That's when Margraves jumped at Nassar. He did so after pleading with the judge to give him just one minute with Nassar, and of course she could not grant him that request.
Margraves asked Judge Janice Cunningham if he could have "five minutes in a locked room with this demon".
"We have over 265 identified victims and an infinite number of victims in the state, in the country, and all over the world", Cunningham said in the small courtroom Wednesday morning. "Lou Anna I know you resigned but you owe me and the other survivors one hell of an apology".
"I have, in 34 years, never heard of releasing the sacrotuberous ligament from that type of an approach", Distin said Friday. "I'd like to apologize to everyone in the courtroom and all the officers, they are fine upstanding officers who had to deal with my outburst", Margraves told the Judge according to ABC News. It is unclear how this will affect the enrollment of MSU or who else will step down. Their emotions, along with the now more than 250 victims and their extended family, will feel affected from what Nassar did, for the foreseeable future. "I lost control, I apologize 100 times".
Randall Margraves said he was embarrassed by his actions earlier in the day, and he was at the court to support his daughters. Morgan read her statement during Nassar's Ingham County, Mich., sentencing in January.
"I can not tolerate or condone vigilantism or any type of action that comes down to an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth", Cunningham told Margraves.
It's a reaction any parent would understand - that of an anguished father determined to avenge pain inflicted on his beloved daughters - but no one expected one father to act on it.
"That's not how our legal system works", the judge said. The Meridian Township police vowed to make changes to their handling of sexual assault cases.
Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in state prison for seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in the first of his two sentencing hearings last week. He was sentenced in December to 60 years in federal prison for possessing thousands of images of child pornography.
Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis told families in the courtroom to "use your words", not violence.
"We can not and I can not tolerate or condone vigilantism or any other type of action that basically comes down to an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth", she added. I understand Mr. Margraves' frustration, but you can not do this.
"I see the look in their faces and I know they want to be able to do something but they can't", she told Nassar.
Impact statements came to an end Friday afternoon.
