To millions of moviegoers he was Doctor Evil's henchman Random Task.

But now a 40-year-old Orange County actor famous from an "Austin Powers" movie will be spending life in state prison in connection with a 1990 Christmas Eve gang rape and torture of a woman taking a walk to see the seasonal lights.

Joseph Hyungmin Son was found guilty Aug. 25 of felony torture, an offense that carries a life term without possibility of parole. The actor was originally charged three years ago with numerous sex crimes but because of a statute of limitations, prosecutors eventually won a conviction on torture.

The crime unfolded seven years before the 1997 movie "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery."

According to prosecutors, a woman walking back to her apartment alone with her dog after going to look at Christmas lights with a relative and friend was stopped by Son about 12:30 a.m. on Christmas Eve 1990. Son asked her for directions and then with another man dragged her to their car, threw her in the back and drove away.

Son and the other man told her they were driving to Compton, pistol-whipped her and repeatedly threatened to kill her. Prosecutors said Son then repeatedly raped, sodomized and forced the victim to orally copulate him in the back of the car. He also tortured her with a firearm. Son's cohort Santiago Lopez Gaitan, 40, of San Antonio raped the woman.

I find it sad that torture gets life in prison without possibility of parole while rape only gets 17 years.

I can see an argument that rape = torture as well.  I guess torture was all they could get him on due to statute of limitations which is also kinda crappy.

I'm just impressed that he was sentenced 21 years after the incident happened thanks to DNA evidence.

I'll always remember him from the time when Keith Hackney repeatedly punched him in the nuts back at UFC 4.

Jeebus, did no one vet the guy before hiring him for Austin Powers?   icon_eek  It would seem that simply asking his neighbors would have resulted in a "Yeah, that's guy's pretty much a homicidal maniac."
