Hope he gets raped in prison…wait, no I hope they send him to Washington State and give him a feminist judge.

Joseph Hyungmin Son, 40, who played Dr. Evil’s sidekick “Random Task” in the first “Austin Powers” movie, was convicted of torture last week in connection with the 1990 abduction and gang rape of a 20-year-old California woman. The Orange County woman was walking her dog on Christmas Eve and looking at holiday lights in the neighborhood when she was snatched off the street and attacked, KTLA reported. Son was accused along with one other suspect of holding the victim at gun point and raping her numerous times as well as sexually assaulting her with the weapon. The victim’s lawyer claimed the assailants then released the woman naked with her pants tied around her eyes. Son wasn’t arrested in connection with the crime until 18 years after the incident. In 2008, after violating probation on vandalism charge, he was charged with numerous counts of assault when his DNA was found to match a sample from the victim. Many of those charges were ultimately dropped due to the amount of time that had elapsed since the alleged incident, KTLA reported. Son is slated to be sentenced on September 19, and faces 15 years to life in prison.
