The Texas Supreme Court has suspended the south Texas judge whose video-taped beating of his teenage daughter in 2004 ended up on the Internet and was viewed millions of times.

Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the inquiry started earlier this month by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct.

The order makes clear that while Adams agreed to the suspension, he does not admit “guilt, fault or wrongdoing” regarding the child abuse allegations.

Adams’ now 23-year-old daughter Hillary Adams uploaded the secretly recorded video of her father beating her repeatedly with a belt for making illegal downloads from the Internet.  The video was viewed millions of times.

The public outcry was so great that, in a rare move, the State Commission on Judicial Conduct opened an investigation.

In a separate case, Adams appeared in court Monday for a hearing regarding custody of his 10-year-old daughter. His former wife wants a change in their joint custody agreement, and Adams is under a restraining order prohibiting him from being alone with his younger daughter until a decision is made.
