Dede Evavold will be arraigned next week on three criminal counts of violating an Harassment Restraining Order granted by a court in Dakota County to protect David Rucki and his family from Evavold’s continued harassment.
Evavold is scheduled to appear at the Dakota County Western Service Center in Apple Valley on October 17, 2017, at 9:00 AM.
She has been charged with three misdemeanors and if convicted, Evavold could be sentenced up to 90 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine on each charge.
Evavold was sentenced on November 10, 2016 after being found guilty of six felony charges related to her involvement in the disappearance of Samantha and Gianna Rucki, who were abducted by their mother near their home in Lakeville, Minnesota on April 19, 2013, during a custody and divorce dispute involving their parents – Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and David Rucki.
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.
