'”
Apparently, Andy has forgotten that the only reason he’s not in prison right now is that his mother bought a $10,00 bond through Surety Bail Bonds to secure his release. Because Andy has such a short memory and is getting more and more cocky about being able to walk the streets in spite of his recent incarceration and upcoming criminal trial, I thought I’d go ahead and post the details of his bail bond (which is a matter of public record) for our readers to inspect and enjoy.
As you can see from these documents obtained from the court, Andy’s mother Jobita Berriel secured the $10,000 bond for her son’s release with a down payment of $540 in cash on 7/29/11 and the promise to pay the $500 balance on 8/6/2011. Without this bonding agreement with Surety Bail Bonds, Andy Esquivel would still be in prison awaiting trial. Since Andy has no money and no job, there is no way he would have been able to come up with the money himself.
Enjoy freedom Andy! Unless you’re able to prove the existence of an Xtagged conspiracy, it might not last.
Andy has been bragging on his various scam blogs that you can call the court and order “video” of the proceeding, but (as usual) Andy is lying. No video is available of the hearing, only the audio we provide here.
The hearing went pretty much as expected: Andy kept insisting he was innocent, indicating that he probably won’t plead ‘Guilty’ until he very last minute. The judge noted Andy’s intention to represent himself, but explained that he will still be required to follow the protocols of the court, and Andy agreed. A trial date was set for June, which was the earliest they had available. The prosecution pushed a 2012 motion for reciprocal discovery which Andy still has not complied with – meaning that Andy still hasn’t provided the prosecution with his “evidence”, case overview, or a list of potential witnesses for trial. Andy tried to pin the blame on WIlliam Albright, but his former public defender was quick to point out that (a) Andy had a copy of everything he gave to his investigator and (b) the point is moot because the motion is for Andy, not Albright, and it’s Andy’s responsibility to comply. The court agreed and gave Andy a hard deadline of March 26th to hand over all evidence, testimony and witness lists to the prosecution.
“Your Honor, here’s where we’re at: He needs to comply with the motion that’s been made by the state for reciprocal discovery. Whether he’s given me anything or not is moot because he’s got it! He’s got whatever he gave me. He gave me copies if he gave me anything at all (or my investigator), so what’s before the court right now is he needs a timeframe that he will comply with the motion for reciprocal discovery.” – William Albright
The highlight of the hearing was probably when Andy tried to make a big deal of the fact that trial had been postponed. He asked the judge to tell him who had a calendar conflict and thus couldn’t make trial ‘today.’ The judge was understandably confused and explained to Andy that today was a pre-trial conference, that trial was stricken at the last pre-trial (which he missed) and that all the details were discussed in his absence…which apparently Alan Brady failed to convey. At first Andy even pretended not to be aware that trial wasn’t going to begin on the 26th, even though he’s posted such several times across the web over the last several weeks. The funniest part was when Andy started to tell the judge that he had “all [his]witnesses” present and ready to go, even though only Alan Brady and some woman described as an “older, heavy-set Latina with bad hair” were in the courtroom. Shar Jenkins, John Steer, Steve Klemark, and Ron Kelsay were all noticeably absent.
Andy has been claiming that a slew of potential witnesses (including Rebecca Dunn) will be testifying in his defense. If that’s true, then Andy has until the 26th to notify the prosecution so that the court can prepare for their testimony…otherwise they will all be forbidden from testifying and Andy’s evidence will not be permitted in court. Obviously whatever was in the shoebox Andy gave to Nathan Hurst, the public defender didn’t find it very actionable. It will be interesting to see what Andy does next.
Since Andy is now acting as his own counsel, his contact information is a matter of public record. That information as provided to the court follows:
Andres “Andy” Esquivel
990 Upham Street
Lakewood Co. 80214
Andy Esquivel has posted another psychotic video in which he rants about his former public defender William Albright in a display that is almost certainly a ploy to convince the judge that he is mentally incompetent to stand trial. Here’s the video:
The video is a rambling mess in which And accuses Albright of basically being computer illiterate, and then accuses him of posting a YouTube video making fun of Andy, which makes zero sense. The video is eleven minutes of absolute garbage that’s almost painful to watch. By the end of the video Andy even accuses me of being some sort of super-hacker who breaks into government networks and does who knows what, which he claims is the reason he ‘fired’ me from his Xtagged scam. …yes, this contradicts Andy’s previous stories explaining why he supposedly ‘fired’ me from his fake company.
Andy claims to have filed some sort of complaint against Albright with the Utah Sate Bar and claims that is the reason he ‘fired’ Albright. Of course he makes no mention of the court filing in which Albright dumps Andy as a client because he found Andy’s actions “repugnant.” There’s no evidence of any Utah Bar filing, but I’m sure Andy will post another video soon with screen shots of the letter he sent in an effort to scare other attorneys who might try to give him legal advice in the future.
