John Dellick gets probation, community service

john Dellick was sentenced on two assault charges in youngstown


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The son of Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick learned his sentenced Thursday.

John Dellick, 20, will not face any prison time for the two assault charges to which he pleaded guilty Dec. 8. He pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in an October 2013 road rage incident and simple assault in another case involving his former girlfriend.

The judge presiding over this case said Dellick has used the last 15 months to show he can follow the law. And that was a factor in Dellick being sentenced to probation and community service.

“I know I’ve made mistakes and I am trying to make them better,” Dellick said. “I would like to apologize and I want to say I am sorry for the mistakes that I have made. I am sorry to everyone who I have hurt, embarrassed and angered.”

Mahoning County Sheriff’s police said Dellick rammed his car into the car of 58-year-old Angelo Gomez. Then Gomez said he yelled at Dellick for throwing a bottle out the window, and said Dellick yelled ethnic slurs at him and at his wife.

“I am just glad this is over and I hope the gentleman gets psychological help in the future. And I know my wife is happy this is over,” Gomez said.

Dellick’s lawyer said he is receiving that psychological help, taking medication and going to counseling. And that will continue through Dellick’s 18 months of probation and 160 hours of community service.

“He is learning about himself, learning about his problems, not creating any other problems and looking on to improve himself in the future,” his attorney, Sam Amendolara, said.

“I am sorry my voice is shaky. I am just very sorry. I am looking to make myself a better person. Thank you very much,” Dellick said.

The judge also ordered Dellick to pay $500 in restitution to Angelo Gomez to cover out-of-pocket expenses Gomez needed to fix his car.
