A judge has found the former band director at an Allen County high school guilty of sex crimes. The Lima News reports the judge returned guilty verdicts on four of eight counts in the case against 69-year-old Dennis Dellifeld of Ada.
Hardin County Common Pleas Court Judge Scott Barrett found Dellifeld guilty on two counts of attempted use of a minor in nudity-oriented materials. He also issued guilty verdicts on two counts of attempted illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material or performance.
Dellifeld decided to have a judge hear his case rather than a jury. A 16-year-old student at Allen East High School accused Dellifeld of sending him inappropriate text messages last February.
