Randall Margraves is the distraught and devastated father of three girls who say they were molested by former USA gymnastics team physician Larry Nassar.
Mr. Margraves had a chance to face the sexual abuser during his sentence hearing and just as his daughter had finished giving her victim statement on the second day of hearings at a court in Eaton County –an enraged Randall Margraves tried to have his own encounter with the disgraced doctor.
Randall, his wife and two of his three daughters arrived to the Michigan courtroom where women have been giving testimony about the abuse they suffered under his supposed care – those women include his daughters, Lauren and Madison Margraves; their sister is also said to have been abused under Nassar’s care.
Mr. Margraves then asked Judge Janice Cunningham for “five minutes” alone in a room with the former doctor. He can be heard saying
“I would ask you as part of the sentencing to grant me five minutes in a locked room with this demon”
He was adamant as he pressured the judge saying, would you do that? “Yes or no”? When the judge declined, Margraves shook his head at Nassar and called him a “son of a *****”. He insisted, this time asking for only one minute alone with Nassar and when the judge firmly replied “No sir, that’s not how our legal system works”
Randall then lunged at the doctor and chaos erupted. The husband and father of the victims, had to be was wrestled to the ground and put in handcuffs while Nassar was taken out to safety. Gasps, cries and shouts could be heard inside the courtroom.
