Scarlett Johansson

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

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.

Pay restitution for WHAT? Generating more interest in these actresses, which directly translates into more MONEY being earned by them. I challenge them to show the HARM done to them.

Didn't they already waste our money investigating this guy who provided us with pictures we'd end up with anyway? Why even involve the federal government? They have better things to do with their time, like bang hookers in Columbia.

Good. This guy is a frickin' loser. Amazing what people think is ok to do, although they'd have a fit if anyone ever did what he did to them.

Didn't this guy guess their passwords from doing Google searches or am I thinking of someone else? If so, that hardly constitutes him as a 'hacker.' That term is thrown around so loosely these days that 'hackers' don't even use it any longer.

Im just glad that I do not keep naked pictures of myself in my inbox. I dont even have naked pics of myself. We have truly become selfobsessed people.

Given Scarlett Johansson's well publicized sexual reputation, this computer geek may have gotten the real thing, for free, if he had enough self confidence and gave it a shot.
