    Woman raped live on Internet; suspect in custody

    Phoenix police arrested a man in Phoenix on Monday on suspicion of raping an unconscious woman live on a popular video hosting Web site.

    According to a court document, on Feb. 26, 2009, at about 5 a.m., 20-year-old Jonathan Hock set up the webcam built into his laptop and broadcast live as he sexually assaulted a woman whom he knew for less than a month as she lay in bed unconscious. The victim had reportedly been asleep for up to six hours before the assault occurred.

    While being interviewed by Phoenix police, the woman said she became aware of the assault after friends text messaged her about the video. According to a court document, the woman then found pictures on the Web site of Hock lying next to her as she was asleep and naked from the waist down.

    Phoenix police issued a search warrant for the Web site's content to try to obtain the live video of the assault. In the video, Hock reportedly made comments about him being able to commit the assault without her knowledge while he performed various sexual acts, according to the court document.

    After viewing the five minute video, Phoenix police arrested Hock and booked him on charges of sexual assault and surreptitious video taping.

    Grand jury indictment proceedings flawed:


    Reported by: Associated Press
    Last Update: 1:09 pm

    MESA, AZ -- Authorities say the case of a Phoenix man accused of raping a passed-out woman and showing it live on the Internet has been delayed.

    A Maricopa County Superior Court judge has ruled that prosecutors violated the due process rights of 21-year-old Johnathan Hock in grand jury proceedings.
    ....
    The judge's recent ruling effectively dismisses the charges and forces prosecutors to obtain a new indictment. Should that happen, Hock is scheduled for trial in August.
