Man sentenced in ESPN stalking case

An insurance executive who secretly shot nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews has been sentenced to 21/2 years in prison.

Barrett, of suburban Chicago, agreed to a 27-month prison sentence after pleading guilty.

But Andrews called him a sexual predator and angrily argued in court for him to be sentenced for as long as the law allows.

Andrews works as a sideline reporter for ESPN's game telecasts. She will also appear on the new season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars .

Longtime rivals Agassi and Sampras were wearing microphones during the match, and the crowd at Indian Wells Tennis Garden in California got an earful during an exchange that started lighthearted but turned testy.

At one point Sampras mimicked Agassi's pigeon-toed walk, which drew laughs from the crowd. Then Agassi chided Sampras for being stingy.

Sampras responded with a high, hard serve that forced Agassi, who was teamed with Rafael Nadal, to duck.
