New York, May 4 (ANI): The man who was convicted of stalking ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews surrendered Monday at a federal prison in Atlanta-which is apparently his victim's home city.

Michael Barrett, 48, was originally assigned to a penitentiary in central California, but when he called the prison Saturday to confirm, he was told he was not on the list, a source said.

He was ordered to Atlanta at the last minute, the source said.

Andrews, who said she lives in fear of Barrett, resides in Atlanta's affluent suburb of Dunwoody.

"He absolutely did not choose to go to Atlanta. He has no friends or family there," the New York Daily News quoted a source as saying.

Barrett, a divorced insurance executive, was hoping for placement in Oregon or Wisconsin, within driving distance of relatives who might visit, said the source.

According to a prison official, he will get a review within the next 28 days, and can request a transfer, but might not be eligible for 18 months. (ANI)
