Police Probe Judge William Adams Video – Apparently, this probe is following the release of a video showing Judge William Adams beating his then-16-year-old disabled daughter.
The graphic video drew international outrage after it was posted by a woman who told police she was the victim — and that her parents, including her father, Aransas County Texas, Court-At-Law Judge William Adams — were the ones seen beating and cursing at her.
Hillary Adams said in posting this to the sharing site Reddit she had held onto it “until the right time” but decided to post it after receiving a “barrage of harassment” over the phone from her father. It was apparently shot on a webcam, was also posted to YouTube.
Hillary said the beating occurred in 2004, when her father was punishing her for using the Internet “to acquire music and games that were unavailable for legal purchase at the time.”
Police shouldn’t have to probe the judges too much. William told Texas television station KRIS, “It happened years ago … I apologized.” He said the conduct is “not as bad as it looks on tape,” KRIS said.
A person identifying herself as Hillary, on a Twitter account using the same username as the posting on Reddit, tweeted to CNN, “I’m not sure how much I should say, except that above all we need to help my father instead of condemning him.”
