'Austin Powers' Villain

Convicted of Torture In Rape Case

8/29/2011 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0829_Joseph-Hyungmin-Son-mugshot
The guy who played "Random Task" in "Austin Powers" -- the guy who throws a shoe -- has been convicted of torturing a 20-year-old woman back in 1990.

Joseph Hyungmin Son
was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of participating in a gang rape of a woman on Christmas Eve ... when DNA linked him to the crime.

According to prosecutors, Son and another man abducted the woman, dragged her into the back of a car, pistol whipped her and threatened to shoot her.

The victim claimed Son and the other man repeatedly raped her, and sexually penetrated her with a gun before releasing her in Compton naked.

Son is due back in court on September 19 for sentencing -- and faces a maximum of 15 years to life in prison.

I hope they bring out the gimp and bring him out often in whichever prison he'll rot.

I also hope that woman got counseling and got her life back and can now have peace of mind knowing that others won't have to suffer what she's suffered or worse.

Note to all the famehos and quick cash seekers like that Bormann chick. Everytime you sell your dumb, embarrassing, laced with WTF stupidity stories trying to leech off some stupid drunk celebrity, you make it harder for REAL victims, be it of famous or non-famous monsters like this one to seek and find justice. Go the f. away and learn something from this lady.

Why did this guy even get out of jail? He shouldn't have gotten bail for this kind of crime. What the hell is wrong with the L.A. District Attorney?

It would be nice if he would get a repeat of the UFC fight he was in ages ago (UFC 3 or 4 I think). His fight was famous because his opponent punched him in the groin over, and over, and over again (which was legal back then). It was really cringe-worthy, but now if I watch it again I'll be laughing my butt off knowing he deserved it!

Could somebody help me understand explain to my, why in hell has this guy been allowed to walk the streets, when they have DNA evidence linking him to the rape FOR THREE YEARS.

California your courts SUCK-or do you have to suck to get any justice?:

ANSWER: No, but it helps---but you shell out the dough and we'll have his back, give the press stale information-pretend we're doing an investigation-hook him up with Cadillac plea bargain deal-plus, if the public isn'*****ching we'll contrive a bogus probation plan for, usually, 2-3yrs. In his case we'd probably would have to go for 5yrs. After the heat is down, t then his attorney would partition to have the probation lighten. Not worry, it'll be approve, most of the judges are worse then the "crooks" and he can go back to his life as if nothing happened. It's call the "Green Plan", the "green" is exactly what you think it means.
