Porn star Ron Jeremy racks up 7 more sex crime charges; now facing 330 years to life in prison if convicted

Los Angeles County prosecutors added more sex crime charges to the docket against Ron Jeremy on Wednesday, the second time this summer they’ve amended the complaint against the 67-year-old porn star.

Jeremy, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, was arraigned on three counts of forcible rape, two counts of forcible oral copulation, and one count each of sexual battery by restraint and assault with intent to commit forcible digital penetration, all of which took place over a 17-year period, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said. As he has to all the previous charges, Jeremy pleaded not guilty.

Jeremy was initially charged with three counts each of forcible rape and forcible penetration by a foreign object and one count each of forcible oral copulation and sexual battery and was arrested in late June. Prosecutors added 20 new charges in August, including lewd conduct with a 15-year-old girl, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
