Kevin Clash Faces Criminal Charges in Fourth Lawsuit

Kevin Clash arrives at the 34th Kennedy Center Honors held at the Kennedy Center Hall of States on December 4, 2011 in Washington, DC.

A fourth person has accused former Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash of sexually abusing a minor. The new allegations could have Clash facing criminal charges for the first time in this series of events. The suit alleges that Clash flew the accuser, aged 16 or 17 at the time, from Miami to New York in 1996, which could qualify as "transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity."
