Fomer UFC punching bag Joe Son convicted of torture in gang rape case

via iamkoream.com

One-time UFC lovable loser Joseph Hyungmin Son has been convicted of torture after DNA evidence tied him to a brutal gang rape that took place in 1990.

Son (0-4), also known to non-MMA fans as "Random Task" from Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, is probably best known in the fight community for having his balls demolished by Keith Hackney back at UFC 4 en route to a first round submission loss.

After pleading guilty to felony vandalism in May of 2008, Son was required to submit a DNA sample as part of his guilty plea. That sample connected him to an unsolved gang rape that took place over 18 years ago.

According to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, the victim was pistol-whipped, raped, threatened with death and penetrated by a firearm before eventually being blindfolded and released naked.

KTLA.com has more:

[Son] was initially charged with multiple sexual assault charges and faced a maximum sentence of 275 years to life in prison. However, many of those charges were dropped because the statute of limitations had expired.

A co-defendant in the case pleaded guilty to rape, kidnapping and other charges, and was sentenced to 17 years in and four months in prison.

Son will be sentenced on Sept. 17 and is facing a maximum penalty of 15 years to life.
