The man who hacked Scarlett JohanssonMila Kunis, and others -- leaking several nude photos onto the Internet -- has just been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

36-year-old Christopher Chaney pled guilty to 9 felony counts back in March -- including identity theft, wiretapping, and unauthorized access and damage to a protected computer -- after hacking into the celebrity email accounts ... and dozens of others.

During the sentencing, Chaney -- who was arrested in October 2011 -- was also ordered to pay $76,000 in restitution to ScarJo, Christina Aguilera, and "Still Standing" actress Renee Olstead.

But 10 years is a walk in the park -- Chaney was originally accused of hacking into the email accounts of 50 victims ... including dozens of celebs ... and faced 121 YEARS if convicted on all counts.

Man that is one creepy looking motherf*cker. But it is a pretty long sentence considering people sometimes get less for manslaughter.

I agree that the punishment does not fit the crime, but since Americans don't have any royalty the celebs are your kind of royalty and in end its huge business runned by powerful people that more or less own the court system. With skills that this guy have he should been awared a goverment job, it is totally stupid and insane to lock up people for 10 years for doing this. If the goverment had hired "criminals" like this guy maybe 9/11 could been stopped before it ever took place.

Another example of how our crooked "justice system" will punish you alot worse when you defame a celebrity rather than doing minor like molest a child or kill some one during a robbery...

He should have just raped and killed them. Then he probably would be out in five. Or just walk.

I actually think it revealed the mystery about Scarlet Johansson and I'm glad. I knew she had little titties and those pictures proved it. Push up bras can make a 10 year old boy look busty and these pics, once again, proved it.
