(Son may use Keith Hackney’s nut shots at UFC 4 to as a defense to explain his overactive libido.)
I’ve been following UFC fighter-turned type-casted actor Joe Son’s rape case for a while and had regular correspondence with the Huntington Beach Police Department over the past few months about the upcoming trial, but around the beginning of October I was passed on to the Orange County District Attorney’s office who I was told would be able to answer my questions from that point on as they had taken over the case.
I’m not sure why, but the OCDA’s office never returned a single one of my calls or emails, despite numerous attempts to get further info on Son’s case from them.
Today, I remembered that Son’s trial was to start some time in November, so I checked my notes and realized that it actually started two weeks ago on November 4. I had it incorrectly written down as starting on November 14.
Accessing the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s website as I had several times over the past six months (and was able to do so as recently as three weeks ago) to see if there was any new info on Son’s case, I was surprised to find that his prisoner number showed no such person in the database and that there was no record that he ever existed in the system.
I’m going to try to get in touch with the DA’s office to see what’s going on, but I found it kind of odd that nobody wants to divulge anything about the case and that he mysteriously disappeared from California State’s records.
In the meantime, for those of you who haven’t read the court’s synopsis of the case, you can read it after the jump.
