Former NFL quarterback Erik Kramer's ex-wife Cortney Baird has been charged with 12 felonies, including counts of elder abuse, identity theft and forgery. She came back into his life after his failed suicide attempt.
Kramer attempted suicide back in 2015 after becoming depressed following the deaths of his son and mother. He shot himself in the head and survived, leaving him with brain injuries.
As Kramer was recovering from his suicide attempt, Baird came back into his life, married him and allegedly took advantage of him.
From NY Post:
In total, Kramer estimates that he lost $600,000 between money Baird spent and his legal fees. In February of this year, Baird was charged with 12 felonies, including counts of elder abuse, identity theft and forgery.
Kramer said he wants Baird to stand trial, and hopes his nightmare serves as a warning to other former NFLers with brain impairments.
You know what they say, there's a special place for these kinds of people...
