A Nanaimo man accused of kidnapping another man and taking him to the ferry terminal was found guilty of unlawful confinement and assault last week,

William Michael Curry received a four-month conditional sentence and eight months probation, as well as a 10-year firearms prohibition, DNA order and
$100 victim surcharge.
The charges stem from an Oct. 30, 2010 incident in which Curry drove another man to first the Departure Bay ferry terminal and then the Duke Point
ferry terminal, after determining that they had missed the last sailing to Departure Bay, and telling him to leave the Island.

The shooting was the city’s first reported homicide of the year.
Police said both the suspect and the victim knew each other.
Laskoski is no stranger to police. He was in and out of Nanaimo court between 2001 and 2004, facing charges of assault, uttering threats, forcible
entry, mischief and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
But despite Laskoski’s troubled past, his cousin Lorne said he was a good friend and will be missed by family.
Lorne, who saw his cousin three months ago, was shocked at the death and holds fond memories of time they spent together, fishing for trout.
