Jack de Belin remains stood down pending decision from DPP over potential third trialJack de Belin remains subject to the NRL's no-fault stand down policy, despite the St George Illawarra forward being cleared of one count of sexually assaulting a woman.
The jury in de Belin's trial was unable to reach a verdict on five other charges, and has been discharged after deliberating for more than five days.
The former Origin forward will now need to wait for the Department of Public Prosecutions to decide whether or not to proceed with a third trial.
Nine's court reporter Kelly Fedor says the DPP is likely to confirm later this month whether or not it will pursue a third trial.
As de Belin is yet to be cleared of the remaining five charges, he's still stood down under the NRL's policy.https://wwos.nine.com.au/nrl/jack-de-belin-no-fault-stand-down-st-george-illawarra-rape-charge/"As de Belin is yet to be cleared of the remaining five charges..."
So what does that mean? He is guilty until he proves himself innocent of the other 5 charges?
What a joke our criminal justice system has become.
The woke left refused to accept the verdict in Pell when it went to the High Court. The worst false imprisonment since Lindy Chamberlain.
They won a dubious decision in Jarrod Hayne (she said v he said - she won), yet when Shorten (she said v he said - he won) wins they remain mute.
They tried to have Christian Porter brought down on extremely dubious evidence.
Now de Belin has to prove his innocence twice!!
No doubt about the woke femi-nazis. They are having a great time of it recently - except for Porter where the ABC lawyers have ordered Milligan to shut her big mouth.
