entertainment Updated: Mar 26, 2012 18:33 IST

A U.S. man is headed to court Monday on charges he hacked into the email accounts of celebrities including Scarlett Johansson, whose nude photos eventually landed on the Internet.



A plea agreement filed last week indicates Christopher Chaney will enter a guilty plea to nine counts, including wiretapping.



But Chaney's defense attorney Christopher Chestnut said he was working with prosecutors and wouldn't confirm the number of felony counts involved.

Prosecutors said Chaney hacked into the email accounts of Christina Aguilera, Mila Kunis and Johansson.



The maximum prison term facing Chaney on the nine felony counts is 60 years.
