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!

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:

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?
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.

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.
William J. Albright
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.
Poor little Andy Esquivel just can’t catch a break. Just when it didn’t look like life could get any worse with a pending criminal trial, his public defender quitting his case, another pending hearing for back child support, and a sixth illegitimate child entering the world with a dad who can’t seem to find work, Andy Esquivel gets slammed with ANOTHER judgement demanding payment of $1,575.99 from NAR Inc.
The judgement is being filed in Utah as a foreign judgement from Colorado by NAR Inc. apparently for APEX Alarm equipment and services that Andy purchased and never paid for. Obviously Andy won’t be able to pay the judgement since he’s broke, unemployed, and still pretending to be CEO of a bankrupt group of imaginary technology companies. One wonders how long it will take Andy to realize he’s an adult now and that he needs to have a job in order to live. In this day and age it’s unacceptable to continue living off of your girlfriend and her food-stamps while living at home with your mother. Any real man would by now have picked up the classifieds and found himself legitimate work as a janitor someplace.
The case details can be found here:
The court has granted NAR Inc. permission to charge Andy 8% interest until the judgement is satisfied. My hunch is that when Andy finally gets our of jail and is forced to get a job as a condition of his probation, NAR Inc. will garnish his wages to recover their funds. At minimum wage, who knows how long that is going to take, but at least they’ll eventually get their money.
Over the weekend, Andy Esquivel posted the following on both his Wiser Technology and Karma Cause scam websites.
(911 info) just in from Rebecca Dunn herself, 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 in the end Andrew, Ryion & Ladd would blame the [nigger]”
There are several problems with this post, besides the racism which I will deal with last. First of all, I haven’t spoken to my mother in years. We had a major falling out in 2008 when the severity of her mental condition became fully apparent to me, and the schism only deepened when I realized that she was still chasing con-artists like Andy Esquivel at the risk of her own personal safety. My mother has been remotely diagnosed with Borderline Personality disorder (BPD) and her fixation on con-artists like Andy Esquivel is part of her condition. Since my mother refuses to seek treatment, I’ve chosen to cut-off all contact rather than continue a losing battle trying to convince her to seek help.
I did receive the following conciliatory email from my mother in 2011 when she realized that Andy Esquivel had been a fraud all along. I’ve never posted it out of respect for her effort to make amends, but now I feel it’s probably appropriate.
I basically stopped communicating with Andy last year and then realized that I had to expose him. Andy is stating that he is preparing a documentary based on conversations that he has recorded. He does not realize that FCC forbids the recording of conversations without the user’s prior approval. Over the past 18 months, I have sent many emails that I regret and I am certain that Andy is planning on including those and my goal was to beat him to the punch. I was prepared to send this document out early Wednesday morning; but, he just sent me a nasty email and I have no choice but to send it out now.
Daryl, we used to be so close and we have caused each other so much pain. I doubt seriously if I will ever see you again and I wonder if any of this was worth it. Please know that I love you much and I only wish you happiness. I titled the document ‘The World of Blogs and Xtagged.’ This document contains supporting emails and I’ll send it to you in four emails. I hope that some day you will find it in your heart to forgive me.
Good Luck to you and your family.
I love you.
The email was accompanied by a wealth of information in assorted documents which we have posted on our website here. Aside from this brief communication however, my mother and I remain estranged. I do still have her email address, but I do not have my mother’s phone number and wouldn’t’ call her if I did.
The second problem with this post is the fact that it doesn’t make any sense! I’m not the one facing three felony counts of securities fraud and being sued by the Utah Office of Recovery Services for years of back child support on two of my six illegitimate children (Andy gave up his paternal rights to a third after drugs were discovered in the child’s system). I’m not the one who had to plead guilty to digital harassment charges after spending a year stalking me online. Andy Esquivel doesn’t seem to get this, but he’s the only one facing potential jail time right now, not his victims and most certainly not Daryl Acumen.
The last problem I have with Andy’s post is it’s blatant racism. My mother doesn’t use the “N” word, even when attributing it to the sentiments of third parties. She may be mentally ill, but that part of her personality I’m confident has not changed. For Andy Esquivel to be desperate enough to stoop to blatant racism, even after complaining on his various websites about the racism he claims to have been subjected to by the victims of his crimes and the prosecutors holding him responsible for them, is a clear illustration that he has run out of things to say.
I’m 100% confident that Rebecca Dunn has not resumed contact with Andy Esquivel, even to inform him that she no longer wishes to be contacted by him. I know this because I get updates on her condition from a cousin who stays in contact with her. If Andy Esquivel were in contact with my mother, he would know much more about her circumstances that he professes on his various blogs. The fact that Andy has repeatedly blogged that my mother will be testifying at his criminal trial tells me that he has had no contact with her in quite some time. The fact that he continues to claim contact with her in spite of his obvious ignorance of her circumstances is laughable.
