  • Father Lunges at Larry Nassar During Eaton County Sentencing Hearing

During his sentencing hearing today, Mr. Margraves asked the judge to be given "five minutes in a locker room with that demon". Would you do that? Then he asked just for 1 minute, before running across the MI courtroom towards Nassar. When the judge would not grant his request, Randall rushed toward the defendant's table and attempted to attack Dr. Nassar.

When Cunningham inevitably declined, Margraves said, "Well, I'm going to have to." before charging the stand on a straight line for Nassar.

He was then escorted out of the courtroom.

As a cuffed Margraves was being led out of the courtroom amid cries from his daughters and wife, he said: "Where is he?"

"You can not behave like this".

"I don't want to see another parent arrested or put in handcuffs", Povilaitis said. She urged families to "use your words". "Do not use physical violence".

Watch a clip of the incident above.

Nassar's sentencing hearing has been suspended after Randall Margraves, the father of three of the victims, lunged at the 54-year-old.

Victims were taken to be treated by him at Michigan State University, where he worked as a sports doctor between 1997 and 2016. Cunningham opened Friday's session by describing Smith's comments as "unfortunate".

"I-I, that is not-" she began. "Would you do that?" he asked the judge. It does not show the right message. "It actually just causes more pain and more discomfort and certainly we have enough of that in this courtroom as a result of the defendant's actions".

"We can not react by using physical violence and assault against someone who is and has performed criminal acts", Judge Cunningham said.

Margrave apologized and said he has calmed down, and promised he wouldn't attend any other hearings. I've dealt with my daughters very delicately, I realize they may never trust a man again. A minimum of 25 to 40 years is expected to be added to Nassar's sentence. They had three children together, two daughters and a son, before divorcing in 2017.

Nassar is facing a second sentencing hearing, this time in Eaton County Circuit Court in Charlotte, Mich., which centers on assault charges related to abuses he committed at Twistars, a gymnastics club run by former Olympic coach John Geddert.
