    Craig T. kojima / ckojima@staradvertiser.com Bryan Lindberg, 42, made his initial court appearance on Friday. The teacher is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl and faces 11 counts of first-degree sexual assault and five counts of third-degree assault.

A state judge sentenced former Hawaiian Mission Academy teacher Bryan Lindberg Wednesday to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting a student over a five month period beginning in October 2008 when the girl was 14 years old.

Circuit Judge Richard Perkins also ordered Lindberg to pay $727 in restitution and $1,680 into a state fund for crime victims.

Lindberg pleaded guilty in November to 11 counts of felony sexual assault and five counts of misdemeanor sexual assault.

Police said Lindberg sexually assaulted the girl on a couch in his classroom at the Pensacola Street campus.

They said Lindberg, of Mililani, picked up the girl at her home at 5 or 6 a.m. every morning and drove her to school. The two would go to Lindberg’s classroom, where they became physically intimate and where he would “teach” the girl about sex, police said.
