A shocking video allegedly shows Court-at-Law judge William Adams from Aransas County, Texas, viciously beating his disabled 16-year-old daughter, who suffers from cerebral palsy, after catching her playing computer games.
Judge William Adams is seen repeatedly striking the girl using a leather belt as she whimpers in agony.
After the judge delivers around 10 powerful strikes across his daughter legs and backside, his wife then grabs the belt from him to takeover, whereupon he walks out only to return moments later with another belt so he can continue the beating.
As his daughter begs him to stop judge William Adams can be heard snarling: “Bend over the F***ing bed.
“Lay down or I’ll spank you in the F***ing face.”
The horrific video appears to have been captured on a webcam and is said to date from 2004.
The footage was uploaded onto the Reddit website late last month by a person claiming to be the victim – judge William Adams’ daughter, Hillary.
Hillary is said to have suffered from ataxic cerebral palsy from birth and has a passion for technology. The girl is believed to have illegally downloaded the video game as well as music.
Hillary writes that she’d decided to post the footage – which she’d been “holding onto until the right time” – after receiving “a barrage of harassment” in a phone call from her father.
The title reads: “Family law judge beats own daughter for using the internet, please spread”.
In total the girl receives 20 hard lashes from judge William Adams and one from her mother.
The mother screams: “You turn over like a 16-year-old and take it like a grown woman.”
As the girl lies crying on her bed he shouts: “Do you want to put some more computer games on?
“Are you happy disobeying your parents?
“If I hear so much as you raising your f***ing voice to me or your mother with the wrong tone or do one little thing or you look at me f***ing wrong, I’m going to wear your f***ing a** out with this belt.”
Although it has not been confirmed that the man shown is Judge William Adams, several people have posted comments below the video claiming it is definitely him.
One post from a J. Andre Bardin, who claims to be one of Hillary’s friends, reads: “I know in the article you say you cannot confirm the man in the video is him, but I can. It’s him.
“That’s his voice, that’s his mannerisms, and that is his house.”
The woman, thought to be judge Adam’s wife, who is seen in the video delivering a single blow to her daughter, is said to have left the marriage after suffering emotional abuse.
The woman has apparently apologized for taking part in the beating and allowing it to happen.
