Lakeville mother chooses prison time for hiding daughters from father
In another twist in an already unusual case, a Lakeville mother chose on Wednesday to serve up to eight months in prison rather than six years of probation for hiding her two teenage daughters from their father for more than two years.
It’s a sentence the father says leaves him in fear for the girls.
A jury found Sandra Grazzini-Rucki guilty in July of six counts of felony deprivation of parental rights. Judge Karen Asphaug sentenced her Wednesday to six years probation and annual stints of 15 days in jail until 2022, to be served on the anniversary that her daughters were found.
