Hayne charged over Grand Final night sexual assault

Jarryd Hayne

The charge carries a maximum 20-year jail term if Hayne is convicted.

He handed himself in to Ryde Police station in Sydney around 4pm.

The 26-year-old woman claimed she and Hayne were having consensual sex but she "withdrew her consent".

The alleged incident occurred on September 30 in the NSW Hunter region.

The woman initially made a complaint to the NRL Integrity Unit, which passed the matter into NSW Police.

Over the weekend, Hayne hired Salim Mehajer's former lawyer Ramy Qutami.

Hayne's manager Wayne Beavis and former Parramatta Eels teammates have not spoken to him since news of the allegations first broke on Thursday night.

Mandy Moore ties knot
After the ceremony, guests then reportedly went to a private event space called The Fig House for the reception. News as "an intimate backyard wedding at Mandy's home that started just after sundown on Sunday evening".

Detectives interviewed the woman last week.

7News reports Hayne has refused to answer any questions and charges are set to be laid.

Jarryd Hayne is a professional rugby league footballer who most recently played for the Parramatta Eels in the NRL.

He signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2015 but didn't get much playing time on the field, as he accumulated just 79 offensive yards on 23 touches with three fumbles in eight games for the Niners.

The former Parramatta and NSW origin star is now out of contract and the allegations will severely damage his prospects of a new NRL deal.

Detectives have now charged the 30-year-old with aggravated sexual assault and inflict actual bodily harm.

Hayne is also now battling civil litigation in the U.S., over allegations that he raped a woman in December 2015, when he playing National Football League with the San Francisco 49ers.
