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 was sentenced Wednesday in Maricopa County Superior Court. Besides prison time, the 22-year-old Hock also received lifetime probation and was ordered to register as a sex offender.

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

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