Email and cell phone hackers take heed: Crime doesn’t pay. Christopher Chaney pleaded guilty Monday (March 26) to identity theft, wire tapping and unauthorized access to a computer when he hacked into the email accounts and cell phones of celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis, reports Radar Online.
Nude photos of the starlets eventually made the rounds on the internet. Johansson later told Vanity Fair that her photos were for then-husband Ryan Reynolds. Chaney was arrested in October after reportedly hacking into accounts of more than 50 people.
“I deeply apologize, I know what I did and that it was wrong. I just have to face that and deal with it and go forward,” Chaney said in an interview.
According to court documents, Chaney utilized the forwarding option in the celebrities’ email accounts to have a copy of every email delivered to his own account.
Chaney is currently in custody and will be sentenced in July, facing a maximum 60 years in prison.
