Christopher Chaney is in big trouble.

The Jacksonville, Florida man, 35, was arrested Wednesday morning by the FBI for identity theft, wiretapping and other crimes -- all related to the alleged leak of private emails and photos, some of them nude, featuring Christina Aguilera, Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, celebrity stylist Simone Harouche and dozen of other stars, TMZ reports.

The FBI released its grand jury indictment Wednesday afternoon, and reports that Chaney exploited public information to access email accounts, computers and cell phones of his purported victims.

TMZ reports that Chaney acted alone and received no monetary gains for leaking the photos and private emails.

If convicted on all counts, he faces 121 years in federal prison.

In late September, shortly after her nude pics stormed the web, Johansson, 26, admitted she felt violated by the leak. "Just because you're an actor or make films or whatever doesn't mean you're not entitled to your own personal privacy," the We Bought a Zoo actress told CNN. "If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong."

Kunis, 28, was accused of sending her racy, leaked pics to Friends with Benefits costar Justin Timberlake. The actors slammed that rumor in a joint Sept. 18 statement.

"At no time did Mr. Timberlake and Ms. Kunis exchange inappropriate texts or emails," they said. "The insistence that there is any inappropriate correspondence between the two parties is entirely false."
