Canfield man indicted for being a felon in possession of a firearm
A federal grand jury turned a one-count indictment charging John T. Dellick, 22, of Canfield, with being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, said Carole S. Rendon, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Dellick was taken into custody this morning.
Dellick possessed an Armi Galesi, model Brevetta, .25 caliber pistol, and ammunition, on Jan. 3, despite a previous convicting for aggravated assault in the Court of Common Pleas, Mahoning County, in 2015, according to the indictment.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.
The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Boardman Police Department. The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David M. Toepfer.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
