The hacker who leaked Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence's nude pictures has been put behind bars for eight-months for the crime.

George Garofano who was one of four men arrested in the case, pleaded guilty in April. He asked for leniency in sentencing, stating that he "faced a lifetime loss of rights because of the felony conviction."

Authorities said that the group used a 'phishing scheme' through emails, pretending to be Apple to gain usernames and passwords to access iCloud accounts.

Garofano must serve three years of supervised released for his breach of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as carry out 60 hours of community service.

Lawrence told Vanity Fair that she had been the victim of a 'sex crime' at the time of the leak.

She explained: "Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, does not mean that I asked for this.

"It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It's my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can't believe that we even live in that kind of world."
