After a week, it appears that Andy Esquivel still remains without legal representation. This is a dangerous situation for him since he has a a pre-trial hearing on less than a month.
As most of you already know, Andy’s own attorney quit when he realized that (a) Andy Esquivel is guilty of fraud and has no hope of winning a trial and (b) Andy can’t afford to accept a plea bargain because it would require him to pay back the Utah victims immediately. So far the court has not been notified of Holje’s replacement.
Andy’s next hearing will likely be very entertaining. The main question is whether or not he will be able to scam someone out of enough money to pay Ryion, Kyle and Chris back or whether he will accept the help of a public defender. Whatever Andy decides, it is clear he has only two choices: pay the Utah victims back immediately or start packing his bags for an extended stay in Utah state prison.

Michael Holje filed a motion Wednesday asking to be released as Andy Esquivel’s attorney in the securities fraud case now pending in Davis County district court (case#111701135). A copy of the motion to be released can be found here [PDF] and as always a full case update can be found here [PDF]. No new counsel has as yet come forward to replace Holje and there is no indication yet as to whether or not Andy will accept the help of the public defender.
Andy was advised by mail that he is still required to appear before Judge Connors on July 19th for his pre-trial hearing. Unless Andy reaches a plea agreement with the court before then, the case will proceed to trial.
This is a serious setback for Andy and his defense. Most likely Andy either ran out of money ofr the poor suckers he was scamming to help him pay his legal fees wised up and decided it wasn’t worth it for them to float him anymore. Whatever the case, Andy is in serious trouble without competent legal counsel, and little is he aware that his troubles are just beginning.

At long last Andy has released a new video! This one is particularly entertaining because Andy covers the full range of his psychosis and spins an imaginary web of conspiracy theories and deception to try to make it seem as if he really was once a legitimate businessman, but that shadowy forced (led of course by me) have surrounded him with lies and deceit to bring him to trial unjustly.
In the process Andy reveals what we’ve all known for months: Wiser E-Cigarette Colorado is no more. All you have to do is go to the WiserElectronicCigarettes.com website to know that! The site’s been offline for months and “WiserMan” has stopped making embarrassing videos! Since Wiser E-Cigarettes were the only product Andy had that he could even plausibly claim to be re-selling, we can deduce that Wiser Technology is now defunct as well. None of our contacts in Colorado have spotted any more disguised Hyundai Veloster prototypes undergoing high-altitude testing and and even “Wiser Water” has vanished from supermarket shelves, so it must be true. Occupy Denver is defunct now, so that means Karma Cause must have been abandoned also – which means no $1,000,000 dollar check for the poor this Christmas. ORS Colorado says Andy hasn’t paid a dime of child support since they found him, which means Andy has no money and no job! When will this guy finally admit that he’s a total failure as a human being, get some honest work, and start paying his bills?
Anyway, here are the video highlights:
All these videos of course beg the question: Why does Andy bother? He’s on trial for securities fraud – does he really think posting more and more ridiculous videos is going to somehow help his case? Who does he think is watching, besides the small community of us who enjoy laughing at him? I guess the real question is; if Andy knew how pathetic these videos make him look, would he still be making them?
