UPI News Service, 03/15/2010
An Illinois man convicted of stalking and secretly taking nude video of ESPN reporter and upcoming "Dancing with the Stars" participant Erin Andrews was sentenced Monday to 30 months in prison.
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.
