Acquitted in Sexual Assault Case

Kuggeleijn had to stand trial two times in a rape case but he was acquitted of charges on both occasions, in 2016 and 2017. His clean chit from the courts was supported by the New Zealand Cricket Board who said that they respected the courts’ decision and did not wish to relitigate past events.
