William Joseph Carnegie
(35 years old in 1991)


Carnegie was sentenced to 2 years in a penitentiary followed by three years probation for threatning the life of a 41 year old female prostitue.

In July 1991, Carnegie picked-up the victim after he circled a downtown block three times at the corner of Broughton and Gordon streets. From there he drove her to a parking lot in James Bay where he suddenly pulled out a butcher knife, held it to her throat and threatened to kill her.

"This is your worst nightmare, isn't it." he said laughing.

He then forced her to masturbate him.

Carnegie was, at the time, serving a 90-day sentence on weekends for sexually assault a young girl.
He had a previous record for indecet assault and common assault.

The conditions of his sentencing was to have no contact with the victim while on probation and to stay out of a specified area of downtown between 11 pm and 7 am. The southern boundary of the "red zone" was set at Fort Street - which does not include the corner where Carnegie picked-up the victim.

It was recommended Carnegie serve his sentence at the Regional Psychiatric Centre at Matsqui Institution.

He was warned any more sexual offences committed and the Crown would likely seek to him him confined indefinitely as a dangerous offender.


People involved in this case:

Crown counsel Lesley Giles
defence counsel John Green
Judge Alan Filmer
