A former White County prosecutor and Monticello attorney died March 1.

Lewis David "Dave" Dellinger Jr., 70, was elected White County prosecutor in 1966 and served for two terms. Dellinger received his law degree from Indiana University the same year he became prosecutor. He also practiced law in his family firm from 1966 until his retirement due to injuries in 2001. He was a former president of the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Association and member of the White County, Indiana, and American Bar associations. He was also admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and the Indiana Northern and Southern Federal Districts.

Before becoming an attorney, Dellinger served in the U.S. Army as a Signal Corps officer from 1959 through 1963. He was a lifelong Boy Scout and troop leader and member of many community organizations.

He loved to play golf and won the Tippecanoe County Club men's championship seven times.

Dellinger is survived by his wife, Nina Beth Dellinger; daughter, Andrea Dellinger-Winegardner; son Lewis Dowal Dellinger; sister Carmalieta Jenkins; and grandchildren.

A calling will be from 4 to 8 p.m. today at First Presbyterian Church, 104 N. Illinois St., Monticello, and one hour prior to the funeral Wednesday. Services will be at the church at 10 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Boy Scouts of America Sagamore Council or to the First Presbyterian Church, Monticello Building Fund.

  1. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
