Police in Massachusetts 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 say Superintendent Brian Hyde faces charges of breaking and entering with intent to commit a misdemeanor and trespassing.
Marilyn King, the mother of the student who attends Mashpee Middle-High School, said Hyde entered her home last month without permission, went upstairs, and angrily demanded to know where her 17-year-old daughter slept. King said Hyde then rummaged through her daughter’s belongings.
Hyde has said he was invited into the home to do a routine residency check.
