The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced new charges Monday against an an adult-film actor accused of multiple counts of sexual assault.

Ron Jeremy Hyatt was charged Monday with 20 new sexual assault counts going back to 2004, involving 13 women, the D.A.'s Office said.

In June, Hyatt was charged with forcibly raping three women and sexually assaulting another woman in separate West Hollywood incidents dating back to 2014.

The complaint against Hyatt now includes six counts of sexual battery by restraint, five counts of forcible rape, three counts of forcible oral copulation, two count 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.

The D.A.'s Office said the new charges involved victims from 15 to 54 years old. In June 2004, a 15-year-old girl attended a party in Santa Clarita where the defendant allegedly sexually assaulted her. The most recent incident occurred on Jan. 1, 2020, the D.A.'s Office alleges, when Hyatt is accused of sexually assaulting a 21-year-old woman outside a business in Hollywood. Six other alleged sexual assaults happened inside a West Hollywood bar the defendant frequented and another in the bar’s parking lot.

If convicted as charged, Hyatt faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 250 years to life in state prison, the D.A.'s Office said.
