The Final Verdict is in for the Guy Who Committed Sex Crime Against J.Law

by: on | in Celebrity News | No Comments

Justice is… served?

It’s been over 2 years since the infamous celebrity nude photo scandal of 2014 — you know, the one in which private snapshots of Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Kate Upton, Becca Tobin and more leaked onto the Internet — and the final verdict is in on the perpetrator’s sentencing… and it might not be what you expected.

Back in May 2016, a man named Ryan Collins confessed to one count in the big case. The man pleaded guilty to hacking at least 50 iCloud accounts and 72 Gmail accounts, most of which belonged to female celebrities. (As it turns out, there were more than 600(!) victims.) BUT, he did NOT plead guilty to the actual leak itself, which is the absolute worst part of what Jennifer Lawrence called “a flagrant violation of privacy” and “a sex crime.”

Because of his pseudo-confession, the maximum penalty for his crimes was 5 years in federal prison — and the 36-year-old criminal didn’t even get half of that!

After Ryan agreed to a plea deal earlier this year, U.S. Attorney Bruce D. Brandler announced that U.S. District Judge William W. Caldwell sentenced the culprit to 18 months in federal prison. A year and a half. That’s it. K.

Celebrities send other stars NSFW pictures all the time. The proof:


Miley Cyrus to Nick Jonas

We know it's hard to remember a time that Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus weren't taking their clothes off in public, but back in the day, the Disney dream couple was doing ANYTHING but. So when pictures of the Hannah Montana star posing seductively in skimpy underwear (and one of Nick's shirts) and soaking wet in the shower got leaked in 2008, the world was SHOCKED — that was what Niley was really doing during their relaysh?!

Vanessa Hudgens to Drake Bell

If you grew up watching Disney channel, you remember the time a nude picture of High School Musical's queen was leaked. Her rep confirmed that the person in the photo was, in fact, her and that it "was taken privately." Apparently, Vanessa was underage at the time, which, according to People, meant that the shot was intended to then-boyfriend Drake Bell.

Jennifer Lawrence to Nicholas Hoult

J.Law was one of the many stars whose privacy was violated in last year's 4Chan iCloud hack. Instead of apologizing for the nude shots that hit the web, Jennifer stood up for herself in an issue of Vanity Fair.

"I started to write an apology, but I don't have anything to say I'm sorry for," she said. "I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship [with Nicholas Hoult] for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he's going to look at you.”

Drake Bell to Victoria Justice

In what was probably one of the worst accidents of all time, Drake Bell mistakenly tweeted a picture to his Nickelodeon counterpart that featured — wait for it — his penis. That's right. The former Drake & Josh star tried to show Victoria support by taking a picture of an episode of Victorious he was watching, but didn't realize the dangers of a reflective TV, which caught his nude nether-regions. He immediately deleted the photo once he realized what fans saw, but the damage was still done. YIKES!

Jennette McCurdy to Andre Drummond

Even though Jennette's ex said he wasn't responsible for the leak of her racy photos, the Sam & Cat star thinks differently.

"To anyone disappointed: I sent those pics to 1 person," she tweeted. “You can connect the dots. Shocked someone would stoop so low. I just speak w/ candor.”

Even though a few years have passed, no one actually knows who truly leaked the pics.

Rihanna to Chris Brown

Rihanna is not shy about her body, but when nude photos leaked in early 2009, she was disgusted.

"They were for my boyfriend at the time [Chris Brown]," the then-21-year-old singer said, adding. "If you don't send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel bad for him."

Adrienne Bailon to Rob Kardashian

Back in 2008, pictures of a bra-clad, booty-bearing Adrienne hit the Internet. People automatically they were assumed for then-boyfriend Rob Kardashian, which the former Cheetah Girls star later confirmed. Her rep said:

"The photos that have surfaced of Adrienne Bailon were stolen from her laptop over a week ago at an airport in NY and sent to several media organizations. These photos were taken in private and were intended only for Adrienne’s boyfriend, Robert Kardashian. Adrienne will be pursuing legal action against the person or person’s sending these private photos out. Adrienne is deeply sorry for any pain this may have caused to her fans.”
