A man accused in a criminal harassment case involving singer Carly Rae Jepsen has pleaded guilty in an Abbotsford, B.C., courtroom.

Christopher David Long, 25, pleaded guilty Monday to mischief to data and possession of stolen property.

The case made headlines last July, when Vancouver police revealed they were investigating allegations someone hacked into a personal computer belonging to Jepsen.

Police Const. Lindsey Houghton confirmed then that the allegations related to images of Jepsen, but would not confirm gossip column reports that the material contained sexually explicit images of the singer.

In December, police announced Long had been charged with five offences in the case, but what exactly Long stole or what he did with the data is not clear. His sentencing hearing has been set for September.

Jepsen, who is from Mission, B.C., soared to fame last summer with the catchy hit Call Me Maybe. The single reached the top of the charts in Canada, the U.S., Australia, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
