Feds recommend jail, fines for Scarlett Johansson hacker
Prosecutors want the man who broke into the email accounts of Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis and other celebrities to receive a hefty prison fine and pay tens of thousands of dollars to his victims.
In a filing, U.S. attorney requested that Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Fla., serve 71 months in prison and pay a $150,000 fine. He would also should pay Johansson $66,179.46 in compensation after hijacking nude images of the actress from her personal email account.
Chaney is scheduled to be sentenced next month. Following an 11-month police investigation dubbed “Operation Hackerazzi,” Chaney initially pleaded innocent in November after being charged in a 26-count indictment with accessing and damaging protected computers without authorization, wiretapping and aggravated identity theft.
