Hacker Who Leaked Scarlett Johansson Photos Sentenced to Ten Years

Florida's Christopher Chaney received a ten-year prison sentence on Monday, having pleaded guilty to hacking into celebrity e-mails and spreading their nude photos online. Chaney's self-described addiction affected Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera, and dozens more. "I don't know what else to say except I'm sorry. This will never happen again," Chaney said in his sentencing. He has been ordered to pay $66,179 to his victims. Earlier this year, Johansson told Vogue, "Somebody stole something from me ... It’s sick. I don’t want people like that to slide.”
