Livermore molestation suspect accused of trying to hire hit man

Original post made by Damon, Foothill Knolls, on Apr 30, 2014

I'm surprised that this local story hasn't appeared in the Pleasanton Weekly yet. Andrew Michael Nisbet of Livermore, 32, wrote some letters from Santa Rita jail, where he is being held on multiple child molestation charges, asking someone to make sure that some of his former victims are "taken care of". And by "taken care of" he didn't mean to take them out for some ice cream.


"In March, a district attorney's inspector, posing undercover as a hit man, visited Nisbet in jail during a secretly recorded meeting, authorities said."

"The inspector described himself as a "mechanic and could fix a car for him and made a pistol-shooting motion with his hand," McCort wrote, noting that the term mechanic is often used to mean hit man or contract killer."

"Nisbet said that there were two "cars," one in Pleasanton and another in Santa Barbara, where one alleged victim attends college, authorities said."

"The inspector asked Nisbet for the name of the person in Santa Barbara, and Nisbet "mouthed" the name and said the "car" was 21 years old, McCort wrote."

Apparently the person tried to solicit the murder of someone from Pleasanton and currently in southern California.

This story has been covered by the Contra Costa Times, the Chronicle, the San Jose Mercury News, and the major daily newspapers across the US.
