Texas' top court suspends judge in beating video
Edited on Wed Nov-23-11 01:21 AM by rpannier
McALLEN, Texas (AP) The Texas Supreme Court suspended a judge Tuesday whose beating of his then-teenage daughter in 2004 was viewed millions of times on the Internet.

Aransas County court-at-law Judge William Adams was suspended immediately with pay pending the outcome of the inquiry started earlier this month by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct, according to an order signed Tuesday by the clerk of the state's highest court.

The order makes clear that while Adams agreed to the commission's recommended temporary suspension and waived the hearing and notice requirements, he does not admit "guilt, fault or wrongdoing" regarding the allegations. His attorney did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment.

2. When I read the article I was expecting to see his apology
"I apologize to anyone who is offended by my actions."

His attorney's response sounds a lot like Tom DeLay after being convicted, "I did nothing wrong."

3. I agree, not enough BUT
this douchebag is a family court judge. The fewer cases he hears, the better.

5. Not good enough.
I want to see him homeless, if not flogged himself.

I'd volunteer to administer the flogging.

6. This is a perfect example of the 1%
A judge gets caught kicking the shit out of a defenseless child, and he gets a paid vacation. Let them eat cake.
