This is interestings.
According to CBS San Francisco, the FBI raid in the Bay Area and Sacramento area that nabbed a California State Senator, also gobbled up an NFL agent who’s now facing federal chargers for a murder-for-hire scheme.
Marlon Sullivan has been charged with being involved in a murder-for-hire conspiracy, gun and drug trafficking and selling fraudulent credit cards, according to the federal complaint.
He is alleged to be an associate of San Francisco political consultant Keith Jackson and his son, Brandon Jackson, who are facing similar charges.
In the complaint Sullivan is quoted by an undercover FBI agent as saying murder for hire is “easy work” and that ”I will put eyes on the guy and have my boy knock him down.” According to the complaint, when the undercover agent said he thought Sullivan would bring someone from the East Coast to murder the intended target, Sullivan replied, “I got a hundred niggas, I still got my ties to the street. I got young boys who love me.”
Sullivan is a sports agent with Alamo-based The Novo Agency, headed by longtime pro football agent Jeff Sperbeck. Among Novo’s former clients are pro football Hall of Famers Ronnie Lott, John Elway and Jim Plunkett.
Among their current clients are San Francisco 49ers running back LaMichael James, Oakland Raiders guard Mike Brisiel and Buffalo Bills quarterback Dennis Dixon.
