Christopher David Long, a Canadian man who was arrested in July 2012 for allegedly hacking into Carly Rae Jepsen's computer and presumably targeting the singer's naked pictures, has pled guilty to charges of mischief and possession of stolen property. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the British Columbia native entered the plea on Tuesday, May 28.

In July, Vancouver Police Department told E! News that the police were investigating a cyber crime case related to Jepsen after the singer's management team contacted them. "One suspect, an adult male, has been identified but, at this time, he has not been arrested or charged as the investigation continues," the police's spokesperson said at that time.

Complaints were officially filed against Long in December, including fraudulently obtaining telecommunications services, unauthorized use of computer, mischief to data, identity fraud and possession of stolen property. The singer's nude photos were reported as some of the properties that Long allegedly stole.

The 28-year-old singer recently released a single called "Take a Picture". Her fans contributed to the making by voting for the lyrics online to complete the song. Jepsen debuted the song on "American Idol" earlier this month.

Jepsen is reported to perform in a concert at the Washington State Fair. She is scheduled to perform on September 20 at 7:30 P.M. The Washington State Fair and its annual concert include other performers such as international trio The Celtic Tenors, Cee-Lo Green, Carrie Underwood and Kid Rock.
