Funds Raised For Dad Who Lunged At Larry Nassar Will Go To Charity

Margraves' three daughters are among the many women and girls who have said they were abused by Nassar. Nassar was sentenced January 24 to 40 to 175 years in prison after being found guilty of abusing young female athletes over a span of two decades. She mocked a letter he sent her, throwing it away in front of him.

Until he plead guilty, Nassar's defense was that his actions were part of necessary medical treatment. Just shortly after the judge said no, that is when he tried to harm Nassar.

Margraves asked the judge if he could have "five minutes in a locked room with this demon", referring to Nassar.

He later apologized to the judge for his actions who released him - but he could still face charges from the prosecutor.

Nassar worked at Michigan State University and was team doctor for female Olympic gymnasts.

Trump Targets Iran At Prayer Breakfast, Voices Solidarity With The Persecuted
The Obamacare demand had been that they either would support Barack Obama's abortion agenda or close their doors. Millions and millions of people lifted Sophia up in their prayers. "Thank you, Sophia", Trump said .

Nassar, as of Friday morning, is being housed at Milan Federal Correctional Institution in Milan, Mich., according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website. "I was embarrassed", he said.

Dozens of the victims, including global stars such as Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles have accused officials at the USOC, USAG and Michigan State University - where Nassar also worked - of failing to investigate complaints stretching back decades. International Olympic Committee chief Thomas Bach said the organization was "deeply shocked and saddened" by the crimes and that it would defer to an independent investigation determining if Nassar's abuse ever occurred at the Olympics. "This is so much more than a gymnastics problem". That money will be given to charities that help survivors of sexual abuse.

Sarah Dvojack was hooked on gymnastics as a year-old girl watching the 1996 Summer Olympics, and she's been in love ever since. It's an integral product of the immoral dog-eat-dog capitalist system, which breeds competition and abuse in the race for profits.

"[The donation] allows us to continue to do the great work that we do here and provide essential services to children who are survivors of very unfortunate circumstances", said Alex Brace, executive director of Small Talk Children's Assessment Center.

The culture of "medals" and "money" can only be gotten rid of by fundamentally changing society from top to bottom - by the working class taking political power and carrying through a socialist revolution.
