Porn star Ron Jeremy is charged with raping three women and sexually assaulting another 

Porn star Ron Jeremy (pictured), is reportedly being investigated on new sexual assault accusations

Porn star Ron Jeremy was on Tuesday charged with raping three women and sexually assaulting another. 

Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said the adult movie star is accused of forcibly raping a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood in May 2014. 

He then allegedly sexually assaulted two women, ages 33 and 46, on separate occasions at a West Hollywood bar in 2017.

The porn star, full name Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, also is accused of forcibly raping a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July 2019.

The District Attorney’s Office said it also declined a case against Hyatt ‘due to insufficient evidence stemming from an incident in 2016’.

In a statement they said: ‘Prosecutors are recommending bail at $6.6 million.’

He faces a possible maximum sentence of 90 years to life in state prison in convicted.

Since at least 2017,  women have come forward to allege the 40-year porn veteran groped them without their consent, leading to Jeremy being banned from most of the adult industry’s high-profile events.

In September 2017, Jeremy was accused of inappropriately touching Kristin Brodie who asked him to sign her breast at a Washington state radio station. 

At the time, Brodie told the Daily Beast: ‘Our Rock Girl uniforms are just torn up T-shirts. There’s not a lot of coverage so you can see the top part of your chest. There’s no need to move the collar but that’s what he did to all three of us. 

 

Jeremy, who did not achieve fame based on his good looks and earned the nickname The Hedgehog due to his hirsute, stringy hair and unkempt mustache, recently made headlines for trying to save his childhood tree in Queens, New York

‘He pulled our shirts open and reached inside our bras, all the way to the bottom and squeezed hard almost pulling [our breasts] out of our bra, and for me it felt like he was squeezing an udder or appraising something. It was very unpleasant.

‘I was nervous… but I was a Rock Girl and knew I was being watched, so with that knowledge I tried to look unbothered and unfazed even though I was not.’ 

Following that incident, Jeremy was told he would not face charges over the allegations.   

Police interviewed witnesses and reviewed surveillance videos but the Tacoma City Attorney’s Office decided not to press charges. 

In 2017, a prominent adult film actress, who wished to remain anonymous, also accused Jeremy of sexually assaulting her. 

‘The first time I met him on set he put his fingers in my pu**y unexpectedly. I was brand new, outside smoking a cigarette and he comes out just being Ron Jeremy. All of a sudden he’s fingering me, and I’m like, whoa,’ the woman told Daily Beast. 

‘He was just there as an extra on set, he wasn’t even there performing. We joke about it—there’s Ron, stay five feet away from him because he does that. 

‘We don’t think anything of it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t even register. It’s like, oh great, another girl got groped by Ron Jeremy, join the club.’

Sydney Leathers, who is also an adult film actress and writer, also voiced her concerns over how much praise Jeremy recently received online. 

‘I’m personally happy Ron Jeremy has a tree to focus his attention on instead of groping women,’ Leathers told the news outlet. 

Jeremy, who earned the nickname The Hedgehog due to his hirsute, stringy hair and unkempt mustache, recently made headlines for trying to save his childhood tree in Queens, New York.

The 67-year-old tweeted a picture of himself hugging a tree on May 16 with the caption: ‘I need your help. help me save my tree.’

According Jeremy, the tree was planted by his father on the day he was born.

‘Please let Con Edison know that they cannot tear down this tree,’ Jeremy pleaded with his more than 109,000 followers. 

In response, Con Edison tweeted: ‘Hi Ron, thanks for reaching out to us; we understand your concern. However, we are not involved with this tree’s pruning or removal job. Please reach out to NYC Parks department for more information.’

A few days later, Jeremy shared a video story of his tree, tweeting: ‘I’ve been fighting to save my tree over and over it’s whole life. Sadly it has run its course and needs to be torn down tomorrow. It is not City’s fault. The tree is old.’

And though several of his followers view Jeremy as a sort of hometown hero, the headlines about his tree angered others. Porn star, Janice Griffith, asked on Twitter: 'Did Ron tweet this in between bouts of sexually harassing people?'

‘It’s truly horrifying for me to see men who are predators glamorized,’ porn actress, Tasha Reign told the Daily Beast. 

Reign added: ‘Men who commit these crimes of assault should be punished for their actions but unfortunately, with our current legal system, it’s extremely challenging to prove sex crimes. That needs to change.’

Porn star, Janice Griffith, asked on Twitter: ‘Did Ron tweet this in between bouts of sexually harassing people? He’s banned from almost all industry events for groping people without consent.’
