No Charges To Be Filed Against Judge Who Abused Daughter

Texas Judge William Adams won’t face charges after  video of him beating his then-teenage daughter surfaced. Hillary Adams, now 23, is pictured outside her mother’s Portland home.

Angela Dodge, a U.S. attorney’s office spokeswoman, said prosecutors determined there was no federal crime depicted on the 2004 video of Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams. The decision came a day after the local district attorney decided the statute of limitations blocked any state charges.

Rockport Police Chief Tim Jayroe said he had discussed video of Adams beating his then 16-year-old daughter with a prosecutor from the U.S. attorney’s Corpus Christi office Friday morning.

“There was nothing that we discussed briefly this morning that to him would indicate there could be any federal involvement, but that he had seen the video and they would look into it,” Jayroe said…

Aransas County District Attorney Patrick Flanigan charges would likely have been pursued, but the statute of limitations has run out.
