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.

Ten years for a non violent crime sounds ridiculous to me. This is why prisons/jails are over crowded. Also this is why people like Lindsay Logan only spend 5 mins in jail.
