A man accused of raping a 20-year-old woman during a live webcast on the Internet while she was unconscious was indicted on sex-related offenses, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office announced Tuesday.

Johnathon Richard Hock, 20, was indicted by a Maricopa County grand jury on Friday on two counts of sexual assault and one count of voyeurism, according to the county attorney's office.

According to a search warrant affidavit, Hock and the woman were drinking at a gathering in a Phoenix home Feb. 25, when she decided to go to bed about midnight.

At 5 a.m., Feb. 26, Hock went into her bedroom and set up a laptop with a camera built in, signed on to the Web site and proceeded to rape her, according to the search warrant affidavit. The Tribune is withholding the name of the woman and the Web site to protect her identity.

Hock, who was arrested by Phoenix police on June 1, is being held in a Maricopa County jail without bond.
