Mum jailed for hiding her kids from their dad for more than two years

“Days after the girls ran away in April 2013, Grazzini-Rucki, along with her friend Dede Evavold, drove her daughters, now 18 and 16, to a horse ranch near Herman, Minnesota.The ranch was run by Doug and Gina Dahlen, who were sympathetic to Grazzini-Rucki’s claims that the family court system had failed her children.The Dahlens and Evavold also face felony charges of deprivation of parental rights for allegedly helping to hide the girls.Before vanishing, the girls repeatedly accused their father of abuse, but a court-appointed psychologist concluded they had been brainwashed by their mother, and a judge granted full custody to David Rucki.The teenagers moved back in with their father during the Christmas period  and returned to school. Rucki said they are still readjusting to being back at home.
