Of course not. Cronyism takes care of their own first and foremost. If you or I did this we would be going to jail.

The only thing she could hope for is money damages, and it sounds like the ahole judge has been giving her money for support (his story is she leaked the video because he cut her off.) I'm not justifying his acts, just pointing to the limits of our justice system.

They viewed this offense as a misdemeanor. The statute of limitations is up unless they enhance the charge to a felony which they won't because they only considered it a misdemeanor in the first place.

They didn't even call for a grand jury investigation. To some this would be considered felony assault.

Just as they can't charge the daughter for illegal downloading and stealing off the net either...Two wrongs don't make a right but in this case two things cancel each other out over time, that is where it should have stopped.

Support your Judge for reelection!

Too much time has elapsed? So time can clean all crimes? So after 50 years, all the 9/11 criminals are automatically innocent.

Re: Police Won't File Charges Against Texas Judge Caught on Video Beating Daughter
its TEXAS people... a lot of people in texas dont see any wrong in this at all...

not sayin all texans...but i lived in Rockport for a while and the state of texas is like living in another country..

they do things their own way there..

rockport is a quaint little town sitting right on the coast. its like florida without all the tourists

the city is known for its corruption just like most smaller towns across america

he may be harrassed, but even though i have seen his picture..if i passed him in a store i probably wouldnt recognize him.

he said she did this because he was THREATENING to take away her money and mercedes....so that should mean that she wouldnt post the video..

and how much money is this judge making in such a small town that he can afford a damn mercedes for his kid??
I am.. therefore I think

If that's considered a felony. They better start building some more prisons stat. Heinous and uncalled for yes but felony, not so sure. I'd say a lot of children would be in foster homes if this was prosecuted on a regular basis.

Being forced to resign his bench. And anger management might be more appropriate. Just my 2cents worth.

The timing of the release of the video seems very suspect too.

Just for the record I always vote against retaining all judges.

So I guess we should just scrap the whole "statute of limitations" thing huh?

Proof that we should abolish this whole "government" concept entirely. Psychopaths will always rise to positions of power.

You can't have it both ways.

The statute of limitations prevents them from prosecuting.

Oh im impressed a grown man beating a adolecent girl what a tough guy. Someone should meet this guy in a dark alley and see how tough he really is send the video to his daughter. Lets see how much of a man he is when challenged bye a grown ass man. Id pay money to see him get his balls beaten to a pulp. This is not a man this is a "girl bully" the lowliest of all bullies. What a discrace. If this is how Texans handle their children no wonder GWB is so screwed up.
