In France, the sentence for piracy and hacking is up to 2 years imprisonment. However, if you have been phishing or stealing banking card details in the process, or so, you would be prosecuted for that specific offense and might get sentenced up to 7 years in prison…
Finally, hacking a governmental website (such as the tax administration, the police or army…) is considered as a crime and can potentially get you life in jail.
In a word: it depends on what you hack!
