Confusion Continues in Rucki Case

The confusion surrounding the Rucki case continues.

Though she thought she was supposed to serve the next portion of her sentence, Dede Evavold learned two days before that was scheduled that this was not the case, but that her prison sentence is over but not her probation.

The confusion comes from the fact that everyone recommended that Evavold serve part of her sentence 15 day at a time in chunks over a six-year period, but Judge Asphaug did not rule that way.
Furthermore, Evavold was not given a copy of Asphaug’s court order until days before she was to serve her sentence on April 19, 2018: the date chosen because this was the day the girls ran.

So, almost everyone, and specifically Evavold, assumed she was to serve the next portion of her sentence on April 19, only to learn shortly before she does not have any more prison time to serve.
Here’s part of the argument made by Dakota County Prosecutor Kathleen Keena on Evavold’s sentencing held on November 10, 2016: “In number two, the probationary department -- Probation Department is recommending that she serve 15 days in jail commencing on April 19th, 2018, and that she serve 15 days in jail every year that she's on probation. The State would request that that be modified so that she is serving 15 -- or actually, to be equivalent to what Ms. Grazzini-Rucki received, it would be 12 days, and that 15 that actually be commenced on November 18th, 2017, which is 16 the anniversary date of the girls' recovery. That she also be required to complete 10 days of 18 STS each year for each year that she's on probation and that 19 that be completed by November 17th of each year.”

This report did indeed recommend that Evavold serve her sentence chunks at a time starting on April 

19, 2018.

Evavold has assumed this was the order since; one reason she assumed this is because this was the sentence given to Sandra Grazzini-Rucki.

Another reason is because she was not given a court order until shortly before she was to serve.
When she inquired about the next portion of her prison sentence days before April 19, she was told she was not ordered to serve and sent this court order.

But in Asphaug’s court order dated December 10, 2016, Asphaug noted: “Commit to Commissioner of Corrections at the MN Correctional Facility- Shakopee for 12 Months and 1 Day. Sentenced is stayed for 4 years.

“This sentence consists of a minimum term of imprisonment equal to two-thirds of the total executed sentence.”

Though, confusing, Asphaug had effectively sentenced Evavold to four months in prison- which she’d already served- and stayed- or put off the rest- while keeping Evavold on probation for four years.

The confusion even caught Michael Brodkorb who still found a way to blame Evavold, “Dede Evavold was not required to report to jail today, despite Evavold herself publishing documents which claimed she was scheduled to serve 15 days in jail starting on April 19, 2018, and continuing each April 19 until 2023.

“Evavold created the confusion last year when she published documents which detailed her scheduled for reporting to jail for the next six years related to her felony convictions for her role in the disappearance of Samantha Rucki and her sister Gianna, who were abducted near their home on Lakeville by their mother Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, during a custody and divorce proceeding.

“After reviewing court documents which conflicted with Evavold’s claims, court staff at the Dakota County Judicial Center was able to verify that the information posted by Evavold was incorrect and she was not required to report to jail today.”

The maximum sentence for Evavold’s crime is one year and one day; though it’s presumed probation for someone like her with no criminal record, she was still sentenced to time in jail and four years of probation, a reduction from the recommendations of the prosecutor and the probation department, which wanted her to serve the maximum and in chunks at a time.

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki initially got the maximum and was supposed to serve it chunks at a time even though she too had no prior criminal record until that was overturned by an appeal’s court.

Both Evavold and Grazzini-Rucki were convicted in the fall 2016 of deprivation of parental rights for hiding two of Grazzini-Rucki's daughters from her abusive ex-husband- her ex-husband David Rucki has been involved in a bar fighta road rage incidentincidents of stalkingonce stuck a gun to his son Nico’s head, and chased after his daughter Samantha on her thirteenth birthday.

(A full dossier of David Rucki’s violence can be found here).

Asphaug- who presided over both trial- disallowed almost all the evidence of violence into their trials. 

Update: I've confirmed with a source that Sandra Grazzini-Rucki is currently in Dakota County, Minnesota, having made the transport from Florida, but that there was an accident along the way and she sustained injuries. 

"Driver for whatever reason slammed on the brakes (and) put the vehicle in park with it going about 40 miles an hour. (S)everal of the prisoners were hurt and sent to the hospital," the source noted, "Sam (Grazzini-Rucki) was one of them."

