LOS ANGELES (AP) - An Illinois insurance executive accused of
secretly making nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews is
expected to appear in court for the first time.
Michael Barrett was due in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on
Friday to face one count of interstate stalking.
At the hearing, charges will be read and conditions of his
release could be discussed. He is free on $4,500 bond and scheduled
to be arraigned Monday.
The 48-year-old Barrett is charged with making videos of Andrews
through a peephole in her hotel room door.
Prosecutors say Barrett tried to sell the Andrews videos to
celebrity gossip site TMZ.
Interstate stalking carries a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000.
