Bryan Lee Johnston


A former Hillcrest High School teacher and coach was sentenced to a rider program Monday for stalking a former student.

Bryan Lee Johnston, 50, was arrested in September following an investigation into the stalking. The Idaho Falls Police Department discovered Johnston had enlisted current and former students in his attempts to stalk the victim, and that he engaged in bizarre behavior such as putting a recorder in the victim's bedroom and urinating on her bed. Johnston resigned from his teaching position in August.
