Kramer in Jail Awaiting Extradition Hearing

Ed Kramer apparently is back in jail at this writing, judging by information available on State of Connecticut Judicial Branch and Department of Correction websites.

Although Kramer reportedly had been been released from custody after arranging a $50,000 bond for the local charge of “risk of injury to child,” records indicate he was re-arrested on September 28. Listed as the charge is “extradition arrest by warrant,” which is a governor’s warrant, as provided by Connecticut statute under the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act:

Sec. 54-158. Subject to the provisions of this chapter, the provisions of the Constitution of the United States controlling, and any and all acts of Congress enacted in pursuance thereof, it is the duty of the Governor of this state to have arrested and delivered up to the executive authority of any other state of the United States any person charged in that state with treason, felony or other crime, who has fled from justice and is found in this state. Governor’s duty to arrest and deliver up fugitive.

Kramer is presently being held in the Bridgeport (CT) Correctional Center. His public defender told the media Kramer will fight extradition. His next court date is November 23.
