Alleged Miley Cyrus Hacker Pleads Guilty in Unrelated Case
On Monday, August 1, Josh Holly appeared in front of a judge in Nashville, Tenn. The man, who also claimed to be addicted to the Internet, pleaded guilty to stealing 200 credit card numbers and hacking into celebrity MySpace pages, using the pages to collect more than $100,000 for selling bogus ringtones in a spamming scam, according to Wired.
The FBI was able to track down the 21-year-old Tennessee native after he publicly bragged to Wired, an online publication, under a fake name about his hacking conquests.
Holly has never been charged for the hacking of Cyrus' email account, and the FBI refused to comment on whether or not this case will be brought before a judge. Regardless, Holly is still facing up to 13 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. Sentencing will occur on Oct. 31.
