SAN DIEGO (CBSLA.com/AP) — A three-month house arrest for San Diego’s former Mayor Bob Filner is ending.
Filner’s confinement ended Sunday, fulfilling a sentence for felony false imprisonment and two misdemeanor charges of battery involving victims of sexual harassment, his lawyer Earll Pott told local media.
Filner resigned in August after less than nine months in office amid a torrent of sexual harassment allegations from numerous women.
Filner had to stay in his downtown residential building and was subject to searches and visits at any time from his probation officer.
“The first condition of his probation sentence was to serve 90 days of home confinement. And he’s done that. There are additional conditions of probation that we’ll be continuing to monitor for at least the next 18 months,” San Diego County Chief Probation Officer Mack Jenkins told KNX 1070’s Tom Reopelle.
