Jarryd Hayne jailed ahead of sentencing hearing after being found guilty of rape

Justice Richard Button sent Hayne into custody at the New South Wales supreme court on Friday.

Hayne had “remarkably” remained on bail after the 35-year-old was found guilty on two counts of sexual intercourse without consent earlier in April, the judge said.

Hayne sexually assaulted a woman with his hands and mouth after attending her home on the night of the 2018 NRL grand final. The woman cannot be identified.
