  • last month
Former rugby league star Jarryd Hayne was walked free from a Sydney prison after the court of criminal appeal quashed his sexual assault convictions. It is the latest development in an extraordinary legal saga, in which Hayne was tried three times, over allegations he raped a Newcastle woman on the night of the 2018 NRL Grand Final. The Director of Public Prosecutions is yet to decided whether he will face a fourth trial.