Nice try Andy. I have it on good authority that the public defender who’s about to be assigned to your case is going to insist that you accept a plea deal with the state. Maybe you should spend a little less time pretending that you have a case and a little more time looking for a job so you can afford the deal the state is going to offer you. …oh, and you might want to start paying child support while you’re at it.
Another defense attorney has resigned as counsel in the securities fraud trial of con-artist Andy Esquivel. In a filing with Judge Connors on Thursday, prosecutor Nathan Lyon confirmed to the court that William Albright has resigned from the case citing a “recently developed conflict of interest.” No details on the nature of the ‘conflict of interest’ were made available to the court, but a pre-trial hearing has been scheduled for February 12th at 8:45am before judge Connors to assign a new public defender. At that time the court will also review a continuance motion filed by the prosecution due to scheduling conflicts of it’s two expert witnesses in the case.
This makes the second attorney to resign from Andy Esquivel’s defense team in less than nine months. Defense attorney Michael Holje of the firm Brown & Bradshaw resigned the case in May citing similar client issues and demanded that Andy Esquivel cease all communication with his office. Andy subsequently asked to represent himself before pleading ‘indigent’ before the judge and requesting that a public defender be appointed to defend him.
What is Andy doing to keep scaring away his defense attorneys? We’re pretty sure Allen Brady simply ran out of money to continue subsidizing Holje for Andy, but for a court appointed public defender to quit the case, Andy must have done something really, REALLY stupid! We may not know what caused the conflict until the hearing on February 12th, but until then it’ll be fun to speculate on what drove Albright away. My guess is that it was a combination of Andy violating attorney-client privilege by sharing private communications between himself and his attorney with he world, Albright taking exception to Andy’s threats to file erroneous complaints with the Utah Bar against the prosecutor in the case, and Andy’s clearly being not only guilty but non-repentant about the crimes of which he is accused. Under the circumstances, I couldn’t blame any ethical attorney for being unwilling to continue as Andy’s defense counsel.
Andy remains free on a $10,000 bond secured by his mother because he doesn’t have a job. Case updates can as always be found here.
While shuffling through old videos, I found one I’d almost forgotten about. It’s Andy’s King Christ video in which he talks about his new religious movement and it’s associated charities.
This video is especially educational because Andy touches on so many of his numerous scams. He briefly touches on his e-cigarette and then brags that 50% of the proceeds are going to his fake Karma Cause charity. He also brags that used e-cigarettes sold through his now defunct Wiser E-Cig company would be refurbished and donated to homeless shelters (because they’re all just dying to get their hands on more e-cigarettes).
Next Andy talks about his fake Wiser Eyes HD sunglasses, which are actually MyVu Solo EV video glasses and are of course not actually HD at all. I think it’s hilarious how Andy thinks a weak photo-paint job on the MyVu solo product image can fool people, but whatever. He goes on to mention that the sunglasses are 1080p, which of course the MyVu’s are not. The irony is that Andy can’t even afford to buy a pair of MyVu’s to show off in this video – he has to rely on images swiped from eBay.
Andy goes on a rant about how he’s going to personally rebuild Solomon’s temple (and Herrod’s temple because he apparently doesn’t know the difference) and allow people to walk through the temple in HD with the Wiser Eyes Sunglasses so the temples will “never be torn down again.” The funny thing about this of course is that the movement is called “King Christ” and one of the main teachings of Christ is that we don’t need to go to a physical temple to worship God because God lives in all of us – even pathological lying sociopaths with felony records like Andy.
Finally Andy rounds out his rant by bragging about the Chimera phone, which of course never materialized, and how it along with Andy’s other fake companies, bogus charities and imaginary technologies is going to change the world. At the top of the video you can see that all these world changing, beginning with the launch of the Wiser Eyes Temple, were supposed to have happened last December 21st. The Karma Cause website also mentions the magical December 21st date and claims to kick off the world change campaign with a million dollar donation to humanity (from a guy who can’t even afford to pay his back child support).
I wish Andy would give us an update on all his fake charities and how many people they’ve saved. Maybe he can preach to us from the witness box at his own fraud trial – I’m sure that will impress the judge and the jury. Hey Andy, if you’re reading this (and I know you are) don’t forget to have your lawyer tell everybody how many lives you could save if they just ignored all the money you stole and let you go free.
Andy Esquivel’s scams never cease to amaze me. Few things are as entertaining as debunking this scumbag’s ridiculous claims and revealing the extent of his psychosis.
The latest example is Andy’s claim that he’s sold the rights to the “Xtagged movie” to film producer Brian Doubleday (Producer of 1999 blockbuster ‘Instinct’, early 1990s hit television series ‘Venturing’, & 2008 documentary ‘Big River Blues’). As evidence of the current production of this eminent documentary, which Andy hints will be bigger than “The Social Network” because he claims to have retained the ‘Facebook lawyers from the film’ to represent him, Andy has been broadcasting links to a 60 second video in which he tells part of his story.
It’s an impressive video…well produced, excellent photography, etc. There’s only one problem – anybody in the Denver area with 15 minutes to burn can buy the same video from Brian Doubleday for $99! It’s actually a terrific deal…here is the text form Brian’s “Greenworks Video” website to illustrate:
The $99 Video Bio!
