Father who tried to attack Nassar in court says he's "no hero"

Posted February 04, 2018

After asking Judge Cunningham if he could have five minutes alone in a locked room with Nassar, having his request denied, and then asking if he could have just one minute alone in a locked room with him, Margraves charged at Nassar.

Judge Janice Cunningham ultimately decided not to punish Margraves for breaching court rules, but said she could have. He says, "This can not be a lawless society".

Margraves said hearing details of his daughters' abuse for the first time Friday, combined with the sight of Nassar shaking his head drove him to attack the disgraced doctor.

Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison on child pornography charges in December, and he was sentenced to an additional 40 to 175 years in state prison last month on sexual assault charges following a seven-day sentencing hearing during which 156 women read victim impact statements in front of him in court.

The environment turned chaotic post the victim statement reading by sisters Lauren and Madison Margraves against Nassar, who will hear his final sentence on Monday. She says he reacted "like most fathers would have done, and probably wanted to do, in a situation like this".

"I'm not exactly sure what he would have done if he saw him", she said.

"I'm not here to upstage my daughters, I'm here to help them heal", said Margraves.
