A years-old video showing a violent beating and emotional abuse heaped on an apparently disabled teenage girl drew international outrage and prompted a police investigation Wednesday after it was posted on the Internet.
The video was uploaded by a woman who said she was the victim – and that her parents, including her father – a Texas judge – were the couple seen in the video beating and cursing at the girl.
A person identifying herself as Hillary Adams, daughter of Aransas County, Texas Court-At-Law Judge William Adams, posted the graphic and disturbing video on the sharing site Reddit on Wednesday, saying she had held onto it “until the right time” but decided to post it after receiving a “barrage of harassment” over the phone from her father.
In the YouTube posting, the person identifying herself as Hillary Adams said the beating occurred in 2004, when her father was punishing her for using the Internet “to acquire music and games that were unavailable for legal purchase at the time.”

The actual youtube video is a little intense, so I will refrain from posting a link to it, but it is easy enough to find with a simple search for Judge William Adams.
