Porn star Ron Jeremy 'hit with 20 new sex assault and groping charges after dozens of women came forward after arrest'

PORN star Ron Jeremy was hit with 20 new sexual assault and groping charges on Monday by Los Angeles County prosecutors.

The new charges against Jeremy, 67, came after his arrest in June, when dozens of more women reported allegations against him to authorities.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said in a news release a criminal complaint against Jeremy was amended on Monday to raise the charges against him.

He now faces new sexual assault accusations from 13 women — dating back to 2004.

Jeremy now faces a slew of charges including sexual battery, rape, forced oral sex, and penetration by a foreign object on an unconscious or sleeping victim, and lewd conduct with a 15-year-old girl.

In June, Jeremy was arrested on charges that included rape and sexual battery.


Officials said the new charges filed on Monday span 16 years and involve victims from 15 to 54 years old.

The district attorney's office alleged that Jeremy sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl at a party in Santa Clarita, California, in June 2004.

Most recently, Jeremy is accused to sexually assaulting a 21-year-old woman in Hollywood on New Years Day.

At least six other sexual assaults allegedly happened inside a bar in West Hollywood that Jeremy is said to have frequented.

Officials said a victim claimed she was sexually assaulted in the parking lot of that bar, as well.

If convicted, Jeremy faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 250 years to life in state prison.

The 67-year-old pleaded not guilty in June following his arrest.

He's since been jailed in lieu of $6.6million bail — despite his defense arguing for a lower bail amount.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives had been investigating Jeremy for two years, and presented the case to prosecutors in June.

Nicknamed “The Hedgehog,” Jeremy is among the best known and most prolific actors in the history of the porn industry.

He has thousands of credits to his name, along with appearances in more mainstream entertainments like music videos and the VH1 reality television series The Surreal Life.
