A Texas Court-at-Law judge, William Adams, is in extremely hot water today after his daughter, Hillary, released this video of a beating she took back in 2004 when she tried to access the Internet. The video is very disturbing and shows both parents whipping the child who was 16 at the time, repeatedly with a belt and yelling and screaming in her face. Take a look and see for yourself.
Since the video’s release yesterday, his office has released a statement about an investigation that will take place. As of right now, the site has been inundated with calls, faxes and emails about this horrible person.
“I was holding onto the video until the right time,” says Hillary, “and after a barrage of harassment from my father over the phone, I snapped and finally uploaded it. Now I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner.”
The mother, Hallie Adams, now the judge’s ex-wife, has acknowledged the video on Facebook.
”I am praying for my daughters and me and my family to heal in all ways from emotional and physical abuse, for the current and continuing abuse of my children and me that has been ongoing to end – starting now – for my daughters to both finally be able to go to counseling both individually and as a family group with their Dad’s approval, encouragement, involvement and support, for him to finally make amends to all of us, talk openly with us, and take the first steps to letting our broken family heal.”
An investigation by Judicial Review in Austin is currently taking place after the flood of phone calls and emails. But Judge Adams remains defiant and says that the investigation will only clear his name.
“It happened years ago; I apologized,” he told news outlets. “It’s not as bad as it looks on tape.”
