Erin Andrews is still going Dancing With the Stars. The dude who shot her in the nude is just plain going away.

The ESPN reporter turned up at U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to watch a judge sentence her peeping/camcordering Tom to more than two years in federal prison.

Michael David Barret, a 48-year-old insurance executive had until now been under house arrest in his native Illinois on a $100,000 bond.  Barrett had copped to stalking Andrews in December.

He was busted last October for shadowing Andrews, 31, as she covered sporting events around the country. He would find out where she was staying and then would try get an adjoining room, drill a peehole and then shoot her on the sly. His candid camerawork was uncovered after he tried to sell the footage online.

Andrews appeared at his plea hearing in December and said she hoped he'd "never see the light of day." She filed a petiton last month demanding Barrett pay approximately $335,000 in restitution.

According to court documents, Barrett didn't stop with Andrews, but also targeted 16 other women as part of a "long-term obsession." While their identities were not disclosed, prosecutors described them as "female sports reporters, as well as other television personalities."
