Bond increased for man accused of secretly taping ESPN reporter

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge has increased bond to $100,000 for an Illinois insurance executive accused of secretly making nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews.

Michael Barrett was in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on
Friday to face one count of interstate stalking.

Barrett's attorney David Willingham says his client has posted bond.

Barrett was initially free on a $4,500 bond.

The 48-year-old Barrett is charged with making videos of Andrews
through the peephole in her hotel room door, and federal
prosecutors say he uploaded to the Internet nude videos of other
women also made through peepholes.

Prosecutors say Barrett tried to sell the Andrews videos to
celebrity gossip site TMZ.

Barrett is scheduled to be arraigned in the same courtroom
