Fomer UFC and PRIDE punching bag Joe Son charged with gang rape

One-time UFC lovable loser Joseph Hyungmin Son (0-4) has been charged with multiple felonies after DNA evidence tied him to a brutal gang rape that took place in 1990 according to the good folks over at TMZ.

Son, 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.

Son is being held on $1 million bail and has been charged with the following:

-Five felony counts of rape
-Two felony counts of forcible sodomy
-Two felony counts of sodomy in concert by force
-Seven felony counts of forcible oral copulation
-One felony count of sexual penetration by foreign object by force.

If convicted, Son faces a maximum sentence of 275 years to life.
