Attleboro Middle School Teacher Admits to Sex with Student
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A North Attleborough Middle School guidance counselor charged with having a sex with a 14-year-old student has been held on $30,000 bail.
Brian McBride, of Attleboro, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges including statutory rape during an arraignment at which the alleged victim’s father was removed from the courtroom after an outburst.
Prosecutors allege the 31-year-old McBride, a married father of a toddler, had sex with the girl at school, in his car and at his home during several months last year.
McBride allegedly told police his marriage was in trouble and he loved the girl. He was the girl’s chorus teacher and gave her private singing lessons.
The girl’s parents went to police last weekend.
McBride’s lawyer said his client was “well respected in the community up until these allegations.”
