US man admits to Internet sex assault crime


PHOENIX: A man here accused of sexually assaulting his unconscious girlfriend and broadcasting the attack live on the Internet has pleaded guilty to three charges.

Jonathan Richard Hock, 22, pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted sexual assault and one count of voyeurism in Maricopa County Superior Court.

Hock was arrested in June 2009 after police say he set up a computer webcam and sexually assaulted his girlfriend of two weeks in her bedroom as she was unconscious from drinking alcohol. The incident occurred in February, and the woman was 20.

Police say the video was watched repeatedly until the site it was posted on removed it. The site provided police with a copy of the video. — AP
