Delaware Pediatrician Appeals Conviction for Child Molestation
The former Delaware pediatrician in prison for molesting nearly l100 patients has filed a new appeal his conviction.
Earl Bradley accuses his public defenders of ineffective counsel.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that his appeal claims he was denied his right to choose his own counsel when Attorney General Beau Biden’s office seized his assets.
He was ultimately provided attorneys from the public defender’s office.
In addition, the new appeal claims that those lawyers, Robert Goff and Dean Johnson, should have challenged a Superior Court judge’s consideration of evidence that did not appear in the actual warrant.
He was convicted after a one day trial in which his attorneys did not contest videotaped evidence which was not shown in court but preserved the right to challenge the search as illegal.
The 60 year old Bradley is serving 14 life sentences plus 164 years after a one day trial in June of 2011.
