Ex-San Diego Mayor Sentenced
Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner is going to spend three years on probation and three months under house arrest. A judge accepted Filner’s plea deal today.
Under the agreement, Filner is forbidden from holding public office and will be required to undergo mental health treatment.
The disgraced ex-mayor pleaded guilty in October to grabbing and fondling three women while in office.
The 71-year-old was charged with felony false imprisonment and two misdemeanor counts of battery. Filner resigned in August. (Metro Networks Inc.)
