| Last updated
Adult film star Ron Jeremy has been charged with sexually assaulting 17 women.
Prosecutors have added 20 new charges to the 67-year-old, which include the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl.
Some of the charges include forcible rape, sexual battery by restraint, forcible oral copulation, penetration by a foreign object, penetration by a foreign object on an unconscious or sleeping victim, assault with intent to commit rape, and lewd conduct with a minor.
The charges against Jeremy allegedly happened over a span of 16 years, from 2004 to January this year.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said that if he's found guilty of all charges he could face 'a possible maximum sentence of more than 250 years to life in state prison'.
The new charges come after he was charged in June with sexually assaulting four women in incidents that date back to 2014.
The 67-year-old porn star has previously denied all allegations of improper conduct against him.
Jeremy stands accused of assaulting three women at a bar in West Hollywood on separate occasions between the years of 2017 and 2019, as well as raping a 25-year-old woman at a property in West Hollywood in May 2014.
According to Buzzfeed, six of the charges relate to alleged incidents at the West Hollywood bar and a seventh in the parking lot outside.
The victims of the June charges have only been identified as Jane Does one, two, three, and four, in accordance with their rights to anonymity.
Jeremy previously spoke out against sexual assault allegations in November 2017, when he made a statement to Rolling Stone: "These allegations are pure lies or buyers' remorse.
"I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of 'groping.' I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this."
He has now been charged and will spend time in court, where he will be tried under his real name, Ronald Jeremy Hyatt.
