Adult film actor Ron Jeremy has been charged with raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth. On Friday, Jeremy — full name Ronald Jeremy Hyatt — pleaded not guilty in Los Angeles Superior Court to three counts each of forcible rape and forcible penetration by a foreign object, one count each of forcible oral copulation, and sexual battery. If convicted he reportedly faces 90 years to life in California state prison, and could be required to register as a sex offender.
Jeremy is the third man to be charged with sexual assault by a Hollywood task force established in 2017 by Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey. The task force was formed to investigate sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry, and previously charged Harvey Weinstein and producer David Guillod.
Prosecutors allege Jeremy raped a 25-year-old woman in May 2014, sexually assaulted a 33-year-old woman and a 46-year-old woman in separate incidents in 2017, and raped a 30-year-old woman in July of 2019. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department believes there are several additional alleged victims of Jeremy’s sexual assault. Investigators are asking anyone with information to please step forward.
Local authorities are distributing a new flyer with Jeremy’s mugshot and seeking the public’s help in identifying any additional survivors. Investigators are encouraging anyone with pertinent information related to an incident — regardless of how long ago it occurred — to come forward and disclose as soon as possible.
