Golf coach accused of trying to have teens killed

LIVERMORE, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say a San Francisco Bay Area golf coach accused of molesting three boys tried to hire a hit man to have them killed.

The Alameda County District Attorney's Office has charged 32-year-old Andrew Michael Nisbet with three counts of solicitation of murder. Nisbet already was facing dozens of molestation charges.

Prosecutors say the Livermore golf coach exchanged letters with a confidential informant in which he indicated he wanted the victims killed and discussed the price. They say he later met with an undercover agent posing as a hit man to discuss the killings. The agent allegedly made a shooting motion with his hand and told Nisbet he would make it seem like a robbery.

A call to Nisbet's attorney, Timothy Rien, by the Contra Costa Times on Tuesday was not returned.
