“I cannot imagine how difficult the last 333 days have been” — Judge says to Jason Wallace during sentencing

Judgment says Wallace unintentionally shot and killed his friend HA Robert Green

When a Provincial Court Judge sentenced Jason Wallace to six years in jail for manslaughter, she offered her deepest sympathy and wished a “light at the end of the tunnel to ensure that you are back with your family as soon as possible.”

The judgment, which took place Nov. 3, has just been released online on the Provincial Court Judgment website.

Judge Ellen Gordon told Wallace: “I cannot imagine the guilt you must feel.” The judge is referring to when Wallace unintentionally killed “a good friend” — senior ranking Hells Angel Robert Keith Green, 56, during a gathering at a rural property in Langley on Oct. 16, 2016.

The next day, Wallace, 27, turned himself in to police and has been in custody ever since.

On Oct. 24, 2016, Shaun Allan Clary’s dismembered body was found on Robertson Crescent in Langley. Clary is said to have had ties to the 856 gang. Wallace has been linked to the 856 gang which got its name from the phone prefix.

Recently, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team came out to say the murders of Green and Clary are connected. No arrests have been made in that case.

On Nov. 3, Wallace was sentenced to six years and seven months in jail for the manslaughter of Green.

“This is really, if I may use the expression, a perfect case of manslaughter because you would never have intended to kill your friend, you had no animosity towards your friend and yet, because of your voluntary intoxication combined with a readily available firearm, this horrific circumstance occurred,” said Justice Gordon to Wallace during sentencing.

The judge credited Wallace for turning himself in and admitting responsibility.

The judge continued: “I cannot imagine how difficult the last 333 days have been and how difficult the rest of your time in custody will be.”

She called jails “horrific places.”

“Your lawyer says that you are determined to ensure that you are never back in conflict with the law,” she said.

“For you, I want there to be light at the end of the tunnel, and the light at the end of the tunnel will be working with your case management team to ensure that you are back with your family as soon as possible.”

Wallace is prohibited from owning or possessing firearms, ammunition and explosives for the rest of his life.

In September, Wallace was sentenced to six years in jail for running a large drug-making operation inside a rural Langley mansion. During the bust, $400,000 worth of cocaine, meth, heroin and drug making paraphernalia were seized, including weigh scales, brick pressing machines and pig dewormer used as an additive.

In 2007, Wallace stabbed a teenager at a house party in Brookswood. He didn’t know the victim and had crashed the grad party.
