Ron Jeremy was a teacher from Queens, New York, who became a porn star in the ’70s after a girlfriend sent nude photos of him to Playgirl.
Forty-odd years and over 2000 films later he’s being charged with over 30 sexual assaults and facing a 330-year jail sentence. Seven new counts were filed against Jeremy this week by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. Jeremy was arrested on four counts of rape and sexual assault in June this year, and since then the charges have been piling. His attorney, Stuart Goldfarb, says Jeremy is innocent. ‘He doesn’t deny being with some of these women, but it was consensual.’
Jeremy now faces 11 counts of rape, eight counts of sexual battery by restraint, six counts of forcible oral copulation, five counts of forcible penetration by a foreign object, and one count each of sodomy, assault with intent to commit rape, assault with intent to commit forcible digital penetration, penetration by a foreign object on an unconscious or sleeping victim and lewd conduct with a 15-year-old girl. The incidents involve 23 victims and span from 1996 to 2020. Jeremy’s bail is set at $6.6 M.
I am innocent of all charges. I can’t wait to prove my innocence in court! Thank you to everyone for all the support.
