Porn star pleads not guilty to rape charges in Los Angeles

Adult film star Ron Jeremy pleaded on Friday pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles courtroom to charges of raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth in incidents from 2014 to 2019.

The 67-year-old adult film star is among the well-known names in the pornography industry. He has acted in no lesser than 2,000 adults films since his debut in the 1970s.

A preliminary hearing was set for August 31 to determine if there is sufficient evidence to allow the case to proceed. Jeremy, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, was ordered to remain jailed in lieu of a $6.6 million bail.

Prosecutors said Jeremy forcibly raped a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood in May 2014. They also accused him of sexually assaulting two women, aged 33 and 46, on separate occasions at a West Hollywood bar in 2017, and forcibly raped one of them, Reuters reports.

In a fourth incident, prosecutors said Jeremy forcibly raped a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July 2019.

On Tuesday, the day charges were filed against Jeremy, he wrote on Twitter that he was innocent of all the allegations.

“I can’t wait to prove my innocence in court! Thank you to everyone for all the support,” he wrote.

If convicted of all the charges, Jeremy faces a possible maximum sentence of 90 years to life in state prison.
