Already serving a six-month jail sentence for driving the getaway car in the armed robbery of a Boonsboro bank last year, Tyreese Charlee King opted Wednesday to have pending drug charges tried in adult court, rather than juvenile court.
The pregnant 18-year-old Hagerstown girl appeared before Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell without an attorney.
But King said she was sure of what she was doing.
McDowell waived King to the adult court, noting she is now 18, has had previous involvement with juvenile court, and is serving an adult sentence.
"I also note you have a daughter, are pregnant and had been living on your own," McDowell said.
No date has been set yet for prosecution of the charges - possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
On Oct. 2, Judge W. Kennedy Boone suspended all but six months of the five-year prison term he originally handed King.
