DOVER, Del. - Delaware's Board of Medical Practice has ordered an emergency suspension of the license of the Lewes pediatrician charged with raping nine patients.
Though detectives had been investigating Earl Bradley for about a year, state police spokesman Sgt. Walter Newton said the board did not know of the probe until Bradley's arrest this month.
Division of Professional Regulation Director James Collins said officials found the doctor was "an imminent danger to the public." Officials say he may have attacked more than 100 children. The board ordered the suspension last evening.
