Ex-San Diego Mayor Bob Filner faces sentencing

Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner will be sentenced Monday for kissing or grabbing three women at campaign events or City Hall, once with enough force to qualify as a felony.
Filner, 71, will not serve prison time under a deal with prosecutors announced when he pleaded guilty in October.
The plea deal calls for three months of home confinement, three years of probation and mandatory mental health treatment. Fines, court fees and restitution are to be added Monday.
The deal includes a felony false imprisonment charge and two misdemeanor battery charges.

The felony charge said Filner used force to restrain a woman at a fund-raising event March 6. The misdemeanor charges say he kissed a woman on the lips without her consent at City Hall on April 6 and grabbed a woman’s buttock after she asked to take to have her picture taken with him at a rally May 25.
Filner was elected mayor in November 2012 after serving in Congress for 20 years.
This year, 19 women accused him of offensive behavior during his tenure as mayor and as a congressman.
