HONOLULU (AP) - A former Honolulu police officer has been accused a sexually assaulting a child over a four-year period.

Teddy Van Lerberghe turned himself in to police Thursday and posted $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in state Circuit Court this Thursday on first-degree and third-degree sexual assault charges.

An Oahu grand jury indicted Van Lerberghein the case last week.

The alleged abuse against the victim under the age of 14 took place from 2004 to 2008.

The Honolulu Police Department says Van Lerberghe was fired in May after nine years with the department.