According to Andy’s rant, William Albright and I are working together to expose the Xtagged scam, and Michael Holje is also involved. The centerpiece of this conspiracy is the prosecutor in Andy’s assault trial in Bountiful where Andy plead guilty to ‘disturbing the peace’ in order to avoid a jury trial where he would almost certainly have been convicted of much more serious charges and possibly jailed. Andy claims the the prosecutor in that case orchestrated a state-wide scheme to kidnap him, suppress evidence of the abduction, and hand his body over to a shadowy government agency interested in dissecting his under-sized brain. You think I’m kidding?
Andy spends several minutes trying to explain that he doesn’t own WiserElectronicCigarette(s).com even though links to the domain can be found in all corners of his various websites and he used to brag about the website publicly and in Youtube videos which we have archived here on this website. The reason Andy disavows the domain is that is was hacked ages ago and Andy was never quite able to figure out how to fix it. He’s also afraid to admit that the people who built his original WEC website (a couple of gullible kids from an outfit called Social Fuel) quit when they realized Andy couldn’t pay them for their work.
It’s an entertaining video, if a bit hard to follow at times. Personally I think Andy is losing his mind.
In a recent email, Andy Esquivel tries to explain to his followers why he’s broke. According to Andy, it all my fault and it has nothing to do with the fact that he hasn’t bothered looking for a job in the last 10 years. He also continues to promise easy riches from a huge “lawsuit” that’s eminent, even though Andy can’t even afford an attorney to represent him in his criminal trial.
“FYI especially all of you that was helping Xtagged in 2009 we do have a multi-million $ lawsuits against Bump & scam.com we all should have been living good by now it’s because of Daryl helping bump slander Xtagged you were cheated. when you call please let us know the movie producers wants to interview all who call officer Metcalf in American Fork thx.”
As you can see, Andy is also still clinging to the fantasy that he’s the subject of an upcoming Hollywood blockbuster that will rival “The Social Network” in US ticket sales. He’s also supposedly orchestrating a huge criminal case against me in American Fork for exposing all his businesses as scams and costing Utah taxpayers billions of dollars in tax revenue.
In another part of he same email, Andy pretends to be Shar Jenkins claiming “I will be monitoring emails for Andy while he’s on a month business trip thank you all!” It funny, but when I am on business trips I monitor my own email. I guess Andy likes pretending that he’s too rich and too important to check his own messages. I wonder where And’s pretending to be?
And in other news Andy claims to have developed an iPhone app to expose corrupt lawyers like the ones who kept encouraging him to take a plea deal rather than going to trial. I have an iPhone5 and I couldn’t find any such app in the iTunes Store, but Andy provides a fake link to a non-existent page to prove that it’s actually legit. Maybe Andy will provide a screen shot of this fake app for us to share…then he can explain to the world how he can afford to develop such sophisticated software when he can’t even afford to pay child support.
A jury trial date has been set in the felony securities fraud trial of Andres “Andy” Esquivel. At the pre-trial conference on February 26th, Andy waived his right to counsel and informed the court that he intends to represent himself. A final pre-trial conference has been set for May 14th, followed by a 3-day jury trial on June 12th – 14th. Judge Connors will preside over the trial.
In a preview of what is to come, immediately after the trial Andy Esquivel filmed a crazy, ranting video immediately after the hearing in which he insists that the trial will never happen because the prosecutor keep stalling the case. He also introduced star witness Jeff Parker, who nobody has ever heard of. Speaking on the subject of Tuesday’s hearing, Andy Esquivel wrote:
“…Jeff Parker shows at court – YouTube. Holje & Albright are both connected to CORRUPTED PROSECUTOR J.C Ynchausti that covered up the attempted murder of John Steer when he was struck in the head five times by a que ball at hero’s. This is why I told judge Connors at pretrial I can not trust attorneys“
As soon as the audio transcript is available, we will post it for everyone to see.
Andy has released a new video introducing Jeff Parker, a former investor in the Xtagged scam who is either not smart enough to recognize the fact that Andy is about to be convicted of fraud or who simply doesn’t care. This video was shot (by Andy because apparently Ron Kelsay has given up on his documentary featuring Andy and has stopped following Andy to Utah every other week) yesterday immediately after court. It includes claims by Andy that the court refuses to tell him who asked for a delay in the trial (which is a matter of public record), and that Albright never interviewed Jeff Parker who he claims is an essential witness in his defense.
