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.

None of their naked bodies are worth one HOUR of jail time......

Seems like the punishment doesn't fit the crime in this. Maybe 3 years, but 10?

It's a sad day when MJ'S's drug dealer Dr Murray gets 2 and 1/2 years for manslaughter and he didn't admit gilt. THis guy said he did it and still got a decade.. Not county jail but prison? I don't see that the crime is worthy of that sentence. It's absurd!

He got more time in jail than people who kill people in car accidents, or rapists. Not to disregard his crime, but I know I'll sleep better tonight knowing that celebrities are safe once again to take pictures of their tits or whatever else. You go justice!
