OMG look at Ron Jeremy! What happened?

Jailed porn star Ron Jeremy has a new trial date in his serial rape case — and a new lawyer on his defense team.

At a hearing in Los Angeles Wednesday, the adult film industry veteran agreed to push the start of his planned jury trial from late February to May 2. His defense lawyer, Stuart Goldfarb, also tells Rolling Stone that Kate Hardie will help represent the actor at trial.

Hardie is a former Los Angeles County public defender now specializing in sex crimes, according to her website. She confirmed her new role on the case in an email Wednesday but declined to comment further.

Jeremy, whose legal name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, appeared at the hearing in a wheelchair with a bushy beard and his trademark long hair now almost completely white. He spoke only to tell Judge George Lomeli that he agreed to the case delay and new trial date.

The 68-year-old performer has been in custody in Los Angeles County since his June 2020 arrest. He’s being housed in a medical ward, Goldfarb says. “He’s doing as well as someone could do in jail,” Goldfarb says.

Jeremy has denied any wrongdoing in the case. He pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of sexual assault, including a dozen counts of forcible rape, following his indictment by a Los Angeles County grand jury.

The new indictment returned Aug. 19 involves 21 alleged victims ranging in age from 15 to 51 and an alleged pattern of predatory behavior dating back to 1996.

All of the alleged victims testified for the grand jury, with many saying Jeremy used his status as a pop-culture icon to disarm their defenses, according to transcripts of the proceeding obtained by Rolling Stone.

Multiple women said Jeremy used his VIP access to the employee bathrooms at the Rainbow Bar and Grill in West Hollywood to lure them out of earshot of other patrons, trap them in a confined space, and sexually assault them.

I know a woman who was a writer in porn who believes Ron has dementia or some similar condition. About a year or two before he got arrested, there was some get together amonst people who were in the porn industry, and he talked like it was back in 1990s when the business was still booming and asked my friend who she was writing for - she had been retired for at least a decade at that point and they had talked several times in that interm.

Others said his hygiene (which was always lacking) had gotten really bad in recent years and reeked of BO and piss, wore filthy clothes when he went out, his apartment was also a filthy mess, and he didn't take his medications regularly. One porn star that he assaulted said it's the best thing for him to be locked up because not only he couldn't assault anyone else and given his meds on schedule.

He had a heart attack back in 2013 and his health has been visibly declining ever since.

His hair grows really quickly, though, because his hair now must be 4 inches longer than it was back in August when he was arraigned. I'm sure the hair dye was temporary and it's mostly washed out, but quite a bit of it has grown out as well.

I haven't really followed this case, but while reading Facebook comments about the alleged murder of Christy Giles and Hilda Cabrales-Arzola, I stumbled upon the profile of the alleged perpetrator's ex fiancee, a woman named Kali Nolen. She claims she used to be Ron Jeremy's assistant, and insists he did NOT rape anyone. That same woman also calls Andy Dick her "BFF", gave an interview about him to the Daily Mail, and says she used to live with Corey Feldman.

Not sure what to think, she sounds kind of deranged (calls herself Jeremy's "princess"!) I just thought I'd share it here. It's fascinating to me how all these people seem to be interconnected.

I totally believe he's guilty, but I'm fascinated as to his motive. I mean sure, he is/was ugly, but he got TONS of pussy. He was paid to f*ck and also had many female fans due to being a pop culture icon and mainstream celebrity. Even though in porn, he was totally main stream and in tv appearances even in some regular films. So, why did he feel the need to rape? He was hired to f*ck beautiful women and he had many women "fans" who wanted him due to his fame and money. The psychology is mystifying.

One of the girls talks about being good friends with Nicole Brown Simpson and her experiences with that crowd. Based on other things I’ve read, I gather that there was a circle of friends who were all famous black men with white wives. They all seemed to be linked up as you describe.

He's undergoing a mental health evaluation after not recognizing his attorney and refused to cooperate with the attorney and jail guards. I suspect he'll be found to have some form of dementia, as I mentioned at R10 he's been showing some signs of it for a few years now. Plus, he had that wild eyed look and seemed to not know which direction to go at some of his trials. He'll probably be transferred to a nursing home.

The other part of what you mentioned R28 is that those women were also paid to have sex with him, right? They weren't volunteers? Out in the real world it's a little different I suspect. He might have had many female fans but when you get right down to it, how many women were willing to seal the deal for free? As many as he got when everyone on both sides of the transaction was paid to play?

The psychology is probably the same as it is for some who watch a lot of porn unrealistic expectations created that can't possibly be met in the real world in a consistent way. The sheer number of accusations sounds like he may have, allegedly. been trying to keep up the same pace from years gone by.

R43, my straight swinger friend’s sex club that they frequent had Ron Jeremy as a guest star about 10 years ago. He apparently fucked a dozen or so women that night (each for a very short period of time basically so they could say they fucked Ron Jeremy). This was a middle aged, average suburban looking crowd.

Ron was a friend of of a friend and I socialized with him several times. Never fucked him and never would. Gross. Just a guy who sometimes dropped by to say hello at some pool parties or cook-outs.

He was always a gentleman and very sweet. Sometimes I’d run into him at the B of A on Sunset in WeHo. Always a sweetheart. Would say hi and offer up a hug.

He was like a grandpa.

I couldn’t believe it when he was charged with multiple sexual assaults.