Anyway, Andy goes on to talk about Dakota Iverson, who has recently learned about these criminal proceedings from this blog and has started attending the pre-trial hearings out of curiosity. Andy attempts to dilute Dakota’s testimony that Andy ripped him off of wages at Xtreme Sushi by accusing Dakota of “stealing” his “$2,000 basketball.” I personally think that’s one of the funnier claims that Andy has made in his defense.
A $2,000 basketball Andy? Seriously? Maybe you should include that in yoru courtroom testimony…see how that impresses the judge.
I was surfing the web today and I stumbled across a series of exceptionally well made Andy Esquivel fan videos that I think you will all enjoy! In case you lose the link to this post, a permanent link to these videos is now included in the fan videos section under videos in the main navigation above.
Andy Esquivel is getting really desperate ahead of his pre-trial hearing on Tuesday. He showed off his desperation over the weekend when he posted ‘smart-phone’ photos of a screen shot of what he supposes to be a post from me in which I allegedly tell him, Leonard Martinez and my mother to “go to hell”. The image is obviously fake and I had a lot of fun picking the image apart this morning before work. Here are some things to notice which prove the image was concocted by Andy, not a legitimate post by yours truly:
It’s interesting that Andy has become so desperate only days before his pre-trial hearing on the 26th. I’m kind-of curious what’s causing him to panic so. Trial won’t be for at least another month, so he’s got plenty of time to pack before prison. What is he so riled up about?
After discovering our new Wiser Technology Scam blog, Andy Esquivel threw a lug-nut and sent the following hilarious email. Notice he send this email to William Albright’s investigator even though William Albright is no longer handling Andy’s criminal defense. Andy’s big point is that the Utah Department of Securities asked for a the trial to be rescheduled to avoid calendar conflicts with other trials. Andy takes extrudes from this a vast conspiracy theory that somehow ends in his eminent acquittal…go figure.

http://garythebus.blogspot.com/ <— Here they go again FYI Adam Sweet had me arrested to keep me from seeing the SEC judge ask Allen & Steve we recorded Adam Sweet lie over and over he told Allen he had never talk to him Allen goes off on Adam Sweet, Adam called us for meeting after the SEC judge I recorded it all! I have also published it all! FYI we have sent this to all our family members Allen is on speaker phone as we speak he is sending it to his family also I advise all Xtagged owners due the same immediately.Adam Sweet Lied! Adam had to have told Davis prosecutor they could not make trial.To buy more time and get trial continued!
Shar & Allen were told by Thomas Brady Adam Sweet will not be testifying as a matter of fact Thomas told Shar Adam Sweet should have never been at the pretrial.This video below Shar talks about his meeting with Utah SEC Allen Brady Thomas Brady & Adam Sweet:
Andy’s on a posting and email rampage after the creation of our new Wiser Technology Scam blog at Blogspot.com. He’s been posting replies and sending emails to supporters trying to win sympathy and make himself look less insane ahead of trial. Here’s a sample of what he’s posted and what I have replied:
AndyFebruary 23, 2013 at 6:01 AM
Your such a coward Daryl and you know this is all recorded. Leonard told us everything he knew Xtagged system was worth “millions & billions” just as you stated Daryl & Shar is witness to that, why would you state that, Allen Fired you in 2007 you had nothing coming and your mom gave you a chance to come back you told her to F–K OFF… you will go to prison for helping Andrew we all will make sure of it! Fyi Daryl’s email just got another notification!
Daryl AcumenFebruary 24, 2013 at 12:51 PM
1. Xtagged isn’t worth anything, much less “millions & billions” of dollars. What Shar Jenkins heard as I came off the elevator at your harassment trial in 2012 was the tail end of me explaining to my brother-in-law why so many of your followers were dumb enough to follow you all the way to Utah for a criminal hearing. What I said to him was “…[Andy has] convinced these brainless monkeys that if they continue to follow him around the country like a heard of infected cattle, he’s going to be acquitted of all fraud charges and that they’re all going to be worth ‘millions & billions’ of dollars.” One of your brainless monkeys happened to be standing at the elevator door as it opened and I finished my sentence and, having no brain, came to the ridiculous conclusion that I was telling someone that I thought your worthless Xtagged website was worth “millions & billions of dollars”. I have the entire conversation recorded because I took the precaution of keeping the Sony voice recorder in my pocket turned on while I walked out of the courtroom where you begged the judge for more time – just in case you violated your no-contact order and I needed to provide evidence of such to the police.
