Porn star Ron Jeremy charged with sexually assaulting 4 women, faces 90 years in prison

Porn star Ron Jeremy has been hit with sexual assault charges.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office on Tuesday announced that Jeremy has been charged with sexually assaulting four women in incidents from 2014 through 2019, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Prosecutors accused Jeremy of forcibly raping a woman at a West Hollywood home in 2014, sexually assaulting two women at a West Hollywood bar in 2017, and forcibly raping a woman at that West Hollywood bar in 2019. He was charged with 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, prosecutors said.

Jeremy had previously been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women, per Rolling Stone. He has denied the allegations, telling Rolling Stone in 2017, "These allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse. I have never and would never rape anyone." Jeremy faces up to 90 years in prison if convicted on the charges.
