PHOENIX (AP) -- A Phoenix man accused of sexually assaulting his unconscious girlfriend and broadcasting the attack live on the Internet has pleaded guilty to three charges.

Twenty-two-year-old Johnathan Richard Hock pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of attempted sexual assault and one count of voyeurism in Maricopa County Superior Court.

Hock was arrested in June 2009 after police say he set up a computer Web camera and sexually assaulted his girlfriend of two weeks in her bedroom as she was unconscious from drinking alcohol on Feb. 26. The woman was 20 years old.

Police say the video was watched repeatedly until the site it was posted on removed it. The site provided police with a copy of the video.
