Daughter Releases Video of Father Whipping Her
NEW YORK - 23 year-old Hillary Adams spoke with NBC's Matt Lauer during "The Today Show" Thursday after she released a video on You Tube of her father whipping her with her belt.
The beating happened seven years ago, when Adams was 16. Adams hid a video camera in her room. She assumed that her father was going to beat her that day, so she set up the camera and recorded.
What's causing even more controversy is the fact that Adams' dad, William Adams, is a judge in Texas. She says she waited to post the video until now because she's now out of the house and far enough away from her father. To see the interview with Lauer, click here.
