In this photo taken Oct. 26, 2012, Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi speaks during an interview in his office in San Francisco. After about two weeks back on the job, San Francisco's sheriff said he is humbled and ashamed of the domestic violence case that ended in his criminal conviction and nearly forced him out of office. But Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi said he would not accede to demands by the district attorney and the mayor that he recuse himself from domestic-violence-related programs in the county's jails.
