After declaring his “innocence” on Twitter, Ron Jeremy officially pleaded not guilty to multiple felony sex crimes, Yahoo Entertainment can confirm. The former adult film star, who appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Friday, remains in custody. His bail was previously set at $6.6 million.
On Tuesday, Jeremy was charged with raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth in separate incidents dating back to 2014. In total, he was charged with eight counts of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and sexual battery.
In court on Friday, Jeremy’s attorney said his client “never, in his life, had sex with a female through force or duress,” per the Los Angeles Times. Authorities have received 25 new complaints of sexual misconduct against Jeremy this week since his arrest made news.
