Aliquippa Deputy Treasurer Charged With Official Oppression And Indecent Exposure

An Aliquippa woman alleges the city’s deputy treasurer lifted her skirt and exposed her buttocks in front of her and her minor children during a backyard dispute earlier this month.

Delphine Gilliam, 56, of 1220 Irwin St. is charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct and also with official oppression for allegedly purporting to act in her official capacity.

Aliquippa police allege the dispute in the rear of 1223 Main St. occurred around 8 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 1.

Dianna Neil told city police that Gilliam confronted her at the rear of her address about an unspecified property dispute. Neil said her minor children and her mother Nicoleta Notrian were present as Gilliam began “screaming and cussing at her calling her names,” according to a criminal complaint filed with the court.

Neil told police that she and Notrian asked Gilliam to stop cussing in front of the children and Gilliam replied, “I’m sorry, but I don’t give a fuck.”

“Neil further reported that Gilliam told her, ‘I work for the city and you have to do what the fuck I tell you to do.’ It was then reported by Neil and Lotrian that Gilliam lifted her skirt and underwear to them exposing her buttocks to them with the minor children present, and stating ‘kiss my black ass.’ Neil stated that Gilliam continued to scream and yell obscenities as she walked away,” according to the police affidavit.

Gilliam through her defense attorney Steven Valsamidis denies the allegations. She was charged by mail and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing next month.

“Her character speaks for herself in the community and she is looking forward to fighting this case in court,” Valsamidis told BeaverCountian.com.

City officials didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

Picture?? Where’s the video?? I’m sure it will show up sooner or later. No buying the story until I see the video.

Keep it classy, ‘Quip…

I love when public officials act like they’re above everyone else; like we answer to them. No… You answer to US! For far too long, we’ve allowed these people to act like this. And what’s worse, it’s never going to stop because the citizenry refuses to vote these people out of office. They usually get by on name recognition alone, and seldom have any opposition because there isn’t anyone with enough knowledge about the position to run, or people are afraid to run opposition for fear of repercussions should they lose. Too many cesspools in government….

“Her character speaks for herself in the community”..indeed, her character was on full display for all to see, and I’m sure those children will have nightmares.

She is NOT an elected official. She is a hired assistant to Quips tax collector. I find it quite amusing that she feels she has some kind of super powers just because she works for the city.

She is a known offender in Quip to use that “I work for the City” to get free shit.

What is a Deputy Treasurer and is it an elected position? I haven’t heard of the position before.
In any case, elected public officials take an oath of office, and are aware of their rights and responsibilities. Abuses of office are making headlines everywhere, so public officials have to be held responsible for their actions if there is evidence of abuse of office.

That sums up the general attitude of our public servants in BC.From prosecutors law enforcement all the way down to councilmen. Fuck You I work for the city and you can literally kiss my wrinkled ass.

This is some BS, she is not the person that lady is making her our to be. We are always ready to jump and judge others without knowing either party. Let the judge and courts decide this case, thanks.

Sounds to me like she lost her temper over a long time dispute. Like everyone else in this world she will have to accept the consequences for that. Bearing her ass in front of kids.. really!

While what you noted here, *will* happen; the reason this story is believable is that the vast, vast majority of public officials believe in their rancid hearts what this public official is alleged to have said out loud.

Showing your ass to get a point on how she feels about a neighbor with kids present in my opinion, is not professional and definitely shows the true persons attitude under pressure! This is why this person should not be working for the city, hate to see how she would act like if something would happen at the city building to trip her off? If a guy would have done that with or without children present they would be lock up that night!!
