Jarrod Bacon's sentencing hearing set for April

A sentencing hearing has been set in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver for Jarrod Bacon, 28, of Abbotsford.

The hearing is slated to take place April 27, following Bacon's conviction last month of conspiracy to traffic cocaine. Co-accused Wayne Scott, 55, who was convicted of the same charge, is currently fighting the verdict, accusing the police of entrapment.

The pair were arrested and charged in November 2010 following an undercover operation in Abbotsford by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit.

Much of the Crown's case was based on wiretap evidence obtained with the co-operation of a police agent, identified in court only by the initials G.L., who was a friend of Scott's.
