Pediatrician to spend life in prison for molesting patients


Earl Bradley received the maximum sentence of 14 life terms, plus 164 years in prison without the possibility of parole.   The pediatrician was accused of sexually assaulting 103 of his patients.  A judge orders Earl Bradley to spend the rest of his life behind bars
Authorities testified against him during a bench trial in June.    In June, he was found guilty of 24 counts.   The charges include first-degree rape, forcing girls to perform oral sex on him and filming dozens of children engaging in sex acts.

The evidence against Bradley is based on video seized from his home and office, Biden has said. Public defenders in April challenged the scope of a search warrant used to acquire these tapes, but the judge ruled against them.   According to the indictment, the abuse occurred between 1998 and 2009.   All but one of the 103 victims were girls, some as young as 2 years old. Police arrested Bradley in December 2009.
