Jamie Bacon pleads guilty in Surrey Six executions

13 years after one of the most notorious gang killings in BC history, Jamie Bacon has pleaded guilty. The former leader of the Red Scorpion gang entered a guilty plea Thursday afternoon to conspiracy to commit murder in the Surrey six killings in October 2007. In May, the B.C. Court of Appeal ordered a new trial for Bacon after prosecutors appealed a December 2017 stay of the charges. Bacon’s defence lawyer said if the judge accepts their proposal, factoring in time served, his client will have “somewhere between five or six years left to serve.”
