Last year he broke into Selena Gomez’s personal Facebook account, and now Gareth Crosskey is spending the next 12 months in jail. The British hacker was arrested back in February in connection with the January 2011 incident in which he posed as Gomez’s stepfather to gain access to the social networking site.
From there, Crosskey began posting messages like “Justin Bieber Sucks!” as well as a video of himself hacking Selena’s profile.
Gareth eventually pled guilty to violating the UK Computer Misuse Act and will serve his time. The British police hope that this will “act as a deterrent to any individuals thinking of participating in this type of criminal activity.”