2013 Minneapolis Fox Story on the Rucki Case

In this story a so-called expert on parental alienation named Laura Thomas who said one of the dumbest things I've ever had to hear, ""Mom presents the child with a toy right before the father is schedule to come (for parenting time)” as an example of parental alienation."

I recently referenced her comment in an article in AMI Magazine on Julie Goffstein's situation. That reference is below. 

Also of note is that even though Sami and Gianna were on the run when this story was featured they were given less than a minute of screen time while parental alienation got approximately five.

Grazzini-Rucki and Evavold Illegally Made To Serve Jail Time

                                                          (So-called Judge Karen Asphaug)

In a new stunning revelation, both Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and Dede Evavold have been illegally held the entire time of their sentences in jails rather than prisons.

While to the layman a jail and a prison means the same thing, there is actually a huge difference in the incarceration world.

This has been done through fraud and heavy handed rulings by Karen Asphaug, the so-called judge in the criminal case. 

At one point, Asphaug, even stated: “I will not waste a bed in Shakopee (the only women’s prison in Minnesota) on you,” to Grazzini-Rucki.

This was confirmed by Sarah Fitzgerald, a spokesperson for the Minnesota Department of Corrections, which runs the prison system.

"Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was never incarcerated with the Minnesota Department of Corrections. We have one female prison, in Shakopee Minnesota, and she was not committed there. You may need to check with the county jails." Fitzgerald stated in an email.

Here is part of an explanation for the differences between a prison and a jail from the

At the most basic level, the fundamental difference between jail and prison is the length of stay for inmates. Think short-term and long-term. Jails are usually run by local law enforcement and/or local government agencies, and are designed to hold inmates awaiting trial or serving a short sentence. Often “short” is designated as a misdemeanor conviction versus a felony, so in some instances where misdemeanor sentences are run consecutively, one may spend more than a year in jail. Jails often operate work release programs and boot camps, and some offer educational, substance abuse, and vocational programs. While many of these programs are designed to help the inmates change their lives and improve themselves so they stand a better chance of avoiding a return visit, they also have the added benefit of keeping the inmates occupied and less likely to cause problems for jailers.

Prisons, on the other hand, are typically operated by either a state government or the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). These are designed to hold individuals convicted of more serious crimes, typically any felony. Prisons offer different programs to inmates depending on the inmate's level of custody (i.e., minimum, medium, or maximum security, solitary confinement, etc.). Minimum and medium security programs include halfway houses, work release programs, and community restitution centers. Typically those who are eligible for such programs are nearing the end of their prison terms. 

Because prisons are designed for long-term incarceration, they are better developed for the living needs of their populations. Jails, on the other hand, tend to have more transient populations and less well-developed facilities. As a result, many inmates prefer their stays in prison given the more regular life, the greater availability of programs, and better facilities. Indeed, many repeat offenders will ask for prison time rather than time in jail followed by probation if given the option. Some inmates complain that jail, given its constant flow of people that can often interfere with an inmate's ability to sleep, eat on a regular schedule, or participate in exercise. Some jails also suffer from budget shortages that lead to lower quality or inadequate food. these issues often lead to claims of violations of the inmate's right against cruel and unusual punishment. However, such claims are rarely, if ever, successful.

Grazzini-Rucki and Evavold both spent time in both Ramsey and Dakota County Jail. 

Indeed, given that both Grazzini-Rucki and Evavold were convicted of low level felonies there was no reason for either to spend their entire sentences in jails.

Once sentenced, they were supposed to be sent to a prison.

Furthermore, Grazzini-Rucki was forced to spend approximately five months in jail awaiting her trial based on a fraud, and likely, those who perpetrated it committed for more serious crimes with impunity than what she has been convicted of.

Asphaug justified keeping her in jail because she called her a fugitive who had eluded the US Marshals for weeks, but she wasn’t a fugitive and Asphaug knew it, or should have known it.

The warrant for her arrest was sealed, so she couldn’t be a fugitive. That fact was manipulated in order to draw in the SWAT team from the US Marshals but even after the US Marshals realized they’d been had they continued to attack Grazzini-Rucki.

In support of a higher bail, members of the US Marshals actually testified to Asphaug that they couldn’t find Grazzini-Rucki for weeks, even though she was a flight attendant during that period and they could have gotten her schedule.

Yet, Asphaug gave her a $500,000 cash bond and sent her to jail not prison to await trial.
She also forced her to appear handcuffed and shackled for all appearances.

