Elmo accuser and aspiring model, Sheldon Stephens past has come to the surface. The 24 year old from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania has a heavy criminal past that is sure to haunt him wherever he goes. Sheldon has had run in after run in with the law, dating back to 2009. The list includes reckless driving, writing bad checks, and robbery. But the apple does not fall too far from the tree. Sheldon’s mother was charged with attempted murder for trying to stab her husband back in March.
According to TMZ, there may have been a six figure settlement on the table, to end the whole ordeal between Kevin Clash(Elmo) and Stephens and when the statement was issued about him recanting his allegation, it was issued as a favor from his former counsel, Andreozzi & Associate.

Who really knows what has transpired between Clash and Stephens, behind closed doors. But stay tuned. Something tells me there will be alot more twist and turns to this story.
