The Attorney General's investigation into The David School in Floyd County is continuing, and now a restraining order has been issued for the director of the school.

The David School in Floyd County has been the center of a investigation by the Attorney General's office for several months.

"The future of the school is in serious jeopardy," said Prestonsburg attorney Ned Pillersdorf.

On Friday a Floyd County court issued a restraining order for the school's longtime director Danny Greene.

"In my view what the Attorney General's office is doing is our best chance to save the school from the very serious mismanagement," said Pillersdorf.

The restraining order basically states that Danny Greene can have nothing to do with the school at this time, and he has to turn in his keys, his checkbooks, and all personal passwords for the school.

Other documents claim that payments made to Greene by the school were quote "without consideration and authority."

"There's serious questions as to whether or not money is missing, been mismanaged. The school is currently I think overdrawn at the bank," said Pillersdorf.

But people in Floyd County say whatever it takes, they do not want the school to close.

"I would just like to see it stay open for the troubled teens just to keep the kids somewhere to go to further their education," said David resident Joey Griffith.

Danny Greene could not be reached for comment.
