What Protective Parents Should NOT Do!

A message to the Protective Parent / Family Court Critics Movement, this is the end result if you engage in civil disobedience and kidnap your teenage children. There are always legal alternatives in child custody cases. There is no such thing as a permanent custody order. What would have been so bad about Joint Custody and Coparenting?



On July 28, 2016 in Dakota County, Minnesota, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was taken into custody after the jury found her guilty of 6 Felony Counts of Deprivation of Child Custody. She was released on a $100,000 Bail.

    New ruling, on cameras and audio recording devices. They will be allowed except during victim testimony at the sentencing hearing. http://missinginminnesota.com/court-allows-audio-video-coverage-grazzini-ruckis-sentencing-hearing/

    Cameras/recording have been an issue in the past. Attorney Michelle McDonald was arrested during one of the divorce hearings for using a recording device in violation of law/court procedures. Made quite a scene apparently. During the recent trial someone (allegedly GR’s boyfriend) was photographing and posting pictures on the internet. Pics of specific women, unclear if they were spectators or jury members. The intent, however, appeared to be harassment.

    Michelle McDonald, BTW seems to be a real piece of work. Just for fun look up the you-tube of her DUI arrest. She refused a field sobriety test which resulted in an automatic finding of guilt. Upheld on appeal. Def not someone I would want defending me.

    Sandra’s divorce attorney (not the one who represented her in the current case), who is also running for a second time for a State Supreme Court judgeship, is also currently facing an extensive complaint from the Director of the Lawyers Responsibility Board.


    The complaint includes a good bit of McDonald’s courtroom and other behavior from the GR hearings, but also from another divorce case. Very difficult to tell how much is simple incompetence (missing filing deadlines, failure to inform required parties, other filing deficiencies) and how much is willful grandstanding for whatever she sees her cause to be. She has lost a number of appeals–inclusive of one alleging that a judge retaliated against her–her courtroom behavior (violating recording prohibitions, refusing to respond to judge’s questions, interruptions, repeatedly questioning whether a copy of a document provided to her could be proven to be substantially identical to the actual document entered in evidence) is at times completely bizarre. [She was similarly bizarre during a traffic stop in which she was suspected of DUI and refused field sobriety testing–also lost on appeal]

    If her behavior is deliberate as some sort of civil disobedience act, she also fails to understand anything about efficacy in that area either. It is completely astonishing that she continues to be able to attract clients.

    Sentencing: 34 days incarceration with six years probation–with an additional 15 days incarceration beginning on the anniversary of the abduction each year.
