Former Home and Away actor Martin Lynes to face new sexual assault allegations

A NSW court heard the Crown intends to lay new charges against Martin Lynes when he next appears in September.

Actor Martin Lynes is facing fresh sexual assault allegations, a court has heard.

In Wyong Local Court on Tuesday the Crown said it intended lay new charges against Mr Lynes when he next appears in September, reports The Daily Telegraph.

Earlier this year the 49-year-old, who appeared in Aussie dramas like All Saints, Home and Away and Blue Water High, was arrested on suspicion of attacking a woman at his NSW Central Coast home and is already facing nine related charges. Those include four counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, three counts of common assault and one count each of sexual intercourse without consent and indecent assault.

It is alleged that Mr Lynes assaulted a woman over a four-hour period on the night of February 29 and the new charges come after DNA evidence collected by police has been processed.

It is believed Mr Lynes is yet to enter any formal pleas.
