Former San Diego Mayor Charged With Three Crimes
Accused sexual harasser Bob Filner has been charged with three crimes.
The Associated Press reports Filner, who resigned in August, was charged on a felony count of false imprisonment and two counts of misdemeanor battery. The felony count alleges false imprisonment “by violence, fraud, menace and deceit” but does not elaborate. The victims were identified as three Jane Does.
Filner resigned in August. At least 17 women alleged sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior, including groping, unwanted kissing and suggestive comments. Filner, a former congressman, was the first Democrat elected mayor of San Diego in 20 years.
