Delaware pediatrician faces hundreds of sex abuse charges

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- A Delaware pediatrician facing more than 470 counts of child sex abuse has been indicted on more charges.

A grand jury returned an indictment Monday charging Earl Bradley with more than 55 new counts alleging sexual abuse of about two dozen additional children.

Bradley, who was arrested in December, pleaded not guilty last month to charges outlined in a 471-count indictment accusing him of sexually abusing 103 children. All the crimes in that indictment were based on videotapes seized by investigators. Monday's indictment was based on interviews with parents of other Bradley patients.

Bradley is being held with bail set at $4.7 million on charges including rape, sexual exploitation of a child, unlawful sexual contact and continuous sexual abuse of a child.
