Jennifer Lawrence has finally gotten some justice. According to The Guardian, George Garofano, hacker and exposer of nude photos of JLaw and other celebs, was sentenced to eight months in federal prison.

George, who was accused of illegally hacking the iCloud accounts of 240 people, including Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst and releasing it to the public, was also sentenced to 3 years supervised release.

The incident occurred in 2014, when nude photos of celebrities were circulating on the internet. Jennifer contacted authorities and her camp released a statement through her publicist. “This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” the statement read. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

George was one of four hackers who have been sentenced in this case. The other three have been given sentences between 9 and 18 months in prison, The Guardian reports.

Jennifer’s career has been unscathed by the scandal. The actress went on to enjoy success as a actress, starring in films including “Joy,” X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Passengers,” “Mother” and “Red Sparrow.”
