Convicted rapist Jarryd Hayne will spend another two years in prison after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman and Jailed.
Jarryd Hayne jailed for 3 years for rape of woman.
After more than four years and three trials, former NRL star Jarryd Hayne has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman on grand final night in Newcastle, Australia.
When Jarryd Hayne approached a house on the outskirts of Newcastle on the evening of September 30, 2018, he had no idea the 46-minute encounter would lead to him spending another three years away from his family and behind bars.
Once a talented rugby league star, the 35-year-old faces the prospect of returning to Cooma Correctional Centre and picking up one of his old jobs – sewing clothes or in the prison laundry room.
Hayne, now referred to as prisoner 661736, is spending his days isolated in a 3m by 4m cell, with only 25 minutes of outside time allowed to walk around and read his bible.
The former Dally M winner has suffered a remarkable fall from grace, with his life now a far cry from the famous footballer who drunkenly approached the front door of a Fletcher house on the night of the NRL grand final in 2018 at 9.07pm.
When he emerged 46 minutes later, Hayne left a young woman in her room with blood on her bedspread and painful injuries to her vagina.
Now, almost five years after the fleeting encounter, the infamous incident has led to him being jailed for the second time.
Hayne has been used to being a household name, beginning his first-grade career with the Parramatta Eels in 2006.
Hayne would only last one season, during which he was accused of leaving a US woman bleeding from her vagina following an alleged sexual assault in December 2015.
The woman brought a civil case against Hayne in 2017 as there wasn’t enough evidence for criminal charges to be laid. Hayne settled for almost $100,000 in 2019.
