Welcome to your daily Northern California Patch roundup! 

Today’s big story comes from Livermore Patch, where a golf pro stands accused of sexually abusing boys. More from the story:

“New charges involving an additional victim were filed today against an award-winning Livermore golf pro who is accused of sexually abusing boys he had been teaching.”

“Andrew Michael Nisbet, 31, who lives in Livermore and worked at the Las Positas Golf Course in that city, was charged last month with 65 felony counts involving two young boys. He now faces an additional 10 counts, most of which involve a third young boy.”

“Nisbet, who is being held without bail at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, was arraigned on the amended complaint against him -- which is 42 pages long -- in Alameda County Superior Court in Pleasanton Wednesday and is scheduled to return to court on Feb. 20 to enter a plea.”

Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Probable cause gets many people arrested. Guilty beyond a reasonable doubt is the legal challenge that must be met before you can call him all the names all of you have been doing. The police arrest many people who are never prosecuted or are found to be not guilty. The DA stacks the charges in hopes of making their case look good.

Maurice, nobody has said that he's not innocent in the eye's of the law. We all understand that he is innocent in the eyes of the law until proven guilty. Just because under the law of the land he's innocent it does not make him "not-guilty". We can call him whatever we want because we think he's guilty. It is true that the police arrest people that are never prosecuted and found to be not guilty but guess what, they still can be guilty. One thing is for certain, while he's isolated he'll have plenty of time to work on his grip.
