Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, who resigned in disgrace after dozens of allegations of sexual misconduct and sexual harassment of women, went through the formal booking and release process at the downtown jail on Saturday.
Four days earlier, Filner pleaded guilty to one felony count of false imprisonment by violence and two misdemeanor counts of battery for sexually harassing three women while in office.
The plea agreement came on the same day Filner was charged in a criminal complaint by the state Attorney General's Office. The stipulated agreement calls for the former multi-term congressman to be placed on three years probation and avoid jail time, although he is expected to spend three months on home confinement.
According to the Attorney General's Office, Filner will also be barred from ever seeking or holding public office. He will also be required to undergo mental health treatment while he is on probation. If he violates probation, he would face up to six months in jail.
Filner is scheduled for formal sentencing on December 9th.
