Ed Kramer's Long Wait for Justice

Dark Echo points out that anthologist and former VP of the Horror Writers of America, Ed Kramer, remains under house arrest in Georgia after seven years, charged with aggravated child molestation but never tried (and suffering from brain damage after an attack by a jail guard).

Seven years is a long time to wait for a trial, especially considering Georgia law presumes a violation of speedy trial rights for delays of over eight months between indictment and trial [Scandrett v. State, 279 Ga. 632 (2005)].
