CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Sportscaster and TV host Erin Andrews took the witness stand Monday, breaking down repeatedly and telling jurors of the devastation she continues to feel after a man secretly shot nude videos of her and posted them on the Internet.
Andrews sobbed as she recalled how some in the media speculated that she was doing it to attract attention to herself before the FBI made an arrest.
"Probably for three months, everybody thought it was a publicity stunt," she said, choking up on the stand. "That ripped me apart."
Andrews said she was terrified that the videos would go viral and she would never be able to get them off the Internet after a friend told her about them in July 2009.
"I just kept saying, 'We gotta get it down. We gotta get it down.' And we can't get it down! And we're never going to get it off," she testified.
Andrews has said the hotel could have done much more to protect her. But are there also things you can do, to take matters into your own hands? Ken Bouche of Hillard Heintze explains more.
