SCARLETT JOHANSSON‘s “hackerazzi”, the guy who outed her nude pics online, has been set free by the FBI. Wait…what? Wasn’t he due to be convicted and sentenced to 121 years in the slammer for all the counts of hacking he perpetrated against a list of more than 50 celebrities?
Christopher Chaney, 35, a Florida man who was arrested by the FBI after a year-long “Operation Hackerazzi” sting to catch the suspect, or suspects, who’ve been hacking into celebrity email accounts was released on a $10,000 bond, current news learned.
He’d been charged with 26 counts of identity theft and unauthorized access to a protected computer and wiretapping.
Oh, whew. So he’s just been released on bail. Which means he still has to stand trial, and still can be convicted.
Meanwhile, Chaney’s release has been negotiated on the following conditions:
“No new criminal activity, no possession of firearms, no use of controlled substances or excessive use of alcohol, pre-trial supervision and drug testing, treatment and evaluation, he must live with third party custodians, travel restricted to the Middle District of Florida and Central District of California and no access to any computer or other device with Internet access.”
Way to go U.S. Attorney’s Office!
Problem is, did Chaney act alone in his hacking activities? Or is he part of a ring of rabid “hackerazzi” who’re all set to release naked pics of Mila Kunis like they’ve promised to?
Is Scarlett ready to let loose her Black Widow on these cyber criminals and kick “hackerazzi” butt if that happens?