2. I never worked for Xtagged or any other such scam you’ve invented, so the idea that I was ever “fired” from one by Allen Brady is laughable! I’ve had a very lucrative career for the last few decades and I wouldn’t have accepted a job offer from a moron like you if you offered me the world as a signing bonus. What Allen Brady and I DID talk about over drinks at the Playground in 2007 was whether or not I thought you were a scam-artist. Allen was having second thoughts about working with you and expressed his doubts about your legitimacy at the back bar while I we waited for nobody to show up to some promotional event you begged me to attend. I told Allen that I wasn’t sure if you were legitimate or not, but that he should be patient with you. I said that even though I’d already determined that you were probably completely full of crap and that your little “Xtagged” venture would go nowhere because I felt sorry for Allen and I didn’t want to crush his hopes right there at the bar. Years later at the dinner table with his mother, I told him the truth.
3. My mother never asked me to join Xtagged. In fact, when I found out from my father that she’d told him I was leaving my job to join Xtagged in 2010, I laughed historically and assured him that not only wouldn’t I ever consider such a move (because I was convinced by then that you were a criminal and I love my job) but that I hadn’t even spoken to my mother in months to receive such a solicitation in the first place. The bottom line Andy is that you haven’t stolen enough money to pay my salary for one year at any start-up ever managed to invent…and that’s saying a lot because you’re a pretty good thief.
Why don’t you spend a little less time worrying about what I do for a living and a little more time looking for a job for yourself.? I hear McDonalds hires people like you – with a note from the state that says you’re not dangerous.
AndyFebruary 22, 2013 at 6:37 PM
Daryl your going to prison… cat got your typing fingers!
Daryl AcumenFebruary 24, 2013 at 12:57 PM
I’m not the one on trial for three felony counts of securities fraud carrying possible jail time, Andy. The likelihood that I’m going to prison for your criminal activity is exactly ZERO!!!
AndyFebruary 22, 2013 at 3:40 PM
Bwahahahahahahah! Its over DDDaryl your going to prison. John Steer ordered this equipment not I. Daryl Herpes Acumen stated by his mother look http://rebeccaondaryl.blogspot.com/ is so desperate he will try anything to manipulate you all just like the pic above Daryl’s wife Shirley was big METH head back in the day and a lot more… What DDDaryl does not show you is the fight that’s why my shirt is ripped in pic above. Daryl why don’t your own mother talk to you? Rebecca’s last statement:
“911 info from Rebecca Dunn herself, MR.Daryl Acumen called her CRYING: “Please mom don’t let them put me in prison, please I beg you, I’m sorry”
Rebecca: “I warned you Daryl, in the end Andrew, Ryion and Ladd would blame the nxxxxx”
John Steer can you confirm this bro! www.DarylAcumen.co
Daryl AcumenFebruary 24, 2013 at 12:11 PM
…um, yea. So anyway, let’s get some facts straight, shall we?
First of all, we have reliable testimony (from the mother of your two oldest kids no less) that YOU are the one with Herpes, Andy Esquivel. We also have it on reliable authority (USA-vs-Esquivel) that you are the one with a history of METH addiction. Your shirt is probably ripped in the picture above because you were in the midst of a cycle of domestic abuse, which is also well documented (Case#044901546 Domestic Abuse).
As for my mother, the fact is I haven’t spoken to her in years and neither have you. If you HAD spoken to my mother recently, you would know that she is in no condition to testify at your preliminary hearing on the 26th, as you assert in several of your blogs, or at your upcoming felony securities fraud trial. Every time you pretend to still be in contact with my mother, you make yourself look more and more silly – which is a hard thing to do considering you already look like a stooge. Also, my mother would never use the “N” word, even in the third person.
You’re a very entertaining soul Andy Esquivel, keep it up! I’m sure you will be the life of the party in jail.
John SteerFebruary 22, 2013 at 5:35 PM
WOW REALLY! This is John, every word out of Daryls mouth is a lie and needs to get his facts straightened up before he goes posting absurd blogs all over the internet! But dont worry, everything and everyone will be in place here very soon! Keep tryin Daryl, your effort is very hillarious! 😉
Daryl AcumenFebruary 24, 2013 at 11:45 AM
You’re the hilarious one John. You cling beyond all reasonable hope to the idea that your broke, unemployed, convicted felon of a cousin who’s under indictment for three felony counts of securities fraud (each of which carries the potential for serious jail time) will by some miraculous stroke of luck be acquitted at the last possible moment and that you and the rest of his mindless cronies will somehow become instant millionaires. In my book, that makes you an idiot.
Everything I’ve posted about Andy is backed up by reliable (usually sworn) witness testimony and/or certified public records released by a court of law. In most cases, including the one which you are responding to, I actually go to the length of posting scanned copies of the actual court documents which are the sources of my information. In the meantime, I’m accused by people like you, who among other things have been known to extort free labor from high school kids to line your own pockets with extra cash, of spreading “lies”?
Seriously? On what basis do you make that accusation?
