Connecticut man sentenced in celebrity photo hacking scandal

( CNN) A Connecticut human was sentenced to eight months in prison Wednesday for his role in a phishing strategy that exposed intimate photos, many belonging to celebrities.

He was one of four people charged in the 2014 hacking scandal, in which private photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst and others were published online.
“It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime, ” Lawrence told Vanity Fair in 2014. “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change.”
