A father of three of Larry Nassar's victims tried to attack the disgraced ex-Olympic doctor during a sentencing hearing Friday.

Margraves' daughters, Lauren and Madison Rae, had just finished speaking when he addressed the judge.

Margraves then asked the judge if she would give him "five minutes in a locked room with this demon". When the judge declined, he asked for one minute alone in the room. People in the gallery were crying as police took Margrave into custody. "Like I want to crawl out of my body and live in someone else's".

Two of his daughters gave statements to the court and they said a third sister had also been molested by Nassar.

Nassar was last week sentenced to up to 170 years in prison for 10 counts of sexual assault against girls and young women, following testimony from almost 160 of his victims.

Later in the day, Cunningham said there was "no way" she would hold Margraves in contempt of court.

Seconds later, three bailiffs had Margraves on the ground.

When she turned down that request as well, Margraves said, "Well, I'm going to have to." before charging toward Nassar and being restrained by several court officers.

There was laughter in the courtroom after his first request, but it was quickly replaced by gasps and tears after he lunged at Nassar.

"If it is hard and difficult for me to hear what his daughters have to say, I can't imagine what it is like for a parent", she said. "And I know there are still some who ask are you broken because you got caught". Last month, more than 150 victims testified against Larry in a separate trial, after which he was sentenced to a minimum of 40 years and maximum of 175 years in prison.

Nassar faces another long prison sentence on top of the two he has already received.

According to the New York Times' Zach Schoburn and Christine Hauser, 65 women have been scheduled to make victim impact statements at some point throughout the hearing.
