Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, who is considered a "person of interest" by police involving the disappearance of her two missing teenage daughters, has failed to pay child support for months and may have her driver's license suspended.
According to a May 16th letter from Dakota County Child Support and Collections to Grazzini-Rucki's attorney, Michelle MacDonald, Grazzini-Rucki is "at least three times past due" in paying her court-ordered child support.
Grazzini-Rucki is the mother of Samantha and Gianna Rucki, who both disappeared on April 19, 2013, when they ran away from their home in Lakeville during a custody dispute between their parents.
Minnesota law permits the suspension of the driver's license of someone who has failed to pay child support or maintenance payments. Grazzini-Rucki has 30 days to contest the suspension in court, or she could pay the complete balance of her child support arrears.
Since Lakeville police want to speak with both Grazzini-Rucki and MacDonald about the disappearance of both missing sisters, it will be difficult for Grazzini-Rucki to appear in open court to contest the suspension.
Yesterday, Grazzini-Rucki failed to attend a hearing in Hennepin County involving the dissolution of a family partnership and over $562,000 of money from her portion of the partnership was allocated to pay her share of debts and obligations from her marriage with her ex-husband David Rucki.
David Rucki was awarded custody of all five of his children in November 2013, including Samantha and Gianna. Anyone with information about the missing sisters should call the Lakeville police department at (952) 322-2323.
