He is also accused of allegedly sexually assaulting two women, ages 33 and 46, on separate occasions at a West Hollywood bar in 2017. The 67-year-old adult film star was charged on June 23 in Los Angeles, California. According to the District Attorney's Office, the prosecutors are recommending bail to be set at $6.6 million.

The porn star veteran, who has over four decades of experience in the adult industry, is nicknamed the 'hedgehog' and has starred in thousands of porn videos and also made some non-adult film appearances. Some years ago, he was also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for Most Appearances in Adult Film.

Adult film star Ron Jeremy has been charged with sexually assaulting four women. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced the charges against Jeremy, 67, today (June 23) and a warrant has been issued for his arrest, according to Consequence of Sound. The alleged assaults took place between 2014 and 2019 and involved four women between the ages of 24 and 46. Jeremy has been charged with eight counts, including forcible rape, forcible penetration and forcible oral copulation. He faces a possible maximum sentence of 90 years to life in prison. Prosecutors are recommending bail to be set at $6.6 million (£5.27 million) and his arraignment is reportedly set for later today. The case is being handled by Deputy District Attorney Paul Thompson, who is also leading the Los Angeles case against Harvey Weinstein. In 2017, Rolling Stone reported that more than a dozen women had come forward accusing the adult film performer of sexual misconduct, including groping, inappropriate touching, and sexual assault. In a statement at the time, he said "these allegations are pure lies or buyers' remorse." Jeremy has previously appeared in more than 2,000 adult movies and has featured in music videos for Moby, Guns N' Roses, Insane Clown Posse and Mercury Rev. American porn star Ron Jeremy has been charged with sexually assaulting four women in Los Angeles in incidents dating back to 2014. Jeremy, 67, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, once one of the world's most well known porn stars, has already been banned from most of the adult entertainment industry's events after a string of women publicly accused him of groping them without their consent. When Rolling Stone reported allegations of sexual misconduct by Jeremy in 2017, he told the magazine he had "never and would never rape anyone." Prosecutors in LA have now accused him of sexually assaulting three women at a bar in West Hollywood between 2017 and 2019 and of raping a 25-year-old woman at her home in the same area in May 2014. The adult entertainer is charged with eight counts of assault, including forcible rape, forcible penetration and forcible oral copulation. If convicted, he faces up to 90 years to life in prison. The charges have been brought by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office, the same office currently pursuing assault charges against disgraced Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein. Jeremy is expected to make his first court appearance in downtown Los Angeles later on Tuesday. Prosecutors say they are seeking to set the porn star's bail at $6.6 million (£5.2 million). Ron Jeremy: adult film star charged with rape and sexual assault of four women The adult film star Ron Jeremy was charged with raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth, Los Angeles county prosecutors said Tuesday. Jeremy, 67, whose real name is Ron Jeremy Hyatt, was 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. If Jeremy is convicted, the charges could lead to a sentence of 90 years in prison. Prosecutors say they will ask for bail of $6.6m. Prosecutors allege Jeremy raped a 25-year-old woman at a West Hollywood home in May 2014, sexually assaulted a 33-year-old woman and a 46-year-old woman in separate incidents at a West Hollywood bar in 2017, and raped a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July of last year. Danny Masterson: That '70s Show actor charged with rapes of three women Read more Another allegation from 2016, was declined by prosecutors because of insufficient evidence. In recent years he has made a career of appearing in more mainstream entertainment, including music videos and reality television shows such as The Surreal Life. The counts make Jeremy the third man to be charged, along with Harvey Weinstein and producer David Guillod, by a task force formed by the Los Angeles district attorney, Jackie Lacey, in 2017 to investigate sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry in the wake of #MeToo. Prosecutors have begun efforts to bring Weinstein to California to face charges of rape and sexual assault. He is being held in a New York prison after being convicted of similar charges earlier this year. On Monday, Guillod, a producer on the 2017 film Atomic Blonde and the 2020 Netflix movie Extraction, was arrested in Santa Barbara county, California, and charged with 11 felonies, most of them rape counts. Guillod's attorney Philip K Cohen said in a statement that "for the past eight years, Mr Guillod has denied these allegations" and an "overwhelming amount of evidence has been collected over the course of this investigation disputing these charges". Los Angeles prosecutors have also charged That '70s Show actor Danny Masterson last week with the rapes of three women, though that investigation preceded the formation of the Hollywood task force. Masterson denied the charges and his attorney said he will be vindicated.
