Canfield Judge won't hear assault case against son of another Mahoning County Judge

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - As new information comes to light about John Dellick, the son of Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick, the judge who was hearing criminal charges against her son is stepping away from the case.

Judge Scott Hunter, who presided over the arraignment of John Dellick on Tuesday, has recused himself from further involvement in the case, and has asked that another judge be assigned.

Dellick was charged with aggravated assault earlier this month after the 19-year-old was arrested for what deputies described as a case of road rage.

Dellick allegedly rammed his jeep into the back of a car containing a Boardman couple after a confrontation at Route 224 and Tippecanoe Road in Canfield.

21 News has learned that the incident wasn't the first time allegations surfaced that Dellick has been involved in "run ins" with other drivers.

In February 2012, Thomas Banna says he and Dellick got into a fight after he says Dellick cut him off on route 224.

Four months later, a fight ensued between Dellick and Paul Jones in which both men were stabbed after Jones alleges Dellick tried to cut him off in Austintown.

Three weeks ago, Youngstown State University police were called to the campus where Dellick was arguing with his mother because she took his car away from him. Campus Police Chief John Beshara says the younger Dellick agreed to go to the hospital for an evaluation.

After the assault charge was filed against her son in the latest incident, Judge Dellick issued a statement saying she believes her son has been wrongfully charged.
