A Teachable Moment for the Protective Parent Movement

In the aftermath of the Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and accomplice Dede Evavold’s criminal trials — one has to wonder how the Family Court Critic/Protective Parent Movement would respond to the verdicts in these cases. With both Sandra Rucki and Dede Evavold convicted of four and six felonies each, both are currently in jail. Meanwhile, Doug and Gina Dahlen have upcoming criminal trials.

Today, in a Facebook and other social media posting these advocates or protesters are claiming: “a rigged trial”; paternal abuse evidence was kept from the jury and trial-by-ambush. There’s actually a Twitter account that is posting proclaimed evidence. If Evavold was so confident that she had the evidence of her innocence, then why didn’t she hire an attorney to represent her?

But child kidnapping is kidnapping and this Minnesota District Attorney has stepped forward to prosecute the kidnapper and all accomplices for their crime. In our nation’s history, there has never been a District Attorney that has rightfully prosecuted all directly involved parties for this crime. Even though this has not happened before, every child protectionists should realize that the jury has spoken, the judge has spoken and now is the time for everyone to more forward “in the best interests of the children”.

So as this case begins to de-escalate it’s hopeful that groups that have supported Sandra Rucki and Dede Evavold in the past, will show some compassion in protecting the privacy of the Rucki Family Children. It’s time for everyone to more forward in this case!

  1. These kidnapping, whether done illegally, or “legally” using the courts to help, leave a huge hole in the lives of families, and in the hearts of the children themselves.

  2. Whether it’s a child or teenagers like SR and GR it still harms the relationship between the left behind parent and the children.

    Teachable moment? Ha! Sandra Grazzini Rucki is out enjoying herself right now wouldn’t surprise me if she left the state and is having drinks somewhere. We all know how much she loves the ocean. It’s not like Dakota County is keeping tabs on her.

    If Sandra Grazzini Rucki is not going to follow conditions of parole her ass should be thrown in jail. How many times can one person break the law and get away with it? Maybe the Underground is hiding Sandra somewhere??

    • Margo/Mom says:

      I doubt that the local underground has much interest in hiding S GR anymore. Dede Evavold is headed to jail (sentencing next month) and the Dahlens are headed to trial for their roles in what has already happened. Her criminal attorney quit and her civil attorney (handled the divorce) is not only still a person of interest in the custodial interference. And she has some other issues to deal with as well–a complaint for her conduct in another case and an investigation into some campaign irregularities (she is running for State Supreme Court).

      My guess is that as Sandra has both a parole officer and an attitude and between the two will eventually buy herself ongoing legal difficulties that land her back in jail.

    Hopefully justice will come sooner than later!
