FuzzNugget writes "A 25-year-old man from Abbotsford, British Columbia has plead guilty to several charges involving the unauthorized access to a computer and phone belonging to singer Carly Rae Jepsen, who also hails from BC. It's alleged that after obtaining nude photos from the singer's computer and phone, he attempted to sell them to media outlets. The allegations also include releasing a fake sex tape claming to be of the celebrity. As a result, he was charged with a number of offenses, from unauthorized use of computer to (oddly) fraudulently obtaining telecommunications services, mischief to data, identity fraud, and possession of stolen property. It will be interesting to watch this unfold and see how Canada's laws on computer-based crimes compare to those of the U.S., particularly the notorious Computer Fraud and Abuse Act."
