After a video surfaced in November 2011 of local Texas judge beating his 16-year-old daughter, the State Commission on Judicial Conduct suspended Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams. Last week, he was reinstated to the bench. The beating took place in 2004, too long ago for Adams to be charged criminally, but the Texas Supreme Court approved an agreement between Adams and the commission to lift the suspension, part of which prevents Adams from presiding over physical domestic abuse cases that use to make up much of his docket. Adams is up for re-election in 2014.
