Porn actor Ron Jeremy has been charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl and a dozen more women aged up to 54 in incidents dating back 16 years, Los Angeles prosecutors said Monday.

The controversial star, who appeared in over 1,700 hardcore movies, had already been charged in June with raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth.

His arrest and court appearance at the time prompted a flurry of new claims against the 67-year-old including a claimed from a 21-year-old woman saying she was assaulted outside a Hollywood business in January this year.

Jeremy pleaded not guilty to the earlier charges and was expected to do the same for 20 new counts in California on Monday.

Jeremy was being transported from county jail to court at Department 50 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center for his latest arraignment Monday and will plead not guilty to the latest charges, his attorney told AFP. 

The 20 new charges date back to 2004, when Jeremy allegedly sexually assaulted an unnamed teenage girl at a party in Santa Clarita, just outside Los Angeles.

The alleged victims are aged between 15 and 54, and most recently include an alleged sexual assault outside a business in Hollywood on New Year’s Day this year.

The latest charges include six counts of sexual battery by restraint, five counts of forcible rape, three counts of forcible oral copulation, two counts of forcible penetration by a foreign object and one count each of sodomy, assault with intent to commit rape, penetration by a foreign object on an unconscious or sleeping victim and lewd conduct with a 15-year-old girl.

If convicted, the defendant — who now faces 28 total counts of sexual violence in Los Angeles county — could face 250 years to life in prison.

Jeremy — whose real name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt — appeared in famous adult movies including ‘Deep Throat II’ and ‘John Wayne Bobbitt Uncut.’

With his trademark mustache, he was one of the adult industry’s most recognizable stars among the wider public.

But he has long been dogged by assault claims and barred from industry events in recent years.

After the initial charges – three counts each of forcible rape and forcible penetration by a foreign object and one count each of forcible oral copulation and sexual battery – were brought against Jeremy in June.

His attorney Stuart Goldfarb denied all the allegations and insisted his client was ‘not a rapist.’

‘Ron — over the years, because of who he is — has essentially been a paramour to over 4,000 women. And to allege that he is a rapist is beyond… I mean, women throw themselves at him,’ he added.

Jeremy himself tweeted in June that he was ‘innocent of all charges’ and couldn’t wait to ‘prove my innocence in court!’

Jeremy is the latest high-profile entertainment industry figure to be investigated for sexual abuse in Los Angeles since the #MeToo movement began in 2017.

Los Angeles prosecutors earlier this year filed charges against disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

At least 20 men in the entertainment industry are reported to be part of a Los Angeles district attorney’s taskforce set up in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

Earlier this month a woman who met Jeremy in 2017 said she went to his rundown one bedroom apartment to use the restroom and was so shocked by what she saw she began snapping pictures.

‘It was disgusting, I was so shocked. You could hardly open the front door and you couldn’t get in the bathroom at all,’ she told DailyMail.com.

‘There was trash piled up, old porn memorabilia stuffed in overflowing boxes. His kitchen table looked like an unkempt outside porch, there were plants that had grown around the table legs and into the floor.

‘I honestly thought he was on that show Hoarders. There were cans of roach spray left on the side, piles of medication, books, DVDs, paperwork and he had pet turtles.’
