Scarlett Johansson email hacker Christopher Chaney is guilty of making the internet happy
THE Florida man who goes by the name of Christopher Chaney is going to plead guilty after being accused of hacking into the email accounts of film stars Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis and other celebrities so he could share all their boobies with us.
Chaney will plead guilty on Monday to nine criminal counts, including unauthorized access to a computer and wiretapping, according to a plea agreement filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. The maximum sentence he’s facing is 60 years in prison, which is weird, because the bloke who killed a young black man for absolutely no reason isn’t getting anything done to him at all.
God bless America, eh?
Anyway, Chaney was charged with 26 counts of cyber-related crimes for hacking into the e-mails of Johansson, Kunis and Christina Aguilera. Other victims were identified only by their initials: B.P., J.A., L.B. and L.S.
Anyone else thinking that there’s some photos of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, together, in there? Just us? You can trying guessing the others.
In the plea agreement, prosecutors say that between November of 2010 and October of 2011 Chaney hacked into the accounts of more than 50 people in the entertainment industry. He got access to a whole bunch of scripts, photos, business contacts and such by, remarkably, getting the password questions correct by searching for the information online.
The day after he was arrested, Chaney told a TV station that he became addicted to prying into the affairs of celebrities and apologized. “I was almost relieved months ago when they (the FBI) came and took my computer … because I didn’t know how to stop.”
