Delaware State Police are still gathering potential evidence against a pediatrician accused of sexually assaulting several of his patients.

Police on Thursday carried cardboard boxes from the office of Dr. Earl Bradley of Lewes. The search came a day after Delaware prosecutors filed a civil racketeering lawsuit against Bradley in an attempt to seize his assets and use the proceeds for the benefit of his alleged victims.

Bradley is being held in lieu of $2.9 million bail on charges of sexually assaulting several patients at his office last year.

Officials plan to ask that the civil lawsuit be put on hold pending resolution of the criminal case against Bradley.

State police spokesman Sgt. Walter Newton said the latest search is part of the continuing investigation.
