Ron Jeremy’s rape case suspended after ‘incoherent’ ex-porn star taken for mental health screening

The case of Ron Jeremy’s serial rape was suspended this week after the jailed porn star was asked to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

The 69-year-old, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, was charged with 34 counts of sexual assault in August last year, with charges dating back to 1996.

The ages of his 21 alleged victims ranged from 15 to 51 years. Jeremy has pleaded not guilty.

On Thursday, March 17, a critical hearing in the case was suspended after he reportedly failed to recognize his own lawyer.

“I was just upstairs in the cell he was being held in trying unsuccessfully to get his attention,” his defense attorney, Stuart Goldfarb, told the court of US media reports.

“He wasn’t able to determine who I was and didn’t want to put either me or the bailiff in a wheelchair to get down here. I don’t think he should be forced to come here under the circumstances.”

Judge George Lomeli stated that the bailiff also described Jeremy as “incoherent” and “not following orders” before announcing his decision to stay the case. The case has now been referred to a mental health courthouse for an April 1 hearing, with Jeremy expected to return to the criminal courtroom on April 19.

Jeremy allegedly took advantage of the novelty of his celebrity to meet and often isolate the women he raped and sexually abused, using the same tactics for years, according to testimony from the grand jury of 21 women unsealed last September became.

“Wouldn’t it be fun if we got a picture and an autograph from him?” A woman, identified only as Jane Doe 8, said she remembered telling her friend when she met Jeremy in 2013 at a bar and grill in West Hollywood. The woman testified that he would sexually assault her minutes later. Several women claimed the attacks took place in the restaurant’s bathroom.

The March 17 hearing was scheduled to address Jeremy’s request to split the case into 21 separate trials, Rolling Stone reports. However, prosecutors have opposed the request, arguing that the offenses he is charged with involve the same type of crimes.
