Actor to Plead Guilty to Copyright Infrigment for Leaking Screener

...has agreed to plead guilty to copyright infringement for leaking an awards screener of Black Swan and other films to file-sharer BitTorrent. [The actor's] L.A. apartment was raided by FBI agents in April after a MPAA piracy officer tipped the feds that several high-quality copies of feature films had shown up on the site.
Federal sentencing guidelines call for a sentence between 10 to 16 months, but the government is seeking three years of probation and restitution
