LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The man convicted of stalking ESPN reporter Erin Andrews and shooting nude videos of her through a hotel room peephole facing sentencing in a Los Angeles courtroom.
Michael Barrett, a 48-year-old Chicago-area insurance executive, has pleaded guilty to interstate stalking and agreed to a 27-month prison sentence. Barrett is suspected of renting hotel rooms adjacent to Andrews in three cities in 2008, including Milwaukee.
Andrews is expected to address the court and talk to reporters after the Monday hearing.
Her attorney has said she did not agree to the sentence outlined in the plea bargain, and a sentencing memo filed last month noted that she wants Barrett to pay her about $335,000 in restitution.
Andrews works as a sideline reporter for ESPN’s game telecasts.
She will also appear on the new season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
