AceShowbiz - The man who leaked naked photos of Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton has begged the judge overseeing his case to show leniency in his sentencing.
George Garofano has filed documents in his criminal case, hoping for a short prison sentence and home detention after prosecutors recommended he spend 10 to 16 months behind bars.
Garofano insists he has learned from his mistakes and accepts what he did was "legally and morally wrong", adding, "It will take me a while to forgive myself for this, and I am disappointed in myself for anyone that I hurt, the victims, my family, and my friends".
In the paperwork, obtained by The Blast, he also wrote: "I feel remorse for anyone that could have been affected by this on any scale, public or private. It is a part of my life that I will always regret, as it has never been a reflection of who I am as an individual".
Garofano, 26, has also reminded the judge that he has never been in trouble with the law before.
His attorney adds, "Of course, he was old enough to know better even back then, that the conduct he was engaging in was wrong. But he now stands before the Court having matured, accepting responsibility or his actions and not having been in trouble with the law since".
Garofano also explains his family's name has been tarnished in his small home town.
He pleaded guilty to hacking over 240 iCloud accounts, including those of Lawrence, Upton, and Kirsten Dunst in April, but his attorney maintains his client only played a small role in the scheme and was not the mastermind behind the hacking.
He will be sentenced later this month.
