Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner avoids jail time



Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner was sentenced Monday to 90 days in home confinement, three years probation, and a series of fines totaling about $1500 as part of a plea deal.

The 71-year-old pleaded guilty in October to kissing or grabbing three women at campaign events or at City Hall — one a felony false imprisonment charge, the other two misdemeanor battery charges.

The three women were among 19 who accused him of offensive behavior during his tenure as mayor and as a congressman.
Filner will not serve prison time.

Filner previously pleaded guilty after resigning from office.
