Father of victims tries to attack Larry Nassar in court

04 February 2018

During the sentencing hearing for Larry Nassar the doctor with US gymnastics in Michigan State University, one of the fathers of three of the victims was given the opportunity by the judge in the case to say a few words, speak his mind basically before the sentence was handed down.

The father of three girls who said they were abused by Larry Nassar lunged at the former gymnastics doctor during his sentencing hearing Friday morning.

Nassar and his attorneys were both escorted from the courtroom while police subdued Margraves.

"I recognize that Mr. Margraves had three daughters that he has had to watch go through the pain and the hurt", the judge said.

Margraves apologized for losing his cool.

"I would ask you to, as part of the sentencing, grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon", he asked.

While Margraves never actually reached Nassar, there was still the possibility he could be punished for trying to attack him.

"You can not behave like that", she said.

The father, Randall Margraves, was almost within striking distance of Nassar before officers tackled him to the floor in front of shocked spectators including his daughters.

While at the podium, Margraves asked for Nassar's sentencing to include time alone with Nassar. I also recognize that what I am feeling pales in comparison to the paint, trauma, and emotional destruction that all of you are feeling.

She said she couldn't even fathom the emotions Margraves was going through, and recognized that he reacted in anger and rage.

Lavonda said her daughter confided in her husband long after Nassar abused her as a 12-year-old girl.

According to Lansing State Journal, Margraves could be heard saying while being tackled, "Give me one minute with that b*stard". The Wall Street Journal also reported on Thursday that US Olympic officials did not intervene after being told in 2015 that USA Gymnastics had uncovered possible abuse by Nassar.

Judge Cunningham asked that Randall not get himself into trouble in that courtroom.
