Disbar Judge William Adams

    1. Petition by

      Andrew Fallon

      Boston, MA

William Adams is a family court Judge in the state of Texas. His job involves making decisions that affect the well-being of children. However, in a recently published video, Adams can be seen beating his then-16-year-old daughter (who has Cerebral Palsy) with a belt, while threatening and verbally abusing her, as "discipline". In at least one news interview, Adams openly admits that he is indeed the man in the video, and he did indeed beat his daughter. This sort of "discipline" is child abuse, and under no circumstances should a child abuser be making any kind of court decision, much less family court. Please, do what's right and disbar William Adams!

      It's said that he won't be on the bench "for a while". This is a step in the right direction!

      No word on how Adams will be punished, but the President of the Texas Bar is aware of the situation and the outrage surrounding it. Stay tuned.

      Not one person will want to sit in this psychos courtroom - unbelievable that this is who the county there should rely on to `protect` them. Judges need to be held accountable. This is ridiculous. Pure insanity.

      under no circumstances should a child abuser be making any kind of court decision, much less family court. AND I COULDN'T AGREE, MORE!!! Where there is smoke, there is FIRE!! and how many other judges are committing acts of child abuse that we don't even know about, YET?? Actually, Judge K. Mark Loyd of the Johnson Co. IN Circuit Court IS INFLICTING Abuse on MY SON, by shutting me COMPLETELY OUT OF HIS LIFE, when no allegations of abuse or neglect have EVER Been substantiated against me!!! It's time for an OVERHAUL!!
