Shortly after it was announced that actor Danny Masterson was being charged with three counts of rape by Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, the news comes that adult film star Ron Jeremy has been “charged with forcibly raping three women and sexually assaulting another in separate incidents dating back to 2014.”
According to the DA’s website, Jeremy, full name Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, is accused by prosecutors of forcibly raping a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood in 2014. In further charges, Jeremy allegedly sexually assaulted two women, ages 33 and 46, on separate occasions at a West Hollywood bar in 2017.
In addition, the 67-year-old is also charged with forcibly raping a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July 2019.
Charges stemming from a 2016 case were denied, due to insufficient evidence.
Jeremy is known as one of the most famous porn stars in the US. He was ranked at No. 1 in AVN’s “50 Top Porn Stars of All Time.” He is also recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records for “Most Appearances in Adult Films.” He has appeared in over 2000 films.
