On Monday, finally docketed as the day jury selection was to begin, Kramer actually expedited the legal process by pleading guilty to three counts of felony child molestation in Gwinnett County Superior Court. In exchange, the DragonCon co-founder was sentenced to five years house arrest for each count, to be served concurrently.
As his long-postponed trial date on child molestation charges approaches, Ed Kramer and DragonCon—the sci-fi convention he co-founded more than a quarter-century ago—have now severed all ties. As of noon today, according to DragonCon spokesman Greg Euston, an out-of-court settlement between Kramer and DragonCon went into effect in which DragonCon will pay Kramer for the shares he still held in the company—shares that entitled him to dividends and which prompted some longtime attendees to boycott the convention.
