The dad who tried to attack disgraced sports physician Larry Nassar during a court hearing Friday is getting thousands of dollars in donations as of Saturday. He then asked the judge for personal time alone with the "demon".
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.
Here is a full video of Margraves' attempted attack on Nassar.
The judge replied that was not an option and rebuked Margraves for his vulgar language in calling Nassar "a son of a bitch" in court.
The father then bolted towards Nassar, seated in an orange jump suit behind a nearby table.
Extremely hurt of how situations turned, Randall Margraves regretted "failing" his daughters, whom he said, "I delivered unintentionally my three daughters to a demon who had his own twisted and sick agenda for his own demented desires".
"I came here in support of my daughters ..."
Moments before Margraves' stunning courtroom charge, one of his daughters, Lauren Margraves, had told the judge that her parents were "filled with regret" because they took the girls to see Nassar.
A dramatic scene unfolded Friday when the father of three daughters accusing Larry Nassar of sexual abuse lunged at Nassar in a courtroom.
Margraves says he lost control when it appeared that Nassar was shaking his head during his daughters' statements. As officers pulled him from the room, he implored them, "What if this happened to you guys?"
Cunningham could have given Margraves a jail sentence or fine as she considered whether to hold him in contempt of court. "The guilt they have will never go away".
"It was hard for my dad to hear what each of us experienced explicitly for the first time today", Morgan said.
"I'm not exactly sure what he would have done if he saw him", she said.
Meanwhile, the coordinator of the women's national team for USA Gymnastics has stepped down in the latest departure to rock the embattled organization in the wake of a sexual abuse scandal centered on Nassar.
"There is no way this court is going to issue any type of punishment given the circumstances of this case".
USA Gymnastics said in a statement that it had accepted Liukin's resignation.
