Children adopted by Dr. Philip J. Broeckel Sr and Julie Broeckel

Dr Broeckel Sr. sexually abused at least 4 of his adopted children including some from Mexico. His now ex-wife Julie Barryman was not charged and was unaware of the abuse

Broeckel and his second wife, Julie, had two children of their own, adopted several others, became guardians for others and, over a period of about five years, took in numerous orphans, runaways and abandoned kids. From 15 to 20 children at a given time lived under his roof; so many that the family eventually began traveling around in a remodeled school bus.

According to one of the adopted children of Philip Broeckel the allegations were false (see: Dr Philip Broeckel was framed by Julie Berryman)
