porn-star-ron-jeremy-declared-mentally-incompetent

A Los Angeles judge on Tuesday declared that porn performer Ron Jeremy is mentally incompetent to stand trial on dozens of rape and sexual assault counts.

Superior Court Judge Ronald S. Harris said in a hearing that after reviewing reports from both prosecutors and Jeremy’s defense that he is in “incurable neurocognitive decline” from which he is unlikely to recover.

Prosecutors asked that he be periodically reevaluated.

A hearing on placing the 69-year-old Jeremy, whose legal name is Ronald Hyatt, in a state hospital will be held next month.

Jeremy pleaded not guilty after a grand jury indicted him on 34 counts of sexual assault, including 12 counts of rape.

“When he was arrested two years ago I said he would be found innocent of all charges,” Jeremy’s attorney Stuart Goldfarb said in an email. “Two years have passed and with the additional discovery I received I believed he would have have been found innocent. It is unfortunate due to mental condition he will not go to trial and have the the opportunity to clear his name.”

Jeremy, who has remained in jail since his arrest in 2020, did not attend the hearing.

An email seeking comment Tuesday from the District Attorney’s Office was not immediately returned.

Nicknamed “The Hedgehog,” Jeremy has been among the best known and most prolific actors in the porn industry for decades, and became a recognizable pop cultural novelty through reality shows, public appearances and music videos.

He has long been a magnet for seekers of autographs and selfies, which is how he first encountered most of the women and girls aged 15 to 51 he is accused of assaulting between the 1990s and 2019.

According to transcripts of grand jury testimony from the women and girls obtained by The Associated Press, Jeremy would lure them into a small secluded space, often the bathroom of a West Hollywood bar and grill he frequents, trap them and sexually assault them.

The Los Angeles Times first reported that Jeremy would not be going to trial.

The charges stemmed from a district attorney’s task force set up to investigate entertainment industry sexual misconduct after reports about Harvey Weinstein in 2017 made the #metoo movement an international phenomenon.

Jeremy was among a very few men charged in the task force’s work, along with Weinstein himself, who was convicted of rape and sexual assault in December.

Prosecutors are still deciding whether to retry Weinstein on several counts for which his jury was deadlocked. They plan to retry actor Danny Masterson on three rape counts after his jury failed to reach verdicts last month.

Ron Jeremy: why the ex-porn star’s rape trial has collapsed

He was one of the most recognisable names in the porn industry from the 1970s

A judge has ruled that former porn actor Ron Jeremy is mentally incompetent to stand trial, in a case that included rape and sexual assault counts involving 21 women.

The case outlined the allegations that Jeremy committed 34 counts of sexual assault over the past 20 years – 12 of them were rape accusations.

The case has been on the brink of collapsing for several months. Court proceedings in Los Angeles were suspended last year after Jeremy’s lawyer, Stuart Goldfarb, claimed he wasn’t able to recognise him. Earlier this month it was reported that Jeremy had “severe dementia” and could not spell his own name.

The judge said Jeremy, who is now 69-years-old, could not face any charges as he was in a state of “incurable neurocognitive decline”.

Ron Jeremy (legal name Ronald Hyatt), entered the porn industry in the 1970s and featured in numerous titles, soon becoming one of the most recognisable actors in the porn. He’s credited with over 2,000 films.

He has stood accused of sexually assaulting women between the ages of 15 to 51. Prosecutors have claimed that Jeremy assaulted 21 women from 1996.

The alleged attacks took place at bars and nightclubs in Los Angeles and at Jeremy’s home. It wasn’t until he was first charged in June 2020 for raping three women (between 2014 to 2019) that more allegations surfaced. He has remained in prison since.

Jeremy denies all 34 counts of sexual assault against him and has vowed to clear his name, according to The BBC.

In August 2020, Jeremy wrote on Twitter: “I can’t wait to prove my innocence in court! Thank you to everyone for all the support.”

Jeremy’s charges stemmed from an investigation into the sexual misconduct within the entertainment industry, after reports of Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo movement. Jeremy was one of few men charged, along with Weinstein – who was convicted of rape and sexual assault.

Goldfarb, who still represents Jeremy, said: “Two years have passed and with the additional discovery I received I believed he would have been found innocent. It is unfortunate due to mental condition he will not go to trial and have the opportunity to clear his name.”

Greg Risling, a spokesperson for the district attorney’s office, said a hearing to determine Jeremy’s placement will be held on 7 February. The court will make the decision as to where Jeremy will be placed while his criminal case is pending.

Attorney Stuart Goldfarb, who represents Jeremy, had told the court in March 2022 that his client had been unable to recognise him when he visited him in a holding cell before a court hearing.

