Chaney got private photos of several of these women, including Johansson had taken pictures of herself naked and send them to her boyfriend. The photos appeared online.

“I’ve been really humiliated and embarrassed. I think Christopher Chaney actions are perverted and objectionable, “said Johansson. Several of the women involved were identified only by their initials. Among them, there are two that are not celebrities including a former co-worker whose nude photos Chaney were posted on the website and mailed to his father.

Judge James Otero said that such actions are equal to physical harassment, and that the defendant showed a “callous insensitivity to the victims.” Although the prosecution sought to six years in prison for Chaney, Otero said he was concerned that the man could not control his behavior, increasing jail time and monetary compensation down to $ 66,179 USD.

Chaney was arrested in October 2011 after a year of investigation into the hacking of celebrities. In his computer showed numerous private photos and a document met the victims’ personal information.
