Filner Sentenced to Home Confinement in Sexual Harassment Case

By: JTA

Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, who resigned amid sexual harassment accusations, was sentenced on Monday to three months of home confinement and three years’ probation for acts against three women.

Filner, 71, pleaded guilty to the charges against him in October in exchange for a plea bargain that would keep him out of jail.

State Superior Court Judge Robert Trentacosta also ordered Filner not to seek nor hold public office during his probation. Filner, who had served 10 terms in Congress before becoming mayor, also was fined $1,500.

In a statement before the sentencing, Filner apologized to his family, his staff and his supporters, and to “the women I have hurt and offended.”
