Dede Evavold walked out of the Dakota County Jail this evening after Judge Kathleen Gearin permitted Evavold to be released from jail to remove the remaining online material about David Rucki, his children, and other members of the Rucki family published by Evavold which violates an Harassment Restraining Order.
Evavold has been in jail since Sunday after being arrested on an outstanding warrant.
Judge Gearin gave Evavold until Monday, March 26, 2018, at 4:30 PM to remove the remaining content or she is ordered to report to jail in Dakota County by 9 AM on March 27.
During today’s court hearing Lisa Elliott, the attorney for the Rucki family, agreed with comments made by Dede Evavold’s husband Darin that most of the content had been removed, but a small amount remains posted.
Darin Evavold brought Dede’s laptop computer to today’s court hearing, as he did for yesterday’s court hearing for his wife.
At the court hearing, Darin worked with Allison Mann, a paralegal from Elliott Law Offices to remove the additional content.
“We just want Ms. Evavold to stop harassing the [Rucki family],” said Elliott during today’s hearing.
Dede Evavold was present in the courtroom and she did not object while Darin worked with Mann to identify content that needed to be removed.
All parties agreed that Darin and Dede Evavold would stay in communication with Elliott’s office over the coming days to ensure Dede is in full compliance with the court’s order before Monday’s deadline.
Over the last two days, Darin Evavold has appeared visibly frustrated in court as he worked to remove the vast amount of online content published by his wife which landed her in jail.
This is why Elliott and Mann assisted Darin Evavold in removing the content, explained Mann.
“I have been monitoring the removal of content from Ms. Evavold’s blog and other social media accounts over the last two weeks,” said Allison Mann.
“At the start of today’s hearing, some of the content remained available online,” said Mann, who added, “Darin Evavold came to court today with his wife’s laptop so that he could delete anything that was left.”
Mann concluded, “our main goal has been and continues to be to stop the harassment of the Rucki family.”
Evavold was convicted in September 2016 of six felonies for her role in the disappearance of Samantha Rucki and her sister Gianna, who were abducted near their home on Lakeville by their mother Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, during a custody and divorce proceeding.
Since her release from jail in January 2017, Evavold has repeatedly ignored the conditions of her probation and court orders by making repeated references to the Rucki family in her use of social media.
Dede Evavold declined to answer questions as she left the Dakota County Jail. But as she walked to her vehicle, both Dede and Darin Evavold threatened legal action because I asked Dede questions as she walked out of the Dakota County Jail.
Dede Evavold is scheduled to report to jail on April 19, 2018, to serve 15 days in jail related to her felony convictions. Continue reading
