The father of three daughters abused by Larry Nassar is making headlines after trying to violently attack the former doctor in court. The incident occurred on Friday. The father was tackled and arrested by security, according to CNN.
The father, according to reports, has been absolutely distraught. In anger, he began to curse at Nassar, but the judge remarked that such language isn't allowed in court. The father then requested personal alone time with the "demon."
"I would ask you, as part of the sentencing, to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon," he requested. "Would you give me one minute?"
The judge declined this unusual request and pointed out that such a request is incompatible with how our legal system works.
This was when the father began to sprint toward Nassar, yelling loudly "I want that son of a b***! Give me one minute with that b*****d."
This is when security tackled and detained the father.
Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis remarked that "you cannot behave like that. No one can behave like this. I want to make sure it's crystal clear."
But as the father was being removed from the courtroom, he responded, "You haven't lived through it, lady."
NBC News reports that the anger boiled over after two of the Margraves' daughters had just finished providing a victim impact statement against Nassar, who recently pleaded guilty to abusing 10 girls and is accused by more than 250 others.
Lauren Margraves, who Nassar molested during an appointment when she was only 13 years old, remarked that her parents have also suffered as a result of Nassar's actions. She says that she can see the suffering on the faces of her mom and dad, who want to do something to fix the situation but unfortunately cannot.
The younger sister was crying at the lectern, claiming that her entire family has "gone through hell" throughout the past months as a result of the tragedy.
Nassar 54, was a doctor for USA Gymnastics and a sports medicine specialist for Michigan State University. Last week he was sentenced in Ingraham County to 40 to 175 years for molesting numerous girls. He faces a similar sentence in Eaton County for abusing three girls. On top of that, he has been sentenced to 60 years for child pornography.
His plea agreement permits accusers to provide impact statements. Nearly 200 will have done so by the end of the hearings.
In recent news, new details have emerged in the California Middle School shooting.
