In 2008, Erin Andrews was secretly filmed through a peephole at the Nashville Marriott and again at the Radisson Airport Hotel by Michael David Barrett, a former Chicago-area insurance executive, in which she was seen completely nude in her hotel room and was released online in July 2009. It quickly went viral, leading to David Barrett’s arrest by the FBI in October 2009 and pleaded guilty to the interstate stalking charges in December 2009. Then, in March 2010, US District Judge Manuel Real sentenced David Barrett to 30 months of imprisonment, pay US$5,000 in fines, and US$7,366 in restitution.
