According to reports, adult film legend Ron Jeremy has been indicted on 30 new sexual assault charges stemming from accusations by 21 different women.
Jeremy appeared in court on Wednesday, where he was arraigned on the new charges that allege he molested girls as young as 15, dating back to 1996. Per PageSix, Jeremy faces “12 counts of forcible rape, seven counts of forcible oral copulation, six counts of sexual battery by restraint, four counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object, two counts of sexual penetration of an unconscious or asleep person, and one count each of lewd act upon a child under the age of 15, sodomy by use of force and assault with intent to commit rape.”
“Far too often survivors of sexual assault suffer in isolation,” said LA County District Attorney George Gascon. “We must ensure that survivors have all options available to help with recovery, including trauma-informed services for hearing and support to report such crimes.”
Jeremy has been jailed since June of last year and is scheduled to appear back in court on Oct 12.
