Jarryd Hayne was jailed earlier today after having his bail revoked as he awaits sentencing after being convicted of sexually assaulting a woman.
Under New South Wales law, a person who is found guilty of an offence and will be sentenced to a fulltime jail term must be refused bail unless they can establish special or exceptional circumstances.
Hayne will be sentenced to a prison term on 8 May after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman in 2018.
He was emotionless throughout the two hour and 45-minute hearing but he became emotional as he embraced his wife Amellia Bonnici.
The pair hugged for several minutes before he was handcuffed.
Ms Bonnici sobbed as he was taken from the court.
“You’re innocent,” one female supporter yelled. “Stay strong big fella,” another male supporter said.
