Mashpee Superintendent Accused Of Barging Into Home May Face Charges

Police are seeking to criminally charge the superintendent of a Cape Cod school district who's accused of barging into a student's home uninvited to see if she actually lived there.

Mashpee Police Chief Scott Carline says superintendent Brian Hyde faces charges of breaking and entering with intent to commit a misdemeanor and trespassing.

The police complaints now go before a clerk magistrate who will determine if charges are warranted.

Marilyn King, the mother of the student who attends Mashpee Middle-High School, says Hyde entered her home last month without permission, went upstairs and angrily demanded to know where her 17-year-old daughter slept. King says Hyde then rummaged through her daughter's belongings.

Hyde has said he was invited into the home to do a routine residency check.
