LEWES, Del. - More than a month after the arrest of pediatrician Earl Bradley, a Lewes woman is calling for changes to the accused doctor's office so the community can heal.

Bradley's office, Baybee's Pediatrics, is easy to spot from Route 1 in Lewes. Bradley, 56, used toys, cars and decorations to cover his office and surrounding yard. In December, Bradley was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting or raping several of his patients. Court documents said Bradley videotaped some of the alleged acts on some victims no older than 6-months.

Margaret Drury frequently stands outside Bradley's office on Route 1 with a sign about an hour or two a day. She said the building can stay, but Bradley's toys and decorations need to go.

"I'm saddened," Drury said. "I'm here because I want people to come together in this community and be aware that this does go on."

Drury said she is a mother and former nurse who is disgusted by what police say may have happened inside. She also claimed responsibility for hanging black ribbons around the outside of the office in what she calls a sign of grief.

One of Drury's signs asks onlookers to pressure the Delaware Attorney General's Office to remove the items. Last week, Attorney General Beau Biden announced plans by the Justice Department to freeze Bradley's assets through a civil lawsuit.

Jason Miller, a spokesman for the Department of Justice, said the lawsuit puts a lien on Bradley's property but does not give the state the authority to remove any items.

Meanwhile, a Georgetown community group is conducting a massive outreach campaign to make sure Bradley's Hispanic patients don't get overlooked.

La Esperanza said it is notifying clients of the case and directing parents of former patients to authorities. The director said there is concern that the language barrier will prevent potential victims from coming forward. As part of its outreach, the center has a bilingual translator and can provide transportation services to affected families.
