Although it's been thirteen years since Kramer had anything to do with the organization and running of Dragon Con, his position as co-founder meant that he has for years been legally entitled to 34 percent of the con's profits. That income may have bankrolled Kramer's convoluted attempts to evade trial for pedophilia over the past 13 years, during which time he allegedly put other children at risk.

. . .

Kramer, formerly a respected science fiction editor and program director of Atlanta's drug council, was arrested on multiple charges of pedophilia in 2000,
(Note: the actual charges were for child molestation. Pedophilia isn't usually a legal term -Jacob) at which point he resigned from his longstanding position on Dragon Con's Board of Directors.

Kramer then began a cat-and-mouse game of court date evasion, alleging illness, medical inability to stand trial, and other procedural delays which lasted over a decade and culminated in his being found by police in a motel with a 14-year-old boy in 2011. Currently he awaits trial in Gwinnett County, Ga., after being denied bond in April. Prosecutors have claimed he's "manipulating the system."

It makes you wish there were stricter procedures for child abusers. If only everyone knew the incredible pain they cause.

So he got caught again with another kid, while evading trial. Makes me wonder how many he got between 2000 and 2011, or since. System failure again, sad.
