Jarryd Hayne has strongly denied sexually assaulting a woman in 2015 during his time at the San Francisco 49ers.

Civil lawsuit papers filed in the Santa Clara County court today allege Hayne engaged in non-consensual sexual intercourse with a Santa Clara woman in December 2015.

The statement below was issued by Ramy Qutami from Madison Marcus Law Firm on behalf of Hayne.

“We act for Mr Jarryd Hayne. We are instructed to issue the statement below: Mr Hayne and his management are aware of recent media speculation in relation to a civil complaint filed in the United States of America making certain allegations in relation to an event which allegedly occurred in 2015 whilst playing for the San Francisco 49ers.

“Mr Hayne has not been served with any proceedings or formal complaint relating to the incident.

“Mr Hayne previously addressed a complaint made to the District Attorney’s office in the County of Santa Clara, California in 2016 and the District Attorney did not proceed any further with the matter due to insufficient evidence to substantiate the allegations. Mr Hayne provided all reasonable assistance to the District Attorney with that investigation.

“Mr Hayne unequivocally and vehemently denies the allegations which are the subject of the civil complaint. Mr Hayne will not be making any further comment in relation to this matter.”


  1. Not the biggest Hayne fan but give this guy a break. This is the US where even looking at a girl can get you accused for harrasment..

  2. This woman claims to have proof of his guilt.
    If she has proof why didn’t she show it when this went to court?
    If she has proof and he did it then he gets what he deserves.
    So far all I see is a woman after a pay day.
    All this does is make it harder for women who really have been sexual assaulted to be taken seriously.

    • “All this does is make it harder for women who really have been sexual assaulted to be taken seriously.”

      Precisely. That was point I was trying to make on the other Hayne story, well put. It does women in general a disservice when stories of this nature are fabricated for attention, out of spite or for a pay day. As the saying goes; “Justice delayed is justice denied”. I can never understand how it takes an age for serious allegations of this nature to reach the light of day. Surely any victim would want to want to seek justice at the earliest possible date (especially while evidence is fresh and irrefutable).
