There’s nothing more horrific than coming to discover your child, the innocent little baby you helped bring into the world, has been sexually abused and violated in the most heinous way imaginable.
The amount of rage, pain, and mental anguish this can put both you and your child through is nearly indescribable, therefore, what Randall Margraves attempted to do in court early Friday morning is quite understandable.
Margraves is the father of three gymnasts who were abused by doctor Larry Nassar who is on trial for his crimes, not only against them, but a staggering number of other young girls as well.
Things got super heated in the courtroom when Margraves wanted a minute with Nassar and ended up going after him right then and there.
The Daily Wire is reporting:
On Friday morning, Randall Margraves, whose three daughters were allegedly sexually assaulted by former USA Gymnastics national team osteopathic physician Larry Nassar, stood facing Nassar in the Michigan courtroom. Margarves, whose daughters Lauren and Madison Rae had just finished speaking, plaintively asked the judge if he could have five minutes alone with the “demon” in a locked room. When the judge refused, saying, “You know I can’t do that,” Margraves hurled himself toward Nassar, prompting security officers to restrain him as Margraves cried out, “Let me at that son-of-a-*****!”
The incident began as Margraves, with two of his daughters standing behind him, asked the judge, “I would ask you to, as part of this sentencing, to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon. Would you do that?”
Judge: “That is not —”
Margarves, determined to get an answer, “Yes or no?”
Margraves, persisting, “Would you give me one minute?
Judge: “You know I can’t do that. That’s not how I do business.”
Margraves began, “Well, I’m going to have to—“ then lunged at Nassar, but was blocked by Nassar’s attorney Matthew Newburg and then was restrained by at least three deputies. They grabbed Margraves, got him in a headlock and got him on the floor, as he cried, “Let me at that son-of-a-*****! I want that! I want that son-of-a-*****! Give me one minute with that *******! One minute.”
As he was being escorted out of the courtroom, Margraves asked the deputies, “What if this happened to you guys?”
Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilatitis who is leading the prosecution against Nassar said, “You cannot behave like that. No one can behave like this. I want to make sure it’s crystal clear.”
Margraves responded by saying, ” You haven’t lived through it, lady.”
Nassar has been sentenced to a minimum of 40 years in prison with a maximum of 175 years for sexually assaulting a score of young girls. Some of his victims included members of the USA Olympic Gymnastic team such as Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney, Simone Biles, and more.
