RE: Erin Andrews Peephole Stalker Gets 2 1/2 Years

The stalker of ESPN sideline "reporter" Erin Andrews (the guy who drilled a hole in the wall of her hotel room(s) and filmed her, among other things, combing her hair and ironing her clothes while nude) has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison, and ordered to pay some restitution.
Michael David Barrett, 49, of Westmont, Illinois, received a 2 1/2-year term and was ordered to pay $7,366 in restitution to Andrews, who is also a contestant this season on Dancing With the Stars.
At first I thought, "2 1/2 years in prison seems like a lot (prison is very, very bad); after all, what he did was disgusting, but people have committed far more serious crimes have gotten by with far less."

But in the last paragraph of the People magazine story on the peephole freak's sentencing, we get this:
Prosecutors told the court that Barrett posted on the Internet another 32 videos that showed another 16 as-yet-unidentified victims.
Whaaaatttt? This guy was a serial peephole videographer, who posted videos of 16 other people? Holy crap send this guy away for life, why did People magazine take so long to get to that little bit of information?

Erin Andrews, probably not watching the peephole video online.

that outfit erin is wearing is probably what she also wears to shower these days.

how did this guy get away with popping his camera up to the peephole so many times? it had to take a bunch to get that many naked tapes. how many tapes of fully clothed women doing boring stuff did this dude go through?
