Jeremy, 67, was initially charged with three counts each of forcible rape and forcible penetration by a foreign object and one count each of forcible oral copulation and sexual battery. Before his arrest in late June, Jeremy tweeted that he was innocent of the charges.

The DA’s office said the most recent incident occurred on January 1, when Jeremy allegedly assaulted a 21-year-old woman outside a Hollywood business. Six other alleged assaults took place inside a West Hollywood bar and a seventh in the bar’s parking lot. Jeremy faces a maximum of more than 250 years to life in prison if convicted as charged. He’ll also have to register as a sex offender.

Jeremy allegedly assaulted the 15-year-old girl at a party in Santa Clarita in June 2004, the office said.

The June charges included the forcible rape of a 25-year-old woman in May 2014, sexual assaults against a 33-year-old woman and a 46-year-old woman in separate incidents at a West Hollywood bar in 2007, and the rape of a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July 2019.
