Child Predator Attacked In Prison

Child Predator Attacked In Prison

( – Former USA Gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar faced his accusers at the beginning of 2018. Randall Margraves was one of the people who were in the courtroom during the victim impact statements. Nassar sexually assaulted his three daughters while they were involved in gymnastics. After two of his daughters bravely faced the man who assaulted them, Margraves stood up to speak.

The father begged Judge Janice Cunningham to give him five minutes alone with Nassar. When the judge refused, the distraught father leaped forward and tried to attack the sexual predator who had hurt his kids. Fortunately for Nassar, the police were there to prevent him from being injured. However, nobody was there to protect the convict in prison when he and a fellow inmate were in an altercation.

Prison Altercation

On July 9, Nassar, 59, was reportedly in an altercation with another inmate at the United States Penitentiary Coleman II about an hour northeast of Tampa, Florida. The inmate stabbed Nassar 10 times in his neck, chest, and back.

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, they couldn’t identify those involved in the incident but say it occurred at about 2:35 p.m. local time. An unidentified inmate suffered an assault, and the “staff immediately initiated life-saving measures.” Emergency personnel responded to the scene and transported Nassar to the hospital, where he remained in stable condition the following day.

Nobody else suffered any injuries during the altercation.

Victim Speaks Out

Rachael Denhollander, the first victim to come forward and accuse Nassar of sexual abuse, spoke out about the stabbing. In a series of tweets, she said that she was holding both justice and forgiveness in her hands after learning the news. She said she meant the words she spoke to the former doctor long ago when she told him he was “a man ruled by selfish and perverted desires.” She told him that she prays that he will “experience the soul crushing weight of guilt” for the crimes he committed.

Sarah Klein, another of Nassar’s victims, released a statement saying the assault didn’t bring her any peace. She explained that the incident forced her to “vividly relive [her] abuse and trauma” at her abuser’s hands and the “institutions, including law enforcement, that protected him and allowed him to prey on children.” Klein said she doesn’t support violence against Nassar and believes “death would be an easy out” for him. She pleaded with authorities to ensure he could not escape justice or the consequences of his crimes.

Nassar is serving 40 to 175 years in prison. He was accused of assaulting hundreds of girls.
