One of the four hackers responsible for "The Fappening" leak a few years back is sentenced to 8 months behind bars.
Do you remember a couple years ago when Jennifer Lawrence and a slew of other celebrities had some inappropriate nude photos of themselves leak online? It was a part of a massive hacking scandal dubbed “The Fappening.” Well it turns out one of the guys responsible for leaking all those nude photos is about to serve some jail time unsurprisingly.
According to TMZ, a judge has sentenced George Garofano to 8 months in federal prison for his contribution in the leak. In addition to his prison time, the judge also hit Garofano with 3 years supervised release once he gets out too.
The 26-year-old pled guilty back in April and admitted he'd posed as a member of Apple's online security to access usernames and passwords. Garofano was just one of four people charged in the massive celeb hacking scandal, which began in 2014 and saw photos published online claiming to show Jennifer, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst and others. Those other hackers have already been sentenced, with terms ranging from 9-18 months in prison.
In other related news, Jennifer was just spotted holding hands with her art-dealer boyfriend Cooke Maroney in NYC this past weekend, solidifying that they're still going strong.
