Dede Evavold may face additional criminal charges for violating an Harassment Restraining Order granted by a court in Dakota County to protect David Rucki and his family from her continued harassment.
Evavold violated the Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) less than 36 hours after being warned by a judge at a court hearing in Dakota County that she could face additional criminal charges, including gross misdemeanor and felony charges if she continues to violate the HRO.
In July a judge in Dakota County found that “an immediate and present danger of harassment” by Evavold existed to warrant the granting of an Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) requested by David Rucki and his daughter, Samantha Rucki, against Evavold.
The HRO requested by David Rucki and Samantha Rucki also protects Gianna Rucki and two other minor Rucki children from being harassed by Evavold.
Since the HRO was granted, Evavold has repeatedly violated the conditions of the HRO with her continuous harassment and threatening behavior toward the Rucki family.
On September 12, 2017, Evavold was charged with three criminal counts of violating the HRO. Evavold is scheduled to be arraigned at the Dakota County Western Service Center in Apple Valley on October 17, 2017, at 9:00 AM.
