Donations Flood In for Father Who Attacked Larry Nassar in Court

The father of three girls sexually abused by USA Gymnastics sports doctor Larry Nassar lunged at him in court

Randall Margraves speaks about Larry Nassar during during press conference on Friday, Feb. 2, 2018, at the Grewal Law office in Okemos.

The chaotic scene began minutes after sisters Lauren and Madison Margraves had concluded tearful victim statements on the second day of a sentencing hearing in Eaton County, following similar presentations by scores of other women during previous court sessions. "I thank Judge Cunningham and all the court system for their leniency on me", he said.

After listening to his daughters' victim impact statements Friday, Margraves lunged at Nassar and was restrained by court officials. However, he would still explain why he attempted to attack Nassar.

Margraves says he lost control when it appeared that Nassar was shaking his head during his daughters' statements. His comments to the judge spawned the hashtag #GiveHimAMinute. But she also says it's wrong to "combat assault with assault". And, when they were injured in those sports, they took them to a world-renowned doctor.

A tall, burly man with thick gray hair, Margraves said his relationship with his daughters had always been "strained, distant and hard".

Margraves almost reached Nassar when he rushed the doctor shortly before 10 a.m. Friday during the second day of Nassar's sentencing hearing in Eaton County.

Eaton County Sheriffs officers restrain Randall Margraves after he lunged at Larry Nassar. On Friday, he said he had not yet heard his daughter's testimony.

Margraves is the father of Lauren and Madison Margraves, two young women who had spoken emotionally about how Nassar abused them just before their father addressed the court. Margraves then asked for "five minutes" alone with Nassar.

Following the incident, Judge Janice Cunningham appealed everyone in presence to maintain their composure.

"This is letting him have this power over us", she said.

Randall Margraves then ran at Nassar and almost reached him before Newburg intervened. She said she and her sisters had found it hard to speak to their father about their experiences.

Morgan Margraves says her father was hearing some details for the first time. But she added that the family realizes "justice can not be served through one individual".

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