Former pediatric physician Earl Bradley of Lewes was sentenced Friday to 14 life terms plus 164 years in prison without the possibility of parole for the sexual abuse of young patients.
As part of the sentence handed down, Bradley was ordered to have no contact with his victims or their families, must submit to HIV testing and DNA sampling, must have no unsupervised contact with children under 18 years of age, and was prohibited from possessing publications or photos depicting children under the age of 18. In addition, he was ordered to reimburse the Victims’ Compensation Assistance Program for $66,528 that it has paid to victims, as well as any future payments made from the Program to victims and their families.
Following the sentencing hearing Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden stated “Our first priority was to ensure that Earl Bradley would not walk out of prison during his lifetime, and today’s sentence means he will never again hurt a child. Our second priority was taking care of the victims and their families, and that is a job that never ends. We will continue to provide for the victims and their families as they go about healing from this tragedy in the weeks, months, and years to come. I want to thank our prosecutors, victim services staff, and the Delaware State Police for their excellent work on this case.”
