Former San Francisco 49ers running back and current rugby star Jarryd Hayne has been accused of rape during his time in the NFL in a new lawsuit filed in California on Tuesday. Darryl Matsuda and Jason Green of the Bay Area News Group reported details of the suit. The woman says Hayne assaulted her in December 2015. The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office investigated the case and declined to press charges in October 2016. "The victim was a young impressionable woman out with friends in a location and environment she thought she could trust only to find that Mr. Hayne used her level of intoxication and his physical stature to deprive her of the ability to make a personal decision about whether or not she wanted to have sex," Micha Star Liberty, an attorney for the woman, said. "As a result, she suffered greatly emotionally and physically."