Actor could be moved into state hospital

A hearing on placing the actor, whose legal name is Ronald Hyatt, in a state hospital will be held next month.

Mr Goldfarb said in an email: “When he was arrested two years ago I said he would be found innocent of all charges.

“Two years have passed and with the additional discovery I received I believed he would have been found innocent. It is unfortunate due to mental condition he will not go to trial and have the opportunity to clear his name.”

The alleged offences took place at nightclubs and bars in the Los Angeles area, during a photo shoot, and at Jeremy’s home, the district attorney’s office said.

The charges stemmed from a district attorney’s task force set up to investigate entertainment industry sexual misconduct after reports about Harvey Weinstein in 2017 and the #metoo movement.

Jeremy was among very few men charged in the task force’s work, along with Weinstein himself, who was convicted of rape and sexual assault in December.

He pleaded not guilty in August 2021.

The alleged offenses took place at night clubs and bars in the Los Angeles area, during a photo shoot, and at Jeremy’s home, the District Attorney’s office said.

Prosecutors said Jeremy, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, raped a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood in May 2014.

They also alleged he sexually assaulted two women, aged 33 and 46, on separate occasions at a West Hollywood bar in 2017, and forcibly raped one of them.

In another alleged incident, prosecutors said Jeremy raped a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July 2019, Los Angeles County district attorney said.

British woman, 47, who accused Ron Jeremy of attacking her is furious saying ‘I will never get closure’ after judge rules he is unfit to stand trial over 34 sex assaults including 12 rapes

A British former porn star who accused Ron Jeremy of violently raping her at a Halloween Party in 2000 says she is ‘numb’ and ‘angry’ that the adult actor has been deemed medically unfit to stand trial.

Lianne Young, who went by the name of Billie Pratt, was one of 21 women who accused Jeremy of 12 counts of rape and 22 counts of sexual assault over a 23-year period, leading to his arrest in June 2020.

But Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald S. Harris has now ruled the actor cannot stand trial because of his ‘incurable neurocognitive decline’, after medical reports said he has dementia, is ‘incoherent’, and suffers from hearing loss.

Young, who has waived her right to anonymity, blasted the decision, saying it should not have taken two and a half years to get to this point, and said she feels like she’s been ‘abused again’.

At the porn industry party at the former House of Blues in 2000, Young was dressed in a bikini when she says Jeremy shoved her onto a table and forced himself inside her.

According to Young, who worked in the US adult film industry but now works as a counsellor helping sufferers of sexual violence, the ordeal last only a matter of seconds, as she fought Jeremy off of her.

Young said at least three other industry execs watched the assault unfold, however none of them reacted.

‘People were just like, ‘That’s Ron’,’ Young said.

Speaking after discovering the defendant would not stand trial, she told the LA Times: ‘They were aware of his condition before getting us all involved.

‘They were well aware he had dementia, so I’m very disappointed that they didn’t solve that bit before letting us go on that emotional journey for two and a half years.’

In additional comments to The Mirror, she said: ‘I really can’t put it into words how angry I am. I will never get closure.

‘He could have been brought to justice much sooner, but Ron was built up to be this king who was untouchable and his lawyers kept delaying the case.

‘I felt abused again and like a pawn in a game. It felt like getting hit in the stomach by a 200mph tennis ball.’

Speaking earlier this month when it was indicated he would be declared unfit for trial, fellow accuser Charity Carson-Hawke said the star was ‘getting away with it.’

Carson-Hawke, 47, says that in May 2020 Jeremy pinned her against a hotel bathroom wall, grabbed her breasts, and tried to force her to touch his penis.

‘He followed me around and knew who I was and knew what he did. So I feel like he’s getting away with it,’ Carson-Hawke told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview.

‘I wanted to face him in court. Now that’s never going to happen, and I’m never going to get closure.’

The Florida property manager, who had been close friends with Jeremy since 1996, reported him to police two years ago, sparking the investigation and arrest that prompted dozens of other women to come forward to law enforcement.

She also sued the ex porn actor in civil court, a case which Jeremy’s lawyers agreed to settle this month for a ‘substantial’ undisclosed sum, believed to be over $1million.

Carson-Hawke was set to be a key witness in the criminal trial, as she told DailyMail.com last year that Jeremy had confessed to his alleged attempted rape on the phone to her while detectives recorded the conversation.

‘After I finished my case, I just basically walked away. I changed my number. I got married on Friday. I’m trying to rebuild my life. And then I hear about this and it’s devastating,’ she said.

‘I’ve been waiting to have closure and I don’t feel like I have any closure now. No one’s going to get closure. He’s getting away with what he did.

‘He’s a good actor. That’s what he does, he gets away with everything.’

She said she feels he should be convicted and go to prison, despite his medical condition.

