Ron Jeremy was charged with a slew of new sex crimes on Wednesday, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

The former adult film star, born Ron Jeremy Hyatt, now faces seven additional sexual assault counts, including three counts of forcible rape, two counts of forcible oral copulation and one count each of sexual battery by restraint and assault with intent to commit forcible digital penetration, according to authorities.

The 67-year-old was already facing more than 20 counts of sexual assault, with the allegations going back decades. Jeremy, who has been jailed since he was arrested in June, once again pleaded not guilty to the new charges Wednesday. He is scheduled to return to court Dec. 14 for a preliminary hearing.

In June, he was arrested and 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. Then in August, he was further charged with 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, according to the district attorney's office.

Additionally, 14 cases were declined Wednesday because they were outside the statute of limitations, according to authorities.

If convicted as charged,  Jeremy faces a possible maximum sentence of more than 330 years to life in state prison.
