What were the allegations made against Ron Jeremy in 2017 and 2018?
Back in 2017, The Sun reported how Ron had been accused of sexual assault in allegations which had resurfaced in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex assault probe.
These included claims that he had sexually assaulted women at adult industry expos.
Then in 2018, Kristin Brodie filed the lawsuit in King County Superior Court against the porn actor, after Tacoma city and Pierce County prosecutors decided against filing criminal changes.
The lawsuit claimed that the 22-year-old model was working for a Seattle radio station at a Tacoma sex shop promotional event in September 2017 when Ron Jeremy assaulted her four times.
In a statement in 2018, after Tacoma City prosecutors said they weren’t pursuing the complaints, the porn actor said that “all serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges.”