‘I think if they did the crime, they’ve gotta pay for the time,’ she said. ‘He’s better off dead.

‘It’s not just me as one victim – there are many, many others,’ she added. ‘How are they going to live their lives? It’s just not fair.

‘I know Ron very well, I think he’s one of the smartest men on earth. And I think he played his game pretty well.’

Jeremy, 69, pleaded not guilty in August 2021 to more than 30 counts of sexual assault, including 12 of rape.

But yesterday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Ronald S. Harris said the actor suffered from ‘incurable neurocognitive decline’, after medical reports said he has dementia, is ‘incoherent’, and suffers from hearing loss.

Attorney Stuart Goldfarb, who represents Jeremy, told the court in March 2022 that his client had been unable to even recognize him when he visited him in a holding cell before a court hearing, and he has been seen struggling to write his own name.

His severe dementia has been determined by a review of medical documents and interviews with Jeremy.

A hearing on whether to place Jeremy in a state hospital will be held next month, the Associated Press said.

Jeremy was among the biggest names in the adult film industry, appearing in more than 2,000 movies starting in the 1970s.

In August 2020, Jeremy wrote on Twitter: ‘I can’t wait to prove my innocence in court! Thank you to everyone for all the support.’

Prosecutors allege Jeremy – born Ronald Jeremy Hyatt – restrained some of the women and raped or sodomized them – and had sex with others who were sleeping or unconscious.

The counts against Jeremy included 12 of forcible rape, seven of forcible oral copulation, six of sexual battery, and two of penetration while the victim was asleep or unconscious, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

The alleged offenses took place at night clubs and bars in the Los Angeles area, during a photo shoot, and at Jeremy’s home, the District Attorney’s office said.

Jeremy was charged with four counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object and two counts of sexual penetration of an unconscious or asleep person.

Further charges included one count each of lewd act upon a child under the age of 14 or 15, sodomy by use of force and assault with intent to commit rape.

LA District Attorney George Gascón said Jeremy’s alleged sexual assaults happened over the course of more than 23 years and involved 21 victims ranging in age from 15 to 51.

Jeremy is alleged to have sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl referred to as ‘Jane Doe 5’ on June 12, 2004, penetrating her with a foreign object, according to the August 19 indictment obtained by DailyMail.com.

Another girl, 17, was allegedly raped in 2008 at a home in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. She was referred to as ‘Jane Doe 22’ in the court documents.

Among the first allegations against Jeremy, prosecutors claim he raped a 19-year-old woman during a photo shoot in the San Fernando Valley in October 1996.

The indictment alleges that Jeremy ‘unlawfully’ had sexual intercourse with ‘Jane Doe 19’ in 2000 by means ‘force, violence, duress, menace or fear of immediate and unlawfully bodily injury.’

Jeremy was also accused of sexually assaulting another woman at a strip club in City of Industry at some point between 2002 and 2003, officials said.

Another woman, 21, went to Jeremy’s home where she was allegedly sexually assaulted in 2010. She was referred to as ‘Jane Doe 23’ in the court documents.

In January 2013, Jeremy allegedly sexually assaulted a 38-year-old woman at a West Hollywood bar he frequented, officials said.

The most recent allegations stem from January 2020 when Jeremy raped and sodomized a woman identified in the court documents as ‘Jane Doe 17,’ the indictment claims.

‘Far too often, survivors of sexual assault suffer in isolation,’ Gascón said.

‘We must ensure that survivors have all options available to help with recovery, including trauma-informed services for healing and support to report such crimes.’

His memoir Ron Jeremy: The Hardest (Working) Man in Showbiz, recounts his life from the streets of New York to arguably the most well known porn actors in the world.

He graduated from Benjamin N. Cardozo High School where he performed in theatrical productions including the musical Oklahoma, according to Village Voice.

He earned a masters degree from Queens College and became a special education teacher in the New York City area, but eventually left teaching to pursue becoming an actor on Broadway.

In 1978, he had first brush with pornography when a girlfriend sent his photo to Playgirl magazine for appearance in its ‘Boy Next Door’ pages.

He has been listed as having 2,542 performance credits in the Internet Adult Film Database. He has directed an additional 296 adult films.

Jeremy has since been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for ‘Most Appearances in Adult Films’ and won several adult film acting awards.

Jeremy, who was active as a porn star from 1979 until 2018, has also acted in a number of mainstream films and television series, including appearances in Ghostbusters and The Boondock Saints.

He has also competed on Wheel of Fortune and appeared in a segment of The Chappelle Show, and numerous music videos for artists including Kid Rock, Moby, Guns & Roses and Sublime.

Jeremy has also had several business endeavors including opening a swingers nightclub in Portland, Oregon which closed in 2015.
