BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The son of a Mahoning County judge is in trouble with the law again.
John Dellick, son of Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick, is being held at the Mahoning County Jail on suspicion of violating the terms of his probation from a previous criminal sentencing. Authorities say Dellick turned himself in after Adult Parole Authority agents learned a gun had been found in a hotel room in Boardman where he had been staying.
A previous assault conviction makes it illegal for Dellick to be around firearms.
Dellick is scheduled to have a hearing in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Monday afternoon.
A statement from Dellick’s family read:
We ask that you respect our privacy as we address emotional family issues. We also ask that you considering praying for our child, as we would do for yours.
In Feb. 2015, a judge sentenced Dellick to probation and community service after 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 the 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 at the time of his sentencing. “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 Department 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.
