Myles Bradbury, a British doctor has been sentenced to 22 years in jail over sexual abuse and the admission to 25 offences, including sexual assault, voyeurism, and the possession of over 16,000 indecent images taken with a spy pen, of a number his young cancer patients.
Myles Bradbury committed these acts on over 18 children who have been in his care earlier between 2009 - 2013.
The court heard how Bradbury would isolate his victims, many of whom had illness such as hemophilia, leukemia, or other serious afflictions , and physically examine them without medical requirement, “purely for his own sexual gratification.”
Judge Gareth Hawkesworth who presided over the case told the court; "In many years' experience on the bench, I have never come across a more culpable or 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."
“For a doctor to attack children in this way is one of the worst forms of sexual abuse imaginable,” the judge said, adding, “These boys were all vulnerable and gravely ill. In all my years on the bench, I have never come across such a grotesque betrayal of your Hippocratic oath.”
