Andy Esquivel has plead Guilty to two felony counts of securities fraud! No matter what he says from here out about the “conspiracy” against him, the fact is he’s a criminal, a serial felon, and a crook.
[Andy Esquivel Plea Agreement]
The plea followed over six months in custody including a stint at the Utah State Mental Hospital where after treatment Andy was found competent to stand trial for his crimes. As part of Andy’s plea deal, a single 2nd degree felony count of securities fraud was dropped. Andy remains free on $10,000 bond pending his sentencing on October 7th.
Andy celebrated his release from jail by posting on Diigo and bashing those who have helped see him charged with his crimes. He’s tried to hitch his wagon to Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow by implying that somehow the conspiracy against him is related to their recent indictment. The reality of course is that Andy’s case is in no way related to anything but his own criminal activity and that there is no ‘conspiracy’ against him, only a desire to see him pay for his crimes.
The maximum penalty for each of the two 2nd degree felonies Andy has now confessed to is 5 years in prison. Given Andy’s behavior prior to and during his trial, the victims and the authors of this blog obviously hope that Andy is sentenced to the maximum. He’s certainly proven that he has absolutely no remorse for his actions and will continue his criminal activity as soon as he is free.
I will post the audio from Andy’s competency hearing as soon as it arrives. In the meantime, stay tuned for more psychotic rants from this pathological lying sociopath and the brainless minions who worship him.
OH MY GOD!
I can’t find the Diigo link. Point me in the right direction?
