Share

While the most recent allegation is being actively pursued by NSW Police, with criminal charges expected to be laid later this evening, the United States case has progressed only as a civil matter, after it was rejected by the District Attorney's Office for lacking enough evidence to prove the crime of rape beyond reasonable doubt.

Back in 2016, Jarryd Hayne chose to retire from the National Football League to pursue his Olympic dream and return to his his original sport on a permanent basis. The NSW Criminal Code states for "circumstances of aggravation" means circumstances in which "the alleged offender intentionally or recklessly inflicts actual bodily harm on the alleged victim".

NSW Police confirmed the charge, which came after a 26-year-old woman lodged a complaint to the NRL Integrity Unit earlier this year.

Welfare officers from the Eels are understood to have been in contact with Hayne about the allegations which have rattled him.

Cops investigated the matter and ultimately determined there was enough evidence to charge Hayne with a crime - "aggravated sexual assault inflicting actual bodily harm".

A two-time Dally M Medallist, Hayne is one of the biggest names in the NRL thanks largely to his magical run to help Parramatta to the 2009 grand final. 'The Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad is comprised of detectives who are specially trained to investigate matters against children and adults, including sexual assault, serious physical abuse, and extreme cases of neglect'. He has also played American football, running out of the San Francisco 49ers in late 2015, and rugby union sevens at the highest levels.

"Detectives have also spoken with a taxi driver, who claims Hayne said he'd be back in 20 minutes, as they pulled up outside the home".
