A former pediatrician convicted of raping scores of patients has filed a new appeal accusing public defenders of providing “ineffective” counsel.
The News Journal reports that Earl Bradley's appeal filed this week also claims that he was denied the right to counsel of his choosing when his assets were seized. The 60-year-old is serving 14 life sentences for child rape after his 2011 conviction.
In 2012, the Delaware Supreme Court rejected an appeal that argued videotapes of Bradley attacking young patients were seized illegally because police searched buildings not specified in a warrant. His attorneys didn't contest the videos at trial, but preserved the right to challenge the search.
The new appeal claims they should have challenged the judge's consideration of evidence that didn't appear in the warrant.
