A $25,000 “CASH BAIL” warrant has been issued for Andy Esquivel’s arrest. The warrant was issued due to probation violations by Andy. “Cash Bail” means that Andy cannot get a bail bond for his release. He must come up with $25,000 in cash in order to stay out of jail.
This is a very serious situation. It means that Andy is subject to incarceration on sight by any officer in the state of Utah and he will remain in custody until he agrees to repay his victims. Even if he agrees to pay his victims back, he will remain in jail for at least 30 days plus the amount of time it takes for a judge to get around to hearing his case.
The progress report is most telling. In it Andy’s probation officer details not only Andy’s basic violations, but also his utter lack of respect for the law.
“A person’s behavior reflects their thinking, values and beliefs about themselves, others, and the world around them. Mr. Esquivel demonstrates a disregard for the feelings of others and a reduced ability to experience guilty shame. He is superficially charming and has shown a disregard for rules. He victimizes others to satisfy his own needs and expresses rationalizations for law violations.” – Roman Hentish, Supervising Officer
That is now in the official record and will accompany the recommendation by AP&P that Andy be returned to jail.
