SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — One of the men arrested in the FBI raids in the Bay Area and Sacramento that netted a California State Senator Wednesday is a San Francisco sports agent who belongs to a firm catering to upper-echelon sports figures.
Marlon Sullivan has been charged with involved in a murder-for-hire conspiracy, gun and drug trafficking and selling fraudulent credit cards, according to the federal complaint. He is alleged to be an associate of San Francisco political consultant Keith Jackson and his son, Brandon Jackson, who are facing similar charges.
In the complaint Sullivan is quoted by an undercover FBI agent as saying murder for hire is “easy work” and that “I will put eyes on the guy and have my boy knock him down.” According to the complaint, when the undercover agent said he thought Sullivan would bring someone from the East Coast to murder the intended target, Sullivan replied, “I got a hundred niggas, I still got my ties to the street. I got young boys who love me.”
