Edward Kramer Arrested on Child Endangerment Charges

Dragon*Con founder Edward Kramer was arrested on September 13, 2011 after being discovered alone with a 14-year-old boy in a motel room in Connecticut. Milford Police have charged Kramer with misdemeanor reckless endangerment of a child, according to defense attorney Edwin Marger. Kramer has claimed to be too ill to stand trial for multiple previous charges of child molestation and aggravated child molestation, but witnesses in Connecticut reported seeing Kramer walking on trails without his cane, wheelchair, or breathing apparatus.

Dragon*Con Chairman Pat Henry has publicly distanced Dragon*Con via an announcement on Facebook, saying that Kramer resigned from the convention in 2000 and has had no role in convention activities since then.
