UFC Vet Joe Son Charged In Gang Rape

Joe Son, who fought in UFC 4 back in December 1994 (famously receiving a brutal beating about the groin area from Keith Hackney), is being charged in connection with a gang rape that took place in 1990 after the former fighter and actor was arrested for a different crime all together.

TMZ.com has the scoop. Apparently Joe Son was arrested and charged with felony vandalism back in May. Part of the process had him submit a DNA sample and the investigators on the case were able to link his DNA to that of an unsolved gang rape from 1990 in which “a woman was pistol-whipped, raped, threatened with death and eventually blindfolded and released naked.”

Here’s the count of what he is being charged with in relation to the crime: 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, and one felony count of sexual penetration by foreign object by force.

If convicted, Joe Son faces a maximum penalty of 275 years to life in prison.
