Washington: The British man behind faked naked pictures of Emma Watson has managed to escape a jail sentence.

John Cavanagh fiddled with eight pictures of the `Harry Potter` star by digitally placing her head onto another girl’s body, before uploading them in May, reports Contactmusic.

A judge at Manchester Crown Court warned him he faced a jail term - but during a hearing recently he escaped a prison sentence.

Cavanagh was instead given a three-year community order with three years`` supervision and ordered to sign the sex offender’s register.

The fake images of the star, along with inappropriate pictures of minors, were discovered on Cavanagh`s computer.

He has been asked not to contact Watson for five years and has been banned from using the Internet for anything other than looking for employment.
