Elmo cleared of child molestation

The man who said he was underage when he had a sexual relationship with "Sesame Street" puppeteer Kevin Clash has now recanted that claim, the law firm representing him said on Tuesday.

The Pennsylvania law firm Andreozzi & Associates issued a statement reading, "This office represented the 23-year-old man who was the subject of many media reports regarding Kevin Clash. He wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship. He will have no further comment on the matter."
Read the rest here.

Really? No further comment? You falsely accuse someone of being a child molester and you think that this statement covers your obligations? They need to revive the old legal concept of criminal slander and libel. There are somethings that a civil case doesn't cover. And I'd guess this dirtbag probably couldn't pay court costs much less anything approaching a fair award of damages.

To make matters worse, it seems that the accused man is probably not going to be reinstated in his job.

That's the trouble with mud. Lord have mercy.
