The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office brought 20 additional counts of sexual assault charges against former adult film star Ron Jeremy today.
Sexual assault charges against Jeremy dating back to 2004 have finally caught up with the man who assaulted 28 women. Their ages range from 15 to 54 years old. According to the District Attorney’s office, his most recent charges include six counts of sexual battery by restraint, five counts of forcible rape, three counts of forcible oral copulation, two counts of forcible penetration by a foreign object, one count of sodomy, one count of assault with intent to commit rape, one count of penetration by a foreign object on an unconscious or sleeping victim and one count of lewd conduct with a 15-year-old girl.
The 67-year-old-man plead not guilty back in June to three counts each of forcible rape and forcible penetration by a foreign object, as well as one count each of forcible oral copulation and sexual battery. Jeremy later took to Twitter to respond to the allegation in a tweet saying, “I am innocent of all charges. I can’t wait to prove my innocence in court! Thank you to everyone for all the support. The tweet has been receiving attention with over a thousand likes and 276 retweets. Many of his followers remain supportive through this case, while others are calling for justice.
These incidents are separate and date back to 2014. He was later found guilty of these charges as well.
Jeremy’s arraignment will take place later today. If convicted, Ron Jeremy could face up to 250 years to life in prison for all 28 assaults.
