Some of you might remember the shocking video from 2012 that captured Aransas County, Texas Judge William Adams beating the hell out of his then young daughter. His daughter had surreptitiously captured the judge’s acts and uploaded them online. Adams was unseated, and now has lost his seat. You can find the video online if you really want to. I don’t.
A Texas family court judge lost his seat in Tuesday’s primary election nearly three years after his daughter posted video of him beating her.
Aransas County Attorney Richard Bianchi narrowly defeated Judge William Adams in the Republican primary election, according to unofficial vote counts.
The 53-year-old Adams had not faced an opponent since he was elected in the 2002 GOP primary.
His daughter posted a video in 2011 that she had secretly recorded seven years earlier, when she was 16 years old, that showed her father whipping her with a belt as he berated and threatened her over illegally downloaded computer files.
