Adult film star Ron Jeremy faces charges of rape and sexual assault dating from 1996 to 2020, authorities allege.
Jeremy, whose legal name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, was investigated and charged by a district attorney’s task force formed to take on sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry as the #MeToo era gained momentum in late 2017.
He has been held in jail since his arrest in June 2020.
Jeremy has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
An email seeking comment from his attorney, Stuart Goldfarb, was not returned. But Golfarb has said he is “innocent of all the charges” and they would prove it.
Below is a timeline of the allegations.
