Suspect in celebrity hacker case ordered to Los Angeles

A federal judge ordered the Jacksonville, Florida, man accused of hacking celebrities' online accounts for nude photos and other private information to make his way to a California courtroom on November 1 to answer charges against him, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office said.

Christopher Chaney, 35, is accused of hacking into the accounts of more than 50 celebrities, including movie stars Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis and singer Christina Aguilera.

A grand jury indicted Chaney on nine counts of computer hacking for gain, eight counts of aggravated identify theft, and nine counts of illegal wiretapping. If convicted of the 26 counts, Chaney would face a maximum of 121 years in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. said.

The aggravated identity theft charge alone carries a mandatory two-year prison sentence, he added.

    If law enforcement is afraid to stop the terrorist wall street protestors hopefully homeland security will be called in. The protesters are nothing more than terrorist that threaten our economy and society. They need to be treated as terrorist.

      I don't know how it works in the US, but I have a friend who is a cop here in Canada. Sometimes they arrest someone, run him through the system and find out he has outstanding warrents in another province. They call the department that issued the warrent. Sometimes they arrange to have him transferred, but they usually don't. Budgetary issues. We all remember the TV show the Fugitive, how he would stay on the run, change his name, hide, always with Gerard on his tail. The reality is, he proabably wouldn't need to bother. There would be no Gerard.

      Actually, being male and curious, I did. I'm sure she is outraged by the invasion of privacy, and probably a bit embarassed by the exposure. However the pictures themselves are quite tame and not a bit trashy. She is beautiful and has nothing on her part to be ashamed of.
