The FBI said Ryan Collins, 36, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, admitted guilt this week to two criminal charges. Both charges are for illegal use of computers, the FBI said.

美国联邦调查局表示,36岁的宾夕法尼亚人瑞安·柯林斯(Ryan Collins)本周承认两项刑事指控罪名。美国联邦调查局表示,这两项指控都是由于非法使用计算机。

The FBI’s announcement did not name the victims. But it said Collins obtained email and other private information from 122 people. Most are “female celebrities,” the FBI said.

联邦调查局的声明并未说出受害者的名字。但是声明称柯林斯获得了122人的电子邮件和其它隐私信息。美国联邦调查局表示,其中大多数为女明星。

The case has been called “Celebgate.”

此案被称之为“明星艳照门”。

The FBI said it has no evidence that Collins posted the nude photos and videos of female stars. Those images began appearing on the Internet in 2014.

美国联邦调查局表示,没有证据表明柯林斯发布了女明星的裸照和影片。2014年这些图像开始出现在互联网上。

But the assistant director at the FBI’s Los Angeles, California, office said Collins still did major harm.

但是联邦调查局加州洛杉矶办公室副主任表示,柯林斯还是造成了重大伤害。

“By illegally accessing intimate details of his victims' personal lives, Mr. Collins violated their privacy and left many to contend with lasting emotional distress, embarrassment and feelings of insecurity,” said Assistant Director David Bowdich.

副主任大卫·鲍迪奇(David Bowdich)表示,“柯林斯通过非法获取此案受害者个人生活的私密细节,侵犯了她们的隐私,并让很多人面临持久的精神损害、窘迫以及不安全感。”

Bowdich said the FBI investigation is continuing.

鲍迪奇表示,联邦调查局的调查仍在进行当中。

The FBI said this is how Collins operated: He would send the celebrities emails that appeared to be from Apple and Google. The emails asked for sign in and password information.

联邦调查局表示,柯林斯是这么操作的:他以苹果或谷歌的名义给这些明星发邮件,这些邮件要求提供登录和密码信息。

Collins used this information to download entire Apple iCloud accounts, including photos and videos, the FBI said.

美国联邦调查局表示,柯林斯利用这些信息下载苹果iCloud账户的全部内容,包括照片和视频。

Bowdich said the case shows the importance of not sharing personal information, such as email passwords. That goes for both stars and regular people, he said.

鲍迪奇表示,此案表明了不要共享邮箱密码等个人信息的重要性。他说,这条同时适用于明星和普通百姓。

Apple and Google do not send emails asking for personal information, he said.

他说,苹果和谷歌不会发送邮件要求提供个人信息。

Federal prosecutors will recommend that Collins receive an 18-month prison sentence, according to a government press release.

根据一份政府新闻稿表示,联邦检察官将会建议判处柯林斯18个月有期徒刑。

Prosecutor Eileen Decker said Collin’s victims have a right to make statements and attend all hearings in his case.

检察官艾琳·德克尔(Eileen Decker)表示,受害者有权进行陈述和参加柯林斯案件的所有听证会。

The charges were announced in Los Angeles, California, where many of the victims lived. But the FBI said the case will be heard by a court in Pennsylvania, near Collins’ home.

这些指控是在许多受害者居住的加州洛杉矶是宣布的。但是联邦调查局表示,这起案件将会在宾夕法尼亚州,也就是柯林斯家附近的一家法院进行审理。

Collins is married and the father of two children, according to website  Lancasteronline.com. It said Collins worked in a sales job and as an art director, but recently showed interest in working as a chef.

根据Lancasteronline.com网站表示,柯林斯已婚并且是两个孩子的父亲。该网站称,柯林斯从事销售工作,并担任艺术总监。但是最近他表现出了从事厨师工作的兴趣。
