Victims' father apologizes for trying to attack Nassar

Randall Margraves, the father of three daughters who said they were sexually abused by Larry Nassar, charged the disgraced doctor in court Friday during sentencing.

"I would ask you as part of this sentencing to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon", Randall Margraves said following his daughters' statements.

Security rushed to stop him and grabbed him from behind before he was able to reach Nassar.

The judge refused, riling Margraves to run up and attack Nassar.

The judge replied that was not an option and rebuked Margraves for his vulgar language in calling Nassar "a son of a bitch" in court.

Randall Margraves then ran at Nassar and almost reached him before Newburg intervened.

"Would you give me one minute?" During an earlier hearing after Nassar pleaded guilty to molesting young women under the guise of medical treatment, he was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison.

Federal Bureau of Investigation raises 'grave concerns' about GOP intelligence memo, warns against its release
The Justice Department sent a letter to Nunes last week calling the potential release of the memo "extremely reckless". What's more , Nunes might have consulted - indeed, colluded - with the White House in drafting the memo.

Gasps, cries and shouts filled the courtroom as Margraves was wrestled to the ground, knocking things off a desk on the way down, and handcuffed while Nassar was taken out to safety. Margraves asked the officers detaining him, "What if this happened to you guys?"

A dramatic scene unfolded Friday when the father of three daughters accusing Larry Nassar of sexual abuse lunged at Nassar in a courtroom.

Judge Cunningham stated that there was "no way" she would punish Margraves for his attempted attack on Nassar "given the circumstances of the case", as she believed every word that came out of his mouth during his apology. So they can ensure this never happens in any sport again. "Give me one minute with that bastard".

"It was hard for my dad to hear what each of us experienced explicitly for the first time today", Morgan said.

That's one reason why the judge let him go instead of punishing him for contempt. "I don't disagree that as a parent and the victims that you want people held accountable, I don't disagree with that, use the legal system to do it. Use the system of justice that's here", said Hon.
