Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, who left office in a scandal over allegations of sexual harassment, has been charged with one felony count of false imprisonment and two misdemeanor counts of battery, San Diego Superior Court officials said Tuesday.
The charges, filed by the state attorney general’s office, relate to three alleged victims, identified as Jane Doe 1, 2 and 3.
A hearing is set for 10 a.m. in Superior Court.
Update: Filner has pled guilty on all charges. As part of a plea deal, he now faces three months of home confinement and three years of probation after his house arrest ends. Filner also agreed to mental health treatment, the length/scope of which will be decided by a mental health professional, and to forfeit his pension for a six-month period.
