Although Ed Kramer lost an appeal in December to block his extradition to Georgia, he’s found a way to extend the contest one more round. Kramer petitioned Connecticut’s Supreme Court for certification, asking it to review the lower court’s decision.
That document was filed Dec. 19 and alleges that “the extradition documents provided by the demanding state of Georgia were facially insufficient, where those documents do not state an express finding of ‘probable cause,’ but instead are based on ‘sufficient cause.'”
Filed by attorney Susan M. Hankins, it posits that the appellate court erred in deeming Kramer a fugitive in the first place.
Due to Kramer’s “medical issues,” it said, “the court in (Gwinnett) accorded the petitioner unilateral control over further proceedings in the demanding state.”
A Connecticut assistant attorney general has filed in opposition, and requested an expedited proceeding.
Dragon*Con founder Kramer is accused of molesting three boys in Gwinnett, GA between 1996 and 2000. He was apprehended in Connecticut in 2011 in circumstances which resulted in his Georgia bond being revoked. The Gwinett County District Attorney has been trying to bring him back ever since.
