Will Dragon Con co-founder Ed Kramer spend the rest of his life behind bars?
As Gwinnett District Attorney Danny Porter continues to look into allegations that he violated terms of his plea agreement on child molestation charges, he says it would be a balancing act whether or not to send him back to prison.
Porter’s office was notified last week that Kramer has become active recently on Twitter, and one his followers is a 14-year-old girl. Under terms of his agreement reached in December, he is to have no contact directly or indirectly with minors under age 16.
Right now he is serving 34 months under house arrest, but a violation could send him to prison to serve out a 60 year prison sentence.
“If the evidence supports it, I’m going to send him back to jail,” Porter tells WSB’s Sandra Parrish. “If he was following somebody, I think it probably could be a violation; if he was being followed, it would probably not.”
Kramer apparently changed his privacy settings when word of the account got out.
Porter calls Kramer a difficult inmate and believes if he went into the state prison system, he would be paroled out fairly quickly.
“Then we’ll lose supervision, whereas right now we know where he is all the time,” he says.
Porter predicted in December that it would not take long for Kramer to violate the agreement.
“Sixty to 120 days is what I think I said, and we’re pretty close.”
