Elmo Actor-Accused_Denn.jpg

This Jan. 24, 2011 file photo shows Elmo and puppeteer Kevin Clash of the film "Being Elmo" poses for a portrait in the Fender Music Lodge during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Clash is being sued by a man who claims the entertainer lured him into drug-fueled sex when he was 16. Sheldon Stephens, who's now 24, says he met Kevin Clash at a networking event. He says he was brought by limousine from Pennsylvania to a New York apartment. There, Clash allegedly smoked crystal meth while giving the teenager another recreational drug. Stephens first made the allegations last year, but recanted after failed efforts to reach a settlement. He renewed the accusations in a lawsuit filed Monday, March 18, 2013, in federal court in Pennsylvania. (AP Photo/Victoria Will, file)
