Texas Judge Admits Beating His Daughter
Hillary Adams, now 23, says her father, Aransas County, TX, judge William Adams, repeatedly struck and cursed at her as a teenager.
In an interview with KZTV outside his Rockport, Texas, home Wednesday, Adams confirmed to a reporter that he was the man beating his daughter with a belt and a board on the video.
“She’s mad because I’ve ordered her to bring the car back, in a nutshell, but yeah, that’s me. I lost my temper,” Adams told the station. “Her mother was there, she wasn’t hurt … it was a long time ago … I really don’t want to get into this right now because as you can see my life’s been made very difficult over this child.”
Hillary Adams has congenital ataxic cerebral palsy.
The video is punctuated by cracks of the man’s belt and the girl’s screams and cries.
At one point, the man says to his near-hysterical daughter, “What happened to you, Hillary? Once you were an obedient, nice little girl. Now you lie, cheat and steal.”
At another point in the 7 1/2-minute video, he yells at her, “You want to put some more computer games on? You want some more?”
“Are you happy?” he asks her. “Disobeying your parents? You don’t deserve to f—ing be in this house.”
He also berates the girl’s mother for allowing a “f—ing computer” in the house.Click here for reuse options!