She has continued to make her serve jail time and the same for Evavold, even though Evavold was never even considered a fugitive.

Asphaug, three member of the Minnesota courts public affairs team, and the Department of Corrections, which runs the prisons, all did not respond to an email for an explanation of why both have remained in jails their entire stays.

Besides forcing Grazzini-Rucki to serve her time in jail not prison, Asphaug has also sentenced her to the maximum even though sentencing guidelines suggest that the maximum is only to be applied in cases with previous convictions, Grazzini-Rucki had nothing more than a parking ticket before this

Furthermore, Grazzini-Rucki was only convicted after Asphaug would not allow almost all evidence of abuse into the trial; this included all of the Child Protective Services reports, numerous criminal convictions of David Rucki, and any mention that anyone- there were ten people total including Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and her five children- had a restraining order against David Rucki.

Grazzini-Rucki was convicted in the fall 2016 of deprivation of parental rights for hiding two of her daughters from her abusive ex-husband- her ex-husband David Rucki has been involved in a bar fight, a road rage incident, incidents of stalking, once stuck a gun to his son Nico’s head, and chased after his daughter Samantha on her thirteenth birthday.

TS Radio:TnT Tanya TalkS with Mike Oxely

Mike is facing 800 years- based on the charges levied against him by the State of Oklahoma.
Mike refused to lie to satisfy the "needs" of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Medicaid Department after they raided what they believed to be a pill mill and worked hard to save face.
LISTEN IN and hear Mike's story for the first time. A side that mainstream is not covering. The political implications of the raid; how a man working security suddenly finds himself in the midst of the unthinkable and being touted as the alleged "pill mill" doctor's "most trusted friend" and "muscle" when according to Mike- those statements couldn't be farther from the truth.
Mike stands his ground and refuses to make a plea for something that didn't exist as far as he knows- and had nothing to do with.

Medical Exam Points to Minnesota Jail Corruption

A recent medical exam revealed that Sandra Grazzini-Rucki has several broken bones and torn ligaments, and much of the damage was either ignored or caused by the Minnesota jail system the last time she was incarcerated.

As I previously noted, Grazzini-Rucki is currently being housed in Pinellas County Jail in Florida awaiting extradition back to Minnesota to finish a convoluted sentence imposed inexplicably by Dakota County Minnesota Judge Karen Asphaug.

She recently had a medical check to prepare her for transport for her extradition and that medical check determined that she had: multiple broken toes on one foot, and one on the other, a broken nose, iron deficiency, lower back problems, and a torn rotator cuff.

Much of this damage was caused on her last transport from Florida to Minnesota and the broken nose was caused when a fellow inmate attacked her while in prison in Minnesota.

The reason the transport was so brutal was because Dakota County lied to the US Marshals and made her appear to be a violent and assaultive felon when she was being charged with a low level felony.
In September 2015, she was indicted under seal for parental deprivation.
Because it was under seal she- nor anyone outside a small circle- was supposed to know about the indictment.

Stahl has also received another sealed warrant, this one for the home of the Dahlen’s on the day the two Rucki girls were found.

He’s never explained why someone in law enforcement was willing to commit multiple crimes themselves to give him information illegally, but there’s no doubt he is pro-police in this case, never questioning anything they’ve done throughout.

While she was indicted for parental deprivation, Dakota County reached out to the US Marshals and told them she was a fugitive, an assaultive felon who was charged with gun running, kidnapping and child trafficking.

As a result, in October 2015, she was visited after midnight by members of the US Marshals Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) at a timeshare she was staying following a flight as a flight attendant.

Because of the seriousness of the charges, she was housed in maximum security where her cell mate was accused murderer Elizabeth Rios in Florida while awaiting extradition.

Her bus made almost ten stops and on one stop she was chained to the wall in a cell for several days.
She was beaten and sexual assaulted on the transport and when she arrived back in Minnesota claimed a glitch was responsible for them claiming she was charged with child trafficking, kidnapping and gun running and reduced the charges to parental deprivation.

Grazzini-Rucki spent time in Ramsey and Dakota County Jail.

Asphaug gave her $500,000, claiming she was a flight risk, even though her warrant was clearly marked sealed.

In prison she received no care for any of her injuries and the prison even sent in a fellow prisoner to rough her up.

One of the nights she was being housed, Grazzini-Rucki said she received a new cell mate. Shortly after dinner, she said she became groggy and passed out.

