The man accused of capturing videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews through a hotel peephole apparently had at least 16 other female victims in his sights, according to court documents. Michael Barrett is expected to be sentenced to 27 months in federal prison for interstate stalking under a plea deal he struck with prosecutors. He is scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles federal court on March 8 for sentencing. According to AP, videos of the other women were also uploaded to the Internet:
A man who stalked ESPN reporter Erin Andrews and shot nude videos of her through a hotel room peephole videotaped 16 other women and ran background checks on 30 people, including female sports reporters and TV personalities, according to court documents….
Barrett also allegedly conducted 30 Internet background checks that can produce birthdays and home addresses, the document said. The filing did not name the other alleged victims or say what information he obtained or how he may have used it.
Andrews plans to go to court to tell the judge that Barrett’s sentence is too light for this extreme privacy violation. She is also seeking some $300,000 from the man in restitution for the emotional turmoil he has put her through.
