Earl Bradley Molestation Trial Begins Tomorrow

06/06/2011

Former Lewes pediatrician, Earl Bradley will be in court tomorrow for the start of his bench trial. Bradley was arrested in December 2009 for sexually abusing more than 100 children, some as young as three-months old.

The trial was postponed last week after Judge William C. Carpenter’s father passed away.

The trial may likely be concluded in two days, as there will only be testimony from police officers and none from patients or defense witnesses.

The graphic videos showing Bradley raping and abusing young girls will be admitted into evidence and will likely be reviewed by Judge William C. Carpenter Jr., but not played in open court.

Meanwhile, media outlets have complained the judge has preserved the original gag order.

Initial concerns of finding an impartial jury vanished when Bradley waived his right to a jury trial.  With jury selection no longer an issue, the media is questioning the continued imposition of the gag order.
