Accused killer and former Abbotsford resident Jamie Bacon has lost an appeal of his 2010 conviction on 10 firearms charges.
The B.C. Court of Appeal ruled July 27 that Bacon's rights were not violated when Surrey provincial court Judge Jean Lytwyn allowed evidence about loaded guns and magazines found in a vehicle Bacon used.
Bacon's lawyer David Layton argued in March before the appeal court that because there were problems with the original search warrant in place when the guns were inadvertently found by police, they should not have been allowed into evidence.
But three appeal court justices accepted the Crown lawyer's arguments that the appeal should be dismissed.
