American porn actor Ron Jeremy, accused in California of rape and sexual assault of 21 victims, some of them minors, will be released from prison and will be transferred to a "private residence" because he suffers from dementia, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The septuagenarian, who appeared in more than 1,700 films throughout his career, "has deteriorated to the point of being essentially bedridden," according to an email from the Los Angeles prosecutor's office obtained by the outlet.

For this reason, a judge agreed to transfer him to a "private residence", where he will receive "medical care 24 hours a day", after it was determined that "no medical center would accept him."

Actor Ron Jeremy is not fit to stand trial for sexual abuse, judge decides

His release from prison for health reasons, which the prosecutor opposed, practically extinguishes the actor's chances of being tried for the violations of which he is accused.

Dementia is a degenerative disease that generally worsens over time.

In January, the former adult film star had already been declared mentally unfit to stand trial, following a psychiatric examination.

Jeremy was accused of raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth in June 2020.

His arrest and appearance before a Los Angeles court triggered a new wave of complaints against him, and he has been in preventive detention ever since.

The first accusations date back to 1996. In total, Jeremy is accused of various acts of sexual violence against 21 women between the ages of 15 and 51.

The actor has always denied the accusations against him. On the social network then called Twitter, he said he was totally "innocent," and before the judge he pleaded "not guilty."

In June 2020, his lawyer Stuart Goldfarb denied all allegations against his client, insisting that he was "not a rapist".
