FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Aransas County, Texas, Court-at-Law website shows Aransas County Judge William Adams, who was suspended when a 2004 video was released on YouTube in 2011 showing Adams whipping his then-16-year-old daughter with a belt for illegally downloading music. The Texas Supreme Court on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012, lifted its suspension of Adams, allowing him to return to his judicial duties in the Gulf Coast town of Rockport, Texas, immediately.
