erin-andrews-stalker.jpgErin Andrews was in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday to talk about Michael Barrett, the Westmont insurance executive who plead guilty to taping her nude.

Andrews called Barrett a "predator" and said that he should "never see the light of day"

Andrews, 31, said Barrett's actions "have had a devastating impact on me, my family and my career."

She told the court she is now routinely subjected to crude remarks by stadium crowds when she is on the job.

Barrett's plea is expected to mean that he'll spend only 27 months in prison, even though the maximum penalty is five years. Andrews naturally wants the harshest sentence possible.

"I am a victim of this sexual predator. I would like to see him immediately put in prison for as long as possible," Andrews, 31, told the judge.

She said she fears for her safety as long as he's free.

"I have nightmares," she told the court.

"I walk in crowds and I see him in my peripheral vision. When I'm alone in my house, I have fears that he's going to walk inside and hurt me.

"I don't know him. I've never met him. I don't know why he chose me."

The sentencing is set for Feb. 22.
