LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Florida man was sentenced Monday to 10 years in federal prison after being charged with hacking into the email accounts of Scarlett Johansson and other Hollywood stars.

Christopher Chaney, 36, pleaded guilty in March to nine charges of unauthorized computer access, wiretapping and other felonies.

He obtained and published nude pictures of Johansson, and investigators also found pictures of singer Christina Aguilera and actress Mila Kunis on his computer.

In addition to the prison sentence, Chaney was ordered to pay a total of $76,000 to actresses’ computers which he had unauthorized access to.
