Dr. Earl Bradley's items won't be auctioned off
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - December 30, 2010 (WPVI) -- Items belonging to a former Delaware pediatrician accused of sexually abusing children will not be put up for auction after all.
Items in a Rehoboth Beach storage unit once rented by Dr. Earl Bradley were set to be auctioned this month because Bradley had not paid rent on the unit in almost a year.
However, Attorney General Beau Biden announced on Monday that his office reached an agremeent with Secure Self Storage to sell the items for $1.
"I want to thank Secure Self Storage for agreeing to turn the property over to the State at a financial loss," Biden said in a statement.
Secure Self Storage in Rehoboth Beach had planned a public auction this week to sell property Bradley had been keeping in storage there to satisfy a lien against him for unpaid rental fees.
According to a legal notice from the storage center, the items include arcade games, artwork and business and kitchen equipment.
Bradley is charged with sexually assaulting more than 100 patients over more than a decade before being arrested in December 2009. His trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 14.
