A preliminary hearing will be held Tuesday for a former Hawaiian Mission Academy math teacher accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl at the Makiki school in 2008.

Bryan Lindberg, 42, who faces 11 counts of first-degree sexual assault and five counts of third-degree assault, will enter a plea at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in District Court. At his initial District Court hearing this morning, Judge Leslie Hayashi set his bail at $200,000.

Lindberg, dressed in a green aloha shirt and jeans, did not make a statement at his initial court appearance. He was represented by deputy public defender Jason Cranburg.

He was arrested at noon Wednesday at Leilehua High School, where he has been employed as a geometry and algebra teacher since July 2009. Aloha Coleman, Leilehua principal, said he was placed on leave following his arrest and is not being allowed on campus.

Police said the assaults began at school in Lindberg’s classroom at Hawaiian Mission Academy in October 2008  when the victim was a freshman, and that the attacks continued until March 2009.
