When it comes to Scarlett Johansson's nude pics, the U.S. government is on her side.

The government has filed documents with the U.S. District Court in California over how Chris Chaney should be sentenced for hacking into the e-mail accounts of several celebrities between October 2010-November 2011 and publishing Scarlett's private nude pics on the web. That's according to Huffington Post. Not only is Chris likely facing 71 months in jail, but he will be forced to pay Scarlett just over $66,000!

Chris will also be paying other celebrities restitution for hacking into their accounts. The government has recommended $7,500 for Christina Aguilera and $76,800 for Renee Olstead. It's likely that Mila Kunis will receive some sort of compensation as well.

Scarlett hasn't publicly commented on the recommendations, but it's fair to say she will be happy with them. "Just because you're in the spotlight or just because you're an actor or making films or whatever doesn't mean that you're not entitled to your own personal privacy," said Scarlett to CNN last fall. "I think no matter what the context, if that is besieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong."

Do you think a 71 month sentence for Chris is adequate or excessive?
