Jarryd Hayne’s US rape case ends in civil settlement

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.

Hayne, 31, appeared briefly in the Newcastle Local Court on Wednesday before magistrate John Chicken.

Mr Chicken said he had not been "living in a bubble" and understood Hayne was facing a second aggravated sexual assault charge.

Defence lawyer Leo Premutico confirmed the new charge had been laid against Hayne and asked for two changes to his bail conditions, involving his residential address and where he would report to police.
