Fundraiser for dad who attacked Larry Nassar takes off

Fundraiser for dad who attacked Larry Nassar takes off

Randall Margraves, father of three daughters abused by of Larry Nassar, left, lunges at Nassar, bottom right, Friday, Feb. 2, in Eaton County Circuit Court in Charlotte, Mich.

The attack came near the end of the third, and final, sentencing hearing for Nassar, with victim after victim facing their abuser often with their parents at their side.

A dramatic video of the incident shows Randall Margraves at first standing calmly and calling Nassar a "son of a b****".

Mr Margraves then asked the judge for just one minute, to awkward laughter from the courtroom.

In handing down that sentence, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina told Nassar: "Sir, you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again".

Margraves was then wrestled to the ground by three bailiffs, and was led from the court shouting "What if this happened to you guys?".

Her mother apparently reported her missing after she had gone to work on a marijuana farm in Humboldt County, California . The deputy said that they had spoken with Bekah M. on the phone and confirmed that she is, in fact, alive and well.

"What Mr. Nassar did was disgusting", the judge stated once Margraves was brought back into the courtroom.

She told him: "I am here to move on and leave you in my past". Mariah McClain, who testified about how Nassar abused her, said she had to leave the courtroom when Margraves erupted. Margraves later apologized for his actions, saying "I'm not here to upstage my daughters". "This is not helping your children".

The judge resumed the hearing after about 25 minutes.

"You know that I can't do that", Cunningham said.

"We cannot react by using physical violence", she said, noting she could not imagine Margraves' pain as a father.

Judge Cunningham says there was "no way" she will punish Margraves for the attempted court attack due to the crimes committed by Nassar and the anguish felt by the families.

"What is relevant is for the court to hear each individual story and how the criminal actions of the defendant impacted each individual's life", Cunningham said.

"This can not be a lawless society, I know that". He has been held in a holding cell since being taken down by Sheriff's Deputies.

"I'm not here to upstage my daughters", he said.

"As a mother, I have an important message also", said Lynn Erickson, mom of Ashley Erickson. This is a strong family, we will get through it. He had already been sentenced to 60 years in prison on child pornography charges. With those sports came injuries, and he was advised to send his daughters to see Nassar, a well-respected doctor who treated athletes from Michigan State and USA Gymnastics.

Among his over 265 victims are US Olympic medallists McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and Simone Biles.

As you may know, more than 130 women and girls have accused of Nassar of inappropriate or sexually abusive behavior.

'Veiled threats' against women when discussing equal pay at the BBC
The BBC identified 188 roles in need of "upward pay adjustment" but they involve more men - 98 - than women, 90. Since the report, the BBC has reportedly offered "revisions" to some women's pay at the network.

Before rushing to the table where Nassar was sitting, the man had asked to have "five minutes in a locked room with that demon".
