SAN DIEGO (AP) — A three-month house arrest ended Sunday for former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, who resigned in August after less than nine months in office amid a torrent of sexual harassment allegations from numerous women.
Filner, who had been San Diego's first Democratic leader in 20 years, fulfilled 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 had to stay in his downtown residential building and was subject to searches and visits at any time from his probation officer.
Pott told U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/1kAlmwL ) that officials did not get the GPS monitoring equipment set up until a week after the target date, which moved the day for his release to Sunday.
More than a dozen women went public with allegations against Filner.
He pleaded guilty to a felony for manhandling a woman at a fundraising event on March 6, 2013.
Filner also pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor battery charges, one in April when he kissed a woman without her consent at a "Meet the Mayor" event at City Hall, and the second in May when he grabbed a woman's buttocks at a cleanup event.
The former congressman has been ordered to serve three years of probation.
