LOS ANGELES, June 16 (UPI) -- Disgraced former "Sesame Street" puppeteer and producer Kevin Clash won three Daytime Awards in Los Angeles this weekend.

Clash lent his voice to the fuzzy, red monster Elmo for nearly three decades, but resigned last year after several men came forward and said they had sex with him when they were minors. Although no criminal charges have been brought against Clash, several men are suing him for his alleged abusive behavior.

Clash earned a trio of prizes at the Daytime Entertainment Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony Friday at Westin Bonaventure. In addition to his win for outstanding performer in a children's series, he shared trophies for outstanding pre-school children's series and directing in a children's series for his collaboration with the show's creative team.

More Daytime Emmy Awards were being handed out at a second ceremony at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles Sunday night.
