Amy Graves/Getty Ron Jeremy Charged with 20 New Counts of Sexual Assault, 1 Allegedly Involving 15-Year-Old The allegations against the adult film star, whose real name is Ron Jeremy Hyatt, date back to 1996 with the victims ranging in age from 15 to 51. In a press release, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón said, "Far too often, survivors of sexual assault suffer in isolation. 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." Jeremy, who has continued to deny all wrongdoing, called the sexual assault claims "pure lies and buyer's remorse" in Rolling Stone in 2017. "I have never and would never rape anyone," he said. He also expressed support for victims of sexual assault, saying, "These real predators need to be taken down." Jeremy is due back in court on Oct. 12.
