Scarlett & Mila's Hacker

Pleads Guilty to Federal Charges

3/26/2012 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christopher Chaney struck a plea agreement with prosecutors
The man who hacked Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis -- leaking several nude photos onto the Internet -- has pled guilty to 9 felonies.

As we previously reported, Christopher Chaney struck a plea agreement with prosecutors -- in which he agreed to plead guilty to 9 counts including identity theft, wiretapping, and unauthorized access and damage to a protected computer.

Chaney was taken into custody immediately after entering his plea. He will be sentenced in July.

As part of the deal Chaney will have to hand over his computers, external drives, and his cell phone.

Chaney was busted by Feds back in October. He initially pled not guilty.

It is too bad that this man's life and future is crap now. Too bad instead of incarcerating him at tax payer expense we couldn't just put him under house arrest and make him work for the government for ten years.

One of the local female news bobble-heads out here in L.A. said on tonight's 6pm news that this guy should get life in prison. I'm guessing nude photos of her were taken from her phone. Normal people don't have nude photos of themselves on their cell phones.

I agree that he should do time, but I think the time he spends should be used in a way that will help the internet become more secure. Catch Me If You Can comes to mind ...how the system during that time was improved by someone who looked to exploit vunerable weaknesses in the USA's financial and airline sectors. I also think that people like celebrities are never really VICTIMS - as they are constantly exploiting themselves in ways that are ALWAYS to their own advantage! An example? Take any Men's magazine - like GQ - and see which stars willingly reveal whatever is expected for the right price. Pop Quiz time: Which High School Musical Star recently agreed to do a threesome in a swimming pool for a movie scene. Also, which Pop Singer can be recalled getting 'Dirty' enough in a music video to force you to distract the kids in the room. I can safely say I have not one photo of myself that has ever been taken that is vunerable for exploitation ... this guy who will now do 'time' somehow knew that he would find what he was looking for! Is that SURPRISING to anyone? When the careers of some stars start to wane, it is not difficult to predict that it will soon be coming off anyway, like Cher once proved on a Military Flight Deck not so long ago. Fake Outrage will soon be heard from the fans of the next 'Wardrobe Malfunctioning Celebrity'! The lesson here for me is enjoy the benefits of a non-descript life of obscurity - until you have a Crystal Meth Moment ...and decide to shave yourself bald in public :(
