    A former Delaware pediatrician has been found guilty of sexually assaulting scores of young patients over more than a decade and could face life in prison.

    Earl Bradley was found guilty Thursday by a judge who presided over a one-day trial earlier this month. Bradley's sentencing is in August.

    The 58-year-old Bradley waived his right to a jury trial after the judge allowed prosecutors to present a videotape of Bradley abusing the children. The video was found during a 2009 search of Bradley's office and contained more than 13 hours of footage.

    Bradley's defense attorneys opted for the quick trial so they could appeal the judge's decision allowing the videos.

    Bradley was arrested in December 2009
    after a 2-year-old girl told her mother the doctor hurt her at his office.
