Sandra Grazzini-Rucki will be re-sentenced tomorrow after the Minnesota Court of Appeals ruled Grazzini-Rucki could execute the remainder of her criminal sentence.
She later appealed her criminal conviction to the Minnesota Supreme Court, but the court rejected her petition.
Grazzini-Rucki will appear in court tomorrow at 9:00 AM at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota.
In July 2016, Grazzini-Rucki was found guilty on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.
The girls’ father, David Rucki, was awarded full custody of all five of his children in November 2013, while two of his daughters remained missing.
On November 18, 2015, the girls were found living on a ranch in northern Minnesota by law enforcement, headed by the Lakeville Police Department.
The Rucki sisters were missing for a total of 944 days and were reunited with their father days after they were found. They continue to live with their father and other siblings at the family’s home in Lakeville.
Since being convicted in July 2016 on six felony counts of deprivation of parental rights, Grazzini-Rucki, and her supporters have continued their behavior of making false allegations against David Rucki, his family, the media, law enforcement, and the judiciary.
Her disdain for law enforcement and the court system has become more flagrant, her rhetoric more incendiary, and her behavior increasingly dangerous.
Grazzini-Rucki is currently on probation for her role in the disappearance of her children, which she has repeatedly violated. Last March, Grazzini-Rucki announced that she and others would be targeting the family members of judges, attorneys, and county staff, including their children.
‘Homeless’ Sandra Grazzini-Rucki using an alias and living in waterfront estate community in Florida
In January, Missing in Minnesota published information based on public records which showed that a person named “Jaclyn Auld” with the same birthday as Grazzini-Rucki was residing with Jack Auld in Clearwater, Florida.
Grazzini-Rucki’s address was also recently updated in the public court file to Auld’s Florida home after court documents sent to Grazzini-Rucki’s previous mailing address were returned to the court by the United States Postal Service (USPS) with Grazzini-Rucki’s new Florida address.
Grazzini-Rucki had been using the residential address of her family court attorney Michelle MacDonald as her mailing address. Based on records with the USPS, the mail forwarding service expired on December 14, 2017.
Auld was with Grazzini-Rucki at the Star Island Resort and Club in Kissimmee, Florida on October 18, 2015, when she was located by the United States Marshals Service a month before Samantha and Gianna Rucki were found.
Auld had reportedly cooperated with law enforcement and helped lead them to Grazzini-Rucki, despite describing Grazzini-Rucki as his “best friend” and “soul mate.“
Grazzini-Rucki currently resides at waterfront property described as “resort style living”
Grazzini-Rucki is living at a property described as “resort style living” with “spectacular, expansive water views.” The waterfront property features a spa, pool, sauna, a tiki bar, and marina with private boat slips.
Michelle MacDonald claimed in an affidavit filed with the Minnesota Supreme Court last September that Grazzini-Rucki was “homeless.” MacDonald’s law license is currently suspended in part for her misrepresenting facts while serving as Grazzini-Rucki’s attorney.
Supporters of Grazzini-Rucki have gone so far as to claim that Grazzini-Rucki “relies on couch surfing” and eats “cold cans of Spaghetti-O’s in order to survive.”
Grazzini-Rucki’s luxury Cadillac Escalade was also found parked at waterfront estate in Florida where she has been living.
Public records show the ownership of Grazzini-Rucki’s luxury Cadillac Escalade has been transferred to Jack Auld.
Grazzini-Rucki and her supporters have repeatedly claimed that she is “homeless” and has no financial resources. But it is unusual for homeless people and others with limited financial resources to give away luxury vehicles.
The use of public documents to locate Grazzini-Rucki was conducted by Missing in Minnesota in the last few months to refute the false claim that Grazzini-Rucki is homeless.
Missing in Minnesota has not attempted to contact Grazzini-Rucki, nor will an attempt be made. Although Grazzini-Rucki’s address is now available in the public court file, Missing in Minnesota will not publish her address.
O Canada: Grazzini-Rucki stashed money in Canadian trust company
Missing in Minnesota uncovered in February that Grazzini-Rucki had money deposited in a Canadian financial services corporation as recently as December 2017, based on information mistakenly included in a post on Dede Evavold’s blog.
Evavold’s blog published another post with unfounded and false allegations about David Rucki and his family.
Included in the post was a picture of financials documents which have never been included in court records involving Grazzini-Rucki and which showed she had an account at AST Trust Company (Canada).
The picture posted on Evavold’s blog showed Grazzini-Rucki’s account with AST Trust Company (Canada) was opened on September 22, 2017, had shares withdrawn on October 2, 2017, and had a zero balance as of December 17, 2017. The document pictured on Evavold’s blog also contained instructing for the account holder to register with a Canadian website “for an Investor Central account” to view information about the plan with AST Trust Company (Canada).
AST Financial has a separate website for accounts based in the United States.
There is no record of Grazzini-Rucki ever having a trust account with AST Financial in the United States, nor with any financial institutions in Canada.
