Sandra Grazzini-Rucki moves back to her home in Florida

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki is no longer in Minnesota and has moved back to her home in Florida, according to public records.

Last month, Grazzini-Rucki requested her probation be transferred from Minnesota to her home state of Flordia. The request was approved last week, and Grazzini-Rucki has since moved back to Florida.

Grazzini-Rucki was released from the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee on May 15, 2018, after serving a total of 240 days for her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

She remains on supervised probation until September 13, 2018, and was living at an address in Stearns County after being released from prison. The requested transfer proves again that Grazzini-Rucki has ties to Florida including a residence.

Homesick: Sandra Grazzini-Rucki requests transfer to Florida

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki has requested that her supervised probation is transferred from Minnesota to her home state of Flordia, according to public documents.

Grazzini-Rucki was released last week from the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee, after serving a total of 240 days for her 2016 conviction on six counts of deprivation of parental rights for her role in the disappearance of her daughters.

She remains on supervised probation until September 13, 2018, and is currently living at an address in Stearns County. The requested transfer proves again that Grazzini-Rucki has ties to Florida including a residence.

Though she operates on a belief that lack of ownership proves she is homeless; it is clear Grazzini-Rucki has resided in Florida since 2016.

Despite falsely telling law enforcement at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Clearwater, Florida that she was homeless when she was booked into jail on March 27, 2018, Grazzini-Rucki is now requesting that her probation is transferred back to Florida.

Grazzini-Rucki lives at a waterfront estate community in Florida

According to the owner of the condominium where she has been living, Grazzini-Rucki signed a lease in March 2016 to live at a waterfront estate community in Clearwater, Florida.

Grazzini-Rucki will have to provide an address in Florida to allow for the transfer of her probation from Minnesota.

In a jailhouse video from March 29, 2018, Grazzini-Rucki told her boyfriend Jack Auld that she plans on giving the Minnesota Department of Corrections an address where she won’t be living, and Auld agrees.

It is not known at this time what address she has provided to probation.

For nearly six years Grazzini-Rucki has falsely claimed she is homeless and destitute in an attempt to manipulate public opinion and the legal system.

In reality, Grazzini-Rucki had access to over $2 million from her family in the last eight years, and the total amount of her current net worth is unknown.

Grazzini-Rucki’s false claims of homelessness are part of a documented pattern of lies from Grazzini-Rucki, who admitted during her criminal trial that she had repeatedly been “dishonest” in previous court hearings.

UPDATE: Sandra Grazzini-Rucki back in jail in Minnesota

UPDATE (12:30 PM, Monday, April 23, 2018) – Sandra Grazzini-Rucki had a brief court appearance this morning at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota. Grazzini-Rucki is being held without bail pending her next court appearance, scheduled for Friday at 9 AM. Grazzini-Rucki has applied to be represented by a public defender, despite living in a waterfront estate community in Clearwater, Florida. Stay tuned for updates.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was booked into the Dakota County Jail at 5:48 AM this morning after being transported from the Pinellas County Jail in Clearwater, Florida.

Grazzini-Rucki had been in custody in Florida since March 27, 2018, after a warrant was issued for her arrest when she failed to appear at her re-sentencing hearing on March 26, 2018, related to her 2016 conviction 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.

Grazzini-Rucki is scheduled to have her first court appearance on Monday, at 10 AM at the Dakota County Judicial Center in Hastings, Minnesota.

In total, it took Grazzini-Rucki eight days to be transported with other inmates from Florida to Minnesota. The company that transported Grazzini-Rucki stopped in at least three different states – Georgia, Texas, and Illinois – to deliver other inmates to correctional facilities.

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. In March 2017, Grazzini-Rucki announced that she and others would be targeting the family members of judges, attorneys, and county staff, including their children.

‘Homeless’ and ‘penniless’ Sandra Grazzini-Rucki signed a lease to live at Florida condominium

Despite repeated claims that she is “homeless” and “penniless”, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki signed a lease in March 2016 to live at a waterfront estate community in Clearwater, Florida, according to the owner of the condominium where she has been living.

Staff at the office which manages of the waterfront estate community also confirmed yesterday that Grazzini-Rucki was living in a condominium on the property and was seen by staff within the last month.

Missing in Minnesota published information in January based on public records which showed that a person named “Jaclyn Auld” with the same birthday as Grazzini-Rucki was residing with John “Jack” Auld in Clearwater, Florida.

After a warrant was issued for her arrest on March 26, 2018, Grazzini-Rucki turned herself in at approximately 9:00 PM the following evening at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office which is located just seven miles away from her home in Clearwater, Florida.

According to public court documents and staff at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, Grazzini-Rucki falsely claimed she was homeless when being booked into custody.

Over the last few days, Missing in Minnesota worked to provide additional evidence to refute claims made by Grazzini-Rucki and her attorneys and supporters that Grazzini-Rucki is homeless. 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.”

In fact, yesterday morning while Missing in Minnesota was working to confirm additional details about Grazzini-Rucki’s lease for her condominium in Clearwater, Florida, a supporter of Grazzini-Rucki and self-described “investigative reporter” posted a blog story which falsely claimed she was “rendered homeless” and living “on the street” in Florida.

Michelle MacDonald claimed in an affidavit filed with the Minnesota Supreme Court last September that Grazzini-Rucki was “homeless.” MacDonald’s law license was suspended for 60 days in part for her misrepresenting facts while serving as Grazzini-Rucki’s family court attorney.

For nearly six years Grazzini-Rucki has falsely claimed she is homeless and destitute in an attempt to manipulate public opinion and the legal system.

In reality, Grazzini-Rucki had access to over $2 million from her family in the last eight years, and the total amount of her current net worth is unknown.

Grazzini-Rucki’s false claims of homelessness are part of a documented pattern of lies from Grazzini-Rucki, who admitted during her criminal trial that she had repeatedly been “dishonest” in previous court hearings.

But as Grazzini-Rucki sits in jail in Clearwater, Florida, awaiting transport back to Minnesota, further confirmation that she has not been “homeless” could have serious ramifications when Grazzini-Rucki eventually appears again in a courtroom in Dakota County. Continue reading

O Canada: ‘Homeless’ and ‘penniless’ Grazzini-Rucki stashed money in Canadian trust company

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, who claims she is “homeless” and “penniless”, had money deposited in a Canadian financial services corporation as recently as December 2017, according to information mistakenly included in a post on Dede Evavold’s blog.

The news of Grazzini-Rucki having financial assets in Canada comes weeks after the discovery that Grazzini-Rucki has been actually living in a waterfront estate community in Florida under an assumed name.

In reality, Grazzini-Rucki had access to over $2 million from her family in the last eight years and the total amount of her current net worth is unknown.

The use of foreign banks to hide assets shows the depth of Grazzini-Rucki’s efforts to mask her true lifestyle.

Grazzini-Rucki was convicted in July 2016 of six felonies for her role in in the disappearance of her daughters. Dede Evavold, a friend of Grazzini-Rucki, was found guilty in September 2016 on six felony counts of deprivation of parental rights related her involvement in disappearance the girls.

Grazzini-Rucki’s false claims of being “homeless” and “penniless” are part of a documented pattern of lies from Grazzini-Rucki, who admitted during her criminal trial that she had repeatedly been “dishonest” in previous court hearings.
