LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Illinois insurance executive accused of secretly making nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews is expected to make his first court appearance Friday.

Michael Barrett was due in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to face one count of interstate stalking. He is free on $4,500 bond and scheduled to be arraigned in the same courtroom on Monday.

The 47-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 add Barrett tried to sell the Andrews videos to celebrity gossip site TMZ.

Interstate stalking carries a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000.
