Jarryd Hayne again found guilty of sexual assault

Former rugby league superstar Jarryd Hayne has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman in Newcastle for the second time.

This follows two previous trials, in which the first ended in a hung jury, and the jury in his second trial found him guilty of performing oral and digital sex on the complainant without her consent. That conviction was set aside on appeal with a re-trial ordered.

In the third trial, Hayne once again pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting the Newcastle woman on the evening of the 2018 grand final.

This guilty verdict marks an ignominious end to his sporting career, which included a stint in Gridiron.

Hayne will be re-sentenced, and further time in prison is likely.
