HOUSTON (AP) — A state commission has issued a “public warning” against a South Texas judge who’s already been suspended after a years-old video surfaced showing him beating his teenage daughter.

The effect of the warning released Thursday against Aransas County Court at Law Judge William Adams is unclear.

The Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct said in its warning that Adams’ actions in the 2004 video cast doubt on his ability to act impartially as a judge and interfered with the proper performance of his duties. The video was posted online last November by his now-adult daughter.

The Texas Supreme Court suspended Adams with pay and his caseload since then has been handled by visiting judges.
