Texas judge in beating video returns to bench

ROCKPORT, Texas (AP) — The Texas judge seen beating his then-teenage daughter in a video she posted on the Internet last year is expected to return to the bench today after a yearlong suspension.

The Texas Supreme Court lifted Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams’ suspension last week. The State Commission on Judicial Conduct issued Adams a public warning in September. His first docket was scheduled for today.

As Aransas County’s top judge, Adams dealt with at least 349 family law cases in the year before his suspension, nearly 50 of which involved state caseworkers seeking to determine whether parents were fit to raise their children. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services will no longer file physical abuse cases in his court.

The video was viewed by millions on the Internet.
