A federal judge in Los Angeles sentenced Michael David Barrett, 49, and ordered him to pay $7,366 in restitution, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Barrett, of Westmont, Ill., pleaded guilty in December to charges including intent to "harass or to cause substantial emotional distress" to Andrews. He admitted posting the video online in an effort to distribute his videos.

Eight videos of Andrews were posted online, federal authorities said. He had planned to sell the videos to celebrity Web sites.

Andrews said during a December court hearing she has been humiliated and embarrassed "and my career has been ripped apart."

"I am subject to crude comments," she told the court in December. "I walk into stadiums, and fans make crude comments to me. I have nightmares about this sexual predator."

Barrett had been charged with shooting video of Andrews through peepholes in hotel room walls.
