A former assistant principal accused of sexually assaulting a student was expected in court Friday morning. 

Shawn Sharkey's arraignment, however, was postponed until April 9.

Sharkey resigned as assistant principal at Susquehanna Township High School after the charges were filed. He's accused of having sex with a 16-year-old female student between February and March of last year.

Officials said Sharkey first met the student at the school nurse's office and the two would meet up at hotels on various nights of the week.
