Gordon Ramsay’s in-laws sentenced for hacking

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay (pictured), known both for his restaurants and his TV series Kitchen Nightmares and Hotel Nightmares, has also had an In-Laws Nightmare: his father-in-law, Christopher Hutcheson, and Hutcheson’s sons Adam and Christopher, have been given jail sentences for their roles in an “unattractive and unedifying” conspiracy to hack Ramsay’s computers.

The BBC reported that Ramsay’s father-in-law had been sacked by the chef as chief executive of Gordon Ramsay Holdings Ltd, after which he and his sons conspired to access Ramsay’s computer systems nearly 2,000 times between October 2010 and March 2011.

The court at the Old Bailey in London was told that the men aimed to “obtain material that might embarrass Mr Ramsay or be useful in the ongoing dispute with him”. After they were discovered, the court heard, Christopher Hutcheson sent an email to his sons saying “Guess we have been rumbled. Bit late though.”

Christopher Hutcheson was jailed for six months while his sons were given four-month prison sentences suspended for two years.
