Police: Man Sexually Assaults Unconscious Woman Live On Internet

Authorities in Arizona say a man has been accused of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman and broadcasting it live on the Internet.

A statement filed in court in Phoenix says 20-year-old Jonathan Richard Hock was arrested Monday on charges of sexual assault, kidnapping and taking a surreptitious photo.

The court document said Hock set up a computer Web camera and sexually assaulted the 20-year-old woman in her bedroom in February while she was unconscious from drinking alcohol.

Police said in the court document that the video was watched repeatedly until the Web site where it was posted removed it. It said the Web site service gave a copy of the video to police.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office didn't respond to a request to interview Hock.

    I'm tired of hearing the phrase, "what is this world coming to." This world has improved a lot since biblical times when God spent the first five books of the Bible wiping people out. The world is still bad, but if you skim through your Bible to see how terrible and violent things used to be, you'll notice the improvements.

    To Buzz, You know how some people do stuff like that on video and still get out of trouble, cause they have a lawyer to help get them out of all that. Yes it's already considered proven by lots of people including myself. What I am saying is that it wont be considered proven if he gets out of this because of that lawyer.

    The sheriff of Maricopa County is recognized as the toughest in the country. He is the one that dresses his inmates in pink, they live in tents, and he is tough on immigration (he is being investigated by home land security for abuse).

    Hey Sam - What do you mean prove it, It is on video. With that said, we'll spend hundreds of thousands on this perv, following the "legal process". He'll get a slap and a "dont do it again buddy". Oh well. Buzz-

    Well he must be a dork,ugly,sob,and mental. there are plenty that gives it free and will make noises and all that. he is sick and should be charged with rape and kidnaping and using the internet to exploit. what is this world coming to. the people who saw it should have reported it immediately. but there are sites out there on some sites that do just that. there is no law to stop this garbage.

    Women watch out! Others won't do it for you. But when you put yourself out there things may happen. ( No one has the right to exploit any one under any circumstances ever.) I am not saying she asked for it but take some reponsibility for where you get drunk and how drunk you get and never leave your drink alone!

    This guy is a creep and must be proud to be. Send him to the slammer for a few years if it's proven.
