Jarryd Hayne’s US rape case ends in civil settlement

Jarryd Hayne has reportedly reached settlement with the victim of his alleged rape in the United States.

Fairfax Media reports the civil case against Hayne has come to a close after the parties agreed to a settlement.

The former rugby league superstar was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in San Jose in 2015.

At the time he was contracted to NFL franchise San Francisco 49ers.

There was insufficient evidence to pursue a criminal case but the victim filed a civil suit in December 2017, which has now been finalised.

Hayne was playing with NRL club Parramatta until last year.

In July, he pleaded not guilty to sexual assault in a Newcastle court over a separate alleged incident involving a woman in the Hunter region.

His rape trial will be held in May next year.

It’s alleged he assaulted a 26-year-old woman at her home on September 30.
