Earl Bradley – Waiting On A Verdict

06/08/2011

Caution – Graphic and disturbing details

Bradley after 2009 arrest

The bench trial of one of the most heinous child molesters was over quickly.

About 50 spectators sat in the courtroom as Earl Bradley was led in wearing a gray prison jumpsuit and white sneakers.  Many spectators wept quietly, others held hands.

The proceeding lasted some 3 hours with only two police officers testifying for the prosecution.  The defense offered no case.

At the beginning of the trial, by agreement, the 470 counts were consolidated into 24 counts alleging rape, assault and sexual exploitation.

A stipulation was also read in which Bradley agreed he raped or assaulted 86 children and videotaped the attacks over an 11-year period.

State Police computer forensics expert Det. Scott Garland and others uncovered 13 hours, 35 minutes and 6 seconds of videotape of alleged sex crimes against 86 victims.

“The rapes were violent, they were brutal,” Garland testified. “… The violence we were seeing was significant, and beyond anything I had ever witnessed. Nothing had prepared me for it.”

Garland explained how some videos showed Bradley with his hands wrapped tightly around the heads of young children, violently forcing them to perform oral sex on him. When Bradley was finished with such assaults, he would pick up the young victims by the head and throw them several feet through the air onto a couch.  Sometimes Bradley would perform “rescue breathing” and chest rubs on the semi-conscious victims.

Garland described a child is dying in front of him. He says the girl was choking and slapping Bradley’s leg pleading for him to stop, when she went limp.

The child’s face was gray; her fingernails blue. Bradley then gives her mouth-to-mouth to resuscitate her. When she wakes up, he says, “Let’s go get a popsicle!”

Bradley was emotionless during the testimony and at the end of proceedings, told Judge Carpenter he did not wish to testify in his own defense.

The tapes were not played in open court.

Judge William Carpenter Jr. will review the testimony and videotape evidence and then notify lawyers when he has reached a verdict.

Castration by a rusty hacksaw, prior to death, is the verdict I reached!

    I hadn’t heard of this case. I agree with your verdict. This is truly horrific and I can’t understand how this went on for 11 years.

    I’m dumbfounded. This guy was a Dr., right? Where were the patients or nurses? Nobody could hear anything going on from the other side of the door (since apparently, no one was in the room)?

    This is not a good story to be reading before bed. UGH! How awful. Those poor children. And I thought Casey Anthony was bad. She’s a saint compared to this monster. At least sweet Caylee didn’t have to endure YEARS of torture. Sad all around.
