John Dellick accused in another incident

Published: Fri, November 8, 2013 @ 12:08 a.m.

Staff report


The son of a juvenile court judge was accused in another assault in July involving his girlfriend at the time, but she and her family opted not to press charges.

John Dellick, 19, is the son of Judge Theresa Dellick, who oversees the Martin P. Joyce Juvenile Justice Center in Youngstown.

The Vindicator requested any reports involving John Dellick from the Canfield Police Department weeks before the release of the July report to the newspaper Thursday.

John Dellick most recently was arrested Wednesday by Youngstown State University police for purportedly making threats toward a woman. He remains in Mahoning County jail until his arraignment today on an aggravated-menacing charge in Youngs-town Municipal Court.

Dellick had been out on bond from Mahoning County Area Court in Canfield on aggravated-assault charges. That charge stems from a purported Oct. 18 road-rage incident.

In the July episode, Dellick was accused of assaulting the girlfriend, who filed a report naming Dellick with Canfield police. The incident with the girl, who was 17 at the time, occurred in the parking lot of Hilltop Plaza in Canfield on July 25.

A witness observed Dellick yell obscenities at the girl and then throw her head-first into a parked car next to his in the parking lot, according to a Canfield police report.

The girl told police she was dating Dellick for about two years, and that day, she decided to go boating with friends. Some of the friends were male, so Dellick became agitated and made threats that he wanted to cause harm toward her and her family.

The two agreed to meet at the Belleria Pizza in the plaza. According to the report, when she arrived, Dellick picked her up, carried her to his Jeep, threw her inside and would not let her leave.

While in the Jeep, Dellick pushed her into the center console, choked her and then pulled her out of the vehicle and threw her head-first into the side of her friend’s car, the report continues.

The victim’s friend also told police she saw Dellick force the victim to stay in the car, until another witness saw the incident.

After the altercation, Dellick attempted to use the Jeep to cut off the girlfriend and her friend on Talsman Drive.

The girl was asked by police if she wished to press charges, but told police at the time she would think about it. The girl’s mother and father told police they did not want to press charges at that time.

Canfield Police also advised the girl and her parents to contact the department if they wished to pursue charges in the future.

On Oct. 18, Dellick was arrested on charges of aggravated assault after he purportedly struck the rear end of another vehicle with his Jeep in Canfield Township. He also made racial comments toward the couple in the other car, according to the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Department.

His mother sent out a statement after that incident supporting her son’s innocence.

OK... so this troubled young man has not only threatened, but beat up on older people, now a young woman, and had how many instances of unstable behaviour towards others?!?!?!?

If he wants to be a bully and beat up on girls, older folks, etc maybe he needs a good, solid A°° KICKING to show him how it feels to be on the RECEIVING and of things, for a change?

In the mean time, he needs to be locked hip in a psychiatric facility until someone can help him get his head together...before he picks on the wrong person and gets his head caved in by someone who is able to defend themselves from his attacks.

Dellick will never pick on the "wrong" person. Cowards know their limits. The physical and emotional damage this boy has inflicted is beyond normal limits. There is no rehabbing a person like John Dellick. Not in decent society. He needs to take his violent rage to the next level; the pros in the prison yard. No small girls there to harm; only thugs bigger and badder.
Sam Amendolara, you are a good man, don't defend this trash. Don't tarnish yourself.
The parents of that poor girl made a mistake by letting him off the first time. Now they should not only punish John Dellick, but they should sue the pants off of his parents for complicity in this entire fiasco.
Judge Dellick should resign, today, for being an enabler and for her role in covering this up.

Well, one thing is for sure, this kid sure has been lucky with the number of folks declining to press charges on him. I guess it must be a lot of trouble to go through with going down to the the police and the paperwork and all. Not to mention getting this yahoo even more worked up at you. Might be on this ADHD medicine all these years, what we used to call "speed" when we worked double shifts and the speed freaks would start getting jumpy after just a few days on that stuff, fraction of the dose these kids have worked up to after getting it for years. Took away these boys school recess and chores, called them attention deficit and put them on speed.

With all the people he has hurt why has no one pressed charges? Is his parents pockets that deep? These people are enablers too. If that kid attacked me no amount of money could buy me off. This kid is a runaway train and needs to be stopped!

