Sesame Street's former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash will not be charged in any of the three sexual abuse lawsuits leveled at him; a New York judge ruled that the statute of limitations on the accusations has run out. (Also, recall that one accuser quickly recanted, with lawyers deeming the tie between the plaintiff and Clash a consensual relationship between adults.) Clash's lawyer says the Emmy winner is happy to put "these spurious claims behind him, so that Kevin can go about the business of reclaiming his personal life and his professional standing."
