After gaining access to personal and compromising photos of the celebrities he then sold them to various tabloid publications.
Chaney, who is currently jailed until sentencing on July 23rd, will be ordered to pay Scarlett Johansson around $66,000 in restitution for leaking her nude photos, and spend up to five years in jail.
