(11:45 AM, Monday, March 26, 2018)  A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki after she failed to appear at her re-sentencing hearing this morning related to her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

At approximately 9:30 AM – 30 minutes after the re-sentencing hearing was to start at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota – Assistant Dakota County Attorney Kathy Keena requested that a warrant be issued for Grazzini-Rucki’s arrest for failing to appear in court.

Judge Karen Asphaug granted Keena’s request, and an arrest warrant was later issued for Grazzini-Rucki. Judge Asphaug also said in court today that Grazzini-Rucki had not completed her required 12 days of Sentencing of Service, which she is required to complete every year she is on probation.

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.

After Grazzini-Rucki failed to report to jail last November, we published a detailed post explaining why Grazzini-Rucki not being in jail should scare you.
