On June 23, 2020, adult film star Ron Jeremy was arrested and charged with the forcible rapes of multiple women, dating back to 2014.  In addition to three charges of forcible rape, Jeremy has also been charged with 1 count of forcible penetration by an object, 1 count of forced oral copulation, and 1 count of sexual battery.

During the course of a two-year investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, at least four women told investigators that they were the victims of unwanted sexual contact by Jeremy.

Jeremy stands accused of forcibly raping a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood in May 2014.  He also is charged with allegedly sexually assaulting two women, ages 33 and 46, on separate occasions at a West Hollywood bar in 2017, as well as forcibly raping a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July 2019.

The 67-year-old Jeremy is currently in custody; his arraignment has been postponed until Friday.  His bail is expected to be set at $6.6 million, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney.

If convicted of all of the charges, Jeremy faces up to 90 years in prison.

He had previously been investigated for the rape of a fifth woman in 2016, but prosecutors declined to charge him at the time.  Rolling Stone previously reported on the allegation during the height of the #metoo movement.
