Former Mountlake Terrace High School student Darian Tyler Sharpe, 18, is scheduled to appear in Snohomish County Superior Court via video feed on Friday, April 26, for arraignment on a first-degree robbery charge stemming from an alleged incident in an MTHS bathroom on Dec. 4, 2012.

Sharpe is accused of assaulting a 16-year-old student, “knocking out one of his teeth and causing him to lose consciousness for a brief period of time,” court documents state. The victim was treated at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for “a broken jaw, missing tooth and head injuries associated with being rendered unconscious,” the documents said. Sharpe is also alleged to have taken the victim’s wallet, removing a total of seven dollars, throwing the wallet away and giving the cash to a juvenile co-defendant in the case.

At Friday’s arraignment,Sharpe will have a “not guilty” plea entered for him and further court dates will be set, said Gloria Parker, Technical Agency Coordinator for the Snohomish County Prosecutors’ Office.

Sharpe was expelled from Mountlake Terrace High School after his Dec. 4 arrest, initially charged with robbery and assault, and then released on $10,000 bail. The 18-year-old returned to county jail in late January when the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Department apprehended him; he is currently being held on $200,000 bail on assault and attempted kidnapping with a deadly weapon charges from an alleged incident in June 2012. The trial for that case is tentatively scheduled for this July.
