The enraged father of three daughters who were sexually abused by Larry Nassar lunged at the former USA Gymnastics national team doctor and tried to attack him during a sentencing hearing in a MI courtroom on Friday.

A man who tried to attack Larry Nassar in a MI courtroom has publicly apologized again and insists he's "no hero".

He had heard his daughters statements for the first time, and became emotional.

"No, sir, I can't do that", Judge Janice Cunningham said.

Would you do the same as this father if in this disgusting situation?

"You know I can't do that", Judge Cunningham answered.

Manchin: VP Pence's Comments Are Why Washington 'Sucks'
On Wednesday, he used a public event here to remind West Virginia voters that "Joe voted no" on tax cuts - a shot at Sen. Manchin responded to Pence in a statement, saying the vice president's attacks are why " Washington sucks".

But she said it was worst to "combat assault with assault".

"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", Cunningham said. Margraves' third daughter, Morgan, gave hers at the Ingham County sentencing last week, CNN reported. More than 30 victims have given statements so far.

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".

Randall Margraves rushed the table where Nassar was sitting after his daughters addressed the disgraced doctor. She doubts the sincerity of MSU officials in their apologies since it took so long for them to acknowledge Nassar's abuse. I will tell you that I believe in God almighty, I believe in Heaven and Hell and 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 - for him and people like him. "All this is because of you".

Margraves had seen Nassar for multiple minor injuries, but pulled a hamstring and broke a bone near her pelvis when she was 13.

There were gasps and tears in the courtroom. "We cannot react by using physical violence", she told the courtroom, noting she could not imagine Margraves' pain as a father.

Progressives, Trump Critics Plan Additional Responses to State of the Union
Hollywood's self-proclaimed political activists turned out to participate in the " People's State of the Union ". Since then, though, the tone of Trump's speeches has waned, with a year full of squabbles and backbiting.

Following the recess in Friday's proceedings, the judge declined to cite Margraves for contempt of court.

Margraves attorney, Mick Grewal told reporters, "He's not here seeking any fame".

Therapists say this outburst also doesn't mean Mr. Hargraves or his daughters will find their pain suddenly dissipate. "The reason was Larry Nassar".

"I delivered unintentionally my three daughters to a demon who had his own twisted and sick agenda for his own demented desires". "I think it's kind of insane, but hopefully they'll reach out".

You can watch the full video of the incident below. Adds background about other cases and prison sentences. Nassar faces a minimum of 25 to 40 years in prison in this case.
