Christopher Chaney, the man accused of hacking into the personal details of celebrities like Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansson, has been released under a certain set of conditions.
The 35-year-old Jacksonville, Fla., resident was charged with hacking into personal celebrity e-mail accounts and stealing private details including their nude pictures.
After cracking his victims' passwords, the hacker set up an automatic e-mail forwarding program that enabled him to view their incoming private messages via a duplicate copy.
It took the FBI about a year of Operation Hackerazzi to track the hacker. If convicted, Chaney faces around 121 years in prison.
According to the San Jose Mercury News, authorities said that Chaney stole the nude photos Johansson took of herself; they were later posted on the Internet. Although he offered some material to celebrity blog sites, but there is no evidence that he profited from his scheme.
E! Online reported that he was released under certain guidelines and 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.
