JonBenet : Karr Not Charged - Book, Movie Sold

John Karr's family says he couldn't have been at the scene of the crime when JonBenet Ramsey was killed in Colorado nearly a decade ago.

His father says Karr was with the family in Georgia during Christmas of 1996 - and thousands of miles away from where the six-year-old beauty queen was killed the day after Christmas.

A lawyer for Karr's relatives told reporters, a photo shows Karr's young sons during the family's Christmas dinner in Atlanta.

He says the family is sure that if the three boys were there, Karr would have been with them. Karr, however, is not pictured.

Karr's second wife has already told authorities that she and Karr were together for the holidays that year, though her attorney admits she can't be "absolutely certain."

But there are new accusations from John Karr's first wife, who was just 13 when they married.

Quientana Ray says Karr used to tell her about fantasies he had about little girls. She also says he was controlling.

Ray says she was drugged and that "things were done" to her without her knowing. She didn't elaborate.

Ray's parents said they discovered letters Karr wrote to their daughter that were signed "SBTC." Those are the same initials found on a ransom note left in the Ramsey home.

One of his lawyers says Karr "marches to the beat of a different drummer."

Karr has agreed not to fight extradition to Colorado, although he is said to be upset over having to appear in public wearing an orange jail jumpsuit.

From his police custody appearances last week in Thailand, to his media-swarm return to the US over the weekend, he wore street clothes and wasn't even handcuffed. But now back in the US, it's been jail attire.

In a Los Angeles court Tuesday, Karr also wore handcuffs attached to a chain around his waist.

He waived extradition to Boulder, Colorado, but officials give no hint at all on when he'll be transferred.

The district attorney stresses that, even though the arrest warrant lists crimes ranging from kidnapping to murder, those are only possible charges. For now, Karr hasn't been charged with anything.

His father and brother are hoping to get a big-name lawyer to defend him, so they've hired an actor-turned-author to help them find one.

Larry Garrison, who's based in Los Angeles, says he's already secured the movie and book rights for the Karr family's story.

Garrison says he hasn't gotten a cent - only a promise of a percentage to come from any profit. And he says the Karr family wants the money to go to Karr's defense, and a college fund for his kids.
