Dragon Con co-founder Edward Kramer pleaded guilty Monday to three counts of child molestation for allegations dating back to 1987, 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, according to WSB Radio.
