Jarryd Hayne Facing 20 Years In Prison Over Sexual Assault Claims

Jarryd Hayne was quickly driven away after being released by police

The 30-year-old Hayne went to a Sydney police station with his manager on Monday and was later charged over the alleged sexual assault of a 26-year-old woman on september 30, the night of the NRL final between Sydney Roosters and Melbourne Storm.

A complaint about the incident was first made to the NRL Integrity Unit, before it was referred to the sex crimes squad.

It is the second sexual assault allegation levelled at the embattled rugby league player, who is now fighting a civil lawsuit in the United States over allegations he had non-consensual sex with a woman in December 2015, while he was in the U.S. playing NFL for the San Francisco 49ers.

Hayne is now without an NRL club after his season ended with the Parramatta Eels.

Hayne will face Burwood Local Court on December 10.

Police will allege Hayne took the woman into a bedroom and ripped her clothes off, without consent.

A spokeswoman for NSW Police issued a statement to local media outlets saying - "Police are investigating following reports a woman was sexually assaulted by a 30-year-old man in late September".

If found guilty, Hayne is facing a maximum sentence of 20 years after being charged with aggravated sexual assault and inflicting actual bodily harm. She was interviewed by the sex crime squad detectives last week.

Hayne's representative Wayne Beavis opted not to comment when contacted by AAP after the allegations arose.

The Dragons, who were the only club talking to Hayne, are understood to have gone cold on a prospective deal for the former megastar in recent days.

A two-time Dally M Medallist, Hayne is one of the biggest names in the NRL thanks largely to his magical run to help Parramatta to the 2009 grand final.

"Detectives have also spoken with a taxi driver, who claims Hayne said he'd be back in 20 minutes, as they pulled up outside the home". He has played 11 Tests for Australia, 23 State of Origins for NSW and scored 121 tries in 214 NRL games.

But he has also created headlines away from the NRL, in particular when he left the Eels to play in the National Football League for theSan Francisco 49ers in late 2015.

After an investigation, he was not charged, but she is still suing him in civil court.

Hayne announced his retirement from the 49ers in March 2016.
