Connecticut authorities released DragonCon founder Ed Kramer on a $250K bond on October 20.
Kramer was arrested last month in Milford, CT after police reportedly found him alone in a motel room with a 14-year-old boy. This led a Georgia judge to rule Kramer had violated a bond posted in that state, where Kramer has been facing child molestation charges since 2000. The judge has issued a bench warrant for his arrest.
The Gwinnett County District Attorney has been working to have Kramer extradited from Connecticut. The Gwinnett Daily Post reports:
Kramer was scheduled for a court appearance last week, Milford officials said. He faces up to 10 years in prison on a felony charge of risk of injury to a minor, Connecticut law states.
Porter said he wasn’t sure when Kramer’s next hearing in Connecticut is scheduled or where he went after the monthlong jail stint. A prosecutor in Connecticut handling the Kramer case did not return a call for comment Thursday [October 20].
“We’re working on extradition,” Porter said. “I don’t know where (Kramer) is.”
Porter has filed paperwork with the Georgia Governor’s Office to extradite Kramer, pending his prosecution in the Connecticut case.
