LOWELL, Mass., July 1 (UPI) -- Massachusetts state Sen. J. James Marzilli Jr. now faces charges he sexually accosted four women during a span of four hours one afternoon last month.

The latest charges came Tuesday when a Middlesex County grand jury indicted the Democratic lawmaker from Arlington on four charges stemming from his encounter with two women in downtown Lowell June 3, The Boston Globe reported.

Prosecutors alleged in a news release that Marzilli told one woman, "The sex is sweet, the sex is sweet, you want it, and you want to go with me."

He allegedly asked the second woman "Do you have any undergarments under that?"

He has already pleaded innocent to charges stemming from the other two similar incidents and is to be arraigned in Superior Court next week on the latest counts.

Marzilli served for 17 years in the House before being elected to the Senate in a special election last year. He has said he will not run for re-election this fall.
