Daughter beaten by judge 'finally snapped'

  • Hillary Adams posted video online of her father hitting her
  • She says she wanted to show him he was wrong

The daughter of a judge who posted a video online of her father beating her in 2004 says she did it because she "finally snapped."

The video shows Judge William Adams whipping then-16-year-old Hillary Adams with a belt and cursing at her.

Adams told CNN's Anderson Cooper she uploaded the footage to help her reconcile with her father and to show him it was wrong.

The now 23-year-old Adams denies her father's claims that the video is a response to him cutting her off financially.
