Mount Clemens — A 26-year-old science teacher who had sex with a 13-year-old girl in southeastern Michigan has received a 10- to 50-year prison sentence.

Ex-Armada Middle School teacher Robert Yaek pleaded no contest in January to first-degree criminal sexual conduct, using a computer to commit a crime, and child pornography charges.

Macomb County Circuit Judge Mary Chrzanowski sentenced him Tuesday in Mount Clemens after telling Yaek that he blemished the teaching profession and ruined the girl’s life.

Authorities say Yaek had sex with the seventh grade student between February and May 2014. They say the encounters happened in a closet next to his classroom at a house where he was staying.
