A graphic and disturbing video (below) recently appeared on the social sharing website Reddit.com and was headlined “Family law judge (Aransas County) beats and abuses his own daughter for using the internet. She uploaded the video."
The video's description claims that Judge William Adams, a family court judge, allegedly beat his daughter in 2004. Reddit users have rallied in their attempt to get the man behind bars.
Here is the description from the YouTube video, which has over 600,000 views:
2004: Aransas County Court-At-Law Judge William Adams took a belt to his own teenage daughter as punishment for using the internet to acquire music and games that were unavailable for legal purchase at the time. She has had ataxic cerebral palsy from birth that led her to a passion for technology, which was strictly forbidden by her father’s backwards views. The judge’s wife was emotionally abused herself and was severely manipulated into assisting the beating and should not be blamed for any content in this video.
The judge’s wife has since left the marriage due to the abuse, which continues to this day, and has sincerely apologized and repented for her part and for allowing such a thing, long before this video was even revealed to exist. Judge William Adams is not fit to be anywhere near the law system if he can’t even exercise fit judgement as a parent himself. Do not allow this man to ever be re-elected again. His “judgement” is a giant farce. Signed, Hillary Adams, his daughter.
There has been no official word that the description is accurate and/or that the man in the video is really Judge William Adams.
