Why does 'Elmo' get a free pass?

Kevin Clash, or the voice of Elmo, is off the hook for sexual abuse now that the accuser recanted his claim. Sure, the damage is done, but already people are saying that it's OK because the victim was 18-years-old at the time, not the previously reported 16-years-old.

Wait? So what about Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison. He married her when she was only 16 and is still getting tons grief. How are the two different? Does Doug need a puppet?
