Adult film star Ron Jeremy pleaded not guilty Friday in Los Angeles to charges of raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth woman.
ABC news reports the 67-year-old has been 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, the district attorney’s office said Tuesday.
Jeremy, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, wore an orange jail jumpsuit and face mask inside a glass enclosure where in-custody defendants appear in court.
He was being held in country jail on a bail of $6.6 million, which the judge declined to reduce Friday.
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.
