A Texas Family Law judge and his wife were caught on tape beating their daughter with a belt.
Texas Judge William Adams was caught on tape “spanking” his then 16-year-old daughter – her offense, downloading pirated files from KaZaA. As the video shows Judge Williams seemed to have lost control and whipped his daughter with his “big belt”. (Judge to wife, “Go get my belt. Go get the big one…”)
This judge will not be charged criminally because this video was shot in 2004 so, according to Rockport Police Chief Tim Jayroe, the five-year statutes of limitations expired.
Really I can understand corporal punishment and
that it “may” be necessary with some kids but this is beyond the pale – especially for a judge. Most especially one involved in Family Law!