The next thing she remembered she woke up in a pool of blood in her cell.

While the hospital staff stopped the bleeding, her nose was never reset and when she arrived back in her cell the cell mate was gone.

Jail officials never conducted an investigation into what happened and told her she must have fallen out of her bunk.

Sarah Fitzgerald, public affairs officer for the Minnesota Department of Corrections, said she was not housed in the prison system for her entire stay. 

That means Grazzini-Rucki was housed in the county jail system the entire time she was incarcerated; the jail system is far more restrictive and given that her crime was a low level felony there was no apparent reason for her to stay in the jail system. 

Grazzini-Rucki faces another transport from Florida to Minnesota shortly.

Grazzini-Rucki was convicted in the fall 2016 of deprivation of parental rights for hiding two of her daughters from her abusive ex-husband- her ex-husband David Rucki has been involved in a bar fight, a road rage incident, incidents of stalking, once stuck a gun to his son Nico’s head, and chased after his daughter Samantha on her thirteenth birthday.

Grazzini-Rucki Case Spins Out of Control


The case against Sandra Grazzini-Rucki has turned to chaos and most of the blame can be laid at the feet of Dakota County Judge Karen Asphaug.
Grazzini-Rucki was convicted in the fall 2016 of deprivation of parental rights for hiding two of her daughters from her abusive ex-husband- her ex-husband David Rucki has been involved in a bar fight, a road rage incident, incidents of stalking, once stuck a gun to his son Nico’s head, and chased after his daughter Samantha on her thirteenth birthday.
The maximum sentence for the crime Grazzini-Rucki was convicted of was one year and one day and probation was assumed for anyone with no prior criminal record.
Though probation was assumed since Grazzini-Rucki had no prior criminal record, not only did Asphaug sentence Grazzini-Rucki to the maximum but made her serve it fifteen days at a time over a period of six years.
Grazzini-Rucki was picked up for this crime in October 2015 and served approximately five months in prison awaiting trial largely because Asphaug set her bail then at $500,000, referring to her as a flight risk. 
She also served a month immediately after being sentenced and another three weeks for a probation violation.
As such, by the end of 2016, she had less than two months to serve.
Grazzini-Rucki asked the “execute the sentence”; by execute, this means to finish the remaining all at once.
The prosecutor and even the probation officer both recommended this course of action but Asphaug denied it and forced Grazzini-Rucki to wait until November 19, 2017 to serve the next portion of her sentence.'

                                                          (Judge Karen Asphaug)
But shortly before Grazzini-Rucki was to serve her sentence, the Minnesota Appeals Court overturned the sentence as too harsh and sent the matter back to Asphaug for her to resentence Grazzini-Rucki and have her complete the sentence.
On December 8, 2017, Asphaug announced on the docket that she was scheduling a hearing. Then, on December 14, 2018, Asphaug, with no explanation, canceled the hearing.
It’s not clear why the second hearing was a “review hearing” since what needed to occur was for a resentencing.
But by this point, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki had been rendered homeless and living in Florida.
She was homeless because in her divorce her ex-husband was awarded everything, along with sole custody of the children, and child support and alimony.
Since she was now a convicted felon, she could never find a job which would be able to manage paying for all this.
She was living in Florida because Asphaug, knowing that Grazzini-Rucki was homeless, let her leave prison without providing a home address or phone number.
She’s also not been required to check with either the court or her probation officer as Grazzini-Rucki maintained no contact with either with no sanction since she left the state in late 2016.
Grazzini-Rucki’s circumstances are so dire she borrows and shares phones.
With Grazzini-Rucki on the street, it’s not clear how she was served.
None of her attorneys of record were contacted.
Grazzini-Rucki failed to appear for her March 26 court date and a nationwide body only (the most extreme) warrant was immediately issued.
Now, with less than a month and a half to serve, Dakota County is insisting on extraditing Grazzini-Rucki, a process would could take up to a week and a half on its own.
Because missing a court date immediately put Grazzini-Rucki into a fugitive category she is being housed in maximum security in a county jail, not a prison, which she said, “are used to break people.”
Had she been allowed to execute the sentence, Grazzini-Rucki would have completed everything in January 2017.
Sandra Grazzini-Rucki is currently being housed in Pinellas (Fl) County Jail and has been since she voluntarily turned herself in on March 27.
