Texas judge admits beating daughter in 2004 video – but will he face criminal charges?

A family court judge in Texas is facing a police investigation after a shocking video surfaced on YouTube showing him beating his then-teenage daughter. The judge, William Adams, is seen whipping his daughter with a belt and cursing at her for disobeying him. The full video lasts more than seven minutes. It was shot on a webcam seven years ago and was posted this last week by his daughter, Hilary.

Christine Romans and Carol Costello sit down with CNN legal contributor Paul Callan to discuss if this action was illegal – and what might potentially happen to the judge.
