Father of Nassar victims lunges at doctor in court

Theis On Committee Investigating Nassar Scandal At MSU

Two of Randall Margraves's daughters had finished delivering their statements when their father used profanity toward Nassar before being reprimanded by the judge.

After two of his daughters, Madison Rae and Lauren spoke to the court, Randall asked Judge Janice Cunningham if he could say a couple of words. He asked for a minute, and she said she couldn't allow that.

Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis, the lead prosecutor, warned the gallery not to repeat Margraves' outburst, saying it's not helping the victims or the community. When Cunningham said that wasn't possible, he asked for one minute, and when she refused again, he rushed at Nassar.

After the incident, the judge cleared the courtroom and took a slight break.

The judge accepted his apology and said he can be released. "That's not how our legal system works".

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".

The dramatic intervention brought Nassar's final sentencing hearing on sexual abuse charges to an abrupt end.

Despite being drafted in the 2011 draft, Mirotic would not see an National Basketball Association court until the 2014 season. The Bulls will also send a second round pick to the Pelicans in the swap, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski .

"Well, I'm going to have to", Margraves responded, and he launched into a sprint toward Nassar.

The Wall Street Journal also said on Thursday that U.S. Olympic officials did not intervene after being told in 2015 that USA Gymnastics had uncovered possible abuse by Nassar. At least one of Margraves' daughters covered her face in shock as police swarmed on Margraves and ultimately brought the distraught father to the ground, restraining him and then escorting him out of the proceeding.

The hearing resumed approximately 20 minutes later. I understand Mr. Margraves' frustration, but you can not do this.

More than 30 victims have given statements so far during the hearing, which began Wednesday and is expected to stretch into next week.

She doubled down on Povilaitis' comments, saying: "We can not react by using physical violence and assault against someone who has performed criminal acts". But you can not do this.

Last week, Nassar was sentenced to between 40 to 175 years in prison.

Over 150 women have testified against Nassar for sexual abuse.
