Del. board suspends doctor's license
DOVER, Del. - December 29, 2009 -- 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 Dr. Earl Bradley for about a year, state police spokesman Sgt. Walter Newton says the medical board did not know of the probe until Bradley's arrest.
Division of Professional Regulation Director James Collins says officials found the doctor was "an imminent danger to the public" and decided immediate disciplinary action was warranted.
The board ordered the suspension Tuesday evening.
Bradley's inactive Pennsylvania license was suspended last week. He has New Jersey and Florida licenses, but it does not appear that he practiced medicine there.
