iStockphoto/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — Christopher Chaney, the 36-year-old who admitted to hacking and posting online pictures of celebrities like Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in a Los Angeles courtroom on Monday.

Chaney was also ordered to pay more than $66,000 in restitution.

Johansson tearfully testified via a pre-recorded video about how humiliated she was that nude pictures she’d taken for then-husband Ryan Reynolds had leaked. 

Disney actress Renee Olstead testified in person, revealing that Chaney’s posting of her nude pics led to a suicide attempt.

Chaney, who admitted to cyberstalking some 60 victims, was arrested in October 2011 as part of a year-long investigation.