Let’s review for a moment what constitutes a fact: A court judgement on behalf of a reputable corporation against a named defendant is a FACT!!! The judgement above contains Andy Esquivel’s name, not yours, which makes your opinion on the matter irrelevant.
When I say that Andy Esquivel is “unemployed”, I base the assertion on the FACT that the Colorado and Utah Departments of Recover Services have been unable to verify his employment in order to attach his wages for back child-support, or even verify any employment in the last ten years to estimate his liability.
When I say that Andy is broke, I base the assertion on the FACT that Andy is about to file papers with the court certifying himself “indigent” and in need of the assistance of a court appointed public defender (if he hasn’t already).
When I say that Andy Esquivel is a convicted felon, I base my assertion on the outcome of case #881000871 and #881919199 on which Andy Esquivel was convicted of felony burglary charges…and on the rest of his lengthy criminal record.
When I say (and I haven’t for some time, but let’s get this out of the way while we’re on a roll) that Andy Esquivel is a METH addict, I base the assertion on drug tests and expert testimony in federal weapons case USA-vs.-Esquivel in which Andy was found to have had significant amounts of METH in his system consistently for a period of some years.
So tell me John, on what basis do you make the ridiculous assertion that “every word out of [my] mouth is a lie?” …and please note that the words of a pathological lying sociopath don’t constitute ‘reliable’ evidence in any reasonable person’s mind, so you’ll have to think for yourself for a change.
It’s always amusing when someone as ignorant about technology as Andy Esquivel pretends to be a tech guru! It’s even more hilarious when someone of Andy’s technological ineptitude gets excited and starts showing off his ignorance to the world.
Several months ago, Andy Esquivel posted online charts showing the number of “requests” his various webstes were getting. Andy made the posts with much fanfare (devoting huge patches of real-estate on his homepage to the data) and each post was accompanied with varying proclamations to God and assorted Hail Marys and Amens. It almost broke my heart to have to reveal to Andy via a post on my Xtagged Scam thread that a “request” means nothing in the world of web analytics where I’ve made my living for the past two decades, and that every page on his various websites fired anywhere from 10 to 30 such “requests” every time a page was loaded. I explained that the tens of thousands of “requests” Andy was seeing on his various websites probably actually only translated into a few hundred real page views after bot traffic was discounted and his own views subtracted from the total.
Well, it seems Andy got the memo and has now returned bolder and wiser than before (no pun intended). Today Andy posted new numbers for his various blogs showing that in the past year, his seven most trafficked websites have generated a whopping 6,734 page views in total (combined) traffic! He even adds the annotation “WOW!!!”
Now, I’m not going to break out the ruler and try to get into a “who’s bigger” contest with a sociopath. The fact is, it doesn’t matter how much traffic Andy’s websites generate vs. mine because we’re reaching different audiences. Andy’s websites are geared towards himself, his girlfriend, Allen Brady, and the few people in this world who haven’t yet figured out he’s nuts. My websites are geared towards people who would otherwise take Andy seriously and need to be warned to stay away.
That said, I feel compelled to point out that our humble little Xtagged.co blog has generated 6,610 “real page views” this month alone…and the month isn’t even over yet. That number of course excludes 4,905 pageviews served to bots since February 1st. In other words, we’ve generated nearly as much traffic in the first two thirds of February than all of Andy Esquivel’s blogs generated in the whole of 2012 and for the first two months of 2013. In January Xtagged.co served 10,504 page views during the 5,393 visits made to the site by 1,058 unique visitors (real people). While those numbers pale in comparison to the 600k – 750k page views my old PartyUtah.com website served up every month and is nothing like the over 100,000 page views we served up on the last single day I owned the site, it’s still pretty good for a black and white blog that doesn’t advertise and for which I’ve done no promotion.
In the end, traffic doesn’t mean a whole lot without what we call in my field “key performance indicators.” The key performance indicators of this website are the number of people who find us online and come forward with additional information, evidence, or horror stories about Andy Esquivel and his various scams and the number of months Andy spends in prison because of the evidence we uncover. By those measures, this tiny little corner of the Internet is doing pretty good.
How do you measure success?
Judge Connors and the prosecutors of the Davis County 2nd District Court have finally lost their patience with securities fraud defendant Andres “Andy” Esquivel. During the pre-trial hearing February 12th, the court issued a preemptive warrant for Andy Esquivel’s arrest should he fail to appear for the pre-trial conference scheduled for February 26th. It will no longer be acceptable for Allen Brady, Andy’s brainless side-kick from Draper, to appear on Andy’s behalf.
The court denied a request by outgoing defense counsel William Albright to set a pre-trial hearing a month out. The date was set for two weeks following last Tuesday’s meeting as a signal that this trial needs to move forward and further delays will not be tolerated.
