Dave Rucki shares victim impact statement in court
Sandra Grazzini-Rucki was sentenced to 250 days in jail and six years probation after a jury convicted her in July of six felony counts of deprivation of parental rights.A Lakeville mother who hid her two teen daughters for more than two and a half years during a custody battle was sentenced in Dakota County court today.
Grazzini-Rucki, who was given credit for the 133 days she has already spent in jail, will serve the rest of her jail sentence in 15-day increments for the next six years, reporting to jail on Nov. 18 – the day her two daughters were found by law enforcement – starting in 2017.
She was ordered to pay two $944 fines – the dollar amount is the number of days the two girls were missing.
Grazzini-Rucki will participate in the sentence-to-serve program for 12 days each year for the next six. If she fails to show up for any of the days, those days will be added to her jail time.
Grazzini-Rucki was smiling as she was arrested in court at the end of sentencing hearing and was ordered immediately to serve a 34-day jail sentence.
The children’s father David Rucki said he felt the jail time was appropriate.
“It’s not about retribution,” Rucki said. “It’s about being accountable … that’s all I’m looking for is accountability.”
“Crime victims have rights! Investigations into criminal activity should result in justice for the victims.” Lori Musolf.

“Sam’s a very conniving and manipulative person. My heart went out to her, because at first I did believe her.”

“Sam is vindictive, to me this whole plot was about revenge against David and about money.”
“She felt like he would kill her if he had the chance.”
“I don’t trust David and I do think the man is dangerous”
“Sam did this to herself and she deserves the consequences from it. Hopefully Sam isn’t having any communication with them” (referring to Sandra’s children)
“If she’s facing prison time she’s going to run.I can see her taking the girls and running again”
Excerpts from interview with Detective Dronen:
Detective Dronen: Let me ask you something along those lines when the girls first went missing on the 19th of April.
Lori: I think I’ve got the timelines figured out when we interviewed (referring to Fox9 interview of the girls). I believe I had gotten a call that night that they were gone and I believe that was a Friday night. Things have just been triggering memories for me when I read stuff like, you know I’ll read through these stories and everything else and I actually talked to Trish and I think I’ve got the timeline figured out. So they went missing Friday night they called me on Saturday the next day because we tried to set up the interview for Saturday but we could not find a photographer that would work the weekend. We didn’t interview them till Monday morning, my husband was home during that time too and we are trying to get everything figured out. So I figure it was between Saturday and Sunday that we talked on the phone and it was either Sunday or Monday we did the interview.
Detective Dronen: When this all happened, the girls called you and you called Trish. Had Trish ever heard about the story before that?
Lori: Yeah, Trish had heard about it. Fox nine had actually been down to. . . well no that was after the girls disappeared. I don’t know that she heard about it before they disappeared other than just well her and I are friends as well, so I probably brought it up to her because I did talk to her about other Carver County cases I was working on. She knew about the Carver County corruption blog once I got involved with those people down there. Sam didn’t come into the picture until after I’d been involved with the Carver County cases for a while
Lori: (After the interview with Samantha and Giana) “I left and went straight to St. Cloud and Dede and Sam were already there so I knew they didn’t have those girls. They were already at the hotel when we got there, they were waiting in the parking lot.”
Detective Dronen: One of the things I came across when I was going through some emails, was a conversation between you and Dede, which looks like it probably started in May, probably shortly after the stories in the Star Tribune were coming out.
Lori: That’s when I was trying to get information from her, hoping she’d spill her guts.
Detective Dronen: Then it kind of jumped to September and then went into October.
Lori: Because she did not know until those stories actually started coming out. I mean she did not know, in fact, I don’t know that she even really knows now that I actually talked to you guys and gave you information.
Detective Dronen: Like I said, unfortunately I’ve talked to a lot of people who’ve had issues with family court going through this case, because it seems like just about everybody has had their experiences and that’s part of the reason I think that they’re willing to try and help. Everybody’s had some sort of issues with courts and you know, I’ll be honest with you, I’m sure the system is definitely not perfect. Even just looking at this case – just how long this case got drawn on and on and on for a multitude of reasons all the way around.
Lori: The first year, 2 years even that those girls were gone, I honestly didn’t think anybody cared or were looking for them. You know when it finally came up again, I was like I’ve got to start digging here, I’ve got to figure out something because this is ridiculous. It’s just gone on way too long.
Detective Dronen: I would agree on that. I’m just boxing up this case now to try and be done.
Detective Dronen: Since finding the girls, we have to approach them very carefully, because of course part of the reason they’re so upset is that they feel they were never really listened to in the first place. I think, you know depending on how some things went when they were dealing with the court system in the beginning, it probably seems like it wasn’t necessarily their opinion that mattered regardless of what they said. Unfortunately for me though, I look at this cae and it just looks like the worst of the worst on the planet. I’m trying to figure it all out and go from there because the allegations are wildly different on both sides, so that’s the fun part for me.

