Porn star Ron Jeremy has been indicted on more than 30 counts of sexual assault involving 21 women and girls between the ages of 15 and 51 and covering allegations from 1996 to 2019.

The indictment was unsealed on Wednesday after a grand jury returned it on August 19. Jeremy, 68, pleaded not guilty in court to all allegations on Wednesday.

The Associated Press said all the charges appear identical to charges filed against Jeremy, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, last year. Prosecutors used a similar tactic against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein: The indictment replaces the original charges and allows prosecutors to avoid a public preliminary hearing on the evidence.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the charges against Jeremy include raping a 19-year-old woman during on October 1996 photo shoot, a 26-year-old woman at a party in October 2000, and a 17-year-old girl in 2008. He’s also accused of sexually assaulting a young woman at a strip club in 2002 or 2003, another woman at his home in 2010, and a 38-year-old woman at a bar in January 2013.

Jeremy was initially arrested in June 2020 and has been held on a $6.6 million bail since then.
