A Delaware pediatrician is accused of molesting and videotaping attacks on at least 16 patients, including some who appear to be no more than 6 months old.
Dr. Earl B. Bradley, 56, was being held on $2.9 million bond yesterday, said Sgt. Walter Newton, a Delaware State Police spokesman.
Bradley, of Lewes, faces 29 charges, including rape. He was charged last week with sexually abusing nine girls.
"Forensic evaluation of seized video files and software has, to date, discovered 15 more unidentified victims," according to a detective's sworn statement obtained by the Wilmington News Journal.
An explicit 18-page document released to the Associated Press detailed the alleged acts in exam rooms decorated with Disney themes at BayBees Pediatrics, Bradley's solo practice. A detective who viewed the assaults described in court papers the 6-foot, 225-pound Bradley as having a "violently enraged expression on his face" in one video involving a 2-year-old.
The detective described the video "as one of the most violent and brutal attacks on a child of any age" that he had seen.
In another video, Bradley abuses a patient who tried twice to run away, the documents said. Some of the video clips were 20 to 30 seconds. Others lasted more than 10 minutes.
Court documents said that a Dec. 15 raid of the doctor's office found six hand-held video cameras.
Authorities later searched the doctor's home in Lewes, a town of 3,100 on the Delaware coast, taking away digital cameras, VHS tapes and photo negatives.
Police said that a 2-year-old girl told her mother that the doctor had hurt her during a Dec. 7 appointment.
