Ron Jeremy was indicted on more than 30 sexual assault counts involving 21 victims over a period of more than two decades, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.

The indictment replaces the criminal charges filed last year.  A grand jury returned the indictment August 19 after considering all the accusations from the 2020 charges, according to the announcement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.

The 67-year-old adult film star, born Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, has remained in jail since being arrested last summer on $6.6 million bail.

Jeremy pleaded not guilty to all charges.

“Far too often, survivors of sexual assault suffer in isolation,” District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement, according to the industry publication.  “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 is scheduled to return to court on October 12 for a pretrial conference.
