Earl Bradley – Worst Pedophile

He has already been dubbed one of the worst pedophiles in US history and he may also soon be penniless.  Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden’s office has filed court papers seeking to freeze Earl Bradley’s assets.

Defense attorneys Gene Maurer and Paul Kania said they intended to pursue a mental health defense and that “expert” witnesses would cost exorbitant dollars.  If Biden is successful in freezing Bradley’s assets they will walk away from the case forcing the state – taxpayers – to shoulder the burden of the costly defense.

Maurer notified Superior Court President Judge James T. Vaughn Jr. of his decision last week. “No assets are available for his defense, and that’s that.”

Maurer also said that Bradley’s ex-wife and four children could not afford the costly defense and that Bradley’s parents are deceased.

Public Defender J. Brendan O’Neill said he was informed by Superior Court that Maurer and Kania were no longer working for Bradley.  O’Neill said that unless other private counsel step in, his office will be representing him.

Bradley’s March 24 arraignment will likely be delayed as state defenders begin interviewing Bradley and coming up to speed on the evidence.

Bradley is accused of abusing 102 young girls and one young boy.  Much of the abuse was captured on film.

It is believed that more charges will be filed after investigators finish interviewing parents and patients.  It has not been determined if Pennsylvania or New Jersey will also be bringing charges.
