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.”

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.

SOMALI IMPORT BEHIND STABBING TERROR ATTACK IN ST. CLOUD MALL, OFFICIALS DEMAND ‘TOLERANCE’
Our diversity is our strength
The Star Tribune and the Governor, both of whom are in full support of the mass Somali importation programs, immediately went into #NotAllMuslims mode:
Jaylani Hussein, executive director in Minnesota of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said Sunday afternoon that “we are definitely concerned about the potential for backlash in the community, both in the immediate run and the longer term.”
Hussein went on to call the attack “an isolated incident, and we still don’t know the full facts.”
…The cases, which followed the departures of several dozen men and women to join the terror group Al-Shabab in Somalia years prior, led the U.S. Department of Justice to select Minneapolis as one of three federal pilot cities for a project to counter radical recruitment. Ahmed Said, executive director of the Somali American Relations Council, said they don’t know whether religion motivated Adan, “but we know he is a Somali.”
Source of strength.
“Let us not rush and jump into conclusions,” Said said in a statement. “…We strongly stress that everybody calms down and focus on what unites us than what divides us in these difficult times.”
…In response to the bloodshed in St. Cloud, Gov. Dayton said he was “appalled at the terrible attacks on innocent Minnesotans in St. Cloud last night. If true that they were motivated by religious bigotry, I condemn them even more strongly. … I ask everyone in the St. Cloud area and throughout Minnesota to rise above this atrocity and act to make religious and racial tolerance one of the ways in which Minnesotans again lead our country.”
When Dylan Roof shot up a black church, all white people, and “whiteness” itself was to blame.
When a Somali import goes on a stabbing spree, it’s an “isolated incident” and the media and our traitorous leaders say we need to be “tolerant.”
Even though we’re the most tolerant people on earth — as evidenced by the fact we let our nation be flooded with hostile foreigners who regularly attempt to kill us, terrorize our neighborhoods, rape our children, and have zero tolerance for our beliefs — we need to be even more tolerant.
Minneapolis must be turned into war-torn Somali, because diversity.
