Dragon Con Co-Founder Pleads Guilty

Dragon Con co-founder Edward Kramer pleaded guilty Monday to three counts of child molestation for allegations dating back to 1996, according to reports.

Three separate teens — two of them brothers — accused the 52-year-old Kramer of sexually abusing them. After more than a dozen years and numerous delays, the trial that was to begin Monday ended before it started with Kramer’s plea, AM 750 and 95.5 FM WSB News/Talk Radio is reporting.

In exchange for Kramer’s guilty pleas to three counts of child molestation, prosecutors are nullifying three counts of aggravated child molestation.

As a first-time offender, he was sentenced to five years for each count to run concurrently. Kramer will serve the remaining 34 months of his 5-year sentence on house arrest, WSB Radio reports. He has already served 26 months.

He must also pay each of the three victims $100,000 in restitution and register as a sex offender, according to WSB Radio.

The abrupt end to Kramer’s saga with the legal system seems to be par for the course, based on the history of the case.

In October 2000, Kramer was accused of sodomizing the younger of two brothers at the science fiction enthusiast’s Duluth home. Weeks later, the older of the brothers came forward with his own set of allegations.

And just before he was due to go to trial in 2003, a third accuser claimed Kramer molested him in 1996.
