MSOP client sentenced to 20 years for attempted murder, assault

A client of the Minnesota Sex Offender Program in Moose Lake has been sentenced to 20 years for attempted murder and assault after slashing a man’s throat, and punching another facility worker in the head in January.

On Friday, a Carlton County judge ordered George Mack, Jr., 42, serve that time at the St. Cloud Correctional Facility.

Officials say Mack allegedly used a weapon, made out of a razor blade, a toothbrush, dental floss and a rubber band to injure a clinical supervisor, who has been identified in court documents as Zachary Campbell, inside the MSOP building.

When Campbell tried to run from Mack, Mack chased him and was intercepted by another staff member, Donald Geil.

According to court documents, Mack allegedly punched Geil several times, striking him in his head and left rib area causing what authorities called “demonstrable injury.”

Authorities say Mack was then “subdued by several staff members and secured.”
