    A video uploaded to YouTube allegedly shows a Texas judge beating his daughter.

    A Texas judge has issued a temporary restraining order that will prevent another judge, made infamous by a video of his violent beating of his oldest daughter, from visiting his youngest daughter until a hearing later this month.

    State District Judge Kemper Stephen Williams issued the order late Thursday barring Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams from being alone with his 10-year-old daughter.

    Adams has not held court since his 23-year-old daughter Hillary Adams released a secretly-recorded 2004 video of him beating her with a belt.

    The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports that Williams issued the order at the request of William Adams' ex-wife Hallie Adams.

    William Adams' attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

    A judical panel is reviewing the case.
