Texas judge William Adams will not face charges over alleged beating video

Texas judge William Adams will not face charges in relation to a video in which he is allegedly shown beating his daughter Hillary. The video was recorded in 2004 and the five-year statute of limitations ensures that police will not be pursuing charges in the case.

There was an online outcry after Hillary Adams posted the video via Reddit earlier in the week. She alleges that it shows her father beating her with a belt. She says she recorded the video seven years ago but decided to release it online because she feels her father ‘needs help’. Now 23 years old, Hillary Adams appeared before the media and said that the incident was allegedly not a one-off.

It’s not clear if William Adams will continue to work in his current capacity. The 51-year-old is up for re-election as a judge in three years. As Aransas county’s top judge for many years, he has presided over more than 300 family law cases in the past year alone. Some of those cases involved determinations of parents’ suitability to raise their children.
