REAL SCOOP: Bacon’s trial delayed again

Here’s my update and please take note that information about his background is banned until his jury trial:

Jamie Bacon’s trial delayed … again

Bacon is charged with counselling to commit murder related to an attempt on the life of a former associate on Dec. 31, 2008.

The trial for former Abbotsford resident Jamie Bacon has been delayed again.

A spokesperson for the B.C. Prosecution Service confirmed this week that the case has now been adjourned until Jan. 19, 2019.

“The trial was adjourned to allow counsel the opportunity to review further materials,” Alisia Adams, of the B.C. Prosecution Service, confirmed this week.

Asked if there could now be a stay application due to the length of time the case has taken to get to trial, Adams said:

“The B.C. Prosecution Service cannot comment further on this matter as it remains before the court.”

Jury selection for Bacon’s trial had been set to begin Nov. 5. But on Friday, issues arose that led to the two-month delay.

Some details of Bacon’s background are covered by a publication ban.

Bacon is charged with counselling to commit murder related to an attempt on the life of a former associate on Dec. 31, 2008.

His trial was originally set for April 2018, but was then adjourned to September 2018, then to Nov. 5 and now to early 2019 by B.C. Supreme Court Justice Catherine Wedge.
