Defense Psych Expert: Ron Jeremy Not Competent to Stand Trial

Defense Psych Expert: Ron Jeremy Not Competent to Stand Trial

LOS ANGELES — A psychiatric expert for the defense has issued a report asserting that Ron Jeremy is not competent to stand trial in Los Angeles for multiple sexual assaults and rapes.

According to sources familiar with the case, the expert issued the report yesterday, and it was presented in court today.

The case has now been postponed until Oct. 3.

The expert was hired by Jeremy’s attorney, Stuart Goldfarb. The Los Angeles County district attorney's office has also hired its own psych expert, who will produce another report assessing Jeremy’s competency.

The criminal case has been at a standstill since presiding Judge George Lomeli's March 17 decision to suspend proceedings after he received reports from Goldfarb and the bailiff that the defendant was “incoherent” and could not be transported to court.

As XBIZ reported, Judge Lomeli then referred the case to a mental health courthouse for a decision on Jeremy’s ability to stand trial. The judge recommended that psychiatrists on each side conduct evaluations to determine competency.

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

After an Aug. 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 published an exclusive detailed account of the 21 accusations that form the Los Angeles County district attorney's case against Jeremy. It remains the only comprehensive journalistic account of the testimonies given before the grand jury in Aug. 2021.
