Admitted Miley Cyrus Hacker Beats That Rap But Reportedly Pleads on 2 Other Charges

A 21-year-old who admittedly hacked into Miley Cyrus’ email and Myspace accounts and posted private images of the young singer hasn’t been charged with doing so.

However, Josh Holly, also known online as “Trainreq,” pleaded guilty today in federal court in Nashville, Tenn., to other charges related to his possession of about 200 credit card numbers and use of celebrity accounts to send out spam email, according to the Associated Press.

The Smoking Gun and the Tennessean also have stories.

An earlier Smoking Gun post provides additional details about the accusations against Holly in the Middle District of Tennessee case. He allegedly made over $100,000 in commissions in less than a year by directing visitors to celebrity sites to ringtone sellers.

He faces a maximum of 13 years and a $500,000 fine when he is sentenced in October.
