Erin Andrews, accused stalker due in court


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Erin Andrews plans to be in a Los Angeles courtroom when a man accused of secretly filming her nude enters an expected guilty plea to stalking.

A hearing is set for Tuesday afternoon for Illinois insurance executive Michael David Barrett to enter the plea. Andrews’ attorney, Marshall Grossman, says the ESPN sideline reporter will attend and may call for a tougher sentence against Barrett.

Prosecutors have agreed to seek a 27-month prison sentence against Barrett, but he faces up to five years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000.

Barrett is suspected of renting hotel rooms next to Andrews three times and shooting two videos of her. He is accused of posting the videos online.

Andrews called the experience a nightmare in a September interview with Oprah Winfrey.
