LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Adult film star Ron Jeremy is due to be charged Monday on 20 additional rape and other sexual assaults involving 12 other women and a young girl in attacks in 2004, increasing the number of alleged victims 17 rises.
67-year-old Jeremy pleaded not guilty in June for raping three women and sexually assaulting another woman in separate 2014 attacks.
The prosecution changed the complaint against the defendant – real name Ronald Jeremy Hyatt – on Monday so that, among other things, a total of eight rapes and indecent behavior against a 15-year-old girl were taken into account.
If convicted in any way, the porn star could live up to 250 years in prison.
Despite a request from the defense to lower the amount, he was jailed instead of $ 6.6 million on bail.
Prosecutors said the victims were between 15 and 54 years old and the teenager was attacked at a party she attended in Santa Clarita. The latest allegation was made by a 21-year-old woman who alleged that Jeremy sexually assaulted her outside of a store in Hollywood on New Year’s Day this year.
Half a dozen of the other alleged assaults took place in a West Hollywood bar that the defendant frequented, and another took place in the bar’s parking lot, according to prosecutors.
The defendant is charged with raping a 25-year-old woman in a West Hollywood home in May 2014. He is also charged with raping a 33-year-old woman and sexually assaulting a 46-year-old woman on various occasions on a bar in West Hollywood in 2017 and raping a 30-year-old woman in the same bar last July, prosecutors said of the Los Angeles County.
The amended charges include eight cases of rape, seven cases of sexual battery by restraint, four cases of violent oral copulation, three cases of sexual penetration by use of force, and one each of sodomy, assault with intent to commit rape, sexual penetration by Anesthesia or controlled substance, sexual invasion of a foreign object, sexual invasion of an unconscious or sleeping victim, and indecent behavior with a minor.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said the case was the result of a two-year investigation.
