As the Nassar Trial unfolds, the public hears more and more incidents of young girls and women who were sexually abused by Larry Nassar, former USA Gynamstics and Michigan State University Doctor. But this morning, the courtroom got physically violent when one father lunged at Nassar after two of his daughters delivered their victim impact statements.
Randall Margraves asked Judge Cunningham to speak after his daughters shared their statements. His request was granted and after using profanity was requested not to do so in the courtroom. Following this, he asked the judge that upon sentencing he made a request:
“I would ask you to, as part of the sentencing, to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon.”
Cunningham said she wasn’t able to do this, and as a result Margraves lunged over the table and attempted to attack him.
This afternoon, Margraves went before Judge Cunningham who said there will not be charges pressed due to the circumstances surrounding the incident.