I don't really know much about these classic porn stars that people talk about, but I do remember seeing an old documentary where Ruby Wax went to meet up with some porn performers, and Ron Jeremy was there. I always remember him saying something like: "When guys watch porn and see a guy who looks like me get the girl, it makes them feel like they would definitely be able to get the girl. After all, if she would go for a guy who looks like me..." It was pretty sad, for sure.

But yeah, if all this stuff is true, it's pretty disgusting.

The woman who was a writer in porn that I know posted in more detail on facebook about Ron's mental decline.

[quote]He's not faking it. I saw him last about 3 yrs ago at Jim South's 80th birthday party. I've known Ron since 1985. At the party he was talking to me like it was still the 90s. "Who are you writing for these days? What are your scripts getting?" etc. I was long retired and so was he. His lovely shirt had dribbles of dried food down the front. The two times I saw him before that he smelled so bad I couldn't go near him. He came to my house to do an interview for a magazine -- and his head had sores all around the bald part. It was horrid. He is faking nothing. It has been a long slow downward spiral for him. Bet you anything the trial will be called off. They'll find he's incapable of rational thought. Dementia.

Another guy who interacted with him around the same time said he would be ok for a while then be off to himself mumbling to himself.

I wonder how much money he has left. He looks like he is in poverty, but maybe this is just his mental decline. I saw interior photos of his condo a year or so ago, and was shocked because it was full of trash, nothing nice. He should be rich with having worked for so many years in such high profile (and low profile) projects. He has a reputation for being a cheap dude. So where is all his money?

R59 And he's had a bad rep among a lot of other people in the industry since very early on in his career. Jerry Butler had all kinds of unflattering stories about him in his book and there were worse one's that weren't printed. Director Warren Evans talked about how he'd hurt women sometimes on purpose with his dick if he didn't like them.

Plenty of women in the industry have awful stories about ranging from him raping/sexually assaulting them to stiffing them on pay or doing something else awful to them personally. He wasn't like that to everyone, especially if it was a strong woman who wouldn't stand for it. It's too bad it took him doing it a number of women outside of porn for authorities to do anything about it.

by Anonymousreply 71March 25, 2023 1:16 AM

For all the second-wave feminism I read at university, nothing brought the systemic disadvantage to women and the embedded power structures of the patriarchy home to me like my first sight of Ron Jeremy.

This would have been in the late 80s, the beginning of the porn star’s heyday, and he already looked revolting. That was kind of the point of him, I understood. He was there so that every man, no matter how unprepossessing, could inch his erection a little closer to the dream of being able to shag all the desirable women that came into his orbit. He was there to assure them all that there was no standard too low.

The two-part Channel 4 documentary Porn King: The Rise and Fall of Ron Jeremy gives a voice to some of the women who have been the subject of his attentions, on and off set, including some of those whom – according to their vivid testimony – he raped. Jeremy is in jail awaiting, if found medically competent by experts, trial on 34 charges. They include 12 of rape, including of a 15-year-old girl in 2004, forcible oral sex, penetration with a foreign object and sodomy, the last allegedly taking place in 2020. Jeremy denies the charges.

The documentary follows the distressing, depressing pattern that has become familiar to us through the likes of Surviving R Kelly, Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story, innumerable programmes about Jeffrey Epstein and most of Netflix’s true-crime output. A predatory man uses his charm/wealth/power/a combination thereof to abuse the women around him, either ignored or enabled by those in his employ, or otherwise benefiting from his position. He goes unchallenged for decades while the women look for the safety to speak up, and then must fight to be heard and taken seriously. The problems women face in such situations are, of course, multiplied immeasurably when they are women in the porn industry. The idea that if somebody consents to sex once, she has effectively consented to it for ever and with anyone dies particularly hard when the woman has sex for a living. It doesn’t hold up under the slightest scrutiny, but even the slightest scrutiny of endemic prejudice is always in short supply.

The former adult film star Ginger Lynn says Jeremy raped her in 1983, after she and her then boyfriend refused to let him join in a sex scene they had been filming earlier that day. The next day, on her 21st birthday, he was used as a last-minute substitute for another sex scene with her, although he had always been on her “‘No’ list”. “I didn’t want to fuck Ron – he was old, hairy, smelly,” she remembers. “And he thought he was funny.”

Bristol-born and bred Lianne Young moved to the US in her early 20s at the turn of the millennium to work in the porn industry. “I knew I would never do a scene with Ron Jeremy,” she says. “The man is grotesque.” She describes chatting to people at an industry party when he came up behind her, pushed her over a table and shoved his penis inside her. It all took about four or five seconds. He has lived, she says, rent-free in her head ever since. The silence of the onlookers remains deafening.

I tried watching some documentary about Ron Jeremy. I thought it might be interesting; after all he's a legendary porn star. But it was so dull I couldn't watch it all. It turns out that Ron Jeremy, the man who's fucked hundreds of women, is a sad, seemingly quite lonely, man. The documentary features film of his pathetic attempts to become a mainstream performer. In one of them he's trying to do standup comedy; he opens his bit by picking at his mouth and saying "Sorry, I think I got a piece of tampon stuck in my teeth." Funny. I don't think so. Anyway, even will all the sexual accusation against him I somehow can't help for sorry for this guy. He seems so alone.

"I just received a heartbreaking call from Eric Edwards this morning. As some of you may have realized lately, Eric's recall of movies, scenes, times, dates, etc has been a bit off -- which happens to all of us at some time or another. What doesn't happen is getting lost walking back home from the post office, which happened to Eric last week.

Eric went to the doctor and has been diagnosed with early onset dementia and wanted me to pass that on to everyone, as he just wanted people to be aware. It's a disease I wouldn't wish on anyone."
