Dr. Evil: Pediatrician Sexually Abused Young Patients

Dec 26, 2009 • Crime, News

He is more than the Grinch who stole Christmas. He’s stolen something far more sacred for a lot of the patients whose parents trusted him with their children’s well being.

Evidence seized from the Georgetown, Delaware, office of Dr. Earl Bradley suggests that he sexually abused many of his young patients.

Alexis Slutsky, a deputy attorney general assigned to the state’s Child Predator Task Force, told the Associated Press that the volume of evidence seized from Bradley’s practice and home, which include video tapes and digital files Bradley recorded himself of the attacks, makes it hard to accurately estimate the number of victims.

“I’m comfortable in saying probably well over 100 potential victims,” Slutsky said at a news conference with Attorney General Beau Biden and other law enforcement officials.

Bradley, 56, was arrested last week and is being held in prison on $2.9 million bond. So far, he’s been charged with 33 felony counts relating to seven victims. A preliminary hearing has been postponed until January 14.

Here’s the hard lesson: you can’t trust anyone. Even those who have taken the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm.

We here at Sex and the 405 sincerely hope he suffers disfigurement, dismemberment and the last gasp at a hangman’s noose.
