    Please note that there are four pages to this article.

    LEWES: Dr. Earl Bradley's sister sounded alarm on abuse


    "A 2004 letter to the Medical Society of Delaware complaining about pediatrician Earl B. Bradley, now accused of being a serial pedophile, included allegations that he fondled girls he treated.

    The medical society has insisted the letter from Dr. Bradley's half-sister and former office manager, Lynda Barnes, did not include any suggestion of inappropriate contact with patients.

    But Chief Deputy Attorney General Charles E. Butler, whose office has a copy of Barnes' letter, confirmed Wednesday that it did contain an "allegation of improper touching." Whether the medical society knew about the fondling allegation in Barnes' letter, however, is "shrouded in weirdness," Butler said...."

    and

    "...Butler said officials are mulling whether to release the letter when the report is made public.

    Despite four investigations by various agencies in Delaware into Bradley's behavior with girls as far back as 1996, when he worked for Beebe Medical Center, no one ever notified the medical board, despite a state law that requires a written report from medical and law enforcement professionals who "reasonably believe" a doctor is engaging in misconduct or is unfit to practice medicine...."

    and

    "...Prosecutors have charged that Bradley made videos of 103 victims over an 11-year period ending in December that depict the doctor having forced intercourse and oral sex with girls as young as 3 months old. Videos captured some victims screaming and trying to escape from his attacks, and prosecutors wrote in court documents that five girls appeared to stop breathing or became unconscious while they were raped....."

    and

    "...Barnes said it irks her that medical society officials initially said they received no letter about Bradley. "Tavani knows there is a letter. She has seen the letter" that Barnes faxed to Tavani's secretary...."

    and

    "Something doesn't smell right there, does it?"

    and

    "....If I understood what happened with my brother I would shout it from the housetops," she said. "I'm just as much in the fog as everybody else. I think someone must have fondled him when he was a child. I don't know anything, but that's my supposition." [ETA: Might that be by Uncle William Bradley?]

    The reality of what Bradley is charged with doing to children haunts Barnes and the rest of her family, she said.

    "The only way we can survive is by blocking out most of the day," she said, "and then there are parts of the day when it comes roaring back in and you have to face it again....."

    Story in Delaware Journal News about pedophile doctors :

    "Pedophile Doctors Not New, Not Rare"
    http://www.delawareonline.com/articl...t-new-not-rare

    Among the cases it lists are California's pedophile child psychiatrist William Ayres, which has its own thread here. And Dr. Mel Levine, who should have his own thread.

    In assorted Bradley case developments:


    http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/2...-trial-to-NCCo

    EARL BRADLEY: Prosecutors won't oppose moving trial to New Castle County

    "Dr. Earl B. Bradley’s sex abuse and rape trial will likely be held in New Castle County, as state prosecutors said that they share defense attorneys’ concerns about gathering an impartial jury pool from Sussex.

    In a letter released today, prosecutors said they would not object to moving Bradley’s February jury trial out of the county where he allegedly raped or abused more than 100 children over 10 years...."

    http://www.doverpost.com/news/x11433...-Bradley-Bills

    Legislature acts on package of ‘Bradley Bills’

    "A comprehensive package of bills stemming from the case against alleged pedophile and former Lewes pediatrician Dr. Earl Bradley was expected to clear a few remaining legislative hurdles and gain approval before the General Assembly wrapped up its session June 30...."

    more at link


    And finally some background on Dr. Earl Bradley which we've been waiting for:


    http://www.delawareonline.com/articl...0315/1006/NEWS

    'Nobody is born like that'

    Jailed doctor has a past marked by family chaos, death, solitude



    "Aspiring physician Earl Bradley hoped to land a coveted seat on the Temple University School of Medicine’s admission board. Two students would be picked. Bradley promoted his candidacy in an essay.

    “He submitted this formal letter, written in crayon and magic marker, that railed against the whole admissions system, saying it took him like seven times to get accepted,” recalled Dr. Roland Beverly, then a student council member and now a California dermatologist.

    We decided he was probably not the right guy.

    and

    "....Though experts say it’s difficult to determine how a sexual interest in children is cultivated, Bradley as a child exhibited traits common among pedophiles.

    His parents died when he was young. His dad reportedly had an interest in child porn and an uncle was convicted of lewd conduct with girls...."

    More at link--Note that there are 8 pages!!

    A very interesting overview of Bradley. Answered some questions that I have wondered about ever since the arrest.

    This is a great piece of investigative work into Bradley. Too bad the reporters covering the Dr. William Ayres child molestation case out in California aren't inclined to dig into his background.

    Crayon?! Really?!

    I can't believe nobody forced him into counseling before all of this happened.

    I know that we are never supposed to sleuth uninvolved family members. However, am I the only one more than a bit concerned and confused about the former Mrs. Bradley. This recent article confirms one of our earliest posts on this thread that someone at the home address was an RN. Now, it turns out that she's not only an RN but an attorney. Was she ever employed at any of Bradley's pediatrics offices?

    I am so hopeful that the adult children of this monster are getting the support they deserve. If I'm not mistaken, there were earlier articles and comments following articles that stated that Bradley lived in the family home alone with his children. That worries me.

    Why can't you sleuth family members? Reporters do, all the time.

    Mercyneal--It's my understanding that we are not supposed to post any information on "uninvolved" family members. We can link to articles but we are prohibited from using their full names in a post. We are supposed to just use initials.

    I know that several relatives' names have been used repeatedly on the Ayres thread and that confuses me as we've been reminded not to do it on others. Maybe a moderator can speak to this issue. Anybody else have any input on this?

    The newspapers and other blogs have all reported on other members of the Ayres family. If it's been out there, it's fair game.

    It is correct that we do not post or reveal personal information about people that are only involved on the periphery.
    Just imagine your friend or relative is being investigated and you, simply because you associate with this person, find yourself being scrutinized and your information posted and revealed . It is not right and we try hard to respect the privacy of those that are not directly involved.

    If their names have been printed in the MSM, it is generally ok to refer to them by name. But posting their personal info is not ok.
    Minors names are never posted, unless they are missing children or victims of a crime and their names have been released by MSM.
    Thanks for your cooperation.

    Bradley defense wants video thrown out
    Says evidence came from unlawful search and seizure


    "The Delaware Public Defender’s Office wants a judge to throw out evidence gathered at the office of accused child abuser Dr. Earl Bradley, including video files that established probable cause for later warrants.

    The motion moves to suppress all evidence seized by Delaware State Police Dec. 16 and 17 because the evidence was the fruit of an unlawful search and seizure....."

    Will everybody be as shocked as I will be if this case ever comes to trial? I just cannot imagine Bradley mounting a defense in light of the massive evidence against him. Cases like this typically go straight to a quiet plea bargain.

    Often, the reasoning is that this saves the children from testifying but it also means that there is a lack of closure. It also prevents the airing of the absolute depravity of the crime in the courtroom. I, for one, would like this to come to trial so that a greater number of Americans can have their eyes peeled open and see the truth.

    The wrangling has begun. I hope to high heaven that LE had their ducks perfectly in a row with the SWs. They certainly should have as they waited a few extra months to go in. The children who were abused during those months literally haunt me. I agree with you, Steely Dan, I hope this won't go anywhere.

    If this motion is denied and the videotapes are admissible then the kids wouldn't have to testify and it could go before a jury. Which I'd like it to. The only plea deal I'd like to see is if he's in prison for the rest of his life.
