Jarryd Hayne has been accused of rape during his time in the US playing for the San Francisco 49ers.
Civil lawsuit papers filed in the Santa Clara County court allege Hayne engaged in non-consensual sexual intercourse with a Santa Clara woman in December 2015.
It’s understood the woman didn’t report the alleged rape to police until May 2016.
The District Attorney’s Office reviewed the case and rejected it for insufficient evidence on Oct. 25, 2016.
The district attorney, according to the suit, said that there was not enough evidence to prove the crime of rape beyond a reasonable doubt.
Hayne played one season and eight games with the 49ers in 2015.
