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.''
