The Florida man who hacked into Scarlett Johansson’s nude photos from her cell phone has agreed to plead guilty in the case. Earsucker has learned that 35-year-old Christoper Chaney has said that he has agreed to plead guilty to nine counts, including wiretapping and unauthorized access to a computer.
For his crimes, he can face up to 60 years in prison.
In addition to hacking Scarlett, he also hacked into the email accounts of Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis. Scarlett and Christina’s photo leaks were super racy, while Mila’s was only rumored.
A hearing in the case was set for Monday. Chaney had been arrested as part of a year-long investigation of celebrity hacking, which authorities referred to as Operation Hackerazzi. Prosecutors have revealed that there were more than 50 victims in the investigation.
Scarlett previously spoke of the photo leak, saying that the photos were for her former husband, Ryan Reynolds. She told David Letterman, “The hacker was there constantly, every twenty seconds. I don’t know just sitting there all pasty and sweaty and pervy and weird. And that’s the creepiest thing for me. They were out there for all the world to see. Which was, uh, unfortunate, really.”
