Waianae student arraigned in school stabbing

By Gregg K. Kakesako

LAST UPDATED: 01:09 p.m. HST, Jan 10, 2013

An 18-year-old Waianae High School student was arraigned this morning in Circuit Court for allegedly stabbing another student during a fight last week at school.

Ikaika Andrade is scheduled to be tried before Circuit Judge Colette Garibaldi beginning March 11 on second-degree assault.

He was initially arrested on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder as well as third-degree criminal property damage for allegedly damaging a vehicle after the assault Friday afternoon. The attempted murder charge was downgraded to second-degree assault when he was charged on Saturday. The criminal property damage charge was later dropped.

Andrade has been held in Oahu Community Correctional Center since the weekend, unable to post $25,000 bail.

He entered a plea of not guilty from the Kalihi facility through a closed circuit video feed.

Police said at 12:23 p.m. Friday two male students began to argue over earphones at Waianae High School. The argument escalated as both men left the classroom and began to fight, police said. 

During the fight Andrade allegedly stabbed the 19-year-old victim. School staff intervened until police arrived and were able to detain Andrade. The victim was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Andrade was convicted of another assault charge in August and will be sentenced on Aug. 19.

He also was sentenced to 6 days confinement after being convicted of third-degree theft in September.

Tough punk with a record. Over ear phone that probably didn't even belong to him I'd bet. This is the beginnings of a long criminal record. It would be anything short of a miracle if he turned his life around.

Maybe he can get anger management in prison, where he'll have plenty of opportunity to practice.

Sad but better to lock'em up now and teach him the error of his ways then slap'em on the wrist and have him become a career criminal..although sometimes they become adult crumbs just because that is who they are and will always be. Hopefully this kid will have a change of heart..hopefully.

ok so here we have another situation where he was convicted of assault and is running around doing the same things. why does it take a YEAR to be sentenced? He was convicted in August and will be sentenced the following August? What kind of system is that. Sentence thieves, thugs and the rest right after the conviction. They know they've got nothing to lose so why not cause havoc before they are sentenced .
