    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - The man who founded DragonCon is in trouble with the law again, just months after getting off house arrest. 

    Ed Kramer, a convicted child molester, is now accused of taking a picture of a 7-year-old in a doctor's office.

    Channel 2 Gwinnett County bureau chief Tony Thomas broke news of the arrest on Twitter Tuesday night.

    Thomas spoke with Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter, who said he’s not surprised Kramer has been arrested again. 

    “It's the case that never ends,” Porter said. “I knew it was never going to end.”

    Kramer was sentenced years ago, but Porter has kept the files against Kramer nearby. 

    In the past, Kramer was sentenced to five years of house arrest on three counts of child molestation. He was released in December.

    On Friday, Lawrenceville police said Kramer was spotted at a doctor’s office taking pictures of a 7-year-old boy, which is illegal since he's a convicted sex offender. 

    Body camera video from Tuesday show how police tracked Kramer down in the lobby of Gwinnett Medical Center and arrested him. 

    Authorities are now trying to revoke his probation and a judge could resentence him on his original conviction. He could face up to 55 years in prison.

    Porter said police found several computers and storage devices in Kramer’s Duluth home and are still going through them. 

    “Any indication there are other instances out there?” Thomas asked Porter. 

    “There isn't at this time,” Porter said. “I think once we get into a forensic analysis of the computers and the storage media, there may be something there.”

    Kramer will be back in court Thursday as authorities try to quickly schedule a probation revocation hearing to get him moved into state custody.
