'Austin Powers' Actor Gets Life Imprisonment for Rape Charges


Joseph Hyuangmin Son has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the torture and rape of a 20-year-old woman.

The actor, best known for his supporting role as Random Task in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, received his conviction last month.

The incident in question took place on Christmas Eve 1990, in California, when Son and a male accomplice attacked a woman at gunpoint before continually raping her in a nearby car.

"My emotional scars are intense. My twenties were stripped from my life as I relearned how to walk, see, hear, and cope with the outside world again," Son's victim said, in a statement released to the court. "Joseph Son not only cost me my job at my salon, but also my college savings, not to mention the impact it's made on celebrating Christmas year after year."

Despite Son's life sentence, the residing judge suggested that he could eventually be eligible for parole.


The post previously made about this was before the judge made a final decision on his sentence.
