Police: Doctor Suspected of Abusing 16 Patients

Court documents show that investigators suspect a Lewes pediatrician raped or molested at least 16 patients.

Earl Bradley was charged last week with sexually abusing nine girls. Delaware State Police estimate they ranged in age from 3 months to 13 years old.

Only one victim, a 2-year-old girl, had been positively identified by police when they arrested Bradley a week ago. An affidavit obtained Monday by the News Journal of Wilmington through a public records request states that seized video files and software revealed 15 more unidentified victims and police believe
they will find more victims.

Bradley is charged with 29 felony counts of first-degree rape, sexual exploitation of a child by photo or film and endangering the welfare of a child. Bradley is being held on $2.9 million cash bail.
