One of nearly two dozen women who have accused porn star Ron Jeremy of sexual crimes ranging from harassment to rape has filed suit against the actor over an alleged assault that took place in a Los Angeles hotel in May.

Charity Carson-Hawke, 44, filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday alleging that Jeremy pinned her against a bathroom wall, grabbed her breasts, and tried to force her to touch his penis against her will.

‘Plaintiff was frantically screaming and struggling to get away from plaintiff throughout the encounter,’ the lawsuit cited by Variety states.

‘Eventually, Plaintiff was able to break loose and flee the room.’

Jeremy has denied allegations of sexual misconduct. 

Carson-Hawke, a Florida resident who works in property management, writes in court papers that during their 25-year friendship, Jeremy, 67, never made any sexual advances toward her.

Carson-Hawke filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday alleging that Jeremy (seen above in a Los Angeles court on June 26) pinned her against a bathroom wall, grabbed her breasts, and tried to force her to touch his penis against her will

She says she reported the incident to the Los Angeles Police Department on May 4.

‘Sexual assault allegations against Ron Jeremy are under review by our office,’ a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said at the time.

‘No filing decision has been made.’

‘He’s a sexual predator and he needs to be stopped,’ Carson-Hawke, 44, told the New York Post in June.

‘He sees women as toys.’

According to Carson-Hawke, they were in his hotel room with a few other people, when Jeremy said he wanted to show her something. She followed him into what she thought was another room, which turned out to be a bathroom.

Jeremy is now facing a total of 35 charges involving 23 alleged victims, including a 15-year-old girl. The attacks occurred from 1996 to 2020, authorities contend. He’s pictured in 2004

She says Jeremy then slammed the door behind him, pinned her against a wall and tried to grope her.

‘He was trying to put my hand on his penis,’ she alleges. ‘I’m just like, “What the hell are you doing?” I’m screaming at him and fighting.’

Carson-Hawke says she became entangled in a struggle with Jeremy, until she managed to squeeze out of his grasp and walk out the door.

The civil lawsuit compounds the legal woes for Jeremy, whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt. He stands accused of 35 various sex crimes that he allegedly committed against 23 different women. 

Jeremy pleaded not guilty on October 28 to new charges of rape and sexual assault involving six victims, including a teenage girl.

Jeremy entered the pleas to seven additional charges including three of forcible rape, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

The new charges involve alleged attacks dating from 1996 to 2013 on victims ranging in age from 17 to 38, prosecutors said.

The 17-year-old was raped at a Woodland Hills home in 2008, prosecutors contend.

The other alleged victims include a 19-year-old woman who was raped during a photo shoot in the San Fernando Valley; a 26-year-old woman who was raped at a party in a nightclub; a 38-year-old who was sexually assaulted at a West Hollywood bar where Jeremy was a regular; a woman who was sexually assaulted at Jeremy’s home and a woman who was assaulted at a strip club.

Jeremy, 67, was first charged by prosecutors in Los Angeles in late June after he was accused by four women of sexual assault offenses in West Hollywood. There are now 23 women who have come forward

The 35 charges stem from attacks which allegedly occurred from 1996 to 2020, authorities contend.

Nicknamed ‘The Hedgehog,’ Jeremy has been among the best-known and most prolific performers in the adult film industry since the 1970s.

Jeremy was investigated and charged by a district attorney’s task force formed to take on sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry as the #MeToo era gained momentum in late 2017.

He has been held in jail on $6.6million bail since June.

If convicted of all charges, Jeremy could face a sentence of more than 330 years to life in state prison.   

Within days of his arrest, the LA County Sheriff’s Department received 30 other allegations of forcible rape and groping against the porn star in LA County dating back to 2000, prosecutors said. 

Rumors of Jeremy’s alleged sexual misconduct have circulated in the adult entertainment industry for decades, however they were only thrust into the public eye in the last few years.

The turning point came in 2017, when adult entertainer Ginger Banks compiled a series of allegations against Jeremy during a 10-minute YouTube video.

Months afterward, Rolling Stone published allegations made by a dozen women who said Jeremy either groped them or, as two alleged victims detailed, violently raped them.

Jeremy was expelled from the adult film industry in the bombshell article’s wake, and was even banned from the Exxxotica Expo and the Adult Video News awards.

Rolling Stone followed that article up last month, with several more groping allegations from women outside the adult entertainment field.

Despite the allegations, Jeremy was invited to join dozens of women at a 2018 birthday celebration for brothel owner and reality TV star Dennis Hof at the Bunny Ranch near Carson City.

During that gathering, Jeremy allegedly sexually assaulted a woman at the party. The woman, who asked to be identified, said she horrified that Jeremy was invited to the party in the first place, considering the nature of the allegation made against him.

Hof, who died 48 later, reportedly introduced several of the women at the party to Jeremy, before taking her hand and placing it onto Jeremy’s penis, without her consent.

The woman said Jeremy led her away from the partygoers and toward the back of the building. She said she tried to mouth ‘help me’ to others at the party but failed to get their attention.

Jeremy allegedly took her outside, pressed her up against a railing and forced himself inside her, she said.

Colleen Pinto, a former adult film actress and exotic dancer in Florida, said Jeremy grabbed her breasts during an appearance at a strip club in 2005.

When Pinto tried to pull away from Jeremy, she says he smacked her in the breast with a microphone.

Sabrina Alvarado, who has modeled for playboy and is better known as Marcela Latinbabe, said she first met Jeremy at the Exxxotica Expo in New Jersey, in 2015.

Alvarado said she approached Jeremy to ask for a photo. Immediately, he’s said to have grabbed her breast and put them into his mouth. She provided the outlet with copies of the photos.

Alvarado said she did not give Jeremy permission to touch her and was shaken up by his behavior.

According to Evans, the head of the adult performers union, numerous women have complained of Jeremy running his hands up their skirt and trying to penetrate them without consent.

Jeremy – whose full name is Ron Jeremy Hyatt – is currently jailed on a $6.6million bond after pleading not guilty to several sex crime felonies
