Ron Jeremy, the well-known adult film star, will be released from prison for health reasons due to his precarious physical condition and the diagnosis of dementia despite being an alleged serial sex offender.
The actor, who was accused of rape and sexual assault by 21 victims, some of them minors, will be transferred to a “private residence” where he will receive specialized medical care.
The authorities decided to change his confinement in prison to a transfer to an environment where he can receive specific care to address his health problems. His physical and mental condition has deteriorated significantly, which forced this decision.
Paul Thompson, Los Angeles County District Attorney, explained that it is a decision that is out of his hands, according to an email reported by the Los Angeles Times.
“His medical condition has deteriorated to the point where he is essentially bedridden. I feel very bad that we are here, but it is out of our control,” Thompson said. “His physical and mental condition deteriorated rapidly and we are left with no other option. I regret that we have not been able to get full justice in the courts.”
The accusations against Jeremy have generated great controversy and led to charges against him in June 2020 before further ones arrived in August the same year. He was imprisoned whilst awaiting trial, which was scheduled for 2022 before it was delayed due to health reasons.
Jeremy, who became especially famous in the 1980s and 1990s as a porn star, faced 33 counts of rape and sexual assault.
Ron Jeremy’s dementia saved him from prison
The actor, a leading figure in the adult entertainment industry, faces serious charges including rape and sexual assault. The allegations come from multiple people, some of whom were minors at the time of the alleged crimes.
Had Jeremy gone to trial and been convicted, he could have faced a sentence of more than 300 years.
