Michael David Barrett, 48, the “Peeping Tom” who was caught stalking and video-taping ESPN reporter Erin Andrews changing clothes in her hotel room, has been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison.

Along with the sentencing yesterday, U.S. District Judge Manuel Real ordered Barrett to pay $5,000 in fines and $7,336 in restitution, and may be required to pay even more in order to compensate ESPN for the added security and lawyers they hired to protect Andrews.

“There are no words to tell Ms. Andrews how sorry I am for what I’ve done to her,” Barrett said in court yesterday. “I hope someday she can forgive me.”

Andrews would not accept Barrett’s apology, saying, “You violated me and you violated all women. You are a sexual predator, a sexual deviant and they should lock you up.” She tearfully told reporters outside the courthouse that she was unhappy with the verdict. “Thirty months isn’t enough,” she said.

Despite trying to move on with her life, an effort that includes being on Dancing With the Stars, Andrews knows she will be haunted by Barrett and what he did for the rest of her life. She admitted she is always paranoid now when staying in a hotel and said that as long as the naked video of her is still circulating the Internet, “this will never be over for me.” (Yahoo! News)

    Settle down Erin – he saw you naked and made video of it — relax – 30 months is plenty. He never touched you and did not commit a violent crime.
