Given credit for time served, Bacon’s sentence now amounts to five years and seven months.
Bacon pleaded guilty in July to conspiracy to commit the murder of Corey Lal, the intended target of the killings that took place at the Balmoral Tower building in Surrey on Oct. 19, 2007.
A first-degree murder charge in connection with the Surrey Six case was stayed as part of the plea deal.
Families of the victims shed tears as Justice Kathleen Ker of the B.C. Supreme Court delivered the sentence.
A lawyer for Bacon, now 35, said previously if the sentencing submission is accepted, his client is looking at an additional five to six years in prison after time served is taken into account.
During Bacon’s sentencing hearing last month, the court heard in an agreed statement of facts that the killings were carried out to advance the drug trafficking business of the Red Scorpions gang.
Crown attorney Mark Wolf said the gang formed when Bacon and another gang leader began working together to expand their market using violence and intimidation to force others to surrender their drug lines.
