Two months after the allegations, the 67-year-old was accused of raping three women and sexually assaulting a fourth in dating incidents dating back to 2014.
The district attorney’s office said in a statement that its alleged victims in the new charges range from 17 to 15 to 54 years and have a term of 16 years.
Jeremy pleaded not guilty in court in Los Angeles on Monday. He also pleaded not guilty to the previous charges and then wrote on Twitter: “I can’t wait to prove my innocence in court!” Thanks everyone for all the support. ”
Jeremy, whose legal name is Ronald Jeremy Hyatt, has been jailed since June on $ 6.6m bail.
The district attorney’s office said the period for the new count is from 2004 to January this year, when they allege that a 21-year-old man was sexually assaulted outside a Hollywood business.
The charges include five counts of forcible rape and six counts of sexual battery by restraint. The statement said he was also accused of having sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl in 2004 at a party north of Los Angeles. He said that a number of incidents have reportedly taken place at bars in West Hollywood.
If convicted as charged, Jeremy faces a possible maximum prison sentence of more than 250 years of age.
Investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department made a call in June to reveal more potential victims after initial allegations.
Jeremy, nicknamed “Hedgehog”, has been one of the best-known and most prolific actors in the adult film industry since the 1970s, appearing in over 2,000 adult films.
He was investigated and charged by the Taskforce of a District Attorney formed for sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry as the #MeToo era caught momentum in late 2017.
