For instance, the statute of limitations for sexual assault in the state of Nevada was only FOUR YEARS, one of the lowest in the country!

Bill Cosby's team isn't taking any chances on this next accuser!

Last month, we reported on a 24-year-old woman named Chloe Goins, who claimed the comedian sexually assaulted her at a Playboy Mansion party in 2008. She was 18 at the time of the alleged attack.

On Wednesday, Ms. Goins talked to the LAPD to give details on the alleged assault that evening — a formal police report, if you will.

The thing is, Chloe's case could possibly go through because it may fall within the six-year statute of limitations for sexual assault in the state of California! Out of all the women to come forward so far, this is the first instance within the time constraints.

Chloe's attorney said she's the only accuser who:

Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash's Molestation Suits Thrown Out Due To Statute Of Limitations!

Filed under: Legal MattersSesame Street

It looks like he’s safe!

Kevin Clash — the man responsible for voicing Sesame Street favorite Elmo — has lucked out.

It is being reported that a judge of the New York federal courts has thrown out lawsuits filed against Kevin by Cecil Singleton, Kevin Kiadii, and a third individual on the basis that the cases exist outside the statute of limitations.

The three accusers had filed against Kevin, claiming that they had been molested as children by the Elmo puppeteer.

Though this doesn't prove that Kevin is innocent of the alleged crimes, we do hope that the accusations were, in fact, false.
