"She's terrified. She's depressed," Steve Andrews said of his daughter on Wednesday at a civil trial in Nashville, according to NBC News. "She is not the girl that we used to know."
The 37-year-old Fox sideline reporter and Dancing with the Stars host filed a $75 million lawsuit against Marriott International, Michael Barrett and others, alleging negligence and invasion of privacy stemming from the 2008 incident.
Barrett pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for gouging the peephole out of Andrews' hotel room door, secretly filming the star and then posting the explicit footage online.

Andrews wiped tears from her eyes during her father's testimony.
"[That was the] first time in my life as – sorry – as her father where I didn't know if she was safe or not. I feared for her life," Steve said through tears.
Barrett shot the footage while Andrews was in Nashville, where she was covering a college football game.
Her father said Andrews was so disturbed by the footage that she became physically sick, according to the AP.
"This was about the worst thing that could have happened to her from the perspective of self-pride, comfort in the way you look," Steve said.
