Voice of Elmo

Underage Sex Accusers

Have NO RIGHT To Sue Me

Kevin Clash
-- the former voice of Elmo on "Sesame Street" -- says the three men who accused him of sexually abusing them as minors have no case against him ... because too much time has passed since the alleged abuse.

Clash has just filed a motion to dismiss the three lawsuits filed against him by Cecil Singleton and two other unidentified men.

According to Clash, the statute of limitations on the sexually-motivated crimes he's accused of committing is six years -- and the crimes in each instance allegedly occurred more than ten years ago.

As we reported, Clash has been sued by the three men -- each of whom claims Clash engaged in sexual activity with them when they were minors, causing them mental and psychological damage.

The men claim they only recently became "aware" of the damage that was done -- which is why it took them so long to sue -- but Clash says that's BS. 

Clash wants the judge to toss out all three lawsuits asap.

People need to learn te definition of a pedophile... In order to be a pedophile the person involved needs to be prepubescent. He is not a pedophile. Not condoning what he did bc it was very wrong, and I certainly don't think there should be a statute of limitations on any kind of abuse! I also don't really trust the three suing him....

I don't think there are any statutes of limitation on sexual abuse of a minor. Nice try, you dirty pedophile.

So the reason is because too much time has passed and not because you didn't do it. Reminds me of when the Catholic Bishops meet in Vatican to decide what to do about priests molesting boys. It took them a week to come up with "It is against the churches policy for preists to molest boys". A week and that is what they came up with. Makes you wonder what the objections were that made it take so long?
