A Phoenix man accused of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman while broadcasting it live on the Internet has been sentenced to 2½ years in prison.

Johnathan Richard Hock got his sentence Wednesday in Maricopa County Superior Court. In addition to the prison time, the 22-year-old Hock also was sentenced to lifetime probation and must register as a sex offender.

Hock pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted sexual assault and one count of voyeurism.

Authorities say Hock sexually assaulted the woman, who he’d been dating for about two weeks, after she became drunk and passed out at her home on Feb. 26.

Police say he broadcast the assault during a live feed on a social networking site, and that online witnesses called police to report it.
