Hayne Facing 20 Years In Prison Over Sexual Assault Claims
NRL player Jarryd Hayne has been charged over the alleged sexual assault of a woman in NSW.
Hayne, 30, was charged with aggravated sexual assault and inflicting actual bodily harm after handing himself into Ryde police station on Monday afternoon.
A woman claims she suffered injuries during a sexual encounter with Hayne in the NSW Hunter Valley and that she had photographs to back up her story.
It's understood the alleged victim was interviewed by the NRL's integrity unit before the matter was referred to police.
Police allege the assault of the 26-year-old woman took place in a Hunter region home on September 30.
Hayne has been granted strict conditional bail to appear at Burwood Local Court on December 10.
The former Parramatta and NSW origin star is currently out of contract and the allegations will severely damage his prospects of a new NRL deal.
Hayne, a two-time Dally M Player of the Year, is also facing sexual assault allegations from 2015 when he was playing NFL in America for the San Francisco 49ers.
Hayne, has denied the US allegations and will defend proceedings in a trail set for 2020.
The alleged victim claimed she was a virgin and was raped after meeting Hayne in a bar.
