Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan is a hacker residing in Los Angeles, California. In May 2018 she was sentenced to 5 years in prison after stealing $130,000 and naked photos of Paris Hilton.   Paris Hilton was present at the sentencing and said that she felt "justice was served." 
According to a probation report, Paystar Bkhchadzyhan was the girlfriend of Sevak Mesrobian who is a member of the Armenian Power gang and goes by the moniker of "40." He resides in Glendale, California a suburb of Los Angeles.  The couple have a two-year-old son together, who Bkhchadzhyan called 'the love of her life' in her sentencing submission. 
Paris Hilton Hack
Between 2015 and 2017, Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan hacked into the accounts of Paris Hilton as well as those of her father Rick Hilton and her sister Nicky Hilton in an attempt to steal passwords and other belongings of Paris, according to court documents which detailed the crimes but did not mention the victims who were later identified as Paris Hilton and her family. 
During this time, she managed to steal $130,000 and several nude photos although it is unclear what she did with the material. 
Bkhchadzhyan also gained access to Paris Hilton's email and impersonated her by instructing Paris's assistant to wire transfer $80,000 to one of Bkhchadzhyan's accounts. The scammer also used Paris's credit cards to make $40,000 reservations for a 2015 New Year's Eve party at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. 
On Monday, May 7, 2018 Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan was sentenced to 57 months in prison for hacking Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton was present at the sentencing and said that she felt "justice was served." She also said that Bkhchadzhyan "got what she deserved". 
Bkhchadzhyan also used the personal information of another victim to get a credit card on which she charged $81,000 and tried to buy a $50,000 Rolex watch and a $44,000 Tiffany & Company platinum and diamond jewelry set. She had to halt her fraud during a 10-month jail sentence for second degree burglary in 2016 and resumed immediately after she was released, according to prosecutors. 
iPhone Fingerprint Seizure Controversy
In April 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation authorities obtained a search warrant forcing Paystar Bkhchadzhyan to press her finger against an iPhone that had been seized from her boyfriend Sevak Mesrobian's home in Glendale, California. The phone contained Apple's fingerprint identification system for unlocking, and prosecutors wanted access to the data inside it. 
However some legal experts say there should be a higher bar for biometric data because providing a fingerprint to open a digital device gives the state access to a a large amount of personal information which could be considered a form of self-incrimination. 
"Unlike disclosing passcodes, you are not compelled to speak or say what's 'in your mind' to law enforcement," Gidari said. "'Put your finger here' is not testimonial or self-incriminating." 
The issue partly revolves around the prevailing legal stance toward fingerprints. Currently, law enforcement routinely obtains search warrants to examine property or monitor telecommunications, even swab inside an inmate's mouth for DNA. But fingerprints have long remained in the class of evidence that doesn't require a warrant, along with providing handwriting samples or standing in a lineup. Courts have categorized fingerprints as "real or physical evidence" sourced from the body, unlike communications or knowledge, which cannot be compelled without violating the 5th Amendment.
"Before cell phones, much of this information would be found in a person's home," Dery said, noting that search warrants commonly authorize police to march into a home and seize evidence. "This has a warrant. Even though it is a big deal having someone open up their phone, they've gone to a judge and it means there's a likelihood of criminal activity." 
George Mgdesyan, an attorney who has previously represented both Bkhchadzhyan and Mesrobian, said he was unsure why authorities were trying to unlock her phone. He said he was not representing Bkhchadzhyan in any federal criminal matter and believed the probe included hacking and possibly "other issues."
