As the man convicted of stalking her faces sentencing in a Los Angeles courtroom, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews says she is “very nervous” about the outcome of the case.

Michael Barrett, a 48-year-old Chicago-area insurance executive, has pleaded guilty to interstate stalking and agreed to a 27-month prison sentence.

Andrews is expected to address the court and talk to reporters after the Monday hearing.

Her attorney has said she did not agree to the sentence outlined in the plea bargain, and a sentencing memo filed last month noted that she wants Barrett to pay her about $335,000 in restitution.

TMZ cameras caught up with Andrews, who said if it were up to her, Barrett would never be released from jail.

“[This case] has impacted my life for the last nine months, I’m very nervous,” she said before adding that the court date is a “very important” moment for her.

Andrews works as a sideline reporter for ESPN's game telecasts.

She will also appear on the new season of ABC-TV's "Dancing with the Stars."
