The leader of the Children of the Underground, Faye Yager was the most notorious protective parent movement member to go on trial in the ’90s in Cobb County, Georgia. Tragically, the District Attorney Rose Wing failed to get a criminal prosecution. Over twenty years later in Hastings, Minnesota protective parent movement member Dede Evavold is being prosecuted on six felony counts of deprivation of child custody in the Sandra Grazzini Rucki case. Instead of getting the assistance of protective parent attorneys like Faye Yager did, Evavold is representing herself. She is not an attorney.

It is being reported that on Day 4 of the Trial, Evavold provided no opening statement, no witnesses, no cross examination and no objections. Evavold refuses to do anything. Evavold previously rejected a plea deal.

This makes no sense whatsoever and it sounds like Dede Evavold is daring the judge and the jury to send her to prison. Inasmuch as the protective parent network of lawyers and supporters usually steps up to defend their own, even attorney Michelle MacDonald who is seen in this video with Sandra Rucki and Michelle MacDonald is a no show.

This video was shot in 2013 by these Minnesota Protective Parent Movement / Family Court Critic Supporters. Ironically, three years later Sandra Rucki is in jail, Dede Rutherford on trial and Michelle MacDonald is running for judge. This supports our conclusion that the motive for this crime in these cases is “anger and revenge” and not for “love and protection of the child.”

    Un believably bizarre

    That video–with the only point seemingly being self-congratulatory of what a great job they are all doing–in the light of all that has happened–is really kinda creepy.

    Much, much easier for me to understand a parent who acts on feelings of rejection, despair, anger or whatever during or after a divorce than it is to accept the cheerleaders who follow along giving support and imagining themselves to be leaders in some sort of cause.

      Good news. I still believe the sentencing is far to light, given Sandra Rukki sentence. Remember folks, these kids were used as a pawn in a malicious divorce/ custody battle, which will affect them for life. Bottom line is these folks KNEW the whereabouts of these girls, but knowingly lied to law enforcement, held these girls prisioners, and heaven knows what else the endured. All the while they went on with life as normal. Unbelievably bizarre and deplorable.

        I agree with you Pam. The penalties for this crime should be a minimum of 5 years in prison for kidnapping a child. The Domestic Violence Community has always lobbied against any increase in these criminal penalties or even adding to the law that one must notify the local District Attorney. The Necessity or Afirmative Defense should not apply to a long-term kidnapping. The Dahlens are really guilty of a stranger abduction. Even though they testified against Sandra Rucki and Dede Evavold, there behavior is even more deplorable.

    This woman is the worst kind of criminal, the verdict is correct, a long harsh sentence is required. She’s scum, and so is Michelle McDonald. Gutless scumbag abductor, liar.
