Mashpee Superintendent Accused Of Barging Into Student's Home Will Face Charges

This article is more than 4 years old.

Authorities say the superintendent of a Cape Cod school district accused of barging into a student's home uninvited to see if she actually lived there will face criminal charges.

Marilyn King, the mother of the student who attends Mashpee Middle-High School, says Superintendent Brian Hyde entered her home in September 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.

The Cape Cod Times reports a Falmouth clerk magistrate ruled Wednesday there was probable cause to bring misdemeanor charges of trespass and breaking and entering against Hyde.

Hyde says he's looking forward "to getting to the truth of this matter."