Scandal in ‘Lawless Lakeville’: Matt Little Illegally Elected Mayor?September 12, 2016
Lakeville, Dakota County, MN: Mayor Matt Little is accused of committing fraud by lying about his address in order to meet residency requirements needed to run for office as council man, and later, mayor in Lakeville. The allegation, raised by Terry Dean, Nemmers includes, “City Of Lakeville Mayor Matt Little Doesn’t Even Reside In Lawless Lakeville? 2010 & 2012 & 2014 Affidavit Of Candidacy Proves Little Resides In Rosemount? 2016 Affidavit Of Candidacy & 2014 Lawyer License Info Prove Little Resides in Farmington? How Many Days Has Little Lived In The Lawless Shit-Hole Called The City Of Lakeville, Huh? Not A Single Day?” Scandal Alert! City Of Lakeville Mayor Matt Little Doesn’t Even Reside In Lawless Lakeville?
According to the Minnesota Constitution, a candidate must live in the city for at least 30 days before a city election in order to serve as a mayor. If a mayor fails to maintain a city residency, state statute provides that a vacancy in office is created. Handbook for Minnesota Cities: Elected Officials & Council, Structure and Role
Little was a former Lakeville city council member (2010). He was ran for mayor in 2012, and won as the youngest elected mayor, and was elected again in 2014. Records show during the time that Little served as mayor, he did not live in Lakeville, and did not meet residency requirements. As a law student, Little should have been aware of those requirements.This means that Little fraudulently ran for mayor, and illegally held office.
- 2010 Affidavit of Candidacy showing Matt Little’s address as 16162 Fairgreen Avenue in Rosemount. In 2010, Little served on the Lakeville city council. Property tax records indicate this home belongs to Little’s parents.
- 2014 Affidavit of Candidacy shows Matt Little’s address as 16162 Fairgreen Avenue, Rosemount
- 2014 Minnesota Supreme Court Lawyer’s Office Registration Listing for Little’s law license lists his address as 17523 Freeport Ct in Farmington. Dakota County Property Tax records verify this home as belonging to Little.
- 2016 Filing for Senate showing Matt Little’s address as 17523 Freeport Ct in Farmington.
- The Minnesota Secretary of State business record details for “Little for Lakeville” (file #3230155-2) list Matt Little’s address as 16153 Finland Avenue in Rosemount. Little is using his brother’s Lakeville address to qualify for eligibility. However, Dakota County Property Tax Records indicate this home actually belongs to Little’s parents. “Little for Lakeville” is a Minnesota Assumed Name, which was filed on February 25, 2009. The filing status is listed as Active / In Good Standing until 2019.
Little is also exploiting the tragedy of the Grazzini-Rucki case to make a name for himself politically.
Little took time from his busy schedule to publicly thank the Lakeville police department, Jim Backstrom and Prosecuting Attorney Kathryn M. Keena “for bringing peace and justice to our community” after securing a guilty verdict against Sandra Grazzini-Rucki. Little has given special attention to the Grazzini-Rucki case while ignoring more serious crimes occurring in Lakeville. For example, a Lakeville fire lieutenant recently resigned from the department after being charged with giving alcohol to a minor, and then raping him. In another recent case, a body was found dead at the side of the road. According to Little “peace and justice” was restored to Lakeville after Sandra was convicted, even as more serious crimes that pose a real threat to public safety are happening. Then again if Little does not live in Lakeville, does he really know what is happening there???
Also disturbing is that Little’s public applause implies that he supports David Rucki, and supports the unjust family court decisions that have caused so much pain and upheaval in the lives of Sandra and the children.
In truth, it is David Rucki who poses a danger to the community. Rucki has a long history of violent behavior, history of criminal convictions and has been connected to various financial scams. David Rucki’s Greatest Hits (Police Reports), The Provocateur Yet Matt Little remains silent, and never made a public announcement when Rucki was convicted of assault, domestic violence with OFP violations, or anything else he has done.
How can the community be safer when its own system to secure “peace and justify” is not only failing but also promoting corruption, at epic levels?
