Scarlett Johansson

Deserves $66k from Celeb Hacker ... Says U.S. Govt.

6/26/2012 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man who hacked nude photos of Scarlett Johansson should be forced to pay the actress $66k for her troubles ... at least that's what the U.S. Government is recommending to the judge in the case.

The government has filed new documents with U.S. District Court in California ... in which prosecutors explain how celeb hacker Christopher Chaney should be sentenced for his crimes.

As we previously reported, Chaney pled guilty to 9 hacking-related felonies back in March ... after stealing racy photos of several starlets including Mila Kunis.

According to the docs, the gov. believes Chaney should be sentenced to 71 months in prison ... and forced to pay restitution to some of his victims ... including:

-- $7,500 to Christina Aguilera
-- $66,179.46 to Scarlett Johansson
-- $76,767.35 to actress Renee Olstead

The gov. also believes Chaney should pay $10k to AFTRA Health Fund.

In the docs, prosecutors argue that Chaney's crimes were even worse than that of Michael David Barrett -- the guy who videotaped a naked Erin Andrews and posted the footage on the Internet.

Barrett was sentenced to 30 months in prison for his crime.

Chaney is due back in court on July 23 when he will be sentenced.

WHO? Should be no surprise. The federal government thinks money grows on trees and everybody is rich. The state of Virginia limited the lawsuit payments to $100K for each of the families of the students killed at Virginia Tech. And the federal government is saying that seeing a boob and butt (which she already showed in a magazine photo) is almost as bad as murder?!? My how the government has some horrible double standards!!! Kill some unknown college kid, who cares. But mess with a rich celebrity, then we will destroy you.

Are you serious? 66k is like 5 dollars to her anyway and its not like she doesn't have multiple photo spreads where she's damn near naked.

this is the same as conrad murray to pay the jackson family 100million for restitution the family gave it up because they know conrad murray will never make that much money ever. Theese ladiies should do the same, the only one who has a chance will be christina.

Ridiculous. 66k for exposing Scarlett Johansson "man-ass" and 7500 for Christina? LMAO, he didn't do us any favors with the Christina pics, I don't even like looking at her WITH clothes on.

These females don't deserve that money. Their own stupidity is what exposed their nude bodies. And don't preach to me that those were private pictures. YOU ALWAYS know when you take a nude for someone, it will not stay hidden. Idiots. The whole lot of them.
