Ron Jeremy's Mental Health in Question, Trial Suspended

Ron Jeremy's Mental Health in Question, Trial Suspended

LOS ANGELES — The judge presiding over the Ron Jeremy case as it approaches trial suspended proceedings during today’s hearing after he received reports from Jeremy’s lawyer and the bailiff that the defendant was “incoherent” and couldn’t be transported to court.

Judge George Lomeli “referred the case to a mental health courthouse for an April 1 hearing and set a follow-up date back in his criminal courtroom for April 19,” Rolling Stone reported from the courtroom.

The judge also suggested that evaluations be done “by a psychiatrist on each side regarding the issues of competency.” 

Jeremy’s defense attorney Stuart Goldfarb informed the judge that he “was just up in the cell where [Jeremy] was being kept, and I tried to get his attention unsuccessfully.”

“He was unable to determine who I was and wouldn’t accommodate both myself and the bailiff to fit into the wheelchair to come down here,” Goldfarb added. “I don’t think he should be forced to come down here under these circumstances.”

The judge reported that the bailiff had also said Jeremy was “incoherent” and “not obeying commands.”

Jeremy is currently awaiting trial in Los Angeles in jail, where he has remained following his arrest in June 2020.

After an August 2021 grand jury indictment was returned, Jeremy pled not guilty to 12 counts of forcible rape, seven counts of forcible oral copulation, six counts of sexual battery by restraint, four counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object, two counts of sexual penetration of an unconscious or asleep person and one count each of lewd act upon a child under the age of 14 or 15, sodomy by use of force and assault with intent to commit rape.

Last year, XBIZ exclusively published a detailed account of the 21 accusations that form the Los Angeles County District Attorney's case against Jeremy, the only chronological, complete account of the testimonies given before the grand jury in August 2021.
