It looks as though the guy behind "The Fappening" has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for that phishing scam that resulted in nude photos of various celebrities ending up all over the internet.

According to United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, United States District Court Judge William W. Caldwell sentenced Ryan Collins, 36, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to 18 months in federal prison for a felony violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. He was taken into custody immediately after sentencing. Collins pled guilty in May to one count of unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information.
