Remember that horrible video of the judge beating his disabled daughter? Well, don’t look for any justice. Yay, loopholes!
A family court judge shown beating his teenage daughter in a viral YouTube video was unapologetic Thursday, accusing his daughter of using her “disability” for sympathy and posting the graphic footage to exact revenge because he threatened to take her Mercedes away.
Hillary Adams was also talking, appearing on NBC’s Today show with her mother, who said she too was abused. Hillary Adams continued to use social media Thursday, tweeting that her father had cut off her cellphone.
Also Thursday, Rockport Police Chief Tim Jayroe said Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams won’t face charges in the 2004 beating of this then-16-year-old daughter Hillary because the five-year statute of limitations has expired.
Had the incident come to light sooner, Adams likely would have been charged with causing injury to a child or other assault-related offenses, Jayroe said.
“We believe that there was a criminal offense involved and that there was substantial evidence to indicate that, and under normal circumstances … a charge could have been made,” Jayroe said.
So, remember people, beat the isht out of your children. Just don’t get caught within five years and you’re good! SMH.
