DUBLIN (CBS SF)_ A former Livermore golf instructor was sentenced by a judge Thursday to 27 years in state prison for sexually abusing three boys he was teaching and then trying to solicit someone to murder them.
Andrew Nisbet, 32, had faced a total of 75 felony counts for allegedly abusing the boys as well as three felony counts of solicitation of murder for allegedly trying to hire a hit man to murder two of his victims in his case after he was in jail.
But on Sept. 11, he pleaded guilty to seven felony counts in a plea bargain with the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office — one count each of forcible oral copulation and possession of child pornography, two counts of lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor and three counts of solicitation of murder.
Nisbet was arrested last Dec. 7, shortly before he was to receive the 2013 Junior Golf Leader Award from the PGA’s Northern California Section.
PGA officials cited Nisbet “for his dedication and leadership in developing a wealth of exciting and educational golf programs for juniors.”
