Rugby star Jarryd Hayne, who spent a year playing football in the United States for the San Francisco 49ers, has been accused of rape diuring his time in the U.S., according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
The claims were revealed in court papers filed in Santa Clara, California, which allege that Hayne raped a woman referred to as “Ms. V” in December 2015. She allegedly first reported the alleged rape to police in May 2016. The District Attorney’s Office in Santa Clara had ruled that not enough evidence existed at the time. (source)
