One thing’s for sure, he definitely had some “contempt” when he was layin’ the smack-down on his daughter…
The Texas judge who was seen beating his 16-year-old daughter in a 2004 video that garnered millions of views when it hit the Internet has been suspended by the state Supreme Court.
Judge William Adams of Arnasas County, Texas, has been suspended with pay pending an investigation by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct. The Associated Press reported that the order was signed on Tuesday by the clerk of the state’s highest court.
Judge Adams agreed to the temporary suspension, and according to The AP he does not admit “guilt, fault or wrongdoing” regarding the allegations.
Hillary Adams, the daughter who is seen in the video, secretly recorded the beating seven years ago and uploaded it to YouTube Oct. 27. The video was then posted on link-sharing website Reddit where it racked up millions of views and incited anger among viewers.
In the graphic video Judge Adams is seen beating his daughter with a belt and cursing at her. He has previously said that he does not feel that he did anything wrong.
“No, in my mind I haven’t done anything wrong other than discipline my child after she was caught stealing. And I did lose my temper, but I’ve since apologized,” Judge William Adams told CBS News Corpus Christie, Texas affiliate KZTV after the video went viral on the internet.
Yes, this beating looks very bad on tape, but do you think the judge was really out of line or was he just punishing his child as he saw fit??
