Fiend showed attack on web

An Arizona man accused of sexually assaulting his unconscious girlfriend and broadcasting the attack live on the internet has pleaded guilty to three charges.

Jonathan Hock ( 22), from Phoenix, admitted two counts of attempted sexual assault and one count of voyeurism.

He was arrested last June after police said he set up a web camera and assaulted his 20-year-old girlfriend of two weeks in her bedroom while she was unconscious from drinking alcohol. The video was watched repeatedly until the site it was posted on removed it and provided police with a copy.
