Assault case against judge's son dismissed; could face grand jury

Posted: Updated:

CANFIELD, Ohio - A visiting judge has dismissed a charge of aggravated assault  filed against John Dellick, the son of Mahoning County Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick.

However the case could still be presented to a grand jury.

Dellick appeared in Canfield Court on Monday on a charge of aggravated assault which was filed against him in October 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.

According to the Mahoning County Court  website, attorneys from the Ohio Attorney General's office told the court that they did not wish to proceed with the charge, and were granted a motion to dismiss the complaint.

The state attorneys told the court that they may present the case to the grand jury.

Dellick  also faces a separate charge of aggravated menacing in Youngstown Municipal Court.

Dellick was charged in November after his former girlfriend claimed that Dellick threatened her and her companions on the YSU campus.

His next hearing in that case is set for February.
