PLEASANTON, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say a popular Northern California golf teacher has pleaded guilty to molesting his students and plotting to kill them from jail.

Alameda County District Attorney spokeswoman Teresa Drenick says Andrew Nisbet of Livermore entered his pleas Thursday to seven felonies including murder solicitation, possessing child pornography and lewd and lascivious acts on a minor.

Under a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed nearly 80 felony charges that could have meant a life sentence. He’s scheduled to be sentenced to more than 27 years in prison next month.

The 32-year-old Nisbet was accused of sexually assaulting three boys between the ages of 12 and 17 from 2009 to 2012. He was arrested in December a day before he was to receive a PGA award for his work with young golfers.

Nisbet’s attorney, Timothy Rien, could not be reached for comment.
