Gangster Jamie Bacon will remain in jail while he awaits trial on a charge of counselling murder. The Red Scorpion leader was denied bail in B.C. Supreme Court on Tuesday morning, keeping him behind bars after more than eight years already spent in pre- trial custody.

Bacon’s mother Susan attended both of the hearing days. His father David was there only on Dec. 22. They were both in the courtroom today.

Bacon, 32, was charged with murder and conspiracy in connection with the infamous 2007 Surrey Six slayings.

But on Dec. 1, 2017, Justice Kathleen Ker stayed those charges with little explanation after a secret hearing. The Crown has announced that it filed an appeal of Ker’s ruling.

Bacon still faces a charge of counselling to commit an indictable offence — murder — for the failed hit on a former gang associate in December 2008. The man survived the shooting.

That charge is scheduled to go to trial in April 2018. Bacon is seeking to be released until then.

There are three general reasons why someone can be denied bail. The first is that they might not appear for their trial. The second is that there is a likelihood that they would commit a crime or be a threat to public safety if released. And the third is that the public’s confidence in the administration of justice would be harmed by the release. A person may be detained for one or more of those reasons.

The hitmen were accompanied by a man who can only be identified as Person X. He earlier pled guilty to second-degree murder.

Both Haevischer and Johnston were convicted of first-degree murder, but have appealed their convictions.
