Rugby Star Convicted of Rape

Posted by Ed 50 days ago 

Two-time NRL player-of-the-year Jarryd Hayne will “inevitably” be jailed after a jury found he raped a woman in her Newcastle home in 2018.

Hayne, 33, had denied assaulting the woman saying the incident in her bedroom had been consensual.

After nearly 18 hours of deliberations that began last Wednesday, the Sydney District Court jury found him not guilty of both counts of aggravated sexual intercourse without consent inflicting actual bodily harm.

Former NRL superstar Jarryd Hayne’s now completed sexual assault trial was not the first time he has been accused of rape.
Hayne, a two-time Dally M medal winner and Parramatta Eels great, was on Monday found guilty of sexually assaulting a young woman at a home in Newcastle in 2018.
But the 33-year-old also faced serious sexual assault allegations from a US woman, who claimed he forced himself on her during his stint playing for the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL five years ago.
