Bob Filner Faces Sentencing Today
The former mayor of San Diego, who gained national fame as an ever-growing roster of women came forward with claims that he had harassed and/or groped them while in office, faces sentencing today:
…on felony and misdemeanor charges.
He pleaded guilty in October to charges related to placing a woman in a headlock, kissing another woman and grabbing the buttocks of a third.
In a plea agreement, prosecutors say they will recommend that he get three months of home confinement and three years of probation.
The 71-year-old Democrat left office Aug. 30, amid widespread allegations that he sexually harassed women.
