Family Court Judge under Investigation for Beating ‘File-Sharing’ Daughter in 2004

A Texas Family Court judge is now under investigation by the state's top law enforcement agency – the Texas Rangers – after a video surfaced of him beating his 16-year-old daughter Hillary Adams for downloading music and games from the Internet. The video was shot in 2004, but someone claiming to be his daughter posted the video on YouTube on October 27. The Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams was running for re-election. Chances are that re-election bid is dead in the water because Adams is clearly seen beating his daughter (who has cerebral palsy) on her legs and lower back because she refused to turn over.

You can get the details on the incident here, or watch the video to your left. We want to warn you that the video is extremely violent and contains graphic language.