The court granted William Albright’s request to be removed from the case because he has found the pre-trial activities of Andy Esquivel to be “repugnant”. Since Andy has not yet filled out the required “proof of destitution and poverty” paperwork allowing him to even use a public defender, nobody has yet been formally assigned to replace Albright. At this moment, Andy is officially without legal counsel for the third time in the history of this case. Once the destitution paperwork is filed, we’ll post it online for the rest of you to inspect.
What I find amusing is the fact that Andy has been proclaiming for three years now that his army of high-priced corporate lawyers have consistently advised him not to post anything else online until court – yet in the last three years Andy has posted hundreds of times and emailed those involved in the case ad-nauseam in spite of his claims that this or that will be “the last post until court.” This website is in fact kept alive by the fact that Andy doesn’t know when to shut up! The library of evidence which Andy has posted against himself is amazing, and it’s cost him two different attorney’s in the last nine months. Even now Andy is posting claims that he and his illiterate co-conspirators could have prevented sites like Twitter and Apple from begin hacked, in spite of the fact that he couldn’t even prevent a hacker from taking his amateurish e-cigarette website offline for over a year. (…so much for Digital Internet DNA)
Andy claims to have an army of witnesses willing to testify on his behalf at trial, but the fact is only one person visibly still supports Andy, and that’s Allen Brady (the man who helped Andy steal $50,000 from his own mother). Andy even claims that Rebecca Dunn is scheduled to testify in court and that he’s been in contact with her – a ridiculous assertion for reasons I’m not going to post on this website. We continue to receive emails from people willing to testify against Andy and we forward them all to prosecutor in the case. The bottom line is, Andy is pretty much alone and the doors are closing in. It’s time to either plead guilty or start packing for an extended stay in Davis County. Personally I think Andy’s going to plead guilty and rip somebody else off to pay the settlement required by any plea deal to Ryion , Kyle and Chris.
…we will see.
Because Andy Esquivel is technically without legal representation at this time and thus needed to appear in court today at 8:45am but didn’t show up, the court was unable to proceed with it’s pre-trial hearing. William Albright indicated that he was prepared to proceed with his motion to withdraw, but noted that Andy was in Colorado still after his girlfriend had their third child (the court referred to her as his ‘wife’, but of course Andy has never been married). The court agreed to continue the hearing out of compassion, although no mention was made of the fact that Allen Brady found a way to make it to court in spite of the fact that he had a new baby at about the same time that Andy did. When the Defense asked to continue the hearing until March, the prosecutor objected stating that the state wants to get this process moving as there have been too many delays already. A new pre-trial hearing has therefore been set for February 26th.
For hose of you wondering why we haven’t yet posted Andy Esquivel’s statement of “indigence” on this website, the reason is simple – Andy hasn’t filed it yet. It turns out that Andy still hasn’t filled out any of the forms begging the court to grant him the use of a public defender (who he has now pissed off) because of his indigent (read ‘broke and unemployed’) state of affairs. Once Andy files the appropriate forms and the court makes them public, we will post them on this website as evidence that Andy is indeed broke, destitute, and unable to pay his bills. Hopefully he’ll get those papers filed sooner rather than later, or else he’ll find himself being represented by Allen Brady in the courtroom – or worse, himself!.
Here’s Andy Esquivel’s latest statement about trial:
I am Back! Hello everyone my name is Andy Esquivel I would like to thank Team Wiser Allen, John, Shar, Leonard etc. as you may have heard by now trial was cancelled again. I will get my day in court no matter how long it takes. I will not take misdemeanors they are trying to force to save themselves from a lawsuit all because Ryion & Daryl lied to the Utah S.E.C!
You hear that Daryl Acumen I will never quit until I see you and your mother Rebecca Dunn take the stand at trial!!!
Earth to Andy – your trial has been postponed, not cancelled. Don’t worry, you’ll get your day in court soon enough. Hey, since you’re so ‘eager’ for your trial to start, why don’t you save the court some time and represent yourself instead of waiting for the new public defender to come up to speed on your case (that would be a load of laughs). Better yet, just plead GUILTY and get it all over with!
As for Rebecca Dunn taking the stand at trial – don’t hold your breath. Personally I would give my left arm to be able to testify against you at trial, but since I’m only peripherally connected to this case, that’s not likely. Maybe you should ask your new attorney to call me to testify though and see how that goes over. “Hey Julie, I want Daryl Acumen to take the stand at my trial…no I’m not crazy…yes I realize he’ll only convince the Jury to put me away for a quarter of a century, but…no I haven’t lost my mind, why do you…but I don’t care if I go to jail, I just want to look good in front of my friends…OF COURSE I HAVE FRIENDS!!!”
