Mahoning Co. judge’s son back in court

Dellick was convicted on an assault charge in 2013

John Dellick was back in court Monday facing charges.


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – John Dellick, son of Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick, was back in court Monday for another hearing on charges that he violated the terms of his probation by being in possession of a gun.

The charges stem from an incident earlier this year when a gun was found in a Boardman motel room where Dellick was staying. He was not allowed to be around guns as a condition of previous assault convictions. Those cases involve a road rage incident in October 2013 and a simple assault involving his former girlfriend.

Dellick’s terms of probation were extended Monday until November 26, 2016. He is no longer under house arrest and will have to continue with mental health counseling and random drug testing.

Dellick’s attorney, Dave Betras, said earlier that Dellick had the gun because he was going to commit suicide, but he later decided against it.

A visiting judge from Harrison County is handling the case.
