Barrett, a 48-year-old insurance executive from Chicago, Illinois, was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison. The sentence follows his guilty admission of following ESPN reporter Erin Andrews for 18 months and filming her in hotel rooms, exercising and curling her hair, through peepholes.

In total, eight videos were made. Andrews previously paid Barrett for the rights to the videos, and pledged to go after anyone who attempted to release them.

Barrett was also ordered to pay Andrews $7,366 in restitution fees.
