John Dellick pleads innocent to aggravated menacing


John Dellick, the son of Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick. pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Youngstown Municipal Court today to the charge of aggravated menacing.

John Dellick appeared before Magistrate Anthony Sertick.

Bond is set at 10 percent of $20,000 and if Dellick posts bond he will be placed on house arrest.

Dellick, 19, is accused of threatening an ex-girlfriend at Youngstown State University on Wednesday. He was out on bond from Mahoning County Court in Canfield for a road rage incident in October.

Theresa Dellick is well known around Canfield for her "better than you" personality and her number one concern is everyone knowing she is a judge and has power. She made phones calls in the past to protect her son. Canfield people also say her personality is not far removed from her son, she is aggressive and power hungry. Her husband just cowers in the background.
The kid was kicked off at least 2 sports teams because of his anger, personality, and uncoachable behavior. She has defended him every time.

Leave this young man and his mother alone! These are minor charges, and he hasn't even been afforded a fair hearing yet. There is no reason to splash this story across the headlines so people worldwide can see it. I have Google Alerts for juvenile issues, and I have read perhaps half a dozen stories about Mr. Dellick in recent days.

If he is innocent, leave him alone. If he made a mistake, leave him alone. And let his mother perform her judicial service to the community without the distraction of this frivolous nonsense that never would have seen the light of day if Mr. Dellick's mother had a different profession.

I agree! Im sick of hearing it too. Unless your family is perfect, say no more! Im sure Judge Dellick would rather her son not behave this way! She is not above the same problems you and I face so please quit smearing her personal life all over the place. Its clearly not helping the situation... I don't know the Dellick family but being a mother of a 19 year old boy, I can feel her pain. Raising kids is not easy and they don't come with a book!!!

Mr House, Judge Dellick's response to her son's transgressions show poor judgement with little regard to the victims and their safety. He kidnaps and slaps around an old girlfriend and then verbally terrorizes her on a college campus. He picks fights with total strangers over minor traffic infractions. The judge abuses her position by getting special favors for her out of control son.

Mr House, instead of feeding your face from the public trough of tax money, maybe you could turn your efforts towards making this a better community. Your comments show an utter disregard for the common citizens of this town, and, especially for the victims of this mentally unstable kid and his enabling family.

Do everyone a favor and put this kid in the pokey before he follows through with his threats. I see serious bodily injury or worse in the future unless something is done. These are warning signs people!

How about this letter to the editor from 2004 and Judge Dellick. This guy sure knew what he was talking about.
Judge Dellick is wrong about endless second chances


As Judge Dellick stated in The Vindicator on Jan. 11, the trend toward juvenile offenders is rehabilitation. And I do agree with that up to a point. But once the juvenile has crossed the line from misdemeanor and even minor felony to "serious offenses," I tend to agree with the State of Ohio that says that juveniles can be tried as adults starting at age 14.

A very large majority of juvenile offenders know how to play the system. They are street smart enough to know that they can get away with anything -- drug dealing, rape, death, etc. -- and only be charged as a delinquent child as long as they are under 18 and Judge Dellick sits on the bench.

About the juvenile justice system, she says, "This is no kiddie court. We have serious offenders with serious offenses." Still she refuses to turn them over to adult courts. She also says, "you have to learn to prioritize," but she does not. To her, all juveniles, no matter how serious their crime, deserve a second, third or for that matter, indefinite chances.

Could the judge's kind of thinking be the reason that Mahoning County's rate of violent crime among juvenile offenders is double the state and national average? How is that "breaking the cycle of recidivism?"

How many more repeat offenders, and for that matter, how many more victims is she going to create before Judge Dellick realizes that serious crime should be dealt with seriously? Rehabilitation works only for those who want to be rehabilitated. Ask anyone familiar with a 12-step program.

In the case of serious crimes, punishment not rehabilitation, is the major deterrent.

MatthewHouseJD: If you have only followed this story for the past few days you have no clue as to what this guy has been up to.

Mr Dellick has been out of control for quite some time. It's a miracle he hasn't killed someone. He has quite the history of anger issues leaving trail of encounters with innocent victims all over Youngstown and surrounding areas.
