Trial for judge’s son wrapping up

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Deliberations have begun in the menacing trial of John Dellick, the son of Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick.

Dellick, 20, took the stand Monday in the courtroom of Youngstown Municipal Judge Elizabeth Kobly, claiming he has done nothing wrong, according to prosecutors. They said Dellick admitted under oath he has been emailing and texting the victim in the case, an apparent violation of a court-ordered “no contact” order.

After closing arguments, the case will go to a nine-member jury.

Dellick is facing a charge of aggravated menacing, a first-degree misdemeanor, from a Nov. 6 incident on Youngstown State University’s campus. Campus police said at the time that he was screaming threats to kill two people, including an ex-girlfriend and another woman.

In court, the alleged victim told jurors Dellick got angry after seeing her with two other male students and threatened to kill them all and leave them in a dumpster on campus.

Dellick was arrested at his Canfield home.

Dellick also is facing a felonious assault charge, filed in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court, from an incident in October in which authorities said Dellick rammed his Jeep into a car belonging to a husband and wife from Boardman. Dellick’s trial is set for Aug. 18 in that case.
