The guy who hacked Scarlett Johansson’s phone gets 10 years in prison

Christopher Chaney, the guy who reveled in hacking the phones of celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson and Christina Aguilera was sentenced today to ten years in prison for his shenanigans. 

U.S. District Judge S. James Otero sentenced Christopher Chaney after hearing from a tearful Johansson in a videotaped statement.

The case included the revelation that nude photos taken by Johansson of herself and meant for her then-husband Ryan Reynolds were leaked online.

“I have been truly humiliated and embarrassed,” Johansson said. “I find Christopher Chaney’s actions to be perverted and reprehensible.”

Prosecutors said Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Fla., also targeted two women he knew, sending nude pictures of one former co-worker to her father. The judge noted the damage to the women was in some ways worse than what Chaney’s celebrity victims endured.

The women, identified in court filings only by initials, wrote in letters to Otero that their lives have been irreparably damaged by Chaney’s actions. One has anxiety and panic attacks; the other is depressed and paranoid. Both said Chaney was calculated, cruel and creepy.

“It’s hard to fathom the mindset of a person who would accomplish all of this,” Otero said. “These types of crimes are as pernicious and serious as physical stalking.”

Prosecutors were seeking six years imprisonment, but Otero said he was concerned that Chaney would not be able to control his behavior and had shown a “callous disregard” for his actions.
