Court documents say an insurance executive has agreed to plead guilty to interstate stalking after nude videos were secretly made of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews. The documents filed Thursday say Michael Barrett will plead guilty in Los Angeles federal court. He could face up to five years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000.

Barrett is suspected of renting hotel rooms adjacent to Andrews in three cities last year, altering the peepholes and shooting videos of Andrews in two of the locations.

He also is accused of uploading the videos to the Internet and trying to sell them to celebrity gossip site TMZ this year.
