Man who hacked Scarlett Johansson's e-mail sentenced to 10 years
If the ethics of hacking celebrities’ e-mail accounts doesn’t stop you from doing it, perhaps a decade-long jail sentence will.
On Monday, a Florida man found guilty of gaining access to 50 e-mail accounts—including those of Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Renee Olstead, and others—was sentenced on federal charges to 10 years in jail. Chaney pled guilty to nine counts of "aggravated identity theft," "wiretapping," and other crimes earlier this year.
The judge in the case was S. James Otero, who also ordered Christopher Chaney to pay over $66,000 restitution. Otero said the defendant’s actions constituted a “callous disregard to the victims.”
