Miley Cyrus hacker pleads guilty to federal charges

Brandon Gee reports:

A 21-year-old who once bragged of hacking Miley Cyrus’ email and MySpace accounts told a federal judge today that he is addicted to the Internet and pleaded guilty to charges of credit card fraud and hacking.

Josh Holly was not charged for hacking Cyrus’ accounts and publishing racy photos he found in them, but federal agents found evidence of other crimes when they interviewed Holly and searched his computer in 2008.