Video Bios are rapidly taking the place of text bio on sites such as Linkedin, Facebook, and an ever increasing number of other social media sites. With a 60 second video bio, you can easily tell everyone who you are, what you’ve accomplished, and give them a real sense of your personality as well.
Here’s how it works:
Call Brian Doublday at our studio (303-728-9574) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your bio shoot in our studio. Once you agree about a time to come in, he’ll talk to you about what to say, and ask you to write it out and email it to him.We’ve reserved our studio every weekday from noon until 1PM for shooting these bios. Your script will be loaded into our teleprompter (no memorization is necessary!) you’ll come in and have 15 minutes of studio time to get it done.When you walk out, you’ll have a professionally produced video bio, with your name and title (if you want) on the screen. What could be better (or more affordable at just $99) than that!
There was little (really nothing) to report from Andy’s final pre-trial hearing on January 15th. The hearing was short and to the point – no resolution as yet (duh, Andy can’t afford to pay the victims back as would be required by a plea agreement), so trial will proceed on February 27th as planned. Case updates as always are available exclusively right here at Xtagged.co. You can go to one of Andy’s stupid, ranting little blogs, but all you’re going to find there is a lot of nonsense about BYU professors, Bump and death threats against Google. Only Xtagged.co consistently provides you accurate, up-to-date reporting on what has proven to be the most colorful and hilarious fraud case in recent memory. From indictment to conviction, nobody covers this case like we do!
Andy is now posting evidence of his crimes in the hopes that this will somehow convince the world that he’s innocent. Here’s the text of Andy’s latest post – see if you can make any sense of it:
We paid Ryion $2,500 through Logan Laws 09/14/2009 look below [at picture of check to the left]… after we gave Logan $2,500 Ryion was supposed to remove negative blogs he never did so we never paid remainder $2,500!
By reading the text above you would think that the check pictured was made out to Ryion Butcher, right? In fact close inspection reveals that the check pictured is the one Ryion Butcher wrote to Andy Esquivel in exchange for 1% of his Xtagged scam. The text in Andy’s post has absolutely nothing to do with the check in the photo. Note: accepting a ‘check’ in exchange for a ‘share of ownership’ in a company (real or fictitious) is BY DEFINITION a “securities transaction,” yet Andy Esquivel is going to try to make the case at trial that he never sold any securities.
In other words, here’s Andy trying to convince himself that the pictured check proves he tried to pay Ryion Butcher back, when in fact all it does is provide further evidence of the fact that Andy committed securities fraud as charged. It’s amazing how the minds of crazy people work. Looped logic, delusions of grandeur, fantasies of persecution – it’s no wonder poor Andy can’t get a job.
Next week will be a busy one for Andres “Andy” Esquivel Jr. (DOB 9/8/1970). Andy has two court hearings to contend with.
The first on January 11th at 9:01am with Judge Marianne Marshall Tims at the Colorado District Court room 2f relates to the fact that Andy has made no effort to repay the nearly $20,000 in back child support he owes for two of his soon to be six children (all conceived and born out of wedlock). Andy will presumably attempt to present evidence that he once paid his ex $5,000 (which he never reported to ORS) as reason to reduce the amount he owes from $20k to the still substantial sum of $15k. Since Andy has no means to pay either the $15k or the $20k, the question is of course moot. He will likely be asked whether he has attempted to find work in order to meet his paternal obligations, to which he will have to respond negatively. It is likely that the court will mandate that Andy take steps to become a contributing member of society by seeking gainful employment or face sanctions.
The second hearing on January 15th at 8:45am in courtroom 5 with Judge David Connors will be the final pre-trial hearing for felony securities fraud case #111701135. Unless Andy faces the music and agrees to a plea bargain in which he agrees to pay his victims back their investments with interest, this hearing will simply be a formality in which the defense and prosecution advise the court as to whom they intent to call as witnesses at the trial on February 27th. Since Andy’s attorney has no witnesses to call, the hearing should be a short one. Andy continues to post online that he intends to call a host of witnesses to his defense, but since Andy has an attorney now and his attorney has yet to notify anybody besides Andy that they need to prepare to testify, the odds of that are slim.
As usual, we’ll post details about both hearings as soon as the information is made available to us by the courts.
Here’s the latest video link from Andy Esquivel. In this video Andy shows off a single legitimate endorsement on the fake Linked-In profile he created in Steve’s name and then brags that Steve Klemark (who probably isn’t even speaking to Andy anymore considering Andy is on trial for fraud and the Denver PD has strict rules about employees associating with criminals) is the next Steve Jobs. Andy then claims that this blog is responsible for Steve Klemark’s wife’s attempted suicide, which is an interesting stretch, and hints at the end of his rant that case #111701135 may not even go to trial (presumably because Andy will finally plead “guilty” to all charges). Trial is currently set for late February.
This is a quickie sent to me by my attorney Adam Platt and I thought it would be fun to share.
