Former adult film star Ron Jeremy who has been in jail for over a year was arraigned on new charges in Los Angeles County Court on Wednesday.
The 68-year-old has over 2500 performer credits as an adult film star but also managed to cross over to mainstream television and film work since the 80’s thus racking up a substantial net worth in the process.
The charges have been adding up as the iconic adult film star sat in jail since June last year.
He has been indicted on 33 counts of rape and sexual assault, which includes molesting a minor.
According to the unsealed indictment, Jeremy has been charged with “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 15, sodomy by use of force and assault with intent to commit rape.”
Jeremy has pled not guilty to all charges and is scheduled to return to court on October 12.
