Doctor Faces 471 Child Abuse Charges


A paediatrician has been charged with sexually assaulting 103 of his child patients a total of 471 times, some being as young as 6 months old. Investigators have identified over 3,000 possible victims.

56-year-old paediatrician Dr. Earl B. Bradley’s Delaware practice was known for a child-friendly atmosphere, being festooned with toys, but this concealed the sordid abuse of at least a hundred patients.

After a female patient reported his abuse, investigators rapidly uncovered evidence leading to 471 charges of sexual assault on 103 children, with prosecutors investigating a total of 3,000 possible victims and expecting to add many more charges.

Charges already include first degree rape, sexual exploitation of a child, first degree unlawful sexual contact, continued sexual abuse of a child, second degree assault and first degree reckless endangerment.

He recorded much of his activity in some 13 hours of video recordings dating back to 1998. These recordings showed him molesting and raping the young girls he was supposed be treating, as well as one young boy.

One recording was made mere days before his December arrest, and showed a female toddler screaming and running away from him.

Authorities fear his crimes may make him one of the worst medical criminals in history, being to sex crimes what Harold Shipman is to murder.

Just how he eluded detection for so long will doubtless be a matter of no small inquiry – public hysteria normally focuses on strangers as being the primary danger to children, but statistics seem to indicate trusted adults in positions of authority over children, whether relatives, teachers, doctors or priests, apparently pose a far greater threat than any lollipop bearing old man.

If convicted, the doctor faces life imprisonment without possibility of parole. His medical license has already been revoked.

His defence intends to argue that he is insane, dryly remarking that “It’s kind of hard to argue with videotapes.”

    The death penalty should be an option for the courts on him as for his major violation of the profession of health.

    Hehe.... paediatrician. European English is silly. Really, it looks to me sort of like pay-diatrician. Ae is not an E sound. Period >.>

    The paed(o)- root comes from Greek, it's a root meaning child, the ae is an unfortunate romanization of a greek diphthong.

    I suggest you look it up in an encyclopaedia. Or a font book. ae is a valid character, but it just isn't used as often these days.

    Also on a different train of thought, I find the contrast between the frequent cartoon loli lusting that occurs contrasted with the reaction to a real-life sexual predator quite interesting.

    Finally, insanity? That's basically the "we've got no other possible way of defending this" defence. I hope the judge (jury?) sees right through this flimsiness. He should just plead guilty and be done with it. As if he's ever going to practice again.

    The irony here is that shit like this happens in Real Life, and people who only enjoy fictional scenes of this stuff get the worst sentences out of the deal. AND get labeled sex offenders even if no children were actually involved.

    You can't really blame lawmakers and politicians for that. After all, most of the crap that they pull out half of the time is really hard to understand or justify anyways.

    I kind of have to agree with Cerenado on this one. Politicans are complete shitholes. You rape a 16 year old boy or girl, you go to prison for a ocuple years, make bail, and get out for 'good behavior', worst case scenario you get 20 years, with a couple of strings attached.

    Possession of child pornography? At least 10 years, first charge, no warining, labelled sex offender even if no children were involved. Worst case scenario, probably about...25 years, maybe less if you got yourself a kickass parole officer, and stay on good terms with everyone; even if no children were actually involved, and you had zero intention of acting on them.

    What a load of horse crap. If you rape a child, you should get maximum sentence, 25 years, and be given no choice as to whether you go into General population, or not; judge can legally put you with either spot. If he's lenient, no general populus for you. If not, then yeah.

    If no children are involved, child pornography shouldn't even be a 'crime.' At least, the possession hitherto of child pornography, nor should you then be forced to be labeled as a sex offender, because there was no 'sex' involved; it was just looking at pornography. If someone looks at pornography, does that make them perverted? Yes. But if they look at rape pornography, does that make them rapists? No. It means they enjoy watching/reading material like that.

    I admit, I do enjoy a good 2D game that has rape in it, because it has a wonderful storytelling medium if they pull it off nicely, and not distastefully, because it can explore the psychological trauma of an individual's mindset after being raped, and that often can be really good storytelling, even if it is a bit dark, sick, and twisted. Granted, not everyone will agree with me, but eh. Opinions in this world are opinions after all, ya'know?

    But to cut this short [well shorter] I have to agree with both.

    ..Also, I think Politicians should shove their own heads up their asses. Personally, I've always preferred a government where there were very little politican control and more control to the citizens and people. Then again, I don't see the point of needing a President to decide all our decisions, and influence who we like or dislike in the musical industry, or decides our health care plans.

    But that's me.

    He even assaulted a boy huh. Well, I guess that's bound to happen when you do what he did for so long and for so much and you become engrossed in madness, hardly able to make the distinction from "right" and "wrong" any more.

    I'm sure this is What EN and all those other ******* are thinking about.

    its sad for all those little kids that got harmed but the real concern is all that disturbing 2D Loli stuff, its sick and disturbing >:O this guy isn't half the Pedo as all the fans that like Loli. i mean I'm sure if we left Loli alone one of the 100,000 people that like it, might have a higher % chance of molesting a little kid. its obvious Loli stuff plays a huge role is child molestation, just look at this medical professional molesting 100 children, oh wait whats that he doesn't know what Loli is? well I'm sure other Pedo's like to look at Loli pr0n... oh you're saying they don't know what it is either? well that won't stop us from trying to ban it, because banning cartoons is the only other thing we know how to do besides make sandwiches and clean.

    People are commenting that liking loli doesn't equate to liking real girls.
    The disgusting non-troll commenters here that really get sexually aroused around babies and children prove that you can link the two.

    eh no idiot.A sensation to drawings of fictional loli is only connected to that.
    About the real children there are other reason for that but are in no way connected to fictional lolis.

    Trying to connect drawed lolis to liking real children like that.You just created a nova exploding of how these things don't go together.

    No doubt it's pretty sick what he did. But what makes a person into a pedo? You're obviously not born a pedo so something must have happened. Why do pedos like what they like?

    They like to humiliate and abuse people who are helpless. I think it has more to do with sadism, than actually finding children attractive.

    I hope this guy gets raped by a hundred barbed dicks.

    Akumetsu only goes after the government not doctors.

    The more proper way of doing it would be to send Kuroha Diana Shiratori from Eden of the East.
