Del. pediatrician charged with molestation pleads not guilty

A Delaware pediatrician accused of molesting more than 100 of his patients has pleaded not guilty to more than 470 criminal charges.

Dr. Earl Bradley entered the not guilty plea Wednesday at a two-minute arraignment hearing in Sussex County Superior Court.

Bradley, who was arrested in December, is being held in custody in lieu of $2.9 million bail.

The charges against Bradley include rape, sexual exploitation of a child, unlawful sexual contact, continuous sexual abuse of a child, assault, and reckless endangering.

A grand jury indictment returned last month alleges that Bradley videotaped sexual attacks on 103 children, dating back to December 1998. The indictment alleges that many victims were assaulted repeatedly.

Prosecutors believe there may be more victims than those seen on the videotapes.
