Bond increased for man accused of taping reporter

LOS ANGELES (WKOW) -- A judge has increased bond for an Illinois insurance executive accused of secretly nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews.

Michael Barrett was in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Friday to face one count of interstate stalking. Barrett's attorney David Willingham says his client has posted bond. Barrett was initially free on a $4,500 bond, but the judge increased it to $100,000.

The 48-year-old Barrett is charged with taking videos of Andrews through the peephole in her hotel room door. Federal prosecutors say he then uploaded it to the Internet as well as nude videos of other women also made through peepholes.

Prosecutors say Barrett tried to sell the Andrews videos to celebrity gossip site TMZ.

Barrett is scheduled to be arraigned in the same courtroom Monday.
