Bégin was sentenced to 11 years in prison after he attacked a 16-year-old girl at a Beauce hotel in 1994. He kidnapped her at knifepoint and locked her in the trunk of his car before he sexually assaulted her, punched her in the face and tried to strangle her.

Notes from Bégin's parole hearing in January 2007 concluded that he showed no remorse for his crime, failed to complete treatment and was a high risk to reoffend.

Prosecutors said they are concerned Bégin could reoffend...That's an understatement
