Christopher Chaney, the man who hacked into email accounts of celebrities such as Scarlett Johnasson, Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis, will be sentenced on Monday in Florida.
In March, Chaney plead guilty to nine counts to cyber-related hacking, including unauthorized access to a computer and wiretapping.
As we previously reported, the FBI performed an 11-month investigation on Chaney called “Operation Hackerazzi,” and it was revealed that he had accessed information of at least 50 people in the entertainment industry.
He posted nude pictures of Johansson online, which she said at the time were meant for her now ex-husband Ryan Reynolds.
She has said about the incident Just because you’re in the spotlight or just because you’re an actor or making films or whatever doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy,” Johansson said. “I think no matter what the context, if that is besieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong.”
According to The Associated Press, federal prosecutors are suggesting at 6-year prison sentence for Chaney for his crimes.
