    Bond Increased for Alleged Stalker of ESPN Reporter

    A judge has increased bond to $100,000 for an Illinois insurance executive accused of secretly making 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.

    The 48-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 say Barrett tried to sell the Andrews videos to celebrity gossip site TMZ.

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