A California golf coach jailed on 75 counts of child molestation chargers is now accused of attempting to hire a hit man to silence his victims.

In addition to the sexual abuse charges of three boys between 12 and 17 years old, Andrew Michael Nisbet, 32, is facing three felony charges of solicitation of murder.

KRON 4 reported that prosecutors said Nisbet exchanged letters with an informant discussing the details and prices to kill his victims.

The only logical punishment for pedophiles is death. These degenerate creatures condemn their victims to shattered lives. How many sucumb to substance abuse and / or suicide? It is a shame that our country refuses to face this growing problem, how did we become a nation devoid of justice?

Anyone who harms a child in any way should be severely punished. I'm tired and disgusted with hearing about these sickos, everyday, the criminals with this mentality shouldn't walk freely among people, for certain. They can't control their thinking, then act upon those sick thoughts. Drugs and alcohol play a part in this problem. Children should be protected by adults, not harmed in any way.
