A father of three sexual abuse victims tried to attack the former Olympic and Michigan State University doctor found guilty of the sex crimes.
The incident took place Friday in a courtroom in Michigan during the sentencing hearing for Larry Nassar.
The father was identified as Randall Margraves. Two of his daughters, Lauren and Madison Margraves, had just given their victim impact statements with their parents by their side. The women said that they and another sister were abused by Nassar under the guise of medical treatment.
After their statements, the father looked at Nassar, shook his head and addressed the court. He called Nassar a profane name. Judge Janice K. Cunningham told the man not to use profanity.
Margraves then asked if Cunningham would give him "five minutes" alone with Nassar in a locked room. When she said she could not, he asked for one minute, and added that he was a distraught father.
He then ran toward Nassar, who was sitting nearby. Courtroom police stopped Margraves before he reached Nassar. They held Margraves on the ground and put him in handcuffs.
As police walked Margraves out of court, Michigan Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis advised families in the courtroom to use your words, not violence.
This is letting him have this power over us, Povilaitis said. We cannot behave like this. I understand this is a remarkable situation. But you cannot do this.
Margraves responded, You haven't lived through it, lady.
Later Friday, Margraves returned to the courtroom, still in handcuffs. He apologized to the judge for losing control. The judge said there was no way she would punish Margraves for contempt of court.
Cunningham told Margraves it was in her power to order a jail sentence, fine him thousands of dollars, or both. But, she said, I don't want to do that.
She told Margraves, I understand. Well, actually, I don't. I'm a parent. I can't say that I understand. I don't know what it would be like to stand there as a father and know that three of your girls were injured physically and emotionally by someone sitting in a courtroom. I can't fathom that.
Cunningham also urged Margraves and others in the courtroom to respect the rule of law.
The incident took place during the third and final sentencing hearing for Nassar. The charges in this case center on his work at Twistars, a well-known gymnastics club in Michigan.
Following a similar hearing that ended last week, Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in jail. More than 150 women and girls gave impact statements during sentencing.
Among them were U.S. Olympic gymnasts, including 2012 gold medalists Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Jordyn Wieber.
Late last year, Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in jail for possession of child pornography.
Nassar, 54, worked with USA Gymnastics for more than 20 years and traveled to four Olympic Games as the team doctor. He was also a longtime doctor at Michigan State University. Both MSU and USA Gymnastics have faced strong criticism for what some call enabling Nassar's abuse for years.
More than 250 women and girls have said Nassar abused them.

take place 发生
How many of you believe that there are meetings that take place without you?
William and Kate, both 28, have so far revealed only that the wedding will take place in either the spring or summer next year with bookmakers tipping July and August as favorites.
威廉和凯特今年都是28岁 。迄今为止，两人只透露说婚礼将在明年春天或夏天举行 。博彩公司认为七月或八月结婚的可能性较大 。
这次事件发生在周五，当时密歇根州正在对拉里 纳萨尔(Larry Nassar)举行听证会 。
这位父亲名为兰德尔 马格雷夫斯(Randall Margraves) 。他的两个女儿劳伦和麦迪逊在他和妻子的陪同下做了受害者控诉声明 。他的两个女儿都表示，她们和另一个姐妹被纳萨尔以治疗的名义虐待 。
她们做了声明之后，这位父亲就看着纳萨尔摇头，并在法庭上讲话 。他说这个人亵渎了纳萨尔这个名字 。法官贾尼斯 坎宁安(Janice K. Cunningham)请这位父亲注意措辞 。
随后，马格雷夫斯询问法官是否可以给他和纳萨尔五分钟共处密室的时间 。法官拒绝他的请求后，他又问一分钟是否可以，并补充说他只是一个悲痛欲绝的父亲罢了 。
随后他冲向坐在自己附近的纳萨尔 。还没等马格雷夫斯冲到纳萨尔那里，庭警就制止了他 。他们将马格雷夫斯制服在地，给他戴上了手铐 。
在警察移送马格雷夫斯出庭时，密歇根州首席检察官助理安吉拉(Angela Povilaitis)建议法庭上的所有家庭用语言，而非暴力 。
安吉拉表示，这反而会让他有权利控制我们，所以我们不能这样做 。我明白这时候动手看似很好，但不能动手 。
周五晚些时候，马格雷夫斯带着手铐重返法庭 。他为自己的失控而向法官道歉 。法官表示，她不会因为马格雷夫斯轻视法庭而惩罚他 。
坎宁安对马格雷夫斯说，她有权让马格雷夫斯入狱，罚他赔款数千美元，或者两者兼有 。但她说自己不想这样 。
她对马格雷夫斯说，我理解你的心情 。哦不，其实我也不理解 。就算我也为人父母，但我也不能说我理解你的心情 。因为我不知道作为一名父亲站在那个位置上，听到自己的三个宝贝女儿曾因法庭上的某个人而让肉体和心灵受伤 。所以我无法感同身受 。
这次事件发生在纳萨尔的第三次也是最后一次听证会上 。这个案件的罪名主要是与纳萨尔在Twistars体操俱乐部的工作有关 。Twistars体操俱乐部在密歇根州非常有名 。
继上周与此类似的一个听证会结束后，纳萨尔被判40-175年监禁 。判刑期间，150多名女性提供了受害者控诉声明 。
她们之中有美国奥运体操员，比如2012年的金牌获得者亚历山德拉 拉丝曼(Aly Raisman)、麦凯拉 马罗尼(McKayla Maroney)和乔婷 韦伯(Jordyn Wieber) 。
今年54岁的纳萨尔曾与美国体操协会二十多年合作二十多年，曾以队医的身份参加四次奥运会 。纳萨尔也曾长期担任密歇根州立大学的校医 。如今，密歇根州立大学和美国体操协会都因纵容纳萨尔多年虐待女性而备受诟病 。
