Supervised Visits For Judge Taped Beating Daughter

McALLEN, Texas (AP) - A Texas judge whose daughter posted a video online that showed him violently beating her when she was a teenager can no longer see his younger daughter without supervision.

A state judge on Wednesday temporarily ordered that Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams could have only supervised visits with his 10-year-old daughter.

Adams' ex-wife had asked the courts to change their joint custody agreement to either end visitation or require supervision.

Adams' older daughter, Hillary Adams, uploaded the secretly recorded 2004 video late last month and it's been viewed millions of times on YouTube. The video shows Williams Adams repeatedly beating his then-16-year-old daughter with a belt because she illegally downloading music.

William Adams was suspended from the bench Tuesday. A message left for his attorney Wednesday wasn't immediately returned.
