Victims' father lunges at Larry Nassar during sentencing hearing

Valeri Liukin steps down as as coordinator of US women's gymnastics team

Randall Margraves lunged at Dr. Larry Nassar after hearing his two daughters gave painful, personal and detailed victim impact statements about how Nassar sexually assaulted them during exams.

Before lunging for Nassar, Margraves requested a few minutes alone with him in a locked room. When the judge allowed him to speak, he called him a 'son of a b***'. It must be overcome and forced into retreat. WKAR's Katie Cook has more from the courtroom.

"Give me one minute with that bastard", Margraves said while being detained.

Sadly, he has gotten away with it, but the anger is still out there and rising to the surface.

The tough questions she endured from Nassar's lawyers at a preliminary hearing, before he pleaded guilty to molestation, only strengthened her reluctance.

Margraves explained that he did not know in advance what his daughters were going to say in court and was overcome with emotion. "To note, MSU detectives and the Meridian Township Police have been wonderful". Several have spoken in court during the sentencing, describing the guilt they feel for delivering their children to a sexual predator. This case focuses on his work at Twistars, an elite gymnastics club southwest of Lansing.

There was mild pandemonium in Eaton County court on Friday during disgraced U.S Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar's court proceedings for sexual abuse, CNN reports.

During the Ingham County hearing, revealed that reports of sexual misconduct involving Nassar had reached 14 staff members at MSU over two decades before he was sacked in September 2016.

Longtime Clinton County District Attorney and former Plattsburgh City Court Judge Penelope Clute, who writes the popular "The Law and You" column for the Press-Republican, recently addressed that very idea.

Judge Cunningham agreed to release him without a fine or punishment "given the circumstances of the case", she said, but still affirmed that he acted inappropriately.

Nassar worked at Michigan State University and at USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. When she obviously didn't grant him permission, he followed with "Would you give me one minute?"

The hearing later resumed with an appeal for calm from Judge Janice Cunningham. "He did not authorize those statements".

"It was just too much for me", she said. "While he did that, his thumb rested somewhere else down there". She acknowledged how deeply troubled the families were over Nassar's crimes.

Kathleen Lovellette said it is hard to wear Spartan apparel following Nassar's abuse. She said she's tried to commit suicide and even resorted to self-harm, covering her bodies with scars.

Nearly immediately, this family's getting professional advice to see one of the top doctors in his field, Larry Nassar.
