Superior Court Judge William C. Carpenter Jr. will deliver a verdict in the trial of former Rehoboth pediatrician Earl Bradley on Thursday, June 23, he announced this morning.

Bradley'is charged with 24 felonies related to the alleged abuse and rape of children in his care at BayBees Pediatrics. Last month, he waived his right to a jury trial, allowing Carpenter to decide a verdict himself. The trial lasted just one day, on June 7, and his defense neither called witnesses nor cross-examined the testimony of those the prosecution called.

In a two-paragraph lettter sent out by e-mail on the morning of June 21, Carpenter said he would announce the verdict in the Sussex County Courthouse at 3 p.m. Thursday.
