A prominent California golf instructor currently in jail for child sex abuse charges is facing new charges of plotting to kill the boys who accused him of the abuse.
Court documents filed Tuesday by the Alameda County District Attorney's office detailing the plot. The report by the district attorney's investigator states that Andrew Nisbet tried to hire a hit man from inside his cell at Santa Rita jail in Dublin, Calif.
Nisbet was arrested in December, accused of sexually abusing three boys in his junior golf program. On Tuesday, prosecutors added three new counts for solicitation of murder. The Livermore golf instructor was already facing 75 felony counts. Those charges include oral copulation with a minor, molestation, child pornography, and lewd acts on three unnamed boys who were between 12 and 17-years-old.
According to the investigator's report, a deputy at the jail said on February 25, 2014 an informant showed him letters from Nisbet which asked to have the victims taken care of. The report says the confidential informant, "received more letters from Nisbet agreeing on a price for each victim."
Eight days later, on March 5, 2014, the Alameda County District Attorney's office sent an undercover inspector to visit Nisbet in jail. The meeting was recorded by an audio/visual recorder and two devices worn by the inspector.
The report states that the undercover inspector, "told Nisbet that he was a mechanic and could fix a car for him and made a pistol shooting motion with his hand."
The report says, "Nisbet agreed to provide the U/C with up-front money to prove he was serious."
The inspector said the crimes wouldn't be traced to Nisbet because it would appear the victims got robbed for their cell phones.
On March 18th, investigators searched Nisbet's cell. The report says they found letters discussing the murder-for-hire plan. There was also a letter with directions to one victim's house.
Nisbet's attorney did not respond to requests for a comment Tuesday night.
Nisbet is scheduled to appear in court on June 10th.
