His attorney, Jack Burns, told The Spectrum of St. George (http://bit.ly/1qSX7zc ) Esplin also has already lived up to an agreement to repay $500,000 to Leavitt Group Enterprises.

Esplin signed a promissory note to pay another $150,000 to Traveler’s Insurance, which paid that amount in a claim to the company.

According to court records, Esplin took $682,342 over a nine-year period by 2014 while employed as treasurer and chief accounting officer of the company.

Burns says Esplin admitted to the embezzlement when confronted by his employer.
