George Garofano, 26, plead guilty in April to the massive 2014 hack that resulted in nude photos of dozens of celebrities being leaked onto the internet, including Jennifer Lawrence. Today, the United States Attorney’s Office in the District of Connecticut released a press statement explaining he has been sentenced to eight months in prison for the crime.
Lawrence was vocal about her outrage of the hack, noting in 2017, “I feel like I got gang-banged by the f—ing planet. Like, there’s not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me. You can just be at a barbecue and somebody can just pull them up on their phone. That was a really impossible thing to process.”
Garofano will report for his sentence on October 10th and is currently on $50,000 bail.
