Ron Jeremy’s Sister Requests Lawyer to be his Conservator

Ron Jeremy's sister Susan Billotte has requested that his lawyer Ellen Finkelberg be appointed as a conservator for the adult film star. TMZ first broke the news about the petition to the courts.
The docs state, Ron is “concurrently incarcerated at the Twin Towers-Mens Central Jail. He has been found incompetent to stand trial in a criminal case due to a diagnosis with symptoms of Lewy body dementia and has a pending transfer to a state hospital.” According to the docs, there is urgency to get a conservator now so Jeremy can get to a “private secured perimeter facility specializing in treatment of dementia.” In other words, his sister says he’s in desperate need of a conservator but is unable to make the call due to his deteriorating health.

According to our sources, Ron Jeremy has been in the state mental home for months, where he receives round-the-clock care.  This however directly contradicts the documents filed by his sister which claim that he's still pending transfer to the medical facility. The need for a conservator is something that anyone with the inability to make decisions for themselves must have. If you can't remember to eat or not urinate only yourself, then you're not really in a position to decide much else for yourself, which is why his sister is asking the courts to appoint Ron's lawyer in this position.
