ROCKPORT - The Supreme Court of Texas has lifted the suspension against Aransas County Court at Law Judge William Adams. Earlier this year, the State Commission on Judicial Conduct issued only a public warning against Adams as part of their review into misconduct on his part.
The most egregious of the complaints against Adams was a seven year old video posted online by his daughter that shows him using a belt, along with foul language, to discipline her. Adams did not face criminal charges for the incident.
In November 2011, he was placed on paid suspension during the review by the commission. Judge Adams has waived his right to appeal the public warning issued by the commission.
The lifting of the suspension order allows Adams to return to the bench in Aransas County immediately.
