Ron Jeremy has faced multiple allegations of sexual assault, and he's reportedly being investigated by the Los Angeles District Attorney's office.
He's known as one of the most infamous porn stars in history, but Ron Jeremy has had his fair share of eyebrow-raising moments off-camera, as well. While he's become a staple in pop culture, Ron Jeremy has been accused of sexual assault by a number of women—over a dozen, according to The Daily Beast. While the accusations from those women, who are both journalists and adult film stars, caused Jeremy to be banned from the Adult Video News Awards (AVN), The Daily Beast has recently reported that he's currently under investigation over a new set of accusations.

The outlet states that the District Attorney's office is actively looking into multiple allegations of sexual misconduct involving Ron Jeremy. The porn legend's manager refused to comment on the investigation, but the D.A.'s office gave a brief statement. "Sexual assault allegations against Ron Jeremy are under review by our office. No filing decision has been made,” said Greg Risling, the DA’s public information officer.
Janice Griffith, an adult film actress, told The Daily Beast that shes not surprised by the various accusations against Jeremy because of her alleged experience with him in the past. “Ron Jeremy groped me when I was a teenager. I did not give consent, he did not look sober, he didn’t care when I pulled his hand out of my crotch,” she said. It's a story that reads like many others who have stated Ron Jeremy assaulted them, but while he has been forbidden from attending annual events, he hasn't been charged with any crimes.
