Then I gotta hear that and I look over here and Larry Nassar is shaking his head no like it didn’t happen.
Margraves was taken out of the courtroom and into police custody.
Another emotion that may have prompted physical action for Margraves was shame for not being the protective father men work hard to be, especially for their daughters. Matthew Newburg is also one who has gotten death threats for representing Nassar. Her note was signed, “The world”. Earlier Friday, a father of three of Nassar’s accusers tried to attack Nassar. Some wrote that they couldn’t blame Margraves, that they probably wouldn’t have reacted any differently if they were in his shoes.
Nassar was sentenced last week by a MI state judge to 40 to 175 years in prison after earlier pleading guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conducting molesting girls under the guise of medical treatment, .
Randall Margraves told reporters Friday that he’s remorseful and embarrassed. The American justice system would do its job, they noted. Testimony has resumed and you can watch on our Facebook page. “Why put your own families future in further danger by doing this?”
Prior to the incident, two of Margraves’ daughters told the judge that Nassar had sexually abused them and another sister under the appearance of giving them medical treatment.
“But”, he continued, “we should DEFINITELY pay his bail and legal fees”.
He made the comments after his daughter Lauren Margraves had just finished telling the court that the “last year and a half of my life has been a insane whirlwind and there’s no reason it should have been that way”.
“Putting that together with his reaction kind of set me off a little bit”, Margraves said. “I’m definitely calmed down”.
“Their words have been meaningful, they have pierced my soul and I will carry their words with me for the rest of my life. I can only hope that when the day comes that Larry Nassar has ended his days on this earth that he will be escorted to one of the deepest darkest hottest pits in hell there is”, Randall Margraves said.
Lauren, who said Nassar molested her during an appointment when she was just 13 years old, told Cunningham that her parents were “filled with regret” for taking them to Nassar.
“Those are the true voices that will lead us into a better society and handleing situations like this”, said Roberts. I was going to stop by the courthouse for support, I knew my daughters were going to make an impact statement, I did not know the content in the impact statement.
“As a mother, I have an important message also”, said Lynn Erickson, mom of Ashley Erickson.
“It’s very saddening that somebody knew about it and didn’t speak up to protect their athletes when we go out to represent their country with our full hearts”, Biles said Friday.
