Ed Kramer was denied bail by an Atlanta judge who noted that his past actions indicated that he was a flight risk. Kramer, who founded Dragon*Con, was arrested in 2000 on charges of child molestation. Kramer was previously free on bond, but Judge Karen E. Beyers noted that he had not abided by the rules of his bond, including staying away from children and checking in on a traceable landline weekly.
Nancy A. Collins and others have called for a boycott of Dragon*Con, the Atlanta multi-media convention held over Labor Day weekend, due to shareholder Ed Kramer receiving a reported annual dividend from the company of more than $150,000. Kramer, a founder of the convention, was first arrested in 2000 on child molestation charges which have yet to come to trial.
Author and Dragon*Con founder Ed Kramer was arrested in Milford, CT and charged him with misdemeanor reckless endangerment of a child after he was found staying in a hotel with a fourteen year old boy. Kramer was in violation of the conditions of his bond from a previous arrest on allegations of child molestation, first made in 2000. Kramer’s bond has been revoked and he faces extradition to Georgia.
