Pediatrician convicted of raping patients loses appeal

The judge dismissed Earl Bradley s latest appeal on procedural grounds on Thursday. The judge said there s no new evidence to suggest Bradley is innocent, or that there is any new rule of constitutional law that might be applied retroactively to his case.

The judge also noted it is difficult for Bradley to argue that he is innocent, given that he videotaped the criminal acts for which he was convicted.
