The computer hacker who admitted to accessing Scarlett Johansson’s email account and leaking nude photos of her online could potentially face up to 60 years in prison, as well as a $2.2million fine.

From the Daily Mail:

Jobless Christopher Chaney, 35, also pleaded guilty yesterday to nine other counts – including the hacking into the email accounts of singer Christina Aguilera and actress Mila Kunis.

Chaney, of Jacksonville, Florida, was arrested in October as part of a year-long investigation of celebrity hacking that authorities dubbed ‘Operation Hackerazzi’.

Prosecutors said he illegally accessed the email accounts of more than 50 people in the entertainment industry between November 2010 and October 2011.
