Jury acquits son of Mahoning County judge

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

After a trial that only began on Monday, a jury in Youngstown Municipal Court reached a verdict on Tuesday in the case against the son of Mahoning County judge Theresa Dellick.

John Dellick, 20, was found not guilty of aggravated menacing for allegedly threatening his ex-girlfriend Natalie Noday and her companions on the YSU campus in November.

Noday was among a dozen or so witnesses subpoenaed to testify in the trial on the misdemeanor charge.

It also came out in testimony that Dellick and Noday have been communicating in violation of a stalking protection order.

"His admissions may put him in jeopardy of a violation of protection order charge because that order was in effect, in place. However, since he lives in Canfield, those matters are referred to the Sheriff's Department," said Dana Lantz, Youngstown Prosecutor.

His father, John Dellick, said his son has been talking with his ex-girlfriend, and with the support of his family, is getting treatment he needs to become a good citizen.

"It is John's plan to continue the extensive counseling he is receiving to help him further his improvement through these emotional issues," said John Dellick.

Dellick is also scheduled to go on trial this month in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on nine criminal charges, including felonious assault, ethnic intimidation, aggravated menacing, kidnapping and abduction.

The indictment that brought those charges stem from two separate incidents. The first occurred in July of last year when Noday claimed that Dellick smashed her face against a car during an argument outside a restaurant in Canfield.

The second incident occurred last October, when Dellick allegedly rammed his jeep into the back of a car containing a Boardman couple following a confrontation at Route 224 and Tippecanoe Road in Canfield.

Defense attorneys are asking the visiting judge assigned to that case to split the proceedings into two separate trials.