Andy is unbelievable, but a load of laughs. Keep posting buddy. Maybe you’ll land a guest spot on Dr. Phil. I hear they have a special program coming up devoted to pathological lying sociopaths with delusions of grandeur.
Most of you know that Andy Esquivel is a worthless scumbag who sleeps with under-aged girls and refuses to pay child support for his children, but what you probably didn’t know is that Andy also takes advantage of high school kids to make money! Following is a first-hand account form one of Andy’s former employees who was only in high school when Andy used him for cheap labor at his Xtreme Sushi shop and never paid for his work.
The testimony you are about to read has been forwarded to Davis County prosecutors to help illustrate the lengths to which Andy Esquivel will go to further his various scams and to make a buck. John Steer, Andy’s low-life cousin, is also implicated in this scheme to defraud a young man with little experience in the ways of the world because he stood by and watched Andy extort work form this high school junior in the furtherance of Andy’s schemes.
Below is the brief testimony of Dakota Iverson of Bountiful Utah:
When I was a junior in high school there was a restaurant called Xtreme Sushi in Bountiful Utah. I was attending Bountiful High school and was in need of a job, so one day I wandered into Xtreme Sushi and applied. The person who took my application and interviewed me was a man named Andy Esquivel.
Andy gave me the application and I basically got the job on the spot – quick and simple. After a couple days Andy started ranting to me about “Xtagged”. He said it was a website worth millions and billions of dollars and that it would make us all rich. This was around the same time that Twitter was invented and it’s funny because he would always say that twitter was nothing compared to Xtagged and if they could get so popular and be worth so much money then that means Xtagged is going to be worth way more!
I went on working for Andy at Xtreme Sushi for $6.50 an hour as the time passed and passed without me getting a pay check. I think it was two months before I got my first check , and I do not recall the amount of money I was finally paid. That first amount doesn’t really matter though because after that first two months, I never did see another dollar – nothing in the next four months that I worked for him. Paychecks were not what I would call a ‘usually thing’ at all while working for Andy – in fact they did not really exist. I went on for so long with out receiving money because every day without fail Andy would talk to me about Xtagged and he would say that he was giving me 1,000 shares of stock in the company. He promised that when the site took off, I would be able to sell my stock for “millions of dollars”. This didn’t get rid of my desire and right to be paid for my labor, but I trusted Andy because everything he said seemed to be in my favor. He always seemed to care about my well being (or so I thought). I trusted in Andy because he was such a good liar.
I feel stupid for believing Andy for 6 months with out receiving almost anything. I was a kid in high school so I was very gullible. Andy saw that gullibility in me and he decided to take advantage of it.Though I did not ever complain for about not being paid, I made sure to keep track of every hour that I worked in hopes of being paid for my labor someday. After all, that is what Andy told me to do because he always promised that soon I would receive my check.One day I went to work and when I showed up at the restaurant I realized that the doors were locked and it was dark inside. A lot of thing things were missing from in the restaurant. I am not sure who removed everything, but I’m certain it was Andy. It looked like he just ran away, which I finally learned is exactly what happened. In the end he just packed up and ran away without paying me another dime and with out even saying a word.I’ve calculated that Andy owes me 89.9 hours worth of labor at $6.50 and hour, which totals up to $584.35. John Steer would be able to confirm this, because he was there while I worked all those hours. I don’t ever expect to get paid and I’ve learned my lesson about who to trust and who to avoid. Andy is definitely a person to avoid at all costs. I hope he finally gets what’s coming to him in this trial.
What kind of Christian takes advantage of young kids working their way through high school? What kind of person sits back and watches while a scam artist like Andy Esquivel extorts money from children? The answer is simple – Andy Esquivel is no Christian and John Steer is no human being. Both men are leaches and one day Karma will catch up to both of them for what they’ve done.
I’d like to thank Dakota for his courage in sharing this story. None of us likes to be conned and it’s hard to admit when it happens, but at least we can alert the world and save others from making the same mistakes. Andy Esquivel and John Steer are a collective mistake – period! Wherever they are, they should be reminded of the people they’ve hurt and the trail of lies they’ve left behind. One day soon it will catch up to both of them, and those of us who believe in justice will be there waiting and cheering.
Andres “Andy” Esquivel’s public defender filed a motion with the second district court of Davis County on Wednesday formally requesting to be released from the case. In the filing Mr. Albright described Andy’s actions as “repugnant” and stated that the attorney client relationship had been “irreparably damaged” by Andy’s pretrial activity. This is EXACTLY what we stated would be the reason for Albright’s departure when we first learned about it from the court last week. The trouble with Andy, besides the fact that he’s a pathological lying sociopath, a dead-beat dad, and a convicted felon, is the fact that he doesn’t know when to shut up! This is the SECOND attorney that Andy has driven away by his psychosis and if he is not careful he will end up having to represent himself in this case because no competent attorney will represent him. Albright has nominated conflict attorney Julie George to represent Andy for the duration of the trial.
