Dellick charge dropped, will be considered by grand jury

Published: Mon, January 6, 2014 @ 1:57 p.m.

CANFIELD — The felony charge of aggravated assault against the son of a Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge was dropped at a preliminary hearing today.

John Dellick, son of Judge Theresa Dellick, will now have to wait for a grand jury to decide what the charge should be.

Associate Assistant Attorney General Brian Deckert told visiting Judge Michael Nunner the state would like to dismiss the felony charge.

Deckert said the state “was brought in late” and would a grand jury to ultimately decide whether Dellick should be charged with a felony.

Dellick was accused in October 2013 of road rage after an incident on U.S. Route 224 in Canfield Township.

He was arrested by Mahoning County Sheriff’s deputies after the incident.

Now, hold on a minute.

A felony charge is pretty serious and can ruin someone's life.

Does a little juvenile bad behavior rate a felony level charge?

Let's see how this plays out.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time........unless of course your mom is a judge.

" a little juvenile bad behavior" ??? You got to be kidding!! It will play out with him walking away scot-free, until another day when his anger issues get him killed or he seriously harms another person.

Yes, I'm as serious as a heart attack.

You're right, he may get a little "street justice" the next time he pulls more stunts like he did.

That'll settle the issue, if he survives.

Mom is a judge, Dad is an attorney, baby is 19 years old and has serious anger issues.

What was the list...At least 3 separate incidents involving complete strangers, assault on a stranger (knife), rammed into another vehicle, verbal assault on another stranger, assault on his girlfriend, threatened to kill his mother, went after an ex girlfriend...any more we missed?

One isolated issue might qualify as a little juvenile bad behavior but this guy is a serial offender. Ask any of our 19 year old's serving in the military if 19 is still a child, or any single mom raising children at age 19 if they are still a child.

Wonder if his defense will be affluenza? Time for tough love. Parents need to let him grow up by learning a lesson even if it means punishment.

Your mention of serving in the military strikes a familiar chord. I said in another related post that young Dellick should be sent into the military.

There, he would find out what being a real "tough guy" is all about and learn some respect and discipline.
