A man who hacked the email accounts of the actress Scarlett Johansson before sending nude photos of the star to gossip websites has been jailed for 10 years.
Christopher Chaney, of Jacksonville, Florida, accessed the personal accounts of more than 50 celebrities.
Nude pictures of Johansson, 29, intended for her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds were subsequently published on the internet.
The 35-year-old admitted wiretapping and unauthorised access to a computer. He was jailed by US District Judge S James Otero yesterday. Judge Otero said: “These types of crimes are as pernicious and serious as physical stalking.”
