Ron Jeremy has been said to be unfit to stand trial in regards to numerous counts of sexual assault, including rape. This comes as prosecutors have discovered he is experiencing clinical memory loss.
According to reports, the ex-porn star is thought to have extreme dementia. This diagnosis came from reviews from medical experts that the prosecutors and defense attorneys called on. They added that they don’t believe that he is pretending, either.
Noting the diagnosis, an L.A. County Deputy D.A. said that Jeremy will be declared incompetent as soon as Jan. 17. This will halt the proceedings against him and will most likely have him sent to a state-operated hospital. If Jeremy shows improvement later on, future prosecution could occur.
In 2021, Jeremy faced a 30-count indictment that contained accusations from 21 various women. They all stated that Jeremy forced himself on them in some way when they dated him more than 20 years or more ago. The supposed victims had ranged from ages 15 to 51. He pled not guilty to the charges.
Some have said that the charges against Jeremy have been a long time coming as a representation of the reckoning in the adult film industry. This is where boundaries may be crossed into criminal actions.
Sources report that many of the alleged victims are dissatisfied with the lastest decision, feeling as if justice won’t be served.
