man whose daughter had a child with a high-profile gang figure has been sentenced to 3-1/2 years in prison for his role in a conspiracy to import cocaine from Mexico.

10:35 |

Wayne Scott, a 56-year-old truck driver from Abbotsford, B.C., was convicted earlier this year along with Jarrod Bacon of conspiracy to traffic cocaine.

The pair were busted in a reverse-sting operation in which a police agent offered to sell 100 kilograms of cocaine for $3 million.

Scott, whose daughter had a child with Bacon, asked for a conditional sentence and claimed he was manipulated by a friend, who was the police agent, and Bacon to do something he wouldn’t otherwise do.

Associate Chief Justice Austin Cullen agrees Scott’s involvement was low and was out of character, but he says Scott still had free will and appeared to be motivated by profit.

Cullen says given the seriousness of the alleged conspiracy, a conditional sentence isn’t appropriate in this case, but noted a 3-1/2 year sentence is far below the usual range of sentences for drug trafficking.
