The AP reports that the so-called “Hollywood hacker,” a creeper convicted of cracking the email accounts of starlets like Scarlet Johansson and Mila Kunis, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. Mr. Chaney pled guilty to several charges, including wiretapping.
Just goes to show that crime doesn’t pay–especially when you splash your wrongdoing all over the celebugossip blogs.
Between 2010 and 2011, Mr. Chaney went on a year-long tear, hacking into scores of Hollywood types’ email accounts and leaking intimate photos across the Internet. Even for a population of people used to outlets like TMZ watching their every move, it was intrusive.
The judge delivered the news to Christopher Chaney after the court heard from Ms. Johansson in a videotaped statement described as “tearful.” Another victim, Christina Aguilera, released her own statement saying, “That feeling of security can never be given back and there is no compensation that can restore the feeling one has from such a large invasion of privacy.”
This from someone who’s had tabloids producing fevered fantasies about her comings and goings since she was a tween.
We can’t help but wonder what Hunter Moore makes of this dude.
