Allegedly, I hasten to add. However, the phrase quoted in the headline doesn’t appear in this San Francisco Chronicle article:
A well-known Livermore [California] golf coach charged with 75 felony counts alleging that he molested children is now facing accusations that he tried from jail to hire a hit man to kill three alleged victims, authorities said Tuesday.
Andrew Michael Nisbet, 32, wrote letters from Santa Rita Jail in Dublin expressing his interest in having them “taken care of,” Alameda County district attorney’s Inspector Jeff McCort wrote in a court affidavit. . . .
A search of Nisbet’s jail cell uncovered driving directions to the home of the alleged victim in Pleasanton and “many other letters” from Nisbet to the informant discussing the murder-for-hire plot, according to McCort. . . .
Nisbet was arrested in December and had originally been charged with 65 felonies, including lewd acts with a child, oral copulation of a child, sending harmful matter and arranging a sexual meeting with a minor. Authorities said Nisbet sexually assaulted several boys between the ages of 12 and 17 between 2009 and 2012.
Prosecutors later added 10 more felony charges, including allegations that he possessed child pornography.
He now faces three felony counts of solicitation of murder.
Hat-tip to Stephen Sheiko on Twitter, who seems to think this story should remind us of someone we know. Allegedly.
