A Florida man has been arrested in a cell-phone hacking case that led to naked photos of Scarlett Johansson ending up online.

Christopher Chaney, 35, was arrested Wednesday and charged with 26 counts of computer hacking, aggravated identity theft and wiretapping. He faces a maximum penalty of 121 years in federal prison.

Calling the investigation "Operation Hackerazzi," officials say Chaney hacked into the personal e-mail accounts of dozens of people in the entertainment industry. The indictment also lists Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis.

"This [arrest] comes as a relief to the victims, many of whom suffered great distress," Steven Martinez, assistant director in charge of the FBI's L.A. field office, said at a news conference.

Chaney allegedly obtained victims' passwords and set their e-mail accounts to automatically forward to him, even if users reset their passwords, the charges state. This allegedly gave him access to financial information, movie scripts, photographs and private e-mails, as well as to contact lists to find other victims.
