FORMER VOICE OF ELMO SUED
NEW YORK (AP) -- A man who took back his allegations of sex abuse by the former voice of Elmo is now suing him. Sheldon Stephens says Kevin Clash lured him into taking drugs and having sex when he was 16. Stephens is 24 now. He says he was “taken advantage of by someone a lot older, and manipulated.” Clash’s attorney says his client denies the charges. He points out that Stephens admitted he was an adult when they had consensual sex.
