The Delaware Board of Medical Practice has permanently revoked the license of accused child rapist Dr. Earl B. Bradley, a former Lewes pediatrician.

At a hearing in Dover Feb. 19, a quorum of the 16-member board voted to accept an agreement signed by Bradley waiving his right to a hearing and consenting to the board’s decision.

That agreement was finalized Feb. 18 in cooperation with Bradley, his attorney and the Attorney General’s office.

The document states that Bradley “does not admit the conduct alleged in the State’s complaint,” nor does the document constitute any inference of guilt.

In addition, the agreement requires Bradley to surrender to the state all patient records as well as all medications, drugs, needles and other medical materials in his office.

The meeting to accept the agreement was short and to the point. Only vice chairman Raymond L. Moore Sr. offered comment on the action.

“The order entered by the board furthers the board’s mission of protecting the public,” he said. “Our action reflects the seriousness of the allegations. We have imposed the most severe sanction we can impose under our statute.”

In December, the board temporarily suspended Bradley’s license pending further proceedings.
Bradley stands accused of 33 counts of sexual misconduct stemming from allegations that he abused children nine children at his private practice in Sussex County. Investigators have said cases of abuse could stretch back years and victims could number in the hundreds.
