Golf Coach Andrew Nisbet Charged With Soliciting the Murder of Three Boys He Allegedly Molested

     In 2006, 24-year-old Andrew Michael Nisbet began working as a golf instructor at the Las Positas Country Club in Livermore, California, a suburban community 45 miles east of San Francisco. He quickly became a popular and well-known golf coach. Within a few years Nisbet was promoted to Director of Instruction. During this period he not only trained young golfers in the bay area, he taught students in Michigan, North Carolina, Mississippi, and Alabama.

     On December 7, 2013, the day before Nisbet was to receive the PGA's Northern California Section 2013 Junior Golf Leader Award, police officers showed up at the country club and took him into custody. An Alameda County prosecutor had charged Nisbet with 65 counts of child molestation that included lewd acts and oral sex with three of his former golf students during the period 2009 to 2012. The boys were between the ages twelve and sixteen.

     The alleged sex offenses took place in Nisbet's parked car at the country club, at his home, and on out-of-town golfing trips. According to the criminal complaints, the coach bought his victims expensive golf equipment, took them to restaurants, and showed them pornography on his computer. Whenever one of the boys rebuffed his advances, the gifts and other perks would stop.

     Following his arrest, Nisbet reportedly confessed to the commission of lewd acts. He was booked into the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, California. The judge denied him bond.

     In late February 2014, from his jail cell, Nisbet began exchanging letters with a man Nisbet hoped would murder his three accusers. In the correspondence, Nisbet and the potential hit man discussed how much it would cost to kill the three murder-for-hire targets. He said he wanted them "taken care of."

     The solicited trigger man took Nisbet's letters to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office. Shortly thereafter, a undercover officer posing as a hit man, visited Nisbet at the Santa Rita Jail. During these tape recorded conversations, Nisbet provided the undercover cop with personal information about the targets of his homicidal wrath. The phony hit man told Nisbet he would make the murders look like robberies gone wrong.

     In April 2014, the Alameda District Attorney's Office charged the 32-year-old golf coach with three counts of solicitation of murder.

     While it is not uncommon to find pedophiles among the ranks of teachers and coaches, it is unusual when these type offenders turn into murder-for-hire masterminds. If these allegations are true, Andrew Nisbet is a criminal sociopath with a good golf swing.
