Former adult film star Ron Jeremy has been released to a “private residence,” due to deteriorating health. Jeremy, whose full name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, 70, was being held in the Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles for months since he was declared incompetent to stand trial earlier this year.
Jeremy, who has dementia, was waiting to be placed in a state medical facility, the Los Angeles Times reported.
In 2021, he entered a not-guilty plea after a grand jury indicted him on over 30 counts of sexual assault, including 12 counts of forcible rape.
According to an email obtained by The Times, a judge on Friday ruled that Jeremy should be released to a private residence to receive medical care since “no medical facility will take him.”
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office did not respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment but told Fox News that the court granted the conditional release despite the office’s concerns for public safety.
“According to them, he is ‘practically bedridden’ and does not have the ability to leave a residence. We expressed concern that even if that is true, he could assault caregivers, which he has allegedly attempted to do at other facilities. The judge said the public guardian is responsible for that and could hire male caregivers and overruled our objection,” the office said.
Jeremy was charged for allegedly sexually assaulting 21 women between the 1990s and 2019.
Transcripts of grand jury testimony from women and girls obtained by The Associated Press, showed how Jeremy would assault women. According to the testimony, Jeremy would lure them into a small secluded space, often the bathroom of a West Hollywood bar and grill he frequents, trap them and sexually assault them.
