Kramer Hearing Coming August 26

Ed Kramer will have a double hearing on Monday, August 26. Judge Karen Beyers will consider District Attorney Danny Porter’s motion to schedule a trial date to deal with child molestation charges filed against Kramer over 13 years ago.

The hearing will also address a habeas corpus complaint filed last month by Kramer and his attorneys. The Gwinnett Daily Post explains —

Kramer has been in the Gwinnett County jail since he was extradited from Milford, Conn., in January. In his habeas corpus complaint, he and attorney Brian Steel argued that the bond conditions implemented upon his release from house arrest in 2008 — namely, that he not have unsupervised contact with anyone under 16 — were no longer valid because of a 2009 modification.

The hearing comes four days before the start of this year’s Dragon*Con, the convention he helped found.
