A Paedophile children’s doctor used spy pen to record patients (children) undressing admitted to sexually abusing 18 seriously ill boys in his care and has been jailed for 22 years.

According to Daily Mail report

‘’Myles Bradbury, 41, a consultant paediatric haematologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, admitted abusing boys aged between ten and 16, including children with leukaemia, haemophilia, and other serious illnesses.

Judge Gareth Hawkesworth, sitting at Cambridge Crown Court, described Bradbury’s actions as ‘one of the worst forms of sexual abuse imaginable’.

Married Bradbury, from Herringswell, Suffolk, carried out medical examinations on boys ‘purely for his own sexual gratification’, the court heard.

In some cases he exaggerated the seriousness of the child’s illness to give him more opportunities to abuse particular patients. 

He filmed some of them using secret spy cameras hidden inside pens in his pocket and abused others behind a curtain while their unsuspecting parents were in the room.

In total, he pleaded guilty to 25 offences, including sexual assault, voyeurism and possessing more than 16,000 indecent images, against boys aged between 10 and 16, and was sentenced today.

Some of the victims have since died, without seeing their abuser brought to justice. 

Judge Gareth Hawkesworth said Bradbury’s sentence would be reduced because of his early guilty pleas although ‘some might observe’ that the overwhelming evidence against him meant he had little choice but to admit the offences.

Describing Bradbury as ‘manipulative’, he added: ‘For a doctor to attack children in this way is one of the worst forms of sexual abuse imaginable even if it does not involve physical violence which goes beyond the abuse itself or penetrative activity.’

The judge continued: ‘These boys were all vulnerable and gravely ill.

‘In all my years on the bench, I have never come across a more culpable and grave course of sexual criminality which has involved such a gross and grotesque breach and betrayal of your Hippocratic Oath and trust reposed in you by your patients, their families and colleagues. 

 

‘There are almost too many aggravating factors to list in your prolonged, carefully planned, cruel and persistent campaign of abuse.

‘It is implicit in what you did for your own sexual gratification that you were targeting the most vulnerable, sick children.

‘At the top of this comes the breach of trust.

‘Your colleagues remain guilt ridden at having been unable to detect your offending earlier and having been successfully manipulated by you into ignorance.

‘Your actions have undermined public trust in an already overstretched health service and have caused enormous expense and upheaval in the internal inquiries that inevitably followed your suspension from practice.

‘All this almost pales into insignificance set against the trauma, fear and distress you have caused to your victims and their families – considerable psychological harm, I have no doubt – which I suspect will linger with them for the rest of their lives.’ 

‘It is implicit in what you did for your own sexual gratification that you were targeting even the most vulnerable – sick children and what you did to them require careful and significant planning.

‘You bought a camera pen so you could record things without your victims noticing and when the balloon went up you disposed of the hard drive of your laptop, onto which, I infer, many images had been recorded.’

 

Judge Hawkesworth, who placed Bradbury on the sex offenders register for life and making him subject to a sexual offences prevention order, added that the doctor’s recognition of his deviancy meant the risk he posed to children could be managed. 

The judge continued: ‘Nobody will ever know the precise extent of your activities, thus increasing the agony of those you pretended to treat and their families particularly of deceased children in not knowing whether they too had been abused in this way.’ 

The sentence means Bradbury will never see his daughter, born during the police investigation, unsupervised.

He was sacked from his job earlier this year and will never work as a doctor again, the court heard. 

‘I’D LIKE TO SEE MYLES BRADBURY AND ASK HIM WHY HE DID WHAT HE DID TO ME’ 

Cambridge Crown Court was told that many of Bradbury’s victims would be isolated from their parents and asked to remove their clothes before the doctor would grope their genitals.  

The depth of the examinations were often increased to meet Bradbury’s sexual needs, not any medical requirement, the court heard. 

One said in a statement read to the court: ‘I am now anxious to go to the doctor because I don’t know who I should trust.

‘I have haemophilia and a pain in my side so I know I should go but I feel disgusted and weird.

‘I didn’t think it would happen to me and I feel angry every time I think about it but also relieved it wasn’t just me but we shouldn’t have to go through it.’

Another said he had regular nightmares, felt stressed and lacked confidence.

‘I’d like to see Myles Bradbury and ask him why he did what he did to me,’ he added. 

Bradbury stood open-mouthed as he was led to the cells, and the families of his victims wept.

At the beginning of Bradbury’s sentencing hearing on Friday, prosecutor John Farmer said the defendant had a ‘longstanding, unlawful, sexual interest in boys’.

He added: ‘The defendant, through the trust he had acquired, circumvented the procedures and encourages a number of young patients to see him alone.

‘It was in these circumstance under the guise of legitimate examinations he went entirely beyond the bounds.

‘He took the opportunity of fondling the boy’s genitals and encouraging them to masturbate in his presence and obtain erections for his own personal gratification.

‘On some occasions, when he failed to exclude the parent, he simply carried on behind the curtain behind which the boy had gone to remove his clothes.’

The offences took place over four-and-a-half years, beginning within six months of him taking up his post in 2008 and continuing to the day he was suspended on November 28 last year when the first concerns were raised.

Some 800 families of children cared for by Bradbury were contacted about possible abuse, distracting staff from their main job of caring for the sick. 

At some point, he began using a camera pen in an attempt to gain images of the boys when partially clothed, Mr Farmer added.

Police found 170,425 images on this pen but none of these were classed as indecent.

Mr Farmer explained Bradbury was first arrested in December 2013 after police were alerted by Canadian authorities that he had bought a DVD containing indecent images of children as part of Operation Spade’’.
