    Not even sure he would have been sentenced to jail.
    it was 2 celebrities the rest were various people....I think this is setting a precedent for electronic crimes, the law has taken some time to catch up

    Ten years is for the multiple felonies he committed, not any conjecture, It is less than 2 months per felony

    No, I'm not saying he should be punished because someone could have committed suicide. I'm saying what he did was absolutely despicable, and the fact that the same exact type of thing has hurt so many beyond repair is just an example of how low it is. I don't feel sorry for the guy. No conjecture, hacking should carry a fitting punishment, this guy was a repeat offender and I think the punishment is fitting. It's like robbery, and if someone had been found guilty to fifty counts of robbery he might be looking at a similar sentence.

    I don't think this guy would have gotten this kind of punishment if he had hacked 50 non-celebrities.

    Maybe, maybe not, but he still should have gotten it.

    From the article in the OP:
    "Prosecutors said Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Fla., also targeted two women he knew, sending nude pictures of one former co-worker to her father. The judge noted the damage to the women was in some ways worse than what Chaney's celebrity victims endured."

    The judge didn't base the sentence on the celebrity case, more on the ordinary women that were targeted.

    A quick google gave this:
    If its the first offense.. the person may face no less than two years in prison and no more than ten years. If its the second offense, they may face no less than 4 years and no more than fifteen.

    So 10 years doesn't seem to be abnormal.

    I saw the pics that leaked online. I can understand the feelings of those who were hurt by it. This is the most horrible thing to do to people and once they got exposed online for billions of people to potentially see , it would hurt anyone. So yes its a harsh sentence , but the man who did this didn't seem to care about hurting anyone else.

    Weird to thing that it's less risky for you to rape a woman than to hack some e-mails.

    I think its been posted...he's been busted 3 times for this same offense. They finally threw the book at him pretty hard over it.

    I know a lot of people that got under a year county time for burglary. But I know some that got sent up the river too. Usually parolees though.

    You're comparing apples and oranges. Because of the way Federal sentencing works with the sentencing guidelines judges have very little discretion in sentencing.