The memorandum filed with the court on Wednesday states the following:
Utah Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 1.16 (b) (4) states that where representation has commenced, the lawyer shall withdraw from the representation of a client if “the client insists upon taking action that the lawyer considers repugnant or with which the lawyer has a fundamental disagreement”.
- Mr. Esquivel has recorded conversations I have had with him. His recordings include conversations taken place at the courthouse, on the telephone, text messages and include conversations defendant had with my investigator Carl Hurst.
- Most, if not all, of these conversations and text messages have been posted on the internet. These conversations have also been sent to news outlets, reporters, business associates of Mr. Esquivel and to the case prosecutor, Nathan Lyon.
- One of Mr. Esquivel’s associates is Allen Brady. On the 16th of January Mr. Brady called me and set up a meeting with Mr. Esquivel, Mr. hurst, and myself. Mr. Esquivel did not show up, but Mr. Brady did.
- Two days after we met with Mr. Brady, Mr. Esquivel posted on the internet under the subject heading “Why was Allen Brady threatened” (a copy of what was posted is attached). Mr. Esquivel states that we threatened Mr. Brady not to testify.
- Later on page 2, Mr. Esquivel talks about a video he has whereby I talk to him about the evidence of the case.
I have found the actions of Mr. Esquivel repugnant and obviously have a fundamental disagreement with him recording attorney client conversations and posting them on the internet and specifically sending them to news outlets, reporters, and the prosecutor in the case. Because of the above actions the attorney-client relationship has been irreparably damaged to the point that counsel can no longer provide effective assistance.

Mr. Albright then attached a psychotic, rambling email from Andy in which he goes on and on about Allen Brady testifying and about the $100,000 he stole from Melissa Garr. The email states:
Mr. hurst all my witnesses, you know the ones you guys have not called, have spoken with Allen Brady the man that was called to Bountiful 01/17/13 and threatened not to testify & you guys can’t tell Allen to stop recording especially in Bountiful where they attacked us! All Xtagged owners have asked for my attorneys phone number provided in this video for Xtagged owners & media ONLY that’s why the video is unlisted: http://youtu.be/t4S4WDr2PDg
but most Xtagged owners say they are writing letters to judge Connors including Allen Brady. I asked them to wait until I have my meeting with you & Albright over Skype this coming week!
Every time Holje or Albright have presented so called evidence I shot it DOWN! I recorded Brian Davis laugh about $100,000 he had and Melissa Garr supposedly gave me listen to my attorney http://youtu.be/t4S4WDr2PDg
FYI- the new so called evidence you hear public defender talk about in video above was also shot down call Allen Brady asap he has all details. Ryion’s checks prove he scammed Logan Laws look http://youtu.be/-iGbB11Sdt8
So Andy and his brainless accomplice Allen Brady have done it again. No doubt Andy’s first attorney Michael Holje resigned the case for similar reasons. We’ve seen in emails provided by Andy Esquivel himself that Michael Holje was concerned about evidence that he stole $100,000 from Melissa Garr, and it’s clear that this evidence is damning enough to rattle Andy into driving away another lawyer! Obviously there is some truth to Ms. Garr’s allegations if Andy continues to go completely insane every time the question is raised by his own attorneys.
Why is Allen Brady still so involved in these proceedings anyway? Doesn’t he realize after all this time that he isn’t helping Andy in the least? Everything he’s done to try to help Andy in this case has only made things worse! He began by claiming against all reason that Ryion Butcher and I would be facing eminent jail time in this case (in which we’re not even defendants), bragged that the case was being moved to Colorado for some reason, spent thousands of dollars he didn’t have paying for an attorney who subsequently quit because he realized Andy was guilty, and now has so inflamed tensions between Andy and his public defender that Andy is left without legal representation in a felony fraud case that could carry up to 25 years in prison for Andy if he’s convicted! If ever a brainless monkey walked the Earth in the clothes of a human being it must be Allen Brady…the man has the intellectual capacity of a grape!
To say the least, Tuesday’s pre-trial hearing should be interesting. The court will appoint Andy a new public defender and that attorney must figure out a way to keep her client under wraps until trial. She also needs to put Allen Brady in his place and convince the Judge that Andy Esquivel is mentally competent to stand trial…whew! Talk about having your work cut out for you.
Good luck with that Julie. Personally I think you should file a gag order against Andy and enter a GUILTY plea on his behalf. I don’t know how Andy would pay restitution to his victims, but at least he’d be out of everybody’s hair for a little while.
