An ex-rugby player who briefly played for the San Francisco 49ers was recently convicted guilty of sexual assault against a woman in 2018. Jarryd Hayne was on trial for the same offense for the third time.
In connection with the 2018 assault, a jury in Sydney, Australia, found him guilty of two counts of engaging in sex without consent. After a woman disclosed that she had been hurt as a result of his assault on her in September 2018, he was detained in November 2018. He was then accused of engaging in aggravated unconsented sex.
