TREMPEALEAU COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A western Wisconsin school district wants a judge to continue a restraining order to keep a fired custodian off school property.

54-year-old David Booth was fired from the Eleva-Strum schools on September 12th. And according to court records, school officials were concerned that Booth would take his life and involve students and-or staff members in the process.

The district received a restraining order against Booth, and it asked a judge Wednesday to extend it. But a Trempealeau County judge said school officials did not have proper legal representation at the hearing, and the matter was delayed until October 17th.

By then, the Eleva-Strum School Board is expected to decide how long it wants the restraining order to continue.

Officials said Booth violated school policies by taking his daughter and 3 other girls to a boys’ high school locker room, so he could take their pictures while they wore football uniforms.

According to court documents, Eleva-Strum officials got concerned September 18th when he told school employees he would not soon “be around.”

Booth’s ex-wife also asked for a restraining order, but the judge turned it down. Other than the photos, school officials said the girls were not the victims of any improper behavior.
