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.
