Our friend Andy Esquivel is currently wasting away in Davis County jail waiting to be sent to a padded cell at the Utah State Mental Hospital. He’s apparently not enjoying his stay very much because he’s lobbying through his girlfriend to be moved sooner rather than later. It sounds as if Andy thinks he’ll get better treatment in the mental hospital than he is currently receiving in jail. Here are the court notes on the most recent exchange:
04-16-14 Note: Clerk received a call from DEF’s spouse and family member
asking why DEF was not transported to the Utah State
Hospital yet. Clerk informed them that the prosecutor’s
office was advised by the jail that DEF is on the waiting
list, but he is #20 on the list. Therefore, has not been transported to the State
Poor Andy. It apparently still isn’t sinking in that he’s criminally insane and that society has no further use for him. Maybe he thinks he can con a psychiatrist into letting him go home early. Whatever is going on inside that warped brain of his, I’m glad it’s happening in jail instead of out on the street.
