Fugitive Level 3 sex offender surrenders at Le Sueur County jail
The Star Tribune reports a Level 3 sex offender from Minnesota who shed his electronic monitoring bracelet in southeastern Minnesota on Monday and fled surrendered early Thursday, state authorities said.
George D. McIntosh Jr., 25, cut off his GPS ankle bracelet while in Faribault on Monday, according to the state Department of Corrections.
McIntosh turned himself in about 4 a.m. at the Le Sueur County jail, corrections officials said. State statistics through September 2011 show that 97 percent of fugitive Level 3 offenders are apprehended within 72 hours.
The department issued a warrant for the arrest of McIntosh, who was released from prison Aug. 30 after serving time for two third-degree criminal sexual conduct convictions in Le Sueur County.
McIntosh was then placed in Le Sueur County on intensive supervised release, the most stringent form of monitoring the state has for released offenders.
McIntosh’s assaults on his victims, girls ages 14 and 15, occurred at his home in Waterville in July 2007, according to court records. He used alcohol to “gain compliance” from the girls, both of whom he knew, the records said.
