Myles Bradbury was a successful doctor, he has been a specialist in child cancer at Addenbrooke’s Hospital for the last five years. Following complaints about his behaviour, an investigation landed him in Court where, on 15th September 2014, Dr Bradbury pleaded guilty to 25 child sex offences relating to 18 different complainants.
At this stage, as is so often the case, facts are a bit thin on the ground. What we can glean from the news is that the offences are as follows :
- 6 x Sexual Assault
- 13 x engaging in sexual activity with a child
- 3 x causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity
- 1 x voyeurism
- 2 x making an indecent image of a child (relating to 16,000 images – although we don’t know what level these were at)
It is clear on the back of the charges that Dr Bradbury is facing a lengthy sentence sentence. Just how long depends on the details of what exactly it was he did.
The Judge will be guided by the Sentencing Guidelines for Sexual Offences, but again, it is not possible to comment too much on what he will get, as we don’t have more details.
It is also the case that Dr Bradbury will no longer be allowed to work as a doctor.
