Kramer released in Conn. on $250k bond

LAWRENVCEVILLE -- DragonCon founder and Gwinnett child molestation suspect Ed Kramer is again a free man.

Kramer was arrested last month in Milford, Conn. after police reportedly found him alone in a motel room with a 14-year-old boy, a violation of his bond in Gwinnett.

Gwinnett District Attorney Danny Porter said Thursday that Kramer met the requirements of a $250,000 bond in Connecticut and has been released from custody.

The State of Connecticut mandates the fee for bail bonds over $5,000 to be 7 percent of the total bond.

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.

"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.

The boy in question was in Connecticut acting in a low-budget horror movie. Witnesses told Porter that Kramer had referred to himself as the boy's guardian.

Porter has said he's prepared to summon witnesses and try Kramer in Gwinnett on multiple charges of child molestation in a matter of weeks. Kramer was initially arrested in 2000.

Kramer faces up to 60 years in prison, based on accusations by three teenage boys who told authorities he'd coerced them into sex.

A Gwinnett judge revoked Kramer's bond following his arrest this month. A bench warrant for Kramer's arrest was issued in Gwinnett on Sept. 21.

Tell us Danny Porter why he hasn't been prosecuted if he was arrested in 2000? This is a joke. Eleven years
