CHARLOTTE, Mich. (AP) — A sentencing hearing has resumed for Larry Nassar after a father of three of his victims tried to attack the disgraced former sports doctor in a Michigan courtroom.
Randall Margraves was quickly tackled by bailiffs Friday when he lunged at Nassar. Two of Margraves’ daughters are among more than 30 victims who’ve given statements during the hearing, which began Wednesday.
The judge resumed the hearing after about 25 minutes. She said the pain and suffering endured by Nassar’s victims is “unthinkable,” but that families can’t react with physical violence.
The hearing focuses on sexual abuse that occurred while Nassar worked with Twistars, an elite Michigan gymnastics club.
More than 150 girls and women confronted Nassar in a separate case focused on his time with Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics. He was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison in that case.
