SJ - March 22, 2021

Former 49ers running back and rugby star Jarryd Hayne has been found guilty of sexual intercourse without consent in Australia.  He now faces 14 years in prison as a result.

The incident took place back in 2018 and caused the woman to suffer injuries as a result.

From TMZ Sports:

A jury in Sydney, Australia found the 33-year-old guilty of two counts of sexual intercourse without consent ... after a woman had accused Hayne of getting violent with her in bed in Sept. 2018.

The woman claimed Hayne had performed sexual acts on her without her consent ... and caused her serious injuries.

Hayne -- who was ultimately charged with aggravated sexual intercourse without consent as well as two counts of sexual intercourse without consent -- had denied the allegations, insisting it all was consensual and explaining the injuries were caused by accident.

What a waste of talent....  Not much else to say about this.  If he's guilty, and he's been found guilty, then he should serve his time.
