Father of victim lunges toward Nassar at court sentencing

The father of three daughters who have been abused by Larry Nassar tried to attack the former doctor just moments ago in a MI court room during his sentencing case.

A local journalist reported Margraves was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs.

Just prior to this, his daughter Lauren Margraves told the court in her testimony "last year and a half of my life has been a insane whirlwind and there's no reason it should have been that way".

Before lunging at Nassar, the father of the Margraves sisters asked the judge for five minutes alone with Nassar in a locked room. Then he asked just for 1 minute, before running across the MI courtroom towards Nassar.

She also reports that Attorney General Angela Povilaitis plead with others in the room to not follow Margraves' example and to not give Nassar this power.

Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Rosemaire Aquilina sentenced Nassar last month to up to 175 years behind bars following an emotionally charged seven-day sentencing hearing.

Friday's hearing started with controversy after the judge at the MI court had to address comments made by lawyer Sharon Stone to a radio station, in which she said she had doubts about the large numbers of people who are victims. When he called Nassar a name, the judge interrupted and told him not to use that type of language in her courtroom.

I knew they were gonna read a statement. When the judge would not grant his request, Randall rushed toward the defendant's table and attempted to attack Dr. Nassar.

Margraves was held in contempt of court, but was not fined or jailed.

After Margreaves was removed, the lead prosecutor, Angela Povilaitis, told the public gallery: "I understand Mr Margraves' frustration, but you can not do this".

Over 150 women have testified against Nassar for sexual abuse. "That's not how our legal system...." she began, but was unable to finish as the father lunged for Nassar.

In a plea agreement reached past year, Nassar pleaded guilty to ten sexual assault in both Ingham and Eaton counties.

In December, Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Madison was much more emotional as she read her statement to the courtroom.
