Victims' Father Lunges At Larry Nassar In Michigan Courtroom

Margraves apologized, explaining he had been hearing his daughters' statements for the first time.

Before running at Nassar, Margraves called Nassar a "son of a b****", and the judge told him not to swear in court. I understand this is a remarkable situation. The judge says she can't do that.

"There is no way that this court is going to issue any type of punishment, given the circumstances of this case", Cunningham said.

In the Nassar case, many victims have accused USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, where Nassar also worked, of sweeping complaints about his behavior under the rug for years.

Last week, ex-USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison on seven counts of criminal sexual conduct (on top of a 60-year sentence for child pornography received in December).

Margraves was one of more than 100 people permitted to address the court before Nassar's final sentencing.

Court deputies immediately stepped in to restrain Margraves.

It devastated him to hear their suffering, he told the judge, and to contemplate they may never be able to trust a man again.

The judge says Nassar didn't authorize the statements and has disavowed them. "All this is because of you".

The courtroom disturbance came after Margraves, standing alongside his daughters and wife, asked if Judge Janice Cunningham, as part of sentencing, would "grant me five minutes in a locked room" with Nassar. Cunningham declined and also turned down his request for "one minute".

Margraves was taken out of the courtroom and into police custody.

That gives Harden three of the top six performances in National Basketball Association history, with two of them coming this year. Harden leads the team with 31.6 points per game, and 9.1 assists per game.


There were gasps and tears in the courtroom.

Attorney General, Angela Povilaitis, said "we can not behave like this", and this type of behavior was letting the doctor exercise his power over them. "We can not behave like this".

Randall Margraves told reporters Friday that he's remorseful and embarrassed.

"My daughters are the heroes", he said, "and the victims and the survivors of this awful atrocity".

"I look over here and Larry Nassar's shaking his head, no, like it didn't happen". "I've failed my daughter".

"Their words have been meaningful, they have pierced my soul and I will carry their words with me for the rest of my life".

Soccer player Erin Blayer said she starting seeing Nassar for excruciating back pain at age 12.

"It's not that that's how we should respond".

Sheriff Tom Reich said his officers will investigate what happened in court and send a report to the local prosecutor. Nassar released a statement saying Smith's comments were a distraction and that his accusers' remarks "have pierced my soul".

An Indianapolis Star investigation of USA Gymnastics, begun in 2016, uncovered widespread sexual abuse of athletes by coaches and others and failures to alert authorities.