His failure of parents had to have known about all the incidents that involved the police. There is no way to deny that. And yet did nothing but allow it to escalate mainly because of her image. Now look what it has led to. First APOLOGIZE to the people of the valley for exposing us to this hot mess of a child then RESIGN or be REMOVED! There is no way this woman so lacking in judgement with her own child can sit in judgement of other children. Kasich intercede and kick her off the bench in disgrace. And lastly where's Munroes big mouth now? And how about Betras, being she's a republican you would think he'd have a field day with this and yet he's silent as a mouse. There must be something to that theory that she hired one of his relatives.

GDOG... Resign????? How many jobs you quit because your family behaved poorly I bet none. All the allegatiopns you suggest get into the Charlie Sheen conspiracy levels-you have NNNOOOOO IDEA if its true. Vindy surely there must be someone at the paper who says"we cant just reprint the same story every day that would make us lame".

How in heavens name do you let some ahole beat up your daughter and 'think about' pressing charges? Is there money changing hands here? And what is with Canfield police? How many reports do they have on this kid?

I think Dave Betras is being a gentleman in not saying anything. I'm not his biggest fan but I think he is taking the high road on this. I don't care about Judge Dellick's reputation, I care about the safety of the community. I know she must be broken hearted but she has to put safety first, even her childs. It's very hard being a parent these days, so many bad influences coming in from every direction. Our kids are swamped with bad role models. I urge Judge Dellick to not bail her son out anymore. At least the community is safer with him behind bars. I pray for a good outcome.

The sad thing is that this isn't the same story everyday. It's new allegations everyday. How long has this guy been bullying people?

Thank goodness the latest victims called the police and pressed charges.

I'm sorry, I did not mean to infer CPD was covering anything up. I meant to type 'what about' CPD, how many reports do they have. Not 'what's with'. I did not proof read and my brain works faster than my 2 fingers. My bet is CPD would like to put this clown in his place.

What action by the justice system can be taken against John Dellick that can make this girl and her family secure? Locking him up forever is about the only remedy and that isn't going to happen. So what are they to do? Be assured by some psychiatrist that Dellick is now on the "right" medications and is no threat? That would not make me feel secure if it was my daughter or my family.
If it was my daughter, I would have to turn the tables on this young man; make him the hunted, and not the hunter. Make him the one who is frightened I might act irrationally or have someone act that way on my behalf. Maybe to the point of making him disappear, permanently. My daughter would be safe, but now I would be in jeopardy for plotting and carrying out such a thing.
John Dellick, by his actions, has really forfeited his right to be free. What he has done is a terrible crime. Terrorism. But our system doesn't see it that way, so honest people have their lives disrupted permanently.

seems he's causing a lot of problems in canfield. Lets see how long he'd survive pulling that crap in Youngstown! Don't think he'd be around very long. I always thought canfield didn't put up with that kind of bull!! Guess I was wrong. Think I'm gonna run somebody off the road and slap some innocent girl around in a public parking lot. Wonder what that will get me? 2 to 5 I'd bet

As it has been previously stated ,Theresa Dellick wouldn't have that position if Betras would run a candidate against her. Of course, he can't do that since she gave a $63,000 a year job to his brother-in-law!!

Vinglass is spot on, James Barkett is grossly under qualified for his position as well as many workers in her court. Look at the probation officer that was sleeping with the kids on his active cases!!!
She cant run a court and order kids into treatment when she has a child who acts like this..

Auntiem: I seriously doubt anyone in the whole dellick family tree reads the online Vindy or the comments posted. If they did, we would all probably get our accounts yanked/edited/etc/brought up on charges due to her being a judge and wielding that kind of "boss hawg" small-town power in the valley.... irony or sarcasm, you call it.

Hey Terrapin, you ahole. I don't have dirtball for family members who get into trouble. This is typical of your ilk. This women hold a position of authority and is therefore held to a higher standard. Allegations huh? Police Department after department has report after report on this kid not allegations. But being a fellow rescumlican I would expect you to defend her.

The cops are just as much to blame as anyone else.Aggravated menacing is one of only a few charges when the victim has the say in pressing charges. Otherwise, Under the Ohio Revised code an officer who sees evidence of an assault or is informed of it by another party who witnessed it (as well as a slew of other crimes) is supposed to make an arrest -with or without the cooperation of the victim. The officer's observing the evidence or the witnesses written statement is enough for a jury to convict, and any judge would have to instruct the jury of that fact. So why didn't the officers involved in any of these incidents enforce the laws they swore to uphold?
