Jared Remy, the son of Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy, allegedly beat and hurled homophobic slurs at a fellow Cambridge jail inmate last week because Remy believed him to be a child molester, according to Middlesex County prosecutors.
“I had a plan and I did it,” Remy told investigators, according to court documents filed in Cambridge District Court. “I took . . . boiling hot water and threw it in the guy’s face. I took a piece of soap and threw it at his face and hit him with a chair. Once I slipped, I punched him in the face.”
Remy, 35, is awaiting trial on murder charges in the death of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel, on Aug. 15.
The alleged attack on the inmate occurred just before 10 a.m. on April 3, as the victim, identified in court documents as Jemery Hodges, 27, was watching television. Hodges is awaiting trial in Middlesex County on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography, said a spokeswoman for the district attorney.
According to federal court documents, Hodges pleaded guilty last year in Mississippi to transporting a minor to engage in commercial sex acts and sexual exploitation of a minor by production of sexually explicit material. Hodges was sentenced to 23 years and two months in federal prison.
