BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man who hacked into more than 200 iCloud accounts of Hollywood stars and other people has been sentenced to eight months in prison.

 

George Garofano was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Bridgeport. After prison, he must serve three years of supervised release and perform 60 hours of community service.

The North Branford man was one of four men arrested in the 2014 hacking scandal that led to private photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kim Kardashian, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Vanessa Hudgens, Rihanna, Kate Bosworth, Hayden Panettiere, Lake Bell and others.

 

“It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime!” Lawrence told Vanity Fair in November 2014. “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting.”

Garofaono’s conspirator, Ryan Collins, 36, was sentenced to 18 months in jail, while Edward Majerczyk, 29, accused of orchestrating the phishing scheme targeting celebrities, was sentenced to nine months in prison.

The fourth man involved, Emilio Herrera, 32, has pleaded guilty and is scheduled to be sentenced next month.

 

Authorities say the hackers sent emails appearing to be from Apple security accounts that asked for usernames and passwords.

Garofano pleaded guilty in April and asked for leniency, saying he faces a lifetime loss of rights because of the felony conviction.
