MissinginMinnesota.com is reporting that Sandra Grazzini-Rucki had a brief court appearance this morning [April 23, 2018] at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota. Grazzini-Rucki is being held without bail pending her next court appearance, scheduled for Friday at 9 AM. Grazzini-Rucki has applied to be represented by a public defender, despite living in a waterfront estate community in Clearwater, Florida.
Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was booked into the Dakota County Jail at 5:48 AM this morning after being transported from the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater, Florida.
Grazzini-Rucki had been in custody in Florida since March 27, 2018, after a warrant was issued for her arrest when she failed to appear at her re-sentencing hearing on March 26, 2018, related to her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.
Underwatch’s Note: These protective parent moms like Sandra Grazzini just can’t follow court orders. It’s no wonder that the protective parent movement tries to discredit “parental alienation” and make statements that the custody evaluators and family court judges don’t understand domestic abuse. It sounds like the “real abusers” in these cases are the protective parent moms. They have no respect for the courts or America’s Criminal Justice System. As Sandra Grazzini sits in jail, her former spouse is raising her children. In this case, the “best interests of the child” standard seems very appropriate.
