Christopher Chaney – the 35-year-old Florida man accused of hacking into the email accounts of celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, and Christina Aguilera – will plead guilty on Monday to nine felony counts.
The charges include computer hacking and illegal wire-tapping, according to documents filed yesterday.
He could face up to 60 years in prison.
Chaney apologized to his hacking alleged victims in an interview conducted shortly after his indictment back in October.
“I know what I did was probably the worst invasion of privacy someone could experience…I’m not trying to escape what I did,” Chaney said. “It was wrong – and I have to just face that and go forward.”
He claimed he did not leak nude photos of Johansson online.
