Larry Nassar, a former USA Gymnastics doctor, was recently accused of sexually assaulting young athletes while pretending to give them medical treatment. He was sentenced to 40-175 years behind bars, with more than 60 women expected to deliver victim impact statements.

The father of three girls, Randall Margraves, attended one of the hearings and asked the judge if he could spend five minutes alone with Nassar, “In a locked room with this demon.” When he was told he could not, Margraves immediately charged Nassar before being tackled to the ground by court officers. While being removed from the room, Margraves asked, “What if this had happened to you guys?”

Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis spoke to the remaining victims, saying that they could not behave like this. “This is letting him have the power over us.” Judge Cunningham resumed court after a short break and said, “We cannot react by using physical violence and assault against someone who is and has performed criminal acts. That’s not how our system works.”

Margraves was told that he could be punished, but would not be, as the Judge trusted Margraves would not have another outburst. Margraves apologized to the Judge and to the court for his actions which he said were a response to the content of the statements his daughters read in court. “I lost control,” Margraves says, “I calmed down. I’m embarrassed. I’m not here to upstage my daughters. I’m here to help them heal.”
