A seven year old video has been posted online showing a Texas Judge, who presides over child abuse cases, beating his then-teenaged daughter with a belt. That video is prompting investigations.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports:

She was 16 at the time the video was shot, and Hillary Adams - now 23 years old - said that she secretly videotaped the beating because she "knew something was about to happen." According to Hillary, her parents were angry at her for using her computer to download pirated content over the Internet.  

By Thursday morning, the 8-minute video had been watched nearly 2 million times.

Rockport, TX Police Chief Tim Jayroe talks about how awkward this case is for him since he knows the Judge... and has been dealing with him in the course of Police work and trials.
