What happened: Christopher Chaney allegedly hacked into the personal email accounts of Hollywood celebrities, including Scarlett Johannson and Christina Aguilera, and released private photos online. He was arrested on various hacking charges and faces up to 121 years in prison if found guilty on all counts.
The apology: "I was almost relieved when they came in and took the computers inside," he told Action News of Jacksonville, Fla. Oct 12. "I deeply apologize," Chaney said. "I know what I did was probably the worst invasion of privacy someone could experience. I'm not trying to escape what I did. It was wrong. And I have to just face that and go forward."
