Texas judge William Adams is allegedly being investigated over a shocking video that was posted online this week. In a message posted on the Aransas County website, Judge Burt Mills says that police are looking into the allegations.
The video, which you can see here (you’ll need to verify your age, and you should be warned that it’s truly shocking), seems to show a man using his belt to discipline his disabled teenage daughter. The man is allegedly Judge William Adams, and the daughter allegedly recorded the incident herself a few years ago and has now decided to make it public.
The Aransas County message asked members of the public to refrain from contacting the police over the incident any more, possibly in response to a campaign by members of Reddit to get as many people as possible to contact officials in the area regarding the contents of the video.
