Michael David Barrett pleaded guilty in December to interstate stalking after prosecutors accused him of following the ESPN reporter to at least three cities and shooting the videos through hotel peepholes. Barrett, 48, of suburban Chicago, agreed to a month prison sentence after pleading guilty but it was up to the judge to decide how long he would actually serve. Andrews urged the judge at the hearing for a harsher sentence and said she fears for her life every time she enters a hotel. Barrett admitted renting hotel rooms next to Andrews three times and shooting two videos of her while she was naked. He was accused of posting the videos online and trying to sell them to Los Angeles-based celebrity gossip site TMZ last year. Barrett cried as he addressed Andrews in court, saying he would spend the rest of his life regaining the respect of his friends and family and atoning for his mistakes.
